So i took the blade out with a mate and he noticed i was getting alot of blue smoke out the exhaust, we bought it back home and it was pretty bad, i had noticed it smoking before and i think other Lber’s even mentioned it aswell but we always put it down to cold weather.
We also noticed that is was popping and backfiring while the throttle was totally shut, we took the oil cap off and it smelt pretty strong of petrol, my friend is a decent mechanic and thinks its the injectors firing to much fuel in and flooding everything, also may explain why sometimes i only get 85 miles before the light comes on.
I also took it in for an early service before i went away last week as it seemed to be burning alot of oil, looking at it now i think its as much as 1 lite for 500 miles!!!:w00t:
Im taking it in to honda today so will let you know what they say.
I have not used it on track and have not been hard on it as its been winter and after my accident i have been taking it easy. SO im pretty dissapointed as i may aswell have bought a ducati!! Anyone experience a similar problem?
Sorry to hear this rixxy, unfortunately my ex had experienced it when we took a trip over to Slovakia one summer. His CBR600RR never showed anything going wrong previously as he is a mechanic and always kept his bike in tip-top condition.
About a 100 miles into Germany on way to my home country his bike stalled after we filled up at a petrol station and approached traffic which we started filtering past. My bike stalled as well while filtering but fired it up and it ran perfect from then on. His bike on the other hand just went down-hill from there, started coughing, backfiring and spat out clouds of smoke. Kept stalling and we had to visit every 2nd or 3rd petrol station to fill up. He nursed it to my home town but by the time we got there we both were smelling of fumes and all our clothes in the panniers :w00t:
took it to a Honda garage where they just kept guessing. The oil smellt of fuel as well so we had to leave it behind.
Got back to the UK two up on my bike and the following weekend hired a van and went to collect it. My ex stripped it and found that the ECU was dead. It gave no reading at all. Injectors were fine.
So may I suggest to take a look at the ECU before trying everything else. Hope this helps you solve the problem you are having
