  1. General CBR XX Discussion
    I hear a lot of talk of sewing machines - and maybe they are talking about the smooth engine noise when accelerating. But what the hella is this manic whistling rapid cricket noise? The valves opening and shutting? Seems from the top of the engine. Seems a bit intrusive? (97 carb)
  2. Wanted To Buy
    So I did something stupid and ran my bike out of oil. I know.... rookie movie. Now I'm stuck with a bike I never want to give up that needs to be fixed.

    Hi all, new bird owner here. Got my first bird just a week ago and it came along with a rare clunk from somewhere in the engine or clutch. It's not the constant knocking sound that is associated with cold clutch, but something more along the lines of louder clunk/thud. We had the bike idling...

    Hi everyone, Just picked up a '97 Blackbird. Lovely condition and rides great, except for one problem. When accelerating, it pulls strongly up to around 7k RPM, cuts out briefly, then continues pulling strongly. It's less noticeable when accelerating hard as it powers right past it, but you...

    I bought my bird a few weeks ago. Haven't had the chance to ride it yet. I've spent the whole time trying to fix it. I've cleaned the carbs, drained the tank, added new gas (with seafoam), and changed the spark plugs. New gas and spark plugs have solved the backfire issue but now it won't run. I...
