Check for a blocked airbox vent, sometime we put things under the seat that will cover the airbox inlet which will automatically make the bike run extremely rich and all that needs to be done is to remove the paper or gloves or whatever there is blocking the inlet snorkel. You may also want to check for tight intake valves too. That is classic Honda, tight valves will cause a rich mixture all the time if it is the intake valves making the problem.
Please let me know if this works, if not give me more specific data and I will better assist you.

I have an 83 Honda CB650. After running it for a half hour or so, it starts to idle really rough and will die if I don't stay on the throttle. Then it won't restart until the bike has cooled down......


indicates an electronic unit failure from internal shorting and overheating
could be the (ECM)control unit or coil/sif not electronic control , then the ignition module

What is the gas mileage on this bike that holds 4.2 gallons? Also, how do i activate the reserve tank? Just bought this bike and didn't get a manual with it. How many miles can i ride before i need an...


You didn't say what size Star you had.
Mileage for the 650 is listed at 47mpg ---for the 1100 42.8mpg

The indicator on the petcock valve should have a P & R on it--- P, is primary, R is reserve. It's a simple design, with 2 different length pickups on it. So if you can't read the lettering on the valve. remove the fuel line going to the carbs. when your tank is low on fuel--- And you can determine how to set it. The pickup for the reserve gas will be on the back, or looking at it, right side of the valve.

The owners manual states to change oil every 4000 miles and filter every 8000
Personally, i change BOTH every 3000 miles. Clean oil is the key to keeping a V-twin engine happy and running for many miles. SAE 20w50 synthetic is what i use. I believe the manual calls for 20w40, which is fine for break in and while the bike is under warranty.
The choice is yours.

The Clymer service manual, is a handy tool to have. I recommend you get one. Ebay is a good place to find them along with Amazon....

I hope this helps & good luck with your Star...these are good bikes.

How many mounht need to change oil


Usually you want to change oil about every 2-3000 miles depending on the type of bike and type of riding you do. If you only ride a few miles a season [under 2000], I would recommend changing it at the beginning of the season. If your bike is equiped with an oil filter always change it at the same time. - Les, happy riding.

After riding aboue 8 miles from a cold start my 2004 FLH begans to misfire at an engine speed of 2000 RPM. will not clear up until the bike has cooled off. and then it starts all over again. please help


If your bike is carburated, install a new set of spark plugs and don't use the enricher as much. Harley's enricher is very rich and will foul the plugs is left on too long during warm up of the engine. I use the enricher to start the cold engine but as soon as I can keep the engine running without the enricher, I turn it off.

If your bike is fuel injected, you'll have to take it to the dealer or a shop to check for any "codes" that may be on the computer and recalibrate the fuel map.

Good Luck

What kind of maintenance should i do to my 1989 cbr 600 f to keep it in tip top running condition


  • Change gearbox oil every 3000 miles. Change oil filter every 6000 miles. Use 10w40 motor oil. NEVER use synthetic lubricants as they can mess up the clutch.
  • Oil the chain every two weeks. Lube the control cables every oil filter change.
  • Keep the gas tank full in the cold months. This lessens internal tank rusting due to condensation in the tank. Drain the carbs when the bike will sit over the winter unless you plan on starting the bike every two weeks and letting it run for 15 minutes each time.
  • Be sure the gas valve is turned off when the bike is not in use.
  • Get a 2 amp trickle charger and charge the battery once a week for 4 hours in the winter. Be sure to keep enough water in the battery to cover the top of the plates in each cell. Know that batteries only last two years or so.
  • Check the chain tension once a month during the summer riding season.
  • Please rate my answer. Thanks.

Where is the oil plug to my honda 600 1993 shadow i want to change the oil. shoul i change the oil after riding 500 miles @ 75 miles per hour it was changed before i took te trip?


the drain plug is under the motor in left front of the crankcase it faces the out side not straight down, and it is behind the radiator hose. riding the bike at 500 miles at 70 mph will not hurt the oil you only need to change the oil every 3000 miles.

I doubt the bike has 100k on it, thats alot of riding! If it runs and looks good just figure it is a typo and ride it. As far as the oil filter that bike uses a spin on filter, it is painted black, screws on the front of the engine just above the oil pan just to the right of center.

CHARGE BATTERY, THEN START BIKE UP. AFTER RIDING


Sounds like you are not getting a charge from the alternator. You need to check battery voltage with a meter with the engine off, key off. Then again with it running, and the voltage should increase. If not, it's not charging.

2006 honda shadow 600 backfires through the carb


Sounds to me like your running too rich, IE - theres too much fuel being burned as opposed to air. I'd check and make sure your airfilter isnt dirty, anything that restricts airflow can cause this. Dont leave the enricher on once the bikes started up...make sure you have the right plugs in there

Possible eclec prob


You are experiancing voltage issues, check the voltage at the battery with the bike running, you should be charging about 13 to 14 volts at a few 1000 rpms if not you have a issue with the chargeing system. could be the stator or regulater.
