Question about 1988 Honda CBR 600 F Hurricane

2 Answers

Starting up a garage queen

I just got a 1988 600 cc Honda Hurricane which has been garaged for the past 6 years. Besides replacing the battery and changing the oil and gas, is there anything else I should do for servicing/tuning up?

I had a friend who bought a motorcycle that only sat for 2 years, and he had to remove the gas tank and thouroughly clean it. His bike (87 ninja 600) didn't have a fuel filter, so he bought a universal filter at a parts store (the clear glass kind you can take apart and clean), and had to clean it almost daily. I think they sell a kit for cleaning and resealing a motorcycle gas tank. I would reccomend this if it did sit with fuel in the tank.

2007 Honda Shadow Fuel Valve Damaged

Hi Steve, probably the latter and the usual suspects are:
1. Fuel tank empty.
2. Fuel supply valve/petcock turned off.
3. Fouled spark plugs.
4. Engine flooded as a result of over use of enrichner.
5. Vacuum hose to fuel supply valve/petcock disconnected, broken, cracked, or pinched.
6. Fuel valve/petcock or filter clogged.
7. Discharged battery, loose, corroded or broken battery terminal connections especially the "NEGATIVE" cable inside the harness at both ends.
8. Loose or corroded wire connection at the coil, battery or plug between ignition sensor and module.
9. Spark plug cables in bad condition and shorting, cable connections loose, or connected to the wrong cylinders.
10. Ignition timing incorrect due to faulty ignition coil, ignition module or sensors (MAP, CMP CKP and/or BAS).
11. Sticky or damaged valve or pushrod wrong length.
12. Primary cam sprocket spline sheared or missing spacer.
13. Security alarm needs a reset.

I have no spark at any of the spark plugs. The bike ran very well and sat for 10 years or so in garage and now there is no spark? Thanks,

Did you put in a new battery? that battery is likely shot, and not likely to take enough charge to give a good enough spark to ignite ! Also, make sure the new battery is fully charged!

I have a liftmaster formula 1 garage door opener. for the past year, the remote will work every time if in the garage, however, outside of the garage it only works maybe 10 percent of time and then i have...

Yes, replace the remote battery. It is losing power, thus working at short range only. Loss of range is the key indicator for a remote battery going out.

Worked great the past 2 years. Now, garage door

Remove the cover and take a look at the drive gear. It is white nylon and is just in front of the motor. Most likely stripped.
