Hey guys I have a cbr 500 r 2015. When it'd colder it seems to run fine. But when it get warm and I'm in 5-7 rpm it's surging really bad. I have tried cleaning the filter but not alone off deference. Any thought????

Yep not normal. I am not a mechanic but it needs checking out by one. I imagine Honda would be familiar with this problem on this model .

Yea I kinda want to try and get it sorted my self with some help. It just doesn't make sense it runs fine than will start surging and won't go past 100 -140

Checked the forums and there was 4 x things it could be. It worked out for most guys that the chain and sprockets needed replacing. Under $350 job.

I've been riding for 35 years, have had some serious sports bikes, I'm thinking of dialling it back a bit, would I be happy with a cbr500r or would it get boring.

If you want excitement stay with what you have, if you want a bike with exceptional fuel consumption, very little servicing maintenance required and will beat every cars still at the light as you creep to the head of the line, then cbr500r might be for you.
I think you still need to work out what you are really looking for in a bike at this season in your life.cheers

Thanks for that, my favourite bike got taken out while riding years ago, if that hadn't happened I'd probably still be riding it, nothing has come close since. O well

I am just looking at getting insurance for my 2016 CBR500RA and when finding my bike on most insurance sites it will have the option of the bike as MY15 or MY16 and I am just wondering how I find out which one my bike is? Even though mine is the 2016 model I have read they may still have a "Model Year" that is different.

I have a 2015 Honda CBR500R I am thinking of taking my slip on exhaust off (just for sound,THE LOUDER YOU ARE THE SAFER) and putting on a K&N air filter. Will me doing that burn my exhaust valves?

Yazz

No it will not affect it at all.

Hi mate, no it wont affect the valves, only might frustrate your neighbors. I would recommend replacing the stock exhaust with a slip on, they are relatively cheap off ebay and will make the bike sound a lot better (much better then without any muffler). Cheers
