no. the engine isnt pinging or knocking. it seems to be some few isolated cases of the engine missing at idle... i watched the videos and it doesn't look like anything. just people who don't know what pinging or knocking mean.

everyone is all up in a panic cause of the pinging.. please guys.. that is a normal sound.. My 02 R1 had the same sound. If you listen to it.. it sounds like the rockers and lifters...NOT A BIG DEAL..

There are a hanful of people reporting a real pinging from their bikes. I am having an actual engine missing.

Pinging is a very different sound from the sound of lifters, joeroke. Those that say they have it are probably not mistaking the sound for valve noise. Mine was mistaken for pinging, mainly because of the voilent nature of the engine missing.

It comes down to this:
EVERY single bike/car/train/plane on the planet will have a few isolated cases of problems. Since maybe a handful of people with CBRs have an issue doesn't mean all of them do - check the polls on this site if you don't believe me.

The ZX is having tranny problems, the R1 is having bottem end problems. The CBR hasn't had any failures of any kind that anyone knows about. That's pretty good if you ask me.

Yea I had my mechanic look at my bike on Saturday. After he came back from a ride on it, he said everything sounds normal and there is nothing to worry about. My last bike was an F2 also. Make the jump. You'll love it.
