Question about 1985 Honda XR 250 R

3 Answers

CBR 600 F3 1996, stored for 4 years

I'm about to buy a CBR 600, in very good chape, with only 18.000 kms.
The problem is that the bike has kept in a farm warehouse for 4 years. The worst thing is that somebody took the spark plug from one cylinder (4th Cyl,) and left the wole without any protection at all.
As the engine does not work for long, I'll change all the fluids and lubricants, but I' m realy concerned about the posisble damages in that cilynder - humidity, dirt, etc.
What you recomend to do? To put WD40 immediately is a good idea?
Thank you,
Francisco Azevedo

The honda cbr will only run on the 3 cylinders, if u try to put a spark plug in the last cylinder u will find that there are no treads for it but the wires will stick in the whole and does create a spark on a plug if one is put on, the fourth cylinder is there to balance the weight distribution

Put a teaspoon of eucalyptus oil in the cylinder and turn it over and listen where the spark plug goes in the head. if u hear a grinding noise stop and rebuild the cylinder. if there is no noise out of the ordinary it should be fine to run..

It might be a good idea to flush everything out with clean oil. And maybe clean the oil filter. And clean the crankcase and stuff.

2002 Honda CBR 600 F(4)I what does the f1 light mean


Hi, Stevebrown10 it should be noted that the reasons your FI light stays on constantly or flashes and your bike will or will not start and may turn over or not, these conditions will vary from bike to bike depending on the year, make, and model and you should always refer to your owners/service manual for proper diagnostic procedures. It should also be noted that any type of prior work done to the bike or an abnormal event occurrence IE: adding accessories, electrical curiosity/adventures, laying the bike down/crashes, rain storms/bike washings just before FI light issues started can be significant hints/aids into tracking down the gremlin. The newer the bike the more sensitive the ECM becomes and will not let the bike start when aftermarket accessories have been installed without being reprogrammed. That being said the usual suspects are:
1. Faulty Fuel Pump, fuse or system relay switch.
2. Battery starting to fail due to old age/damage, perform a load test.
3. A discharged battery, check battery terminals for damage or corrosion, check the battery cables at "BOTH" ends for loose, corroded, or broken connectors, "INSIDE" and outside the cable harness, perform connector wiggle test and check cables with an ohmmeter if necessary.
4. Faulty safety switches/sensors: run/off, ignition, clutch lever, neutral, side stand, tip over, fuel, and or their connections.
5. Broken wire or worn insulation exposing wire to a ground situation especially inside wire harness at tight bends around fairing brackets, under dash panels, under fuel tanks over cylinder heads etc. Many harnesses are open on the ends that will allow water to enter and accumulate at v-bends.
Dielectric grease and contact cleaner are your best friends for wire/cable/harness connectors, look for corroded, broken, or loose pins/sockets.
6. Installation of aftermarket accessories ie. exhaust systems, mufflers, air cleaners, fuel tuners, electrical component etc.

Front brake calipers have had it on my brothers bike, buying all the seals and bits works out nearlythe same as just gettin a different set? will a different year fit?or does it have to be 600 fn 1992????


Having just changed the seals on my old suzuki, I know what you mean about cost. However, any secondhand set may be in just as bad condition, so make sure you get a good look at them (ask me how I know!).
For caliper/bike details try www.cmsnl.com
They should cover the CBR series and have great parts diagrams. Just get the part number for the current brakes, then compare with the later models listed.
