Question about 2006 Honda CBF 600
Bike lights up and headlights work, engine cranks with a new battery. fuel relay doesn't even turn on when I flip the kill switch on. seems to be a problem with the fuel pump not turning and pumping fuel. The bike has been in the shop for a month at a Honda power sports dealership. I drove it to them and they watched me drive in with no problems.. they attempted some cosmetics work on it and it won't start now...... they even put a new battery in. kinda crazy eh!!!!!

Hi, Anonymous the following is a systematic procedure for diagnosing fuel pump issues designed to keep "DRACHMA" to a minimum. If you need parts check with Amazon and eBay first to keep costs down.
1. If your pump does not turn on check the pump fuse and relay and all wiring including connectors for corroded, broken, or loose pins/sockets.
1. Normal fuel pump pressure is 3-5 PSI.
2. Check any rubber or plastic tubing for age-related pinholes by removing and plugging the ends that connect to the fuel valve and then turn on the ignition switch and watch for fuel streams exiting the pinholes, if any exist, replace tubing as necessary.
3. Check for a clogged a primary fuel filter that comes off the bottom of the pump to screen out big rocks and clean as necessary.
4. Check for a clogged secondary fuel filter that's outside if applicable by removing it from the system and replace it with a short splicing tube turn on the ignition switch and recheck fuel pressure if pressure increases to normal pressure you need a new secondary filter.
5. If all the above check out OK and the pump is not functioning properly then you need a new fuel pump.

I don't think you have a short. It sounds like the earth cable is broken somewhere and is arcing when you start drawing a bit of current.

check your key it has a chip in side it and it may be faulty try your spear and i know it sounds silly but just make sure your kill switch is set to run check the hiss fuse under the seat also swap your fuel pump relay with the fan one the fuel pump relay has brown wires going to it and the fan has black and blue if you have an alarm on it it will be worth checking that make sure that the fuel pump is pluged in under the tank take a look at the hiss light does it go out wen the bike is switched on if it stays on you have a HISS problem any problems let me know and i will do my best to help

see if you can find the fuel cutoff relay and jumper the connector with 12volts, you should be able to jumper across two wires, using a paper clip or something like that. Make sure key is off first ...now turn on the key and you should here it. The tail light could just be a separate issue, did you check your fuses.. maybe the bulb is burnt out. See if the bike will push start..if it does, then drive it and get up to speed if the fuel pump is not doing its job you wont be able to hold that speed for long..it might even start bogging down.
