Question about 1997 Honda CBR 1100 XX Super blackbird

1 Answer

1997 cbr1100xx, slight hesitation of throttle response at higher rpms & speed. The bike only has 6900 original miles on it! It pulls like a beast up until about 9000 rpm range and then it acts like it's not getting gas just for a split second

Hi and welcome to FixYa,

Offhand, I am tempted to suspect a small airleak (not a vacuum leak). This could be on:

  • any of the rubber couplings from the airbox to the air intake, loose, mis-aligned or detached;
  • a torn air filter/cleaner or unevenly fitted;
  • the upper half of the airbox loose, mis-aligned or not fitted properly;
  • in some instances, this could be brought about by aftermarket air filters such as those by K&N without a rejetting/tuning done.
Good luck and thank you for using FixYa.

1999 mitsubishi montero sport. Randomly started hesitations and low rpms in gear at idle. and highway speeds dropped rpms slightly and when let off accelerater rpms drop too quick and low. Any ideas?


Engine light on? Many things can cause this. Mass airflow sensor, throttle pos. sensor, cam sensor, idle control valve, O2 sensor, vacuum leak etc, diagnosis be great. Good luck

Hello all, I was just wondering how to fix an apparent open throttle on a 1982 Honda cb750 Nighthawk 750?


I suspect that the throttle cable is out of the end setting from removing and replacing the carbs or a return spring for the cable has broken off and not pulling the throttle back to idle position

I recently purchased a 2002 lowrider with only319 miles on it obviously it has sat awhile. It has a hard time idling on initial warm up and when warmed up giving it a little throttle (not under load) it...


The bike may suffer from a combo of the gas going stale in the carb, and may have slightly clogged the small passageways, but if it starts and runs you are halfway there. Use some carb or fuel injection cleaner in the gas tank to help out there. As far as cold start, it may be from a lean condition form the factory, and the coughing and popping are symptomatic of that. If you have a good HD shop nearby, they should be able to change the slow speed up just a bit, to pretty much take care of the issue of coughing, popping and cold start issues. My bike was the same, I bumped the low speed jet up , but still have a cold blooded bike, it takes a while to run properly form cold start, and will pop if driven too soon or if it is cold out until she warms up good. Some advice for cold start, use the choke know as usual, then push in the choke as soon as you can, and use the throttle to keep RPMs up about 1000 using throttle lock to RPMs there. As the motor warms up RPMs will increase on their own and you can adjust the RPMs lower as motor warms using throttle and throttle lock. Use your hand to touch the heads, as the motor warms up you'll feel heat, when she's too hot too touch, she is ready to ride. See you in the wind.

Can you hear when valves need adjusting on 1997 shadow spirit? Can it hurt the bike if you ride it with out adjusting valves? I hear a "ticking" at medium to high RPM. Not sure if it is valve or something...


If the ticking sound speeds up when you throttle up more than likely its the valve you are hearing.
If your valve need adjusting and you continue to ride it you have a greater chance of burning the valve out or floating a valve at higher RPMS.

Mess up


Your bike is most likely running a little lean on the idle/slow-speed circuit. The jets might need a cleaning, or you've got a slight air leak somewhere. Other possibilities ... - Idle mix screw out of adjustment (Probably not as it's sealed and 'supposed to be' tamper free) - Carbs slightly out of synch
