Clutching up wheelies are very bad for most CBR's the 600RR is especially bad. they have reported clutches going out as fast as two weeks!

clutch wheelie at your own risk!!!!













lol jk. You'll most likely wreck the bike before you burn the clutch Wheeling. however burnouts you can fry it in just one try

! Really that hard on the Honda clutch huh? Well guess when it goes it will be a good time to upgrade to maybe a slipper clutch.

No worries...

I'm at 11,300 miles, factory clutch...


...I started clutchin them up on the way home from the dealer (9 miles on the bike). Still rockin.

I drag race it as well, so my clutch gets used more than a catchers mitt.

I'm usually clutchin it in 3rd on the freeway, sometimes 4th, if its wide open enough. Occasionally I'll go down backroads and clutch 2nd on a sitdown...



....so far so good. I did hear bad things about the 600RR, but so far my 1000RR has held up flawlessly.

your clutch wear relies on you, if you do burnouts like del240z you wont have a clutch, but most clutch ups do not wear the clutches down fast, but your chain will wear.

lol... i did that all the time on my zx7. its a heavy bike to start with and cold tires definitely induced some spin. made for a hard learning curve...
