Honda cbr 125 r engine noises

An odd problem to describe really, i originaly described it as losing power in 4th and 5th gear and had a reasonable solution posted back but the problem seems to be getting worse. the best way i can think of describing the problem is explaining the noise. instead of going vrmmmmmmmmmmm continuously, it goes vm vm vm vm vm vm vm vm
and up hill i can feel it **** as it is pulling up the hill it dosent splutter but it sounds more like vibrato if it was holding a note whilst singing

Try doing a compression test and see where that leads.

Vapor lock only when hot outside.

I understand what you are describing, but keep in mind it is almost impossible to have an actual vapor lock on a fuel injected vehicle.
Vapor lock is when the gasoline in the fuel line turns to vapor before it gets to the engine.
I am assuming your Ford is newer than 1982 and has fuel injectors.
In your case it could be a vac leak or something making the fuel mixture too lean. A problem with the EGR valve or other component could cause the issue.
Is the check engine light on ?

2012 honda cbr 600 no power beyond 5th gear

You may try following solutions:

1. Clean your Carborator, Spark Plugs
2. Check tension of the transmition chain/belt
3. Clean your bike's exhaust pipe
4. Check your bike's fuel injection system and air filters.

If the above does not help you, Check the following:

Get your Gear box checked. If the 5th gear is worn out due to some reason, this can happen. Replacing that gear wheel will help to restore it's original speed.

Hope these tips will help you.

I can select first gear and ride away no problem, when I select any other gear there is no drive to the rear wheel at all, there is some slight odd noise coming from the clutch side but it seems to be...

Those are the normal symptoms of a worn clutch. It will pull quite well in lower gears but slips in the higher gears. I doubt if releasing the clutch adjustment is going to give you a bit of grace, you will soon have to replace the clutch, especially considering the noise.

My honda cbr looses power in 5th and 6th gear

Hi there.
When in the upper gears, reduced power output from the engine becomes more noticeable in 5th and 6th gear due to the more direct drive created by the higher ratios. First thing I would do is put some additive in the fuel to clean the fuel system and decarbon the head and combustion chambers. I use a Nulon product, not sure what you can get in your part of the world. Techron is another good well known product that works. In fact, if you bike is affected by buildups any brand name cleaner additive will help with the problem.
Also check that the drive chain is well lubed, a dry chain can rob up to 2 kw of power. Check wheel hubs for excessive heat/bearing problems. Happy to talk to you more about it. Cheers

2008 HONDA cbr 125 Popping out of 5th Gear

Only three things would cause the problem. 1) a slightly beny shift fork, 2) a shift index wheel loose, 3) the foot shift lever needs to be adjusted.

The most likely source is the shift lever needing to be lower. Once you are in 5th gear you move your foot to the top iof the pedal in preparation for a downshift. At high speed your entire body is leaning forward FOOT INCLUDED. Chances are that enough pressure is on the pedal to move the slider gear out of position and thus out of 5th gear.

I hope I am right in the solution. Best wishes.
