I bought an 08 CBR1000rr

I just bought a nice inexpensive 08 CBR1000rr, to ride some. I've been away from bikes for 10 years. The last street bikes I owned were an 04 ZX10R and an 05 GSXR1000.
I've owned 25+ bikes. Ive ringed 2 strokes but never had any real mechanical issues. Now I read that my 08 1000RR will probably blow up because of the crank, so I'm very excited.

How many miles on it?
Mine has almost 54.000 miles on it, without an issue. The units that had problems usually had the issue manifest itself with low milleage.
Chances are, being an 08, if the crank didn't blew up by now, it won't blow up.

Hey buddy,

Thanks for the reply. I had to post in this area to post elsewhere, so my words were really just arbitrary.

It has 12,000 miles and two owners before. I know the last guy, who rode it a total of 300 miles, and he bought it from a friend. It was 100% stock with tires from 2011. No wear on the edge of the tires, but man are they slick! I think it's been ridden pretty easy, which may not be good in this case! LOL.


I really can't tell if it has a whine or not. I don't think it has anymore noise than my 2004 ZX10R had. I wouldn't have even noticed if I hadn't read about it. Also, I added a Scorpion half pipe and the sound seems more noticeable now, so maybe I'm hearing the pipe. I listened to my before (stock pipe) video and I don't hear much whine or whirl sound. I guess I need more information on diagnosis. Any information is appreciated.


It was on it's side at one point, because it has a scuff on the stator cover, and a cracked front and side fairing. Still, it's super clean. I ordered 2 news fairing sets, tires and a stator cover. I took the rear tire off last night and put the pipe on last week. I plan to make it perfect. I paid $3,700 for the bike so I feel pretty good about it.

I'm super excited to have a bike again.

From all I've read and heard from the crank issue, with 12.000 miles, riden easy or hard, if it had a problem, it should have manifested itself already.
Just ride it and don't think about it.

From what I understand, the 08s just have an oil burning issue, but I haven't read about the crank blowing up.

Welcome!!!

Yes, more of an oil burning issue than crank. My engine ran like a dream for years, and only went out because #1 connecting rod cap failed, which is very rare. Check the oil level regularly for a few months, and enjoy her!

80k going strong

My 08 has over 80k miles. Street and track. Two fairly spectacular wipe outs. Still badass as ever. I decided to let a pro look it over (Gabe at Custom Performance in Fredricksburg, VA) and all he's found so far is a stretched oil pump chain, burnt spark plugs, and a work cam chain tensioner. I told him to also replace the clutch plates while he was in there doing the oil pump chain. All in all, fantastic health for a bike this old that has such a bad reputation. I plan on flogging it another 80k.

I am the owner of the blade 08 with 16 500 miles. And what are the symptoms if there are problems with oil pump chain?
