I live in FLORIDA USA. The cbr600rr has been down for almost a year. Will the rust be a problem? Also would I need to check or change the oil it's new oil but like I said it's almost been a year?

Re: Rust in the engine

With that sort of condensation in the top end, you could reasonably expect to have water/moisture in the oil. For the relatively small price, I would replace oil and filter.

Assuming the motor's intact and in the bike, I would make up a spray bottle of 20:1 fuel/two stroke oil and spray into top end, leave overnight and then run the next day.

Others might have a more 'modern' approach

Re: Rust in the engine

^ Agreed, just change the oil - it's cheap enough.

Next time a bike is gonna sit for awhile or is in extended storage, pull the sparkplugs and spray a little fogging oil down into the combustion chambers. This is especially important if you live in a high humidity/salt water location.

You can use something like this, for example:

-'02 Silver/Black CBR 954RR
-'06 Black/Metallic Gray RC-51

-'11 Graphite Black CBR 1000RR
-'08 Pearl Orange CBR 600RR (sold)
