Question about 1993 Honda CBR 600 F(2)P

1 Answer

93 CBR decided not to run today

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 jmegashiftstyle@aol.com.

Only runs on choke


it's sound like it need ajustement on carburator because choke only make the mixture air/gas more rich.
Or if it's very cold outside sometimes you have to wait long before out it in normal position. That do to the density of air ... if the adjusment have been made in 25C in summer and now is -15c outside the air is more dense so the motor need a mix more rich.

Hi, Michael and the usual suspects are:
1. Fuel cap or fuel tank is not venting properly.
2. Fuel filter clogged.
3. Fuel line pinched or kinked.
4. Vacuum line from the petcock to intake manifold cracked.
5. Float needle and seat sticking.
6. Float level too low.
7. Carburetor bowl vent line clogged/blocked/pinched.
8. Idle adjusting screw set too low.
9. Air/fuel mixture screw set too lean.
10. Idle port, transfer ports, slow air jet clogged.
11. Slow fuel jet clogged.
12. Faulty fuel pump.

Hi, I bought a brand new Keeway Outlook 125 jusy 5 weeks ago. Since I bought i had problems when starting it so they put in a new carburator that had a new automatic choke on it. I still have problems...


Is it normal that a new bike dies on you as you drive it? No way my friend. The carburetor should have a thermal-choke and it probably needs some adjustment.

What is the normal engine temperature of the 929 when hot


My bike runs exactly 100 degrees more than outside temp, when running, in city traffic it heats up fast. The temp will go over 210, the fans kick on at about 211. They have only come on 3 times in 10 years. So, I would assume your bike is close to the same. 900 water cooled.

My cbr 600 f2 1993 had been sitting for a long time


Sounds like the carbs were not properly cleaned or set up. Choke should cause the cold start rpms to be higher than what you are experiencing. Application of choke to a warmed up engine will usually cause the engine to stall.

just a common thing in cold weather, sometimes you have to ride about 5 miles with choke half out, till the engine warms up. try draining your carbys or cleaning them out, sounds like ti could be running abit lean and not getting enough fuel

SEEMS LIKE CAR IS SLUGGISH AND LOOSING POWER WHEN TEMP IS HOT.


id maybe try going back to 87 octane gas cause 93 may make it run better but it will run hotter too and that can cause premature detonation and spark knock

Honda CBR 125 R5 - Starting problems


I had the same problem with my 07 cbr but i found out that it wasn't the starter relay, the battery was just dead and i tried to recharge it but it was still dead, so it needed replaced with a new one. once this was done the bike started fine and the buzzing had stopped, so you should give that a go!

Cbr 125 choke problem


It sounds like the choke line may not have been routed correctly when the new one was installed. Remove the gas tank and check to see that the line is not being stretched anywhere along the way AND that the gas tank when re-installed is not stretching the line. The line may have been kinked when installed. Look at the mechanical movement of the choke at the carb. Does it operate freely? Remove the air filter and look inside the center of the carb, (you may need to use a small mirror for this), does it look like the choke is opening and closing properly when the choke is moved on and off?
