Question about 2004 Honda CBR 600 RR

1 Answer

Max revs 14000 rpm.

Hi i own a cbr 600rr 04, it doesn't redline, the battery died so i jumped started it and when i flored it it didn't go past 14000 cousin had the same problem, (same bike) they changed the fuel pump and the bike was ok but they also changed the battery. i don't think it was the fuel pump, i'm thinking it's the mapping of the ecu. thanks in advance.

    the rev limiter doesn't come on, it's like i'm letting go of the throttle a bit. if i let of the throttle it goes up to 14500 rpm. the red line limit is about 15200 rpm, that's where it should be.

    What is the redline supposed to be on this engine? 16k max? You are getting close, so close it could be any physical problem like restrictions in the fuel or air system, but it could also be electrical (weak battery or alternator) or an ECU problem too. So many possibilities. I would start by evaluating how many miles are on the bike and doing any scheduled maintenance, checking your air, fuel, and electrical system components closely.

    You do know there is a rev limiter on modern sportbike engines, when you hit it the engine sounds like it's cutting out for a moment? I wonder if maybe the rev limiter is coming on too soon.

Check the injectors for short circuits. It might have been the injectors that ran the battery down to begin with.
