SOURCE: spark plugs
You need to remove the cowling (Remove all allen keys 2 x 8mm bolds under light, 2x push type secures)
Then remove the bolt at the rear of the tanks slide the tank back and rest carefully. (I managed this with out disconnecting it)
One at a time remove HT lead, using 16mm spark plug socket with about 50mm long extention and ratchet remove and replace the spark plug. (When tightning remember with new spark plugs there is a crush washer so do it up as you can comfortably then a 1/4 turn more.also the spark plug removing tool is to long so don't bother with this) Then move to the next plug
Then replace tank and cowling all done. (This is a good opertunity to wash the screen cowling and frame which it is all in pieces)
This is approx a 2 hour job.

SOURCE: HONDA CBF 600 cant start
well first off i never wash my bike....i hand towel everything and for the tough greasy spots i use Chemtool b-12 basically MEK, please wear gloves and mask when using this, it has highly toxic fumes!! Second when you wash a battery with water and dont wipe it dry it'll cause a drain across the top because there is now a water conection between the two...always keep the battery top clean. thats what probably happen to you the first time. first off let me know ..does it bump start o.k. everytime? and there is the possiblity that since you've be washing your bike that the kill switch is not functioning properly you might have got moisture in there.
by a cheap trickle charger let it charge for about four hours leave the seat off and take a meter to it to see what the voltage is..it should be about minmum 12.6v that sufficient. 13 would be excellent. 12.2 means it dying. Crank it up to 4000 prm and watch the votage go to 15v and then regulate down to about 13v...if this checks out your battery system is in good shape. also make sure that all your spark plug wires are securely connected..it"ll only take one to mess it up. Yours is probably fuel injected and im not to much up on that so thats about all i can suggest or you can do something that i swear by that i used when i had bad hesitation and just a crappy ride and wont hurt your engine...by some Seafoam for an automotive store and pour about a tird of it in about two gallons of gas and ride a minimum of fifteen miles getting up to speed once in awhile to work this stuff through after ten miles it just kicked in and back to normal ever since...so now i use a tad everyweek to keep it that way. i now have only a 1% starting problem as opposed to at 10% non-starting problem....must still be a little dirt or gunk still in there.Just remember bump start it add some sea foam...it might ride rough for the first five miles but keep at it dont let it stall. later.
