Question about Honda CBR 600 RR Motorcycles

1 Answer

Can't start my bike

So pretty much I was doing a wheelie and as soon as I came down the bike started to bog and had no throttle response and then completely shut off on me. I went to start it again and it acted as if the battery had no power because I even took the seat off and all I would hear is one single click every time I hit the starter button. The thing that worries me is that this has happened before where the battery loses its charge and all I would do is bump start it. This time I can't even bump start it. I'm really worried I did something to the engine but I don't understand why the bike would completely shut off and have a dead battery. It's been at my buddies house sitting on a charger for a couple of hours so if he goes to start it and it starts up what's the issue? and if he goes to start it and it still doesn't start what would be the issue in that case?

    If the regulator/rectifier failed would that prevent me from even bump starting the bike?

If it starts after a charge from a battery charger, then you need to check the charging system on the machine. If the rectifier has failed it will kill your battery. If the regulator has failed it won't charge properly and could again kill your battery. But, you should check all the connections on your bike as they aren't designed to take the stress caused by the post wheelie bang. If you want to wheelie then I would suggest you buy an off-roader, they are designed to take punishment of this type. If you watch Rossi, Lorenzo and Crutchlow you will notice that they do everything they can to stop their machines from doing wheelies.

SOURCE: Rectifier Problem

If the battery is charged, its charged..... redpoint5 is right, check the battery when hot... If the battery was not charging i would then look into the charging system, rectifier, etc.... Is it an air cooled engine? Sometimes engines can get a little warped when hot... My grandfather had Corvair vans as taxis that somehow always got overheated, after that they would never start hot. So, he had to leave them running all day.... If your battery is OK you may want to have a look at your starter.... Or, bypass the selenoid with a jumper cable and see if the starter kicks over fine when jumped directly...... That would indicate a bad or worn selenoid.

SOURCE: Starting problem S&S 96 CI engine

sounds like the starter solonoid is not working properly if the batt cable got hot enough to smoke that says the batt, is ok and it is ok to jump with car, the solonoid is making the clicking noise and a real hot batt sometimes will make it work, the repair is simple and cheap if you are talented just get a solonoid repair kit three screws 5 min, and you are RIDEING.

dont know if you got the answer from someone who knows what the hell they are talking about cause obviously these idiots never owned a 96 s-rad. the problem is that your engine is loading up with fuel and basically vapor locking the engine witch you could also call severely flooding it. you have a carb problem as do i and if a real mechanic comes on and reads our problem please let us know how to solve... thank you

Bike turns on and runs, but won't go over a certain speed without bogging. I cleaned the tank, filter, and put new fuel. Still bogs. Will run 45-50 mph at full throttle.

Try taking the carburetor float bowl off and check to see if anything got in there. I posted you a problem I had with my bike. I turned the throttle and the engine just died. As soon as I let off the throttle the engine would start running again. Found a powdery rust like substance in the nut in the bottom of the bowl. Kept gas from going up the main jet when I cracked open the throttle. My bike is an old Harley but carburetors pretty much work the same way however they may look. Give it a try, you said you tried everything else. You may even be able to take the float bowl off without removing the carburetor from the bike. Let us know if you had any luck.

Loosing power

  1. Power Wheelies
    • 1 Stand above the motorcycle with it running in neutral at the starting line of the track or one end of a long practice area. Pull in the clutch and shift the motorcycle into first gear.
    • 2 Begin rolling forward by rolling on the throttle smoothly and slowly letting out the clutch. When you are at a speed that is comfortable enough to put both feet on the pegs, lean forward on the bike and roll the throttle back quickly. Make this motion as fluid as possible so as not to overdo the wheelie. The front of the motorcycle will rise off the ground.
    • 3 Rev the motorcycle all the way to the red-line in first gear to pull the front of the motorcycle up into the air. This will not be a high or long wheelie, but is a great starting point. When you hit the red-line, pull in the clutch and shift to second. The front end will fall back down. Do not, for any reason, activate the front brake, while the front wheel is in the air, as this will cause the bike to crash upon contacting the pavement.
    Clutching Up
    • 4 Begin riding at a moderate pace in second or third gear. Be sure that you have plenty of space in front of you before beginning the execution of a "Clutch Up"
    • 5 Pull in the clutch as if to shift to the next gear but do not press the shift lever. Instead, rev the motorcycle by rolling back on the throttle smoothly and quickly. Let go of the clutch quickly (but as smoothly as possible) and lean forward to offset the power of the motorcycle.
    • 6 Repeat this maneuver multiple times to get comfortable with the motions. The front of the motorcycle may hop only slightly until you figure out the right amount of throttle and clutch to give the engine. Remember to never hit the front brake with the wheel in the air.
    • 7 Perform a proper wheelie by pulling in the clutch, revving the engine, leaning forward slightly and then dropping the clutch. Be sure to cover the rear brake with your right foot as it will keep the motorcycle from flipping if you give it too much gas.
    • 8 Hold the throttle at a steady position to keep the front wheel in the air. Bring the front wheel back down by pulling in the clutch or pressing softly on the rear brake.

Motor seems to idle and run okay however it bogs down when you pull throttle quickly .it is a 1967 triumph 650 single carburetor .

Hi,,remove and clean the carb. before doing this you might want to check the air screw on the side of the carb, with the bike running turn the screw half a turn in and give the bike a rev,if it bogs more,turn the screw half a turn out and see if throttle response improves.

but when i tried to kick start the bike it had full compresion or near enough but makes a nocking noise at aboute half way down on the kick start. there for i striped the bike and checked piston rings valves , the lot rearly and it seem's as if the noise is from the gearbox if you lads could help would be great thanks,Could be a number of things. First, pull off the left side cover. You'll see the magneto and all that good stuff. Try and see if you can move it up and down at all. If you can, you'll need some crank bearings. If it's fine, check the condition of the clutch. That's all I can really think of if your top end's fine.,,,
