Question about 1993 Honda CBR 600 F(2)P
It's summer in florida, probably 90 degrees outside every day, and my bike still needs a choke. Sometimes the bike gives me trouble starting, it takes 30 seconds here or there but never any longer. I installed an LED light kit last night so people could see me (I have a black bike) and rode it around to show my friends how it looked, so it ran fine last night. I go to ride it this morning, it gave me the same 30 seconds of trouble, then it started right up. I made it to the front of my neighborhood and it died completely. The starter ran and ran and nothing fired whatsoever. I tried for about 30 min (in 90 degree weather) and it fired maybe twice with plenty of choke and I even turned the idle up to 2500 rpms. But it still cut out before I could put it in gear. I let it sit for 10 min, came back, it fired up like nothing happened. I made it back to my apartment and it died again. This time sounded like there was no hope at all, and my starter sounded weak from all the use. I really don't have the money to take this thing in, can anybody help?
Well, depending on what your mechanical skills are, it may be tough to troubleshoot and fix your problem. I have the same exact bike, and it along with all other sport bikes are tough to work on because everything is very confined. You first have to start with the basics, Fuel, Spark, and Compression. Your going to have to get the fairings off and remove the gas tank before you test any of that. Once the tank is off, you can get access to the spark plugs and wires to do a spark test. Also while you are there, check to make sure the carb is getting sufficient fuel, or even possibly too much fuel. Leaky needle and seats in the carb bowls can cause lots of problems for starting and idling. And please don't blow yourself up! Exposed gas and spark test can equate to big flame balls if your not careful. If you need more help, I'd be willing to do what I can for you so shoot me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
