Burnt smell/Smoking =( - November 20, 2009, 09:44 PM

Hey guys, so I was omw to work today and I saw smoke coming out of the front of my bike going over my headlights smelt a burning smell like burnt dust is the only way to explain it. So Im about to turn around and take her home then it stops Id say this lasted 2-3min.

So after this I ride to work, I smell it periodically when I stop but no smoke.

(I did ride in the rain yesterday and obviously smoke/steam was coming from the radiator area I just assumed this was steam from the rain hitting the hot headers/radiator. Also I smelled the same smell but thought it was the rain hitting w/e)

Also every now and then when I start her up it smells a little like burnt dust... I always shrugged it off...


Also I hear this rattling at 4-5k rpms, any ideas?

I took it to fairfax cycles they didnt hear it Im taking it back I realized it only happens under load and ONLY between 4-5krpms

If your sitting on the bike it sounds like its on the closest fairing about 3/4 the way up.

03 CBR600RR with 11.8k miles


So I gave her a over due bath, and lubed my chain I looked in the front of my bike for any signs of leakage their are some black spots guessing oil maybe? Grease? On my front fairing not sure if its from the road or the bike.

Thanks everyone for the help!!!

Shes my DD until 4runner is fixed hopefully soon dont want to hurt my baby =P Ive grown attached to her!!

kinda like a high pitch rattling, yes only between 4-5k rpms all the time between 4-5

It sounds like a screw lose or something but it only happens between 4-5

The burning is probably leaf debris getting thrown up into the exhaust header by the front wheel. The rattle may be a cam chain problem. I don't know what that engine looks like on the inside but maybe there are cam chain sliders, and one is crapping out. I wouldn't think though with less than 12K miles. Happened on my old zx7r though at around 16K miles.

It's dangerous to take your bike to a shop without knowing what's wrong with it. They can sort of have their way with you in this scenario. What bothers me about this is that you don't hear it at idle. I would think an internal problem should be audible at idel or just cracked open throttle. Does the rattle go away at higher rpms? If so, it suggests that you have resonance at a particular rpm range and that something outside of the engine--body panel, engine mount, whatever--is vibrating. Or could be somewhere along the exhaust system.

^ understood I hear good things about fairfax I have been their twice and he seems truthful to me but I understand what your saying I just hope for the best.


yes its only at 4-5k rpms and it does go away at higher and lower rpms I was hoping it was something outside the motor but man I dont see anything and its kinda odd it only does it at 4-5k rpms

I dont know anywhere else to take it or have anyone to look at it so ugh yeah

Shoot boomboom929 a PM and see how busy he is these days. I have a feeling it's not serious since it only happens in a narrow rpm range.

So when you say it only happens under load, you are sitting on it, then rev it to 4-5k, or are you riding (aka in gear) when you rev it to 4-5k and you hear it? Just trying to paint a better picture, also take a quick picture of those "oil" spots you saw, that might help

as for the burning smell, I agree with OrangeShirtDude, i've ridden in the rain a few times, you get the usual steam when you park it after riding, but especially now in the fall, more shit on the road, therefore its just leaves, junk, twigs that are lingering around your exhaust headers and such that then get burnt off.

Ok guys update didnt want to make a new thread... Also posted this on 600RR see if they can help me out!!

Ok so its still happening I was advised to take off the fairings (make sure its not them) I tightened up all screws etc

Now it wont start im sure its because of the cables I disconnected so I need to know what to hook back up.

Also I was told this is a base to a frame slider anyone know what kind or how can I find it out?

Bought a whole new set of fairings OEM for 300 =P

Picking up tuesday I hope!!

anyway here are all kinds of pics!

Also I noticed my ram air tubes where zip tied :wtf

Also they are just pushed into my air box is it supposed to be that way?

2003 600RR 12k miles

why did you buy new fairings? you should have just taken them off and ridden the bike without them to see if that's what caused the rattling.
