Question about 2002 Honda CBR 954 RR Fireblade
Yes, get a couple of other opinions. The ticking is probably just the valve lash needing to be reset and or the cam chain tensioner adjusted. These are a minor procedures once the fairings are removed. My question is how in the heck can the dealer say the cams don't "look" that good. Did they pull the fairings off then remove the cylinder head cover and actually "look" at the cams? And what did they see when "looking"? Were micrometers used to measure wear? Were the cams heat blued from friction from the cam caps? They then put it all back together for free and gave you the cost to repair... Yeah, right. New cams are $210 each x 2 cams = $420 + $30 for gaskets. If the bike truly needs cams and valve job, a cost of $2000 would be fair. The bike has 4 cylinders and that means more parts and labor to do repairs. That's why I never recommend more than two cylinders. Old school, but I also prefer air cooled engines. Fewer parts and less cost to repair.
