Question about 1998 Honda CBR 900 RR Fireblade
I have a Honda Fireblade m reg 96-97. It wont start. It was sitting for 2 years. I changed the oil, fuel, spark plugs, and nothing. It sometimes backfires, but won't run?
Had the same problem afte not starting the bike for a few yrs.. its definitely the smaller jets in the carbs.. you need to take off the carbs and gently clear the smaller of the two jets with a needle and some carb cleaner so that you can blow through it... anything else is a waste of time. ... there's some great vids on utube how to remove and clean the carbs but its definitely the smaller of the two jets blocked in each of the 4 carbs... not that hard to do neither. . Good luck

You must open up completely your carburetors.The old gas turns to gel after a couple of months.First clean them up good and then we can assume it is something else if it still does not start.

Hi and welcome to FixYa,
Initially, confirm presence and consistency of spark on the plug ends when cranking. Thereafter check for fuel reaching inside the cylinders by cranking with sparkplugs in place but not HT wires connected. Remove the plugs and note for presence of fuel.
Perform above spark and fuel tests; postback results.
Note: Almost always, the carbs has to be pulled out for a complete cleanup. The old gasoline could have turned to varnish like substance and coated the ports, jets, passage ways and carb bowl/walls.
Good luck and thank you for using FixYa.
