Question about 2002 Honda VTR 1000 F Firestorm

Honda Firestorm HISS security system

Just acquired the bike, and fitted an Optimate battery charger connection lead which effectively meant disconnecting the battery. The security system "chirruped" as I re-connected but now doesn't work - won't set when I want it to be on. Any ideas - or the solution, even better! Thank you very much

You should have 2 keys
dissconnect your battery for 10 min.
do not have the key in the ign.
reconnect your battery
put your first key and turn on for 2 min and turn off
now install your second key and start.
if this doesnt work you will need to contact a honda dealer
good luck

How do i charge the battery on a 1992 honda shadow vlx 600c

First check the battery voltage using a multi-meter set to DC and volt range if reading is below 12V battery has probably one dead cell get a new one, if between 12v and 13V battery should be OK to charge. Remove battery undo negative lead first then positive. Please do not use a car charger or any other charging device that has an output greater that 1 Amp you will fry the battery. Charge the battery for as long as possible. Recheck volts across the battery if above 13V refit battery connect positive lead first then negative.
Start your engine, when warmed up check the voltage across the battery terminals it should be well above 13 volts. Increase the revs and watch the meter the voltage should increase to about 14.5 volts. This shows the battery is being charged. Please remember batteries on bikes only last a few years and short rides do not put enough charge in your battery. Buying and using a motorcycle Smart charger does help. I use a CTEK XS 0.8 12V Motorbike Battery Smart Charger & Conditioner. You get a small wiring harness that fits to the battery with a rubber connector that connects to the chargers plug. This unit will help to keep the charge in the battery topped up.

When I put the bike in reverse, it starts to move, then stops. it will not do any thing else until I put the bike in neutral

Your reverse is battery powered I would suggest the battery is shot.

You could try charging it and see it that helps but if the battery is nearing or over 2 years old I would get a new one. Remember to disconnect negative lead first to remove battery and connect positive lead first to refit. Also keep in mind do not use a car charger on a bike battery and never use a charger with more than 1 amp output. Bike batteries survive best on low current chargers. Final point never jump start your battery from another vehicle or other source. Good luck

Jump start dead battery

A car, van or truck have batteries that are way too powerful to connect to your bike. The outcome if you do decide to do this are blown sensors, rectifier, regulator, possibly alternator, CDI unit etc. etc. If you remove the battery from the bike remove negative lead first then positive. When you charge the battery do not use a car charger it will fry it. Use only a dedicated motorcycle battery charger with an output of 1 Amp or under. When you refit the battery connect the positive lead first then the negative.

I have a 929 2001 cbr it was riding and starting fine the night before. But then i tried to start it in the morning and all i heard was a clicking noise from under the seat. The high beam button was on...

Sounds like the battery has gone flat. Charge it with a proper battery charger and not a battery conditioner like Optimate. That should sort it. If not, it's new battery time.

Could the R regulator cause my firestorm to keep cutting out ?

Regulator will stop the bike starting often and will cause the dash to go blank when you hit starter button. If you do manage to start the bike by bump starting it and run it eg; to get home after this happens you may cook the battery or do damage to the stator. You need to check these three things as there all linked and effect each others efficiency. Excess charge on electrical system is converted to Heat by regulator rectifier unit so in effect the battery cannot be overcharged.

you are going to need to find the security box for the bike and try a few things first disconnect the negitive on the battery and wait for 15-30 min longer the better. then hook neg back up and try. if that does not work you are going to need to pull the security box off the bike. if it is in with the ecu of the bike you are going to have to go and have it reprogramed at the dealer.
