Hi guys,

A friend of mine is looking at 08 312r, are there any major problems with the model that he needs to be aware of?

Major problems? No. Tendency to run hotter than some would like (primarily when not moving)? Yes.

Try the hub bearings and hub failing, radiator cracking, water pump wear, rad fan blades melting, side stand cracking, cam chain tensioner seizing, exhaust welds cracking, condensation in the headlight, throttle sticking, exhaust slip on cigars coming loose......just a few problems on my 2009 59 plate 312r.........but I love her

Sounds like you've got her all sorted out now Clint.

All kidding aside, yes, the hub thing is one that seems too common, and scary. Haven't heard about the cam chain tensioner seizing thing, or the throttle sticking.

Thanked 1 Time in 1 Post
No problems with mine runs like a top...but I did go to full exhaust, microtec ecu, had the rad strengthened and went to a magnesium swingarm and hub.

That's definitely not going to help lol

I have to say after studious reading that this is a fundamentally flawed statement and totally mis-leading.

You have spelt prestige incorrectly...Now come on boys..get things straight lol
