Angry Q? for all CBR1k owners!!

i'm washin up my bike today since no one else would and i notice the honda sticker on the lower right plastic is a little brown. i take a closer look and the dammed plastic is melted from the exhaust! an area about the size of a cell phone has bubbled from heat and warped my lower plastic.

my question is has anyone else with a 1k seen anything like this or heard of anyone having this happen? my lower is pretty much trashed and i believe it is due to poor design as there is no heat protection on the plastics down there. i'm a little pissed about the whole thing.

You need to sell the bike, cheap, Reallyyyyy cheap.

j/k That's good info for others. Are you going to take it back and make them fix it? You can buy some foil for a heat shield (can't remember the name), but you would think the dealer would be happy to fix it, maybe?

Yard sale I have a CBR1000 and my lower fairing is off as we speak. I just installed my PC. I have no melted spot at all. Mine is a 2005 CBR1000rr. It has 54000 miles.

turns out my 06 which also has around 5400 miles is lacking heat tape on the lowers that is sposed to prevent the melting. i-90 in issaquah is going to replace it and make sure the new lowers have heat tape on them under warranty.

2 or 3 1000rr's showed up today so i looked at the plastics on each one and only the 07 had heat tape on it. repsol u should throw some on there if its not already just to be safe.

I am not sure what you are talking about. Where does the heat tape go on the pipes? I would be pissed if the my lowers melt.

tape should be on the plastics to absorb some of the heat from the pipes.
i was pretty pissed about it till i went into i-90 and they agreed it was a warranty issue. the damned thing warped in toward the pipe so it is practically resting on the exhaust. they should be replaced by next weekend tho so no bigs. i'd get pics if i had a camera.

I understand all of that except the kid stealing. Didn't happen to me yet. He better think long and hard before he steals from anybody.
