Question about 1989 Honda CBR 600 F(1)K

1 Answer

Cbr 600 getting hot!

I have a cbr600f, and i''m having a wire melting problem. Needless to say, the bike will not be running untill i can figure out the problem. Can anyone HELP! I think it''s the regulator/rectifier. The reason I say this is because there is a wire that has melted and broke appart on the side of the clip of thr rectifier. I''m not sure exactly which one but it is one of the three iwres leading from the alternator. on top of this the two red/white and red from the solinoid leading to the fuse box has also melted. When the bike "was running" these last two wires, especially the red/white to the fuse box would consistantly get HOT. I have checked the outputs of all of the electrical equipment on the bike and they seem to be ok (they all read in the specs.) I''m confused because even though the bike is 21 years old the internals and all other equipment are in perfact condition. the bike also only has a total of 19,700 mile on it and i''v put 6000 of those on it in the last 3 years???

What you are describing sounds exactly like a loose connection. If you haven''t done this already, disconnect the two connectors for the R/R and check the female spade lugs to see if they are loose. You can buy a male spade lug to push into the female to check for tightness. If it''s loose then use a set of needle nose pliers to crimp the female spade lugs a little. Just because they plug in to each other does not mean that you are getting a tight connection. Also, how do you know they were not loose?

Honda CBR 600 F service manual


Hi, Anonymous the vast majority of service, parts fiche, and owners manuals on the internet are "FREE" to download and all service manuals contain wiring diagrams in the back pages. The rest usually charge a modest fee around $10-15 and there is a handful of obscure, rare, obsolete, and very old models that are no longer or never were available, for these rare occasions I shall look on eBay and find the cheapest one available. Most of the manuals will cover your exact make, model, and year otherwise one will be provided that comes as close as possible to your bike and will have most of the same info that an exact manual would have. If there is no $ sign after the manual link it is free to download for viewing or printing. To download your manual please click on the blue links below. Good luck and have a wonderful day

1994 Honda CBR 600 F(2)R will not start when engine is hot


Hi, Anonymous your bike starts great when cold but once it reaches operating temperature and the engine is shut off for a few minutes then you try to restart it and it will turn over but will not fire or it doesn't do anything, the usual suspects are:
1. When electronics get hot they build up resistance then stop working. It might be an ignition coil, stator, CDI unit etc. First, you must find out if the spark dies out. When the bike won't start, pull a plug wire off, stick a new spark plug in the end and ground the threads on bare metal while someone cranks the engine over. You should see a nice big blue spark between the spark plug gap. Incorrect spark plug gap will cause or contribute to a no start when hot issue.
2. Fuel Tuners have been known to cause this type of problem, disconnect it and see if resolves the issue.
3. Any engine management sensor could be faulty especially the ones that monitor temperature.
4. Gas cap not venting properly, improperly routed fuel lines they must always go down from the gas tank to the carburetor never in any kind of a loop this will cause a vapor lock. Clogged, bent, kinked, pinched or restricted carburetor vent lines will do the same.
5. Overhead camshaft valves adjusted too tight when cold, this will cause loss of compression when hot, except for pushrod engines they usually get looser when hot.
