I've had my bike for a few weeks now and I've noticed a bunch of stuff that worries me. I'm gona bring it into the dealer since its under a 30day warranty but I wanted to hear your thoughts on this stuff.
As some background, i have limited mechanical knowledge, extensive electrical knowledge. I understand basic mechanical stuff but I am very eager to learn.
My bike is a 1988 CBR400RR
heres my short list.
-Lights and dash indicator brightness varies when im on the road. goes from pretty dim to really bright. I know that the brightness will dim when the rpm's drop, but I mean when im on the freeway, constant speed. I was thinking loose connection. but could this also be an alternator problem?
-my clutch doesnt do anything. im pretty sure the plunger has detached from the cable. can I fix this myself?
-bike idles around 800-1100 rpm. its stalled once or twice at a read light after its plenty warm. im pretty sure this is just an idle adjustment but not sure.
-my throttle doesnt spring back to zero very quickly. feels kind of sticky. once or twice while in the garage its stuck at like half open for a few seconds. I did drop the bike once (at stop) on the right side. did I screw something up here?
anyway I know this is all allot, but id appreciate any info. like I said, am eager to learn and I dont want to be one of those guys who wheels the bike to the shop every time it make a weird noise.
