Been reading up & it seems that 2010's already have updated stronger crankshafts but not the primary drivegear. 2011 models received both the updated crankshaft & drivegear.

So what would you guys suggest should i have a go at changing the drivegear with the updated one from 2011?

Any idea where i can get it? Appreciate the help.

Ok, well that sucks dude!! I'm pretty sure the 2010 was included in the warranty update for the primary gear drive. It's a pretty big job that requires pulling the motor out, cracking the case open and replacing the crank bearings, etc... The dealer took about a month or so, to do the repair from start to finish.

The primary gear drive is at the end of the crankshaft, since you already have the upgraded crank I wonder if it can be done without doing everything I described?

If so I wonder if then you can then just purchase the parts through a Honda dealer?

Yeah that's what i'm hoping, that i can just get away with replacing the clutch components & the primary gear drive. I tried looking up OEM parts but i haven't found a source of the primary gear drive yet.

Just need to confirm whether the primary gear drive is part of the issue or not. As someone pointed out earlier it's always engaged regardless of the clutch. And in my case the sound goes away if i pull in the clutch lever. So maybe it's just a clutch issue?

Re: 2010 fireblade whining noise on engine braking

I have the same year model. I was doing clutch up wheelies last year with around 7k miles on the bike. The noise started then, and still does it. I'm at 16k miles now. My Honda dealer doesn't even acknowledge that there is an issue with the bikes, and claims that they cannot hear the noise from my bike. I think I'm just going to ignore it and trade up in a couple years. :thumbup:

it is hard to tell from the pictures if the plates are ok, you will need to take the plates out and have a close look at them. You'll need to take the clutch apart, fortunately taking the contents of the clutch basket out isn't that bad. Get the manual, follow the instructions, and where it says "do not use an impact to unstake the clutch nut", you'll likely need to use an impact to unstake the clutch nut. I was unable to get it off any other way. Fortunately that is really the only thing that holds it all together. The outer plate is marked different than the other plates. If it is just a broken/cracked plate, its not too expensive to replace, around $150 IIRC or so. The fact your getting clutch slip is a pretty good sign its the plates or springs.

oh, and you will need a new clutch nut if you take it off, you cannot reuse it

Don't be a road crayon, pavement does not care how cool you think you look in a t-shirt and shorts.
