Question about 1996 Honda RVF 400 NC35

1 Answer

Honda RVF400 '94 bike won't start. There's plenty of fuel and the battery is fine as it can continuously crank/ turn over when trying to start it. Have tried multiple roll starts to no avail. And have also tried switching to the reserve fuel tank to start it then back again with no luck either. I think it may have something to do with the plugs.

    I can't even find the location of the spark plugs to check them not for lack of tying though. The bike as an aftermarket fairing (RCV style) and everything is well tucked away underneath. I've taken the bottom part off back couldn't see anything and didn't want to remove the entire thing.

Hi, Sam and the usual suspects are:
1. Severely discharged or a damaged battery must have 12.5 volts or more and be able to pass a proper "LOAD" test if necessary, you may have a preliminary reading of 12.5 volts or more but little or zero amperage the battery is faulty and must be replaced, AGM batteries fail in this scenario more so than lead acid batteries.
2. Faulty alternator/generator and or voltage regulator.
3. Loose or corroded battery terminals and or cables especially the "NEGATIVE" cable, look for loose, corroded, or broken connectors inside the cable harness at "BOTH" ends.
4. Faulty main circuit breaker or ignition switch, check for loose connections and continuity.
5. Faulty system and or ignition relay, check for continuity.
6. Faulty ignition coil, ignition/electronic module.
7. Faulty CKP, CPS, CMP, MAP, TPS, or BAS sensor, corroded, loose or broken wire connector pins/sockets.
8. Throttle cables and or idle speed improperly adjusted hot idle speed should be 950 RPM to 1000 RPM.
9. Faulty neutral, side stand or clutch lever safety switch.
10. Fuel tank empty
11. Fuel tank contaminated with ethanol sludge.
12. Water or dirt in the fuel system, or clogged filter.
13. Restricted, blocked or kinked fuel line.
14. Faulty fuel pump.
15. Faulty pressure regulator.
16. Faulty or clogged fuel injectors.
17. Lean angle switch is faulty or needs adjustment.

1300 A5, 2005, new battery fitted. engine turns over but will not start plenty of fuel in tank fuses seem ok bike did run ok, according to last owner, apart from having flat battery, would not hold...


Double check that the battery is connected right including the smaller positive wire( can be burned off and the bike won't charge. With the battery fully charged and the chaging system unplugged ( plug has a battery wire ( red ) a black wire ( ground) and three either yellow wires either that or white all the same color and size. UNplug this plug. Remove a spark plug and put thew wire back on it and lay it on the head or other ground and see if it sparks as the bike is charked ( be careful as it might start on the other cyclinder) If it sparks add a small amount of fuel to the air inlet to see if it'll start with a little extra fuel if it starts and dies then your looking for a fuel problem. This bike has a fuel pump and in nuetral with the kickstand up you shoud hear it come on as the keys turned on. If not your back to checking fuses and even the kickstand sawitch. kill switch ON? Fuel in tank new enough.?

Car cranks then an hour later won't crank


Battery or starter. Sometimes the battery will have enough power to activate fuel pump and dash lights but not enough to turn starter.

2002 vtx1800c cranks but does not start.


hello and welcome
as i understand the vtx cranks but does not start. a good place i would start to look is the spark plugs. first you can verify that the plugs are not blackened over and wet. this would happen from fouling. with the vtx not turning over properly with the old weak battery alot of fuel was used in the cylinders and possibly fouled them out. ive seen that be a very popular problem. the other it to check for spark if the plugs appear to be fine. this can determine if something was faulted in the ignition.
