Question about 1990 Honda CBR 1000 F

1 Answer

Over heating hi, Can anybody help just recently my bike overheated in this bad recent cold weather, I heard a clattering noise from the bottom of the engine and water was coming out of the overflow pipe each time I put some in. Thinking that the water wasn't circulating around the engine I came to the assumption that the problem was the water pump, so I took it out and found that the propellors had sheared off. I've replaced the water pump and the water is now circulating properly as it should. I then took off the radiator cap and let the engine run to allow any air blocks to escape. Thinking that I had solved the problem I realised that after leaving the bike running it started to overheat again. My next thought is that it may be the thermostat but having no manual for this bike (and unable to get hold of one) I don't know where the thermostat is. Can anyone tell me if the thermostat is located below the radiator cap and if it's not the thermostat does anyone have any clues a to what might be the problem Thanks Jed

The thermostat is behined the radiator cap where 3 hoses join. Undo the 3 hose clamps & 1 wire & pull the fitting a part. If you can not get a honda thremostat, a car one will fit but it must open at 80-C at min. May need to change the o-ring as well.

I start my bike and after 4 5 second engine hed is very hot


Some description of 2-stroke or 4-stroke, number of cylinders, type of cooling would have been useful.

In mild or hot weather the head of an air cooled bike could conceivably be hand-hot in 45 seconds but mostly it would take considerably longer, especially if the engine is a 4-stroke. Of course just because an engine heats up quickly it doesn't mean it will overheat in use and air-cooled engines should not be operated for long while the bike is stationary, except in cold weather, but be put into normal use as soon as possible after starting.

If the engine is overheating there are various things that could influence or cause it. Ignition timing, valve timing, fuel air mixture, lubrication, detonation, restricted exhaust...

Good luck!

Triumph motorcycle cold start noisy


Was it notice able right after the service? It sounds like they didn't get it to oil pressure before starting the engine, doing this can damage the bearings on camshaft and small end. So now it needs more oil pressure to level out the damage to the shells.

Engine noise


If you dd not torque the front sprocket down correctly you could have an issue. If this is a new noise then be concerned, if this has progressed over time, then it is more than likely just the bike loosening up. Which is normal...but loud, could this be pre-detonation, did you make the correct adjustments to your MAP? Check you push rod adjustment with the bike cold, I mean Artic overnight not running cold.

ZRX1100 P reg (1990?) Runs nice and smooth, is as ecomical as usual, serviced recently (no carb icing). When cold and on tick over, there is a clatter as if something is loose. Using choke, noise goes away...


Hi ...... Does noise 'go-away' if you pull in the clutch ? Could be a few things, cam chain needs adjustment or replacement (35,000 miles-ish), rotor on some Kawasakis made up of steel centre,alloy middle & steel outer. Parts can become loose, short term solution is to centre tap/spot sections but ultimately replace rotor. Have you ever had the left casing off ? Is there a gasket fitted or a thinner pattern type fitted ? When was the last time valve clearences checked/changed ? Did they change shims on that side ?
Let us know how you get on.
