hey hi...

you people ridin this model CBR600RR '05?

like to ask whether anyone installed frame sliders for this 600.

cos i went boonsiew & stamford motors to enquire, they replied tat this model not

recommended to fit frame sliders.

in an event of an accident, the skeleton joint might get injured cos softer compound.

1000RR more robust for frame sliders thou.

dunno how true, so ask ard first.

anyone installed oredi & which motordiam?

:cheeky:

 

i'm ridin a '05 black/silver version.

stil runnin in at the moment.

but i find this bike gets heated up easily. the highest i've reached so far is 108degree celius.

anybody wanna comment?

wats the 'skeleton joint'? how would sliders damage this 'joint' over and above a cowl without sliders when the bike is dropped on its side?

 

temperature, mine oso i find after awhile the temp hovers at about 108C, seems to be the 'steady' temp at cruising. i haven yet drag above 10k rpm so donno will get even hotter anot. manual sez engine cuts out when temp exceed 130 or something rite? shd be normal lah hor.

 

 

 

 

on a side note, felt so shiok finally can afford to buy one of the 2 'dream bikes' i been eyeing, some more so rare on the road..... and skali so many people buying now!

It's true: it's more fun to ride a slow bike fast than to ride a fast bike slow. Admittedly, though... It is MOST fun to ride a fast bike fast!

issit true that engine will cut off at certain high temp?? my CBR600F cuts off when at 100+ degrees celcius... but its the idling becums lower and then stalls itself today when i riding cos heavy traffic... my bike normal riding won't exceed 90 degrees celcius... the most 85 degrees celcius..

while i've never experienced it myself, i do recall reading in the manual that the engine cuts off when temp exceeds a particular point. i also recall reading that its a failsafe mechanism rather than 'engine wont work/spoil' kind of event.

 

but thats the RR with the EFI. not sure bout your F.

mines the Fi version of the CBR600F .. wat i experience is my idling gets lower and lower and dies off.. tried to start but die off the next sec... leave the engine to cool down for 45 mins and its all back to normal liao...

hi mechwira...

the skeleton is the main frame of the bike, joint is the point of contact with the sliders & frame.

afterall if one really wans to install frame sliders, gotta drill a hole leh.

definitely feelin heart pain one.

so how? you decided to install a pair?

i'm still ponderin over the advice given. :sian:

 

mine normally cruisin ard 90C+, the max temp i've attain so far is oso 108C.

manual recommend one to off ignition once it hits above 120C.

anyone knows why newer models get heated up so easily?

or izzit tat we got to change the coolant tat comes along inside?

 

i'm ridin the same design as you [mechwira].

tink the full black scheme for 600cc is available in the states only.

euro & japan version for black is a mixture of black/silver.

anyone care to meet up next time for some discussion?

when im cruising at speed 90 to 100 in the afternoon, my temperatuere is around 86. when travelling at around 160 in NS e'way in the afternoon, tempurature is around 84 to 86. Only when stop that time, the tempurature will rise up quickly to around 100 degree. Fan switch on at 104 degree.

100+ degrees C is too low for e engine to cut off.. sensor error ?

put ur bike on main stand, let e temp rise (throttle abit)

observe whether e engine will stall.. if it stall, it happen at wat temperature

advantage of having main stand :thumb:

Can any1 cfm e frame for 03/04 is e same as 05 ?

so far, e sliders does a gd job for me.. no complain

Hav known of a VFR whose joint was cracked when e bike fell..

its more of how u fell, where u fell (slope. straight rd)

yah, actually i was worried about installing sliders mainly due to need to drill. sayang sia the fairing.

 

now u throw another concern. like that how man.

 

i thinking, normal drop on side perhaps the sliders will protect the fairing without damaging the joint......? mebbe hard crash then will damage, in which case without sliders will need big time repair anyway......? if this is the case, i'll go ahead with the sliders. but if the sliders will damage the joint in simple drop on side..... :confused: :confused: :giddy: :giddy: o_O :help:

oh yah, from wat i can tell, s'pore carries onli the euro colours, from '03 model right thru to '05 model. Looi's still had one piece all-black '04 model; but the euro '04 black is matte black, not nice. its the US '05 black thats gloss black.

 

actually i was eyeing either the '05 all-black or '05 silver/black (with more conventional 'honda wings' rather than our 'fish-gill' wings) of US colors. skali found out we carry onli Euro colours. the euro '05 silver/red/blue ugly one kind (i showed my gf an online pic of this color scheme and she shrieked "eek! captain america!"). candy blue, well can swallow lah but the black/silver marginally nicer. obvious choice actually ah?

we only have this 3 design rite

correct me if i m wrong

:smile:

'05, yeah.

 

if i'm not wrong, '03 and '04 models US and UK both had the exact same color schemes. think it was only in '05 that somehow they both introduced diff colour schemes between the 2. the UK ones were the uglier ones, and how unfortunate we got those.

 

so i suppose '06 model we just check http://www.honda.co.uk to see wat sort of colours we'll get. but really man, the US ones at http://www.hondamotorcycles.com so much nicer.

 

dammitz i had my heart set on first choice the glossy all-black and second choice silver base with black wings!

regarding the frame issue, i found the following text from April '05 issue of Fast Bikes magazine, about the changes in chassis between the '03/'04 model and the '05 model. the italics are my own.

 

The 6kg weight saving comes almost entirely from the chassis. Changes to the frame spar's internal structure, and strengthening at the joints, allow the use of thinner metal through the middle of the spar where stresses are lower.

 

ok. so the joints are strengthened. but the metal is thinner.

 

 

put slider dont put slider :confused: :giddy:

so how many of you guys did a hard run in

and how many did a soft run in?

for me, i did a normal run-in for my bike, keepin rpm below 7.

how abt the others?

but... ocassionally i'll ram gradually till after rpm8 den change gear.

the loud "cluck cluck" gear changin irritates me. *shake head*

 

how many had oredi installed frame sliders for '05 model?

den again if only install the swingarm slider, does it help?

cos there's ready made entry for it, no drillin needed only need to screw it in.

arh bor heart pain sia... :giddy:

 

so far my mileage's nearin 1300click.

i did my first engine & oil filter change at boonsiew cos first 3attempts are free.

but the warranty card states 2nd free change only when nearin 4000click leh.

friends warn me to change at 800, 1600, 2400 intervals together with the oil filter.

durin run-in period, the 4t viscosity will easily break down. izzit true?

how abt you guys?

which motodiam you change & how much they quoted you? or you people oso followed boonsiew recommendation.
