Question about Motorcycles

1 Answer

2003 Honda cbr 600 f4i, recently bought a bike, rear brake works but when front brakes pressed it wouldn't work. Plugged the wires in and the brake light stays on.. my guess is a crossed wire but I had no color legend and want to avoid removing all plastics. Any info on wire color code for brake system?

While it COULD be a "crossed wire", you didn't say WHAT wires you "plugged in".

For example, an Harleys, if the brake light stays on all the time, it's 99% the front brake light switch, at the master cylinder, that's the problem, as the switch is a momentary (spring loaded), normally closed (ON in the normal/relaxed position)

SOURCE: 00 CBR F4 brake lights dont come on when applied

Have you tried powering the brak circuit itself at bulb. If it comes on then you need to find broken wire between light and switches. Since neither work if you can trace to where they meet break should be behind that.

SOURCE: my gas gaueg on my cbr 600 f4i is not on

I have an 06 F4i myself. There is no gas guage untill you hit your reserve with is close to 0.9 gallons left. Once you hit that you have about 35 miles left. On your next fill up clear your trip meter which you hold down the bottom left button on your gauges and it will clear it. Ride all the way till your reserve kicks on and see how many miles you have gone till reserve. Now you can use that information to help know how much gas you have in your tank.

Will the ECM 38770 from a 929 Fireblade work on a 2003 CBR F4I 600?@


Hi, Stacy ECM-ICM-ECU is a small computerized electrical component commonly referred to as the "Black Box". It receives data from various sensors and calculates when spark should occur. Each Black Box is specifically programmed for the year-make-model of a particular motorcycle and will only work on that bike. There may be a few that share the same part number with other years or models but you would have to look that information up in a parts catalog or "FICHE"

Reserve fuel indicator is not working anymore


Hi, Hossam and the usual suspects are:
1. Faulty fuel sending unit.
2. Short in the wiring between the sending unit and the light.
3. Burned out indicator light.

Cbr 600 f4i when i take off it goes dead and the fi light comes on


Sound like you have a faulty fuel pump that is about to go out or possibly have a clogged screen. Either way, the bike is starving for fuel when you attempt to accellerate, but is just getting enough to start and idle.

2008 Honda CBR 600 RR brake light and license plate light not working


Hi, Anonymous before diagnosing any brake light issue always check the bulb and fuse first for integrity a brake light staying on is usually caused by the front brake light switch, which is mechanical, not disengaging. On early models moving the throttle control housing closer to the front brake master cylinder is the main fix. On late models, the switch gets tweaked and needs to be realigned. A brake light that does not come on when the brake lever is applied can be caused by a faulty switch or no continuity in the wiring at the switch. The rear brake light switch is hydraulic and it is extremely rare to malfunction in a closed circuit condition causing the brake light to stay on. Usually, rear brake light switch issues are caused by no brake pedal free play or a sticky rear master cylinder piston. A brake light that does not come on when the rear brake pedal is depressed can be caused by a faulty switch, air contamination in the brake line, or no continuity in the wiring at the switch.

No ignition lights or any other lights battery fully charged and tryed jump leads as well


I just came across a problem like yours on a cbr 600 F4i the dash was out, and it had no running lights in the back or brake lights, or turn signals either. It ended up being the right front turn signal. My customer had crashed and the wires were touching , thus shorting out the fuse. which is under the rider seat on the left side. It was a 10 amp fuse. you should have an extra one on there . hope it helps.
