Question about 2003 Honda Silverwing 600

1 Answer

Yellow Light On. 'V' is printed on the light.

Hi There,
See above problem. I do not have a manual unfortunately. Think this might indicate Voltage (??) but am not sure. Perhaps the battery needs water but am not sure where it is - only bought the bike recently - 2nd hand.

Any help would be appreciated

Hi John
The indicator light indicates that something is out of spec with your V belt drive. It may purely be just a distance traveled thing "time for service" indicator that can be reset. But, if you wish to get ongoing reliability from the motorcycle, then I suggest that you book it in for a service. Nothing worse than stuck on the side of the road broken down. Happy to talk to you more about it. Thanks for using FixYa
regards robotek

    when the v-matic yellow light comes on you are normally within 1,300 miles of needing to have the drive belt replaced. this occures at about 13,000 to 15,000 miles on the clock.

Alternator or Voltage Regulator or Other?

You will need to test the charging system. Try this simple test, hook a voltmeter to the battery and check the voltage with the key turned off. Should be 12 volts. Now start the engine and note the volt meter reading at idle, it should go up to about 13.8 - 14.2 volts. Rev the engine up and note what happens. If the voltage is low at low RPM 12V and then goes up with more RPM like you stated it could be the regulator or the alternator. Start by switching out or trying another voltage regulator. If this does not fix the problem you will need to test and repair the alternator. The alternator out put can be tested by bypassing the regulator. This requires special equipment and know how. I hope this gets you

Alternator or Voltage Regulator?

As a general rule, voltage regulators either work or do not; either-or.
This leans more to the alternator. Hook up a volt meter to the battery. Check your voltage engine off, then start it. watch the meter, if it stays below 12 volts and then suddenly jumps up when you reach 2500 rpm perhaps it's the regulator, if it slowly climbs as you describe with the lights your alt may be weak.
Do you have a lot of lights and accessories that stay on? Especially lights-extra lights can put quite a drain. Good luck to you!

The high beam blue light on the binacle remains on whether dipped or not?

Evidently the high beam indicator light (blue) is improperly wired. It should be wired with the yellow wire going to the high beam of the head light. You'll probably need a schematic to determine where the light should be connected. I'm sorry but I don't have a schematic for that bike. Harley used a white wire for the low beam and a yellow wire for the high beam for years but I think they changed on the late models.

Hi have a honda cbr 100f on a 1990 cant get a spark from it any help

Hi and welcome to FixYa,

Initially, for a no spark concern on a 1990 Honda CBR1000F, checks would be on:
  • presence of ignition +12 on the black/white wires to the ignition coil;
  • presence of pulsating voltage on the yellow/blue and blue/yellow wires to the ignition coil;
  • presence of pulsating low voltage between the yellow and white/yellow wires coming from the ignition pulse generator;
  • status of light green wire from neutral switch/indicator;
  • status of green/white wire from sidestand switch; or
  • try starting with the sidestand folded up and/or the clutch lever pulled in.

Good luck and thank you for asking FixYa.
