Question about 1987 Honda CBR 1000 F
Just bought the bike yesterday goes great just theres a rattling noise in it when its cold and when its warmed up.is it a problem or can i just ignore it.thanks
Chance is something is loose and as the engine warms up it takes up the slack due to the metals expanding, try to track the location of the noise. this is an older bike and internal components may be worn out, and until oil gets there and engine warms up this would be normal. try using oil for high milage engines and some slick 50 treatment if you dont find anything loose. (like engine mounts, pipe mounts etc)

It sounds like you have a bad timing chain tensioner. this is a problem that they almost all have and was a factory recall but if you know how to install one it isn't too hard of a job and the part is only around $140.00. try not to drive it too much as you can do some serious damage to the motor and the bike if it lets go ! GOOD LUCK AND SAFE RIDING ! MICHAEL...
