You should be able to confidently stop the bike from the speed you ride at. For example...if you cruise at 40 you should be able to safely, and quickly stop the bike from 40. If you cruise at 140 you should know how to stop your bike from 140 mph.
Remember this...absolutely any jackass from the block can hop on a motorcycle and get it going 120 mph in a straight line...but not many can stop a motorcycle from 120 mph and corner properly.

I have been. Let me tell ya, the way you ride before a crash and the way you ride after one are almost like you are two completely diferetn people...
only thing that could have prevented the crash was experience. I tried to swerve and miss her but i wasnt fast enough and didnt think she was going to stop, so i put the brakes on too early and low sided the bike quite nicely. I gotta say i blacked out for a few seconds, i just remember thinking "o ****" and then laying on the ground wondering what just happened.
How ironic that i was in the parking lot in the first place practicing my braking and swerving. Grrrrrrrrrr.

All of the fairings on the left side will need replaced probobly, scratched the left mirror, left foot peg, left passenger foot peg, shattered the rear left fairing, and the engine cover on the left. also hit my head hard so i'll be getting a new helmet, woo hoo. And gloves got scratched up bad so i'll try to get compensation for those. I rode the bike home though, no fluids are leaking and the engine seemed intact, as well as the transmition.
The insurance lady said she was pretty obvious it is grandmas fault though, so i should be getting a hefty check to pay for the repairs. a guy should be comming soon to appraise the damage. I'd say its at least in the 1500 2000 range.

Glad you got her straight man...but sucks to hear you dropped it. Now just imagine if that was a brand new bike. It would suck more. Drops are part of the game. Hopefully you learned something from the experience.
How much damage did you do?

Yah you're not the only guy in here to say something about a little nipple action. Its now respectfully modified for you guys.
My fuel line was clogged and it was starving my engine. good news huh? bike works fine now!
Cept yesterday grandma pulls out in front of me in a parking lot and i put my bike down. it was nice to ride it again for a day at least. Parking lots have to be the most dangerous place to ride a bike. I swear to god in ohio a parking lot possess' the same rules as a demolition derby.
At least she was insured.

You guys are an awesome community, I've been more than shocked at how cool everbody is around here. Most of my other hobbie's forums are just a bunch of jerk off's trolling for fights so they can boost thier cyber ego.
Oh and about that cbr600f1 manual, once again does anybody know if it is basically the same schematics for an fs?

I would start with checking the plugs and then move to the carbs...Because it is starting, but you need to "choke it" when running...sounds like plugs or carbs...on a bike that old, you need to get the proper shop manual and take the carbs completely apart and rebuild them and clean the intakes...
And the CCT (cam chain tensioner) does exactly that...it keeps tension on the cam chain so you don't slip a tooth or spin on a cam gear when riding...especially at higher RPM's. It is the lifter that goes out and causes the rattle that you hear. And unless you think bent valves or damaged pistons are minor repairs...it needs to be repaired ASAP...

|NONE_too_SOFT||I remember when I was replacing plugs on my honda civic's v4 that i started it up with 3 and the way the motor reacted was much like it reacted on my bike. I'm really hoping its just something as easy to fix as that. I wish i wouldnt have taken my bike to the dealer so quickly now, but i still dont have my damn owners manual and the one on these forums is for a cbr600f1 ... are they basically the same model?|

|King Bob||a dead plug would also cause the motor to vibrate like crazy I think. you'd notice the sudden drop in power too.|
|11-12-2006 04:09 PM|
|jeeps84||A dead plug could cause similar problems. You should be able to easily tell by the color and or wetness if you have a bad plug.|
|11-12-2006 12:09 PM|
|NONE_too_SOFT||From talking with people that are a little more well versed in motorcycleology than I, they mentioned the stalling could be due to bad spark plugs... if they plugs in that bike are the orriginals and they've been in there for 8 years I suppose that may be true. Does anybody have anything to say about spark plugs or even the timing of the engine? (remember i said when i have the clutch pulled in first the bike will slowly idle to a stall)|
|11-12-2006 08:30 AM|
|King Bob||far as I know, from my reading, the stock CCT just rattles, doesnt cause any other problems though.|
|11-11-2006 11:43 PM|
Good call Tater... that is very true!
|11-11-2006 09:38 PM|
|TATER||I know that CBRs can have problems with the cam chain tensioners... that could make a metalic rattle but I dont know about a clank.. and I dont know if that could lead to any other issues with the bike..|

I'm going to shoot the owner of the store an e-mail and tell him whats goin on. I cant see ever being a patron of this place again if this is how they are going to conduct business.
i dont have any decent pics and the bike is no longer at my house so theres not much i can do right now to help you guys any more, wish i should have gotten these post last night
