Reigning Irish Champion Martin Finnegan is once again back with Klaffi Honda aboard their CBR 1000 RR.  He will contest the Irish Road Race Championship as well as the Superbike and Supersport classes at the TT and the Southern 100.

The Klaffi Honda team have a wealth of experience in pure road racing and they will be using that to help prepare their bikes for the extreme conditions produced during the races.

The bikes have to deal with jumps, sudden shocks, and vibrations, not to mention stone chips as well as brutal gear changes and hard braking.

Klaffi are running a titanium Akrapovic exhaust system which has been specially modified for the TT adding 15PS on overall performance.

They also have opted to run an STM slipper clutch which will give a more predictable ride and minimises the risk of over-revving the engine during downshifts.

Good brakes are essential and will be supplied by TRW Lucas along with the foot rests. Last season the team ran  CRQ pads also from Lucas, and they were happy with their performance.

To help prevent damage from stones the team are using a Becker carbon fairing which will help minimum weight and a maximise rigidity and strength.

With all their pre season preparations in place the Klaffi Honda team are eagerly awaiting the start of this season which is shaping up to be as competitive as ever.
