i could not find a schematic of a 96 cbr400rr, so guessing this bike is not from the USA. however, there should be a master fuse near the battery on the positive side mounted to the battery box somewhere. i would check this fuse first to see if its burned out.
also, is battery fully charged? might have to top charge the battery to get good juice if its old (>3 years) and been sitting for a bit.

It all seems to be leading to fuel starvation. Have you checked the tank breather is not blocked which can be a small hole in the petrol cap or a tube from under the tank. It could also be a blocked fuel filter. There should be two. One inside the fuel tank under the petcock, another before the fuel pump. Here is the workshop manual where you can find all info you will ever need for this bike.
Hop this has been useful, rate me if it has...?
Thanks and good luck.

Clutch plates wiuld affect all gears.The type of oil in the enine affects the plates. .Make sure you the clutch is not hanging up and has free play on lever when clutch is engaged. It should be slipping bad. ckeck clutch lever on yhe engine for full release and free play.. good luck

SOURCE: 1988 Honda VT1100 Clutch problem
hi,might be able to help,there is probably nothing wrong with your master cylinder assembly,what has happened is that the clutch plates have stuck together,there are two ways to fix it,one is easy one not quite so easy,try the easy one first,what i normally do in this case is start the bike,roll down a hill or get someone to push you just to get moving,pull in the clutch,change up into second gear,to get the gear box working,change up into the highest gear you can(you dont need the clutch to change up)all the while you are still holding the clutch lever in,get up to a reasonable speed say 20-30 mph,keep the throttle open a little,keep the clutch lever in and start applying the brakes,it may take a few meters but the plates will let go and normal clutch operation should return,as the plates free up,the second option is to remove the engine cover dissasemble the clutch pack and free the plates manually,personally,i have always used the first method,sounds complicated but is actually very simple to do and will save a lot of time and frustration,give it a go first before you pull your bike apart,this is quite a common problem on bikes that have been sitting for a while..hope this helps..cheers

Testimonial: "I did try this but it did not work. I drove it for about 4 miles going up and down the gears and applying the brakes. I guess it has to come apart."
