Honda sabre


I have an 04 Honda Sabre 1100 that does the same thing. If the rain is steady, it will actually die. After you come to a stop, it will start right away and run ok for a little while until you get up to speed in the rain and will die again. Very frustrating. Can't see any shorting when viewing in dark conditions. Bike shop also couldn't figure anything out. Any ideas?
If I figure anything out, I'll repost what worked for me.

Yz 426 while riding it i went to park it thought it was out of gear and let out on the clutch and it died went to start it back up and the kick start seemed to b stuck so i rocked it back and forth fi


How does the compression feel now that you have it cranking over again. Without the decompression lever pulled in it should be next to impossible to kick it over. also, is there any noise coming from the engine (knocking, etc.) when you got it to start again.

Charging system difficulties


the stator is probably damaged, where the wires come out of the casing check for voltage when the motor is running (dis-connect them from the main wiring harness first) if no voltage stator is trashed, if there is voltage then check your regulator and rectifier (these you can remove from the bike and take to a bike shop and have tested)

F1 light on and red light blinking, wont start


I was at the local race shop in Milton Fl getting new rear tire and the owner of the shop took it for a spin to scuff the tire. When he got back he said he got the F1 code. He plugged a short wire looking thing into a plug under the seat. Took it to code machine and got c-11 code. which is cam position sensor I think he said. but he said he had never seen that error code before. I think the F1 blinking light indicates an error only. You have to have it analyzed with the bike running and code blinking to diagnose the exact issue. Ive got the same bike pictured above and I have been getting error codes pretty much since I bought it brand new in 08. It doesnt seem to affect anything tho, the bike runs normally. Mine usually comes on everytime I start it when its cold. but I can let it run a few seconds then restart it and most of the time the light will not come back on for the rest of my ride. Every now and then it will come on while riding. So I dont know if I'm getting more codes than the C-11 that came up for dude at bike shop or not. I should have taken mine in to have it looked at but never did cuz the bike runs normal as far as i can tell. Annoying as hell though when it comes on at night.

Bike turn off while driving


I was on my way home from work when I stopped at the stop light and when I went to take off my bike just died. It started right back up but as I gave it gas it would die again. I managed to roll it out of traffic into a parking space. I tried the choke the fuel valve, but nothing worked. It would idle, but as soon as I would give it some gas it would just sputter and die. I got a ride to my house where I got my truck and came back to my bike. I started it up and soon as I gave it some gas, it died. I started it up again and gave it some gas and then it started working just fine. I revved it a few times, but it wouldn't die again. I drove it home and didn't have a problem. It seems to be running fine now. What the heck?? It only has 693 miles on it. It has almost a full tank of gas. What could possibly be wrong?,It's fuel or air related. If your bike didn't have any issues at all, no minor symptoms until it fell on its face like that, I'd wager something worked its way loose. Could be something is preventing fuel from reaching the carbs or something rattled loose in your airbox or carb boots. If something blocked off your air filter it would show those symptoms, or if you suddenly had a huge vacuum leak from a carb boot coming undone. I'd start by verifying you have fuel in the carbs by attaching a length of tubing and opening the drain screw at the bottom. Fuel comes out of your carbs, look elsewhere. No fuel, find out why it's not getting to your carbs. Perhaps your fuel line kinked.,,,
