2008 cbr1000rr whine

before it sounded this bad, my motor made a little whine at idle nothing bad or not normal but I went riding the other day and I noticed a lot more whine and something was definitely not okay. the whining got way louder and one of my mechanic friends says it sounds like a bearing. I checked my dipstick and there was not a drop of oil on it. The sound is coming from the bottom end more on the clutch side.

Here is the video of how it sounds
Did you fill the oil up?
Yeah honestly I think it was a coincidence that I checked the oil level when I heard the whine because I鈥檓 starting to think it鈥檚 the crankshaft whine recall. Having the exact same symptoms and I did start doing a lot of clutch ups before it started happening which makes the whine start
Wheelies + low oil = spun bearing. Not always, but often enough...
my bike is showing no symptoms of a spun bearing. No loss of power, engine lights, just the whine.
lets hope thats all that it is. putting the bike together with some new parts and will update the forum.

So why not take it to your dealer and let them do the recall before you cause them to void the warranty for yet more reasons?
Because the warranty is long past the valid time to have it done for free and actually be under warranty.
