Re: 2008 Fireblade Recall

Yep, I got the clutch recall letter yesterday. Honda of America is also sending a mechanic to determine why it's burning oil like crazy...2 qts. in 800 miles!
I'm being told they're likely going to replace my engine.

to be continued...

Re: 2008 Fireblade Recall

I just received the same letter. I didn't realize that 08 CBR1K had inner clutch problem. Does anyone have any details on what the problem is? Thanks.

rode it home in august. this is my first experience with this type of thing. it is playing on my mind a bit. the clutch feels pretty good in action. a little clunky from neutral to first, but now every time i shift i am wondering is it supposed to be like this?

It does that from neutral to first so dont worry about that bit, looks like the clutch problem is an American thing as none have suffered here "yet" fingers crossed

Re: 2008 Fireblade Recall

Hello,
I also received the letter, took the bike to authorized servce and they replaced the part.

would also like to ask following questions regarding the 08 1000rr.

On the bike there are two ventilation fans,
Does any one know when the left one starts?

Also noted that on the black painted surface of the Exhaust pipe has slightely deformed and changed color.

Has any body noticed above symptoms.

Thanks.

Lrge thorn in the side of the 08 Honda dealer should change it for you.
