glad to hear it was only the battery.

when you buy one (either from a store or online), be sure to trickle charge it completely BEFORE using it on the bike. gotta start with a fully charged battery or it will never perform properly in the future.

online stores will sell you "dry" batteries so you'll have to buy some acid at your local auto parts store. if you get it from a store, it should come "wet". both will need a charge first.

2 years is about right for a lead-acid battery especially the lower end units. if you go with a yuasa brand, expect additional 1 to 2 years.

glad i could help. enjoy that classic!

probably starter relay. clicking it it trying to throw over the relay switch, remove it if you can and bang it on the ground and put it back and try it. if not try banging it with handle of screwdriver or something you can get to it with. let me know what happens.

SOURCE: 1982 Honda Magna VF750 won't start.

Try starting it then pull the plug out right after trying if the plug is wet you have to much fuel and the float is stuck or has a hole in it and it is most likely your problem if you have fire. if it is flooded you can pull out the spark plug and clean it and kick the motor over to get excess gas out of the cylinder try installing it again then start it, does it fire up? if it does it's flooded due to the problem listed above. If it does not start pull plugs out again add a cap of motor oil in the cylinders and if the plugs are dry reinstall plugs and see if it runs, If it does it may have stuck rings the capful of oil will make the rings seat once this happens they rings should loosen up if not and it will not run after you shut it off then you have low compression. This is assuming you know you have a blue spark to the plug and have cleaned and gapped the plug or plugs. If you need more help psot here and reply tothe e-mail you recieved with this. Hope this helps.

I have a 1982 Honda CB900 c custom. When i get into higher RPMs i have oil blowing out of the right side oil breather tube. What would be causing that?


Hi Anonymous, could be your oil tank is overfull should have at least 1" breathing room and I am sorry you can't find the first and best tool you ever bought for your Honda but despair not for a mere $11 you can download another one. For more information about your issue, please visit the websites below. Good luck and have a nice day.

Why doesn't my 02 Honda cbr keep charge.


You could load test the battery ,to see if its good ,if it is good or new,it may be your stator,or charging system.You could check the voltage of the battery while its running to see if its charging. I found ,they dont like not being started,or sitting for awhile. Ive installed a battery tender ,that keeps my battery fully charged even if you let the bike sit for extended periods of time. Its a very low amp charging system ,then turns itself on and off,to keep your battery fully charged. Sometimes there called Float chargers too.

I have a 1982 cb900 that makes a strange noise on


I would check the stator, if all looks good then move to the clutch side. I am thinking that it might be the clutch springs that have gone bad

It could be your primary chain and chain guides,the chain wears and the guides harden with time and will transfer more internal engine noise through the transmission.
There is also on the primary hub/sprocket and internal rubber damper all this stuff ages with in time loosing there dampening qualities.
resulting in amplified mechanical noise.

Note: ...idle screw fully backed off... My 1982 Honda CB900 C is idling too high - after warm-up - 2-2500rpm. At start-up, it's 1100. The carbs have been overhauled & set-up, pilot screws set from 1.5...


Sounds like the plungers are in backwards,one side has the groove for the idle screw,the other side has an alignment slot.when you look into the top of the carb with the plunger out,you will see a pin sticking out of one side,that pin must line up with the slot on the plunger that runs from top to bottom

Battery


they make a charger called a battery tender which keeps your battery topped at all times with a trickle charge. get one and your batteries won;t die.
