Re: 2002 CBR 954 milage

My 03 had 3,100 in september when I bought it.

I think the calculated average for annual usage in determining normal mileage for resale value is around 8,000 per year so no your good. Did you get a good deal?????

The most important question is does it make you happy. If so then the deal was good.

Get the shocks serviced, CCT done and you'll be right for another 20k

Re: 2002 CBR 954 milage

Isn't it kind of late to be asking this question?

You should be fine. Several people have logged over 60k miles on their 929/954's. Keep up with the maintenance and she'll run forever.

Re: 2002 CBR 954 milage

i bought my 02 954 last nov and it had 11k on the bike then, i just turned 20k last week so no it is not excessive and as long as it gets serviced when it is due there should be no issues. there are alot of blades out there with high miles, i remember a thread on this site that a guy had over 200k on his blade.

Re: 2002 CBR 954 milage

Be prepared for a tranny rebuild sometime soon. Hopefully your bike doesn't have any issues, but this issue is somewhat common with the 954.

I'd like some more info on this if you have it. I know a chap who had a new gearbox (warranty) at 24,000 miles and then again at 48,000 miles (Warranty). It seems ok now though and he said he never used to use the cluth on upshifts. Honda mec told him its something to do with undercuts on the gears being reduced on newer models

Cheers

It has been explained to me and I saw the wear on the parts from my bike. But I cannot remember the exact names or reasons why the bike was popping out of gear.

These square shaped parts get rounded corners over time. I think these are the "dogs" on the gears. The rounding off of these corners cause slippage and the transmission pops out of gear under acceleration. The popping out of gear causes damage to the shift forks and/or the rod that the shift fork rides on.

Like I said, I can't remember the exact description.

When I had my tranny work done, they replaced first gear, second gear, and third gear, a shift fork, the shift drum, and some other parts I can't remember. It cost $1080 in parts and labor.

I had a Factory Pro Shift Kit installed. This makes for more positive shifts and is supposed to reduce the likelihood of rounding off the dogs in the future.

15000 miles later and so far so good, but it does feel like the aftermarket Factory Pro spring is losing some of its tension.

I did not have the gears "undercut". "Undercutting" is not necessary and is a track, performance modification for the most experienced racers. It is not worth the expense even for agressive street riding.

Yeah, a mate got 196,000km out of his 929; only prob was a bit of cam lobe wear.

CCT is a weak point; your mech will be able to hear when it's wearing out.

Re: 2002 CBR 954 milage

Transmission issues are going to be due to rider style and how the bike is ridden, for this bike anyhow. They are pretty solid bikes, nothing less than you'd expect from Honda's flagship liter bike.

Did you do clutchless upshifts at all?
