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.

Hey m8,,,just looked at your problem,,to start with i need to uliminate a few things first,,is the bike restricted do u no,, to 33bhp,,that sounds the problem,, the restrictors could be in the carbs,to check this take the top of the carb off pull out the spring, and needle,, on the diaphram check theres no pin holes,by holdin it up to the light,,then on the needle u may see a bit of a plastic spacer or down the inside of the carb,if so then take that out or off,,and repeat this to all 4 carbs,,if nothing is visable,,then check the spark plug caps,and ht wires on the coil,, to be sure change all the plugs if they are not the plugs that should be in the bike,,see spec in a manual,4 the right heated spark plug,, and change the plug caps,try this first m8,, if still not havin any of it, ,shout andil anserw m8,, cheers

How do I go about fixing a reving issue on my bike? It doesnt like to rev past about 10,000 rpms. I was thinking maybe the carbs need to be rejetted. The bike will rev to redline in neutral.

Hi, Ani and the usual suspects are:
1. Severely drained or faulty battery.
2. Faulty regulator/rectifier or high output coil.
3. Faulty power valve, solenoid or installation.
4. Clogged air filter or exhaust.
5. Cracked or incorrect float level.
6. Float needle is not seating.
7. Faulty reed valve.

Hi, Wes and the usual suspects are:
1. Ignition Switch not in the "ON" position.
2. Engine Run Switch in the "OFF" position.
3. Discharged battery, check battery terminals for damage or corrosion, check the battery cables at "BOTH" ends for loose, corroded, or broken connectors, "INSIDE" and outside the cable harness, perform connector wiggle test and check cables with an ohmmeter if necessary.
4. Bank angle sensor tripped and ignition/light key switch not cycled to the "OFF" position and then back to the "ON" position.
5. Faulty starter button/switch.
6. Faulty jiffy stand or clutch pull in switch/sensor.
7. Security alarm needs a reset.
8. Starter control circuit, relay, or solenoid faulty.
9. Electric starter shaft pinion gear is not engaging or over-running starter clutch slipping.

I have a few questions for you. 1. Have you owned the bike since it was new? 2. Have you been able to rev beyond 3500 rpm prior?

Idle control

If you feel it is a good deal and account the cost to repair the broken idle then go for it.
Chcek with your dealer first how much it would cost then do the deal.

I have a cb400n super dream which will not rev above 6500rpm. i have changed the plugs and oil and striped and cleaned the carbs, but the problem is still there.

Is that not the REDLINE? you cannot go beyond the redline please! Check your throttle cable connection for obstruction, and make sure the butterfly valves open to the max. Might be that the manufacturer installed some rpm limiter switch.
