Warranty Extension Notice for 08-10 1000RR related to abnormal crankshaft noise.

Got this letter yesterday from Honda. Anyone know the difference between the normal engine noise and the noise that causes this problem? I have had a slight noise from that area since it was new.

How about a warranty extension for oil consumption?

How can you tell if you need to take it in?

Yeah, one can only hope. It seems that if they're doing it for this problem, which only affects a small percentage of bikes, they would do it for the engine ring problem, too.

So, if you don't do clutched-up wheelies or drag race, you're unlikely to be affected.

I got my letter on Tuesday. Funny thing about it is that my clutch side cover leaks the tiniest amount of oil after a 100mi ride averaging 4000-5000rpm. I don't think that has anything to do with it.. but I know I'm not supposed to be leaking oil!

So far: Zero Gravity windscreen, carbon fiber hugger, carbon fiber chain guard, ASV clutch/brake levers, Honda Solo Cowl, Corbin seat, Rim Tape, Powdercoated rear sets, passenger pegs, gas cap, triple tree. Tripage LED fender eliminator with integrated turn signals in rear pegs, Tripage LED cruise control module, 6000K HID headlights, white LED marker lights, red LED gauge cluster. More to come!

So I went to the dealership I while i was working in Oklahoma City this week, they confirmed the service bulletin on the crankshaft issue. I inquired as to oil consumption, since my bike started burning at 8500 miles, they said out of all the CBR 1000RR's they have sold, they have not heard of a single oil burning issue. I told them i have 2 friends with 08's, and all 3 of us burn oil. I truly believe Honda is telling their dealers to deny any knowledge.

Ill be trying to find a dealer to look at the crank issue now, since I live in NM and i wont take the bike to the Harley/Honda shop here locally.

Past rides: 85 RZ-350, 88 FZR-400, 94 CBR-F2, 98 TL-1000S, 99 R6(track) 01 R6, 02 CBR 954RR, 04 1000RR, 05 R1, 08 R6, 08 1000RR(current).

No letter for me, but no noise either. There is a bit of a chattering noise when I leave the clutch lever out completely while in neutral, and the noise goes away when I take up the slack. Not worried. Should I worry?
