Question about 1998 Honda VFR 800
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
