1999 CBR 900rr Maintenance

Whats going on ppl!? Im starting this thread to help me understand methods, technics, and practices that will help save money and time doing maintenance on my CBR. Im pretty new to posting threads and stuff so I dont know if this would be approriate!? But what the hell! if you want to help Awesome!

I just started riding about 4 years ago and I know nothing about taking care of my bike mechanicly, oil changes, break fluid, etc...

Around my way it cost up to $350 to have my oil changed and bike looked at and any additional work makes my price for maintenance go up almost $500 bones more! So yeah Im like WTF there has to be a better & cheaper way! Any thoughts or suggestions on what to do keep my bike running and performing at its potential would be efff'n super!

If im in the wrong place asking, just let me know.

Kind Regards.

Get a service manual and then you'll be ready to do all maintenance and then some.

Re: 1999 CBR 900rr Maintenance

Better to get a workshop manual - Clymer or Haynes. You'll save much more than the purchase price the first time you do a service!

Servicing is pretty straightforward - no way it's worth $350! Start with the easy stuff - oil/filter change, air filter, spark plugs.

Keep a record of what you have done, date & mileage, and staple the receipts for the parts to it - that way you keep a nice service history for the bike.

Re: 1999 CBR 900rr Maintenance

Nice one - when you read it, you'll never want to go to a garage again!

I'm not brilliant with a spanner (wrench to you guys?) but basic servicing really is easy. My last service cost me 20!

As already stated, all the information you need is already available in the workshop manuals. For anything else, just ask here :-)

Re: 1999 CBR 900rr Maintenance

Some things can be a bit awkward, especially changing plugs. Make sure you have a good set of tools before you start, especially a deep reach plug spanner and a good quality allen key set.
A rear stand helps a lot too, I use an electric hoist and plastic rope round the headstock / subframe when working, makes brake suspension and chain jobs a doddle (thats easy if you are not English).
If you are going to learn maintenance, you have one of the easiest models to work on, everything is accesable, fairings and panels actually come apart easily and quickly, with the tank off you can access everything you might need to get too, (except for the plugs!).
Any probs, give a yell, we love to help and it does make us feel superior!
Cheers

I also got a PDF copy of the 1998 Honda 900rr Parts Info & Drawings.

Yes, '98 and '99 are the same bike.
