Question about 2005 Honda CBR 600 F

1 Answer

I was wandering if I need to replace my clutch.

When I started my bike a couple of days ago, a cbr 600 it was in neutral. When I put it in first it stalled 3 or 4 times before I could put it in gear.

    I appreciate you taking the time to help me.No there was no loud noise it just stalled and it hasnt done it since. That makes alot of sense I never even thought about the kick stand killn the engine. If I continue to have the problem I would like to be able to fix it myself I was a car mechanic for 2 years, but when it comes to bike this is my first. I also wanted to know, my buddy told me cbr 600s and his sasuki were high rev bike, I used to driving stck and im worried im doggn the bike. If im doin 35-40 in second and im at 6 1/2-7 1/2 rpms am i doin damage to the bike is it ok to wind out the gears, it feels to me it responds/performs freat at 8-9 rpms. I hate to sound like such a noob but ill put my pride down i love my bike and i wanna treat her good. Thanks again for takn the time to help.

    Bought 1996 shadow 600 from dealership two days ago. Drove it straight home no problems. Sat in my garage, for 1 day. Now when I tried to start it, It would attempt to start then make a *errrr* sound. Now, whenever I try to start it, no noise will occur, like it's not even trying. The headlight works but the neutral light is out. I did have it in neutral, and when I start it, I always use the clutch. Any ideas?

Have you tried adjusting your clutch cable? If the clutch was bad you would rev the engine in gear but the bike would not speed up as it should because the clutch was slipping. But if your cable is out of adjustment pulling the lever may not be disengaging the clutch. You should find the adjustment at the clutch lever, should be a larger locknut and a smaller adjusting screw. You want about 1/2" of freeplay in the lever before it starts disengaging the clutch.

Did it stall with a big **** like you didn't pull in the lever or did it just die? If it died, maybe the sidestand switch is faulting, killing the engine because it thinks your kickstand is still down.

    You can shift fairly low in the rpm range if you like. http://www.sportrider.com/bikes/046_0607... has a dyno chart for a similar bike, you can see you're making 40 hp even at only 6000 rpm. That's plenty for just riding around without lugging the engine. As a comparison, my bike has only 43 hp at the rear wheel at 6250 rpm and I routinely shift between 4-5000. Don't be afraid to wind it out a bit, you won't hurt anything if you get up towards redline now and then.

    Ride safe.

My 91 cbr 600 f2 runs good but when i pull clutch in and drop to first it kills the motor why??


Does the motorcycle to to go forward when you drop it to first gear with the clutch pulled in ?
If not then it could be the kill switch for the clutch is not working properly. If you left the bike in first gear and you try to start the bike
without the clutch pulled in the bike not start until the clutch is pulled in.

I am not sure but there may also be a interlock switch on the clutch lever. Check to see if that switch is closing when you pull in the lever.

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.

I have a 1999 Honda CBR 600 f4 and recently it won't start while in gear. Before, I could start it while I gear with the clutch lever pulled. Now it only starts while in neutral. Any ideas?


the neutral light, side stand switch and clutch switch are all wired together.
If the neutral light works.then check the side stand cut out works as normal, finally check the micro switch under the clutch lever, it should make a tiny click when the clutch is activated, also check it with a multi meter, follow the wires back to the plug and check the resistance goes from 0 to 1 with the clutch pulled

Hi!!!!! i have an kawasaki zx6r 1998 and it dosent want to start , i started it 2 days ago, but today it dosent want i charged battery, and when i push start button it dosent do nothing, i checked coil...


Check the clutch, neutral and side stand safety interlocks.
Double check that the bike is in neutral, and the clutch is pulled in when trying to start the bike.
If the bike is in gear with the side stand down, the bike cuts off all ignition.
If the clutch isn't pulled in, the starter won't engage.
Check all these safety interlock switches, and make sure you are in neutral with the clutch in when trying to start the bike.

make sure your kill button is not on. also kickstand is all the way
