CBR 1000 2008 MECHANICAL PROBLEM

Hello to everyone
I would like to describe you my problem and if anyone can help me with some how it is welcome . I bought a new cbr 1000 at june . I performed the first service at 1000 km and at the 6000 km before my second service sudendly a noice was heard from the engine . it was like somthing broke . i took the bike to the mechanical engineer and he told me tha the machine is off !!!!

How that happend??? is this hapen to anyother ? it is unacceptable 2 months bike with 6000 with the engine off . i dont know excactly what element went off but the result is that the engine iss off.

they told me to replece only the broken elements . is that write ????

i suppose at least to replace the all engine , not to say to give me a new bike

It's not right. I would push the dealer to change at least the engine.

Re: CBR 1000 2008 MECHANICAL PROBLEM

You need to provide a much clearer description of the problem if you want opinions.
It would depend on what exactly is wrong.

Re: CBR 1000 2008 MECHANICAL PROBLEM

the fact is that i did the first service at 1.200 km and at 6000 km i had an indicator for the paraflue liquid . i replenish the liquid and after 2-3 days while i was drive a noice heard from the bike . it was like something was broken into the engine . the bike didnt stop but it was tha noice . i took the bike to the engineer and he told me that i was not very lucky because the pistons had the problem , the engine went off.... what can i say . i am now i month without bike .. i am waiting ....

Re: CBR 1000 2008 MECHANICAL PROBLEM

I think you're saying that it ran low on engine oil until the warning light came on?
If it ran that low over 4800km I think they're going to ask how often you were checking the oil level as part of your regular maintenance.
Whether that will have any bearing on your claim though I don't know.
If it siezed a piston due to oil starvation then I would think a new engine would be warrented as the bores may be scored and the cams and crank may have suffered as well but I would think the descision will be theirs rather than yours.

Re: CBR 1000 2008 MECHANICAL PROBLEM

it wasnt alarmed the indicator for the oil but for the paraflue , the liquid for the cooler . also i had change the oil at 1200 km , is it normal to damage the bike after 5000 km ?? i had before kawasaki , yamaha honda ( again ) , aprilia , but none of that bikes had any problem if i dint change the oil exactly at a specific time . so if you dont change the oil after 5000 km the bikes engine goes off???

Re: CBR 1000 2008 MECHANICAL PROBLEM

I don't know what "paraflue" is - do you mean coolant maybe? Even Google doesn't explain it :-)
No, there's no big deal about changing the fluids exactly on time but you still have to keep an eye on their levels to ensure they don't get low enough to cause serious damage.
It's not normal to do damage at 5000kms unless you ran it low on oil or coolant or overheated it.

Re: CBR 1000 2008 MECHANICAL PROBLEM

Does the '08 have a temperature gauge?

It has a temperature gauge and a overheating indicator too.

IMO, after 5k km the bike is new, so that things schouldn't happen. It's not normal that with not to low oil pressure and not overheaten, the engine is gone. Even when somebody rode it hard.

By the way. When the coolant level is to low, you schould not add cold liquid when engine is hot. I'm not saying that you do that, but don't know.

Re: CBR 1000 2008 MECHANICAL PROBLEM

If it has a gauge didn't you notice the higher temperature?
You said there was an "indicator" for the coolant - do you just mean it was overheating or is there an actual level indicator?
I agree absolutely that this shouldn't happen if it has oil pressure and sufficient coolant but if an indicator came on then there must've been a problem?
Temperature gauges don't usually work on steam, only when immersed in fluid. As the coolant level or system pressure drops the temperature gauge will rise until the fluid level drops below the sender and then it'll show "normal" temperature - until the engine seizes from the heat.
You can add coolant to a hot motor but you _must_ have the engine running and add the coolant very slowly so it heats up before it reaches the hottest parts of the engine. You also have to be very careful of the steam that will be displaced out of the radiator filler when you pour the coolant in.

sc59 has an indicator that shows actual temperature level, and antother one that blinks when an engine is overhiting (2 blinkers, one red that shows that there is main problem and one that shows which problem it touches - oil pressure or overheating)

That's true and maybe that's what happened.

I'm not so courageous.

Re: CBR 1000 2008 MECHANICAL PROBLEM

Thank you for the tips ,i love bikes but i am not specialist at the mechanical parts as you are . the fact from my point is that i had 2 months the bikes , i did 1 service , on indicator was alarmed , i checked the manual it was represented temperature witch refered to cooland liquid and in 2 days happen that . from my little experience in electronics i know that when something wasnt fixed write it is the most possible to occur the problem at the first months . ok maybe i did something wrong but i am sure it wasnt so big to make the engine gout of service . and i believe that the dilear should replece the all engine and not only the some parts .
