I got 99 problems and my CBR's 1...

Bought a 2008 CBR1000rr, for a great price, with 3900 miles on it a couple weeks ago. Clutch seemed different to me and seemed to engage at the last 1/4"-1/8" of the lever action. Very little friction zone.

Took to Honda, mech rode it, says it seems normal.

Riding down I-10 and I am in 4th I hit the throttle hard, and the bike revs from 5krpm to 8krpm then back to 5krpm before speeding up, happens very fast and no I am not loosing tire traction doing so.

Anyone heard of this problem, and/or help. Or do I just convince Honda to replace my clutch and the assembly.

sounds like the cable might just need replacing or adjusting. at least id check that before i went replacing the clutch.

not sure about the 08 1000RR but my brother's 2004 has a hydraulic clutch. Is your hydraulic? I hear those 08's have a ton of issues, not to scare you.
3900 is super premature for clutch issues, do what Kevin says, if its hydraulic try bleeding the fluid lines.
