Question about 1998 Honda VFR 800

2 Answers

Engine won't start

Battery is ok as it works on other bike, think it is a fuel problem. Not getting to the engine.
All lights, ignition work and engine tries to start on start up, think no fuel present or getting from tank to engine. Had a look at the pipes but havent removed them as tank is nearly full. Has anyone had such a problem before and can anyone give me some advice. Paul

I have a 2000 800fix and recently had a similar problem, turned out to be as simple as corroded spades at the fuel pump. i lifted tank at front and bridged the pump to the battery to check it still ran first, be careful running pump dry though as it uses fuel to cool, then cleaned the connection block and spades and voila!
Its a little difficult to get too though as pump is located under tank at towards the back of bike and was tricky to get too without removing tank completely, not sure if same layout on 98 model, but worth a try

If you can locate the fuel pump  check to see that it is working  when cranking the bike over this is the only time that the pump will work as it is pulsed off of a crank trigger touch it with your hand or have  a buddy  do this while u turn it over  if u can feel it working its probably  fine and should check tank and fuel outlet  for problems next

My honda ran well until I hooked tail lights up and now I have neutral light and oil light no other lights work also it don't fire when I crank it lights come on as long as its cranking


Hi, Steve 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 overuse of the enricher.
5. Vacuum hose to the fuel supply valve/petcock disconnected, broken, cracked, or pinched.
6. Fuel valve/petcock or filter clogged.
7. 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.
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 a faulty ignition coil, ignition module or sensors (MAP, CMP, CKP, O2 and/or BAS).
11. Faulty fuel pump fuse or relay.
11. Security alarm needs a reset.

Was riding bike and was stopped at a red light when it made a loud noise and died, now it won't start. The engine cranks and turns over but won't start.


You didn't say what year and model the bike was but on any four stroke engine, you must have three things for the engine to run. You need fuel, spark, and compression. The easy one to check is the fuel. Take your air filter off and make sure you're getting fuel to the engine. Then, check your spark. Pull the spark plug wires off the spark plugs in the head and insert another set of plugs in the wires. Ground the plugs against the engine, turn the ignition switch on and press the start button. Watch the plugs to see if you have spark. The next test is compression. With the engine cold, remove the spark plugs. If you have a compression gauge, connect it to one of the heads and spin the engine over with the starter. If you don't have a gauge, simply put your finger over the spark plug hole. Turn the throttle wide open and press the start button. You should show about a hundred pounds of compression if you have a gauge or the compression should blow your finger off the hole with a good deal of force if you're checking it that way. If you have all three of these and they're timed correctly, the engine should run. If the engine won't run, find out which of the three elements is missing and work from there.

Good Luck

Problem starting sv650s


remove spark plugs from block, place tread on block, turn over engine, best if blue, white ok, orange spark is bad, if you are getting orange, your ignition system is weak, usually the coil, and needs to be replaced. also make sure to take out the plugs after attempting to start, andmake sure they are wet and getting fuel.

My bike wont start


I have the same problem and same model (2008 KTM Adventure 990 S) so injection, not carburator.
I didn't start the engine for three months. I bought a brand new battery. Lights, fuel pump and everything seemed to be ok at the first key turn. But when you try to turn it even more to definitely start the engine, ignition fails. I think the electric engine of the starter is not working properly.
I tried to start the engine driving down the slope and releasing the clutch in 2nd gear at aprox 30 km/h and it started successfully.
I left it idle until became hot (15 min aprox) and the turned it off.
however it didn't start again when trying the ignition button.
Any ideas?

WONT START


when I tried to start it yesterday it would not start; pushing the ignition causes just one *click* sound and then nothing. The battery is reading 12.65V or so so that seems fine. I did some research and I think it's either along the lines of the spark plug(or ignition area) or maybe water in the float bowls from fueling up(?). I tried it again today and this time there was no *click* sound. I also noticed that the -neutral- and -check engine oil- lights which normally light up quickly at start up take a few seconds before lighting up. Now I think it's more in the electrical section but not exactly sure which area. I'm going to take a look at the spark plug and maybe try to drain any water out, but was wondering if anyone had any other ideas? ,When you press start, the churning sound you (typically) hear is from the starter motor forcibly turning the crankshaft. While the starter is physically turning the engine, the engine is also injecting the fuel/air mixture into the cylinders and firing the spark plugs. If the plugs successfully ignite the incoming fuel/air mixture, the engine will begin turning itself over. If you press the button and nothing happens, or you just hear a click, the starter motor is not cranking the engine. The click you heard was probably the starter solenoid attempting to engage the starter to the flywheel of the crankshaft. The problem is probably the starter. It may be a bad battery. Reading the open voltage with no load on the battery tells you nothing. Put the voltmeter across the battery terminals and read the voltage while holding the Start button.,,,
