Question about 1997 Honda CBR 600 F(3)V

1 Answer

97 honda cbr 600f3 shifting, gears, etc.

Is all the transmissions on the 97 cbr f3 6 speed? I just bought one and it seems to have only five gears. I try to go one more but Im toped out and it wont shift up anymore. It drives great and zips down the highway at 5,500 rpms doing about 85 mph. in 5th. gear. Is that normal?
The clutch works fine but does seem soft and when I go from neutral to 1st gear it clicks into gear kinda hard(not smooth) it isnt hard to put it into gear it just seems like it should be a smooth transition. Is that normal? Just wondering if there is a problem or it is just a five speed trans.

It should be 1 down and 5 up. About the 5500rpm at 85... That sounds about right with stock gearing. Let me know if i can help further. Good luck and happy holidays. Jay

How many rpms should i go on my honda cbr 600


hi,i dont know a lot about this particular bike,but,as with any high revving sports bike you will need to keep the revs up before changing gear,an 883 sportster has a lot more torque than your bike and you can "short shift "them and let the torque do the work,however on a cbr i think you will need more rpm before you shift as they dont have the torque of your old harley,a friend of mine has an r6 yamaha,that thing revs out to nearly 17000 rpm he doesnt change untill about 9 or 10000 rpm,from memory your bike should be capable of nearly 60mph in first gear..hope this helps...cheers

Check the vacuum pipe from the carbs to the fuel tap, if its gat a pin hole in as you demand more fuel the vacuum loss cuts downthe fuel flow and the bike will stop!
