Re: 1000RR locking rear tire?

Sounds like a pile of BS to me. Besides once should always have a very close relationship with one's clutch lever. I know that I had a problem when I test rode the 929 the first time. The rear wheel *suddenly* locked up cause I had lazy foot from the fooking VFR I was riding at the time. Sounds like something straight out of the Max Biaggi Excuse Book.

I think that if your bike was burning 3 quarts of oil in 2000 miles you would know something was wrong. Besides, wouldn't you hit the kill switch of you saw your oil pressure light was on?

Re: 1000RR locking rear tire?

Yeah, but if it happens to you in the middle of a corner, you ARE going to eat ****, clutch or no clutch.... Hopefully this is only an isolated problem...

I'm actually partial to "Spaceballs - the flamethrower". But I find it a hard line to just drop into a conversation...

Re: 1000RR locking rear tire?

Could this have anything to do with the 600RR Recall?

Re: 1000RR locking rear tire?

Found it:

http://www-odi.nhtsa.dot.gov/cars/pr...odel_year=2003

But that just makes the rear brake hard/impossible to use. Not locking it up... And if you're a fair-weather rider, it should never corrode anyway.
