Cullers, new to the site, just bought a 2000 929 last week. The previous maintenance is questionable, though the guy said he kept it in good shape.

He said he's noticed in the last couple days that the power is dropping significantly. I ride a 600 and really was expecting ass-loads more power when I hoped on it. It really only felt like it pulled slightly harder. I couldn't get even the slightest rise out of the front end on my short test ride. I wasn't impressed.

He called the Honda shop in Winchester and told them the problem. They said since he had an after-market pipe that he'd need a Power Commander. They said a tune up might help too. I noticed that the oil needed to be changed and that he may need new spark plugs.

Do you all have any other ideas where the power loss could be coming from?

Mods: please move this to Test & Tune.

My ex-roommate's (former racer) 929 pulled much, much harder than a 600 even with stock exhaust. The 929 is damn near bulletproof.

How many miles on the bike?

Check:
- chain status (a dry, worn out chain saps power)
- air filter
- spark plugs (might as well change them after you've got the 929 tank off - spend the extra $$ on good plugs)

A slip-on exhaust won't require a PCII, but a full exhaust system would.

Not that I noticed. He said the engine does sound louder though. He can hear it over the D&D exhaust.

I do remember the chain looking discolored. I don't remember checking the sag on it though. I'll try to remember to look at the teeth of the sprocket too.

Join the CBR 900 owners list.

http://lists.anaxified.com/listinfo....-anaxified.com

Most people on that list have forgotten more about the CBR than I ever knew...one of the members logged over 200k miles on his 900RR...he was in magazines and stuff.

cool list. lots of info.
