2008 1000RR - got the crank noise, past the warranty extension. Is this detrimental?
Hi, new guy here but I've creeped for a while.
Picked up an 08 blade in pristine condition a few thousand miles ago. No oil burning, but just recently I have started to hear the famous "tractor idle" from the clutch. Did the clutch loading test and sure enough the engine quieted right up.
My bike is past the 5 yr from purchase mark... So what should I do?
I know the recall letter says it doesn't affect "performance or reliability" and hell, that super charger "weeeeeeiiiiiiiiing" sounds badass, but I don't want a crank failure.
Anyone else riding a current gen blade that didn't get the replacement?
