Question about Honda Motorcycles
horsepower is 178. The US spec version of the 2008 1000RR has a limitation above 10,200 rpm that reduces rear wheel horsepower to approximately 155. The UK version of the motorcycle makes about 10 more horsepower with a normal curve above 10,200 rpm as opposed to the US version which is essentially flat from 10,200 rpm to 13,000 rpm.

check your key it has a chip in side it and it may be faulty try your spear and i know it sounds silly but just make sure your kill switch is set to run check the hiss fuse under the seat also swap your fuel pump relay with the fan one the fuel pump relay has brown wires going to it and the fan has black and blue if you have an alarm on it it will be worth checking that make sure that the fuel pump is pluged in under the tank take a look at the hiss light does it go out wen the bike is switched on if it stays on you have a HISS problem any problems let me know and i will do my best to help

The back corners of the riders seat are soft and can be bent up to expose the screws that hold it to the frame.

It comes on every time the oil pressure falls below a preset level. If you are running out of oil (because the level is low), then 1) shame on you for not checking the oil level frequently! It's not like you have to lift the hood, or anything hard like that, and 2) don't drive it at all until you get some oil in there!
If you have plenty of oil, then you could have a stuck oil pressure relief valve, a blocked oil pickup, a worn out oil pump, an unbelievably clogged oil filter, or an internal oil leak (from a crack, or something coming loose).
In a water cooled car, the water only does 60% of the cooling. Another 20% is by aire passing over the engine surface, and the rest is carried to the oil sump to be cooled by air passing over the pan. Motorcycles have highly finned oil sumps for a reason: They shed a lot of heat through the oil. If you are low on oil, you will be low on cooling, too.
If you fill up with oil, but you still overheat, you probably have an excessively lean fuel mixture. If that is the case, and you let that continue, this bike won't last very long.
I just checked and found that this is a water cooled engine. So yes, you probably need coolant -- check into that right away. If the water pump gets dry even for a split second, the seals (lacking the lubrication that the water provides) will be destroyed -- it happens instantly.
