    Hey all, Hope you're all keeping the rubber side down :thumb: I confess, I've really neglected my bird for a good while and after replacing the thermostat (really high temps), I just had to tackle a problem which has returned. I had really high temps a few weeks ago and noticed how awful the...
  2. A little too heated for my taste...

    Engine / Airbox / Exhaust / Fuel Delivery
    Any thoughts on what you guys would view as normal running temperature? Being a new Blackbird rider, i'm trying to gauge whether my new bike is uncomfortably toasty, or whether it's just the new norm' for me to adjust to... I'm aware that the consensus is that they generally get a bit hot...

    General CBR XX Discussion
    Firstly sorry to the mods if this is the wrong spot. i googled and didn't find a suitable answer. My question is has anyone ever replaced their cooling fan successfully without pulling the hoses off the radiator.

    Engine / Airbox / Exhaust / Fuel Delivery
    My bike sat for the last 4 months or so, due to being dropped. It's finally back together so I took it for a ride, only to find that the fan isn't coming on. It got hot to the point of almost overheating. I shut it off and let it cool down. While cooling down, I noticed the fuse was blown...
