Question about 1989 Honda CBR 600 F(1)K
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?
