Question about 1992 Honda CB 250 Nighthawk

1 Answer

92 Cb250 Nighthawk won't start

Battery good, new plugs, tested everything. No spark when testing the plugs. Don't know if it is the coils or the where they connect and the rectifier module to go to the battery. I check all fuses. Thanks

Check the side stand kill switch. It kills the engine so that you don’t start out with the side stand down. If broken or out of adjustment, it would kill the spark. Check for a broken wire at the side stand switch and coupler. Try moving the kill switch by hand. If that doesn’t work then wire a jumper around the switch to bypass it. Check the fuses. Is the handlebar kill switch on? Check the operation of the ignition switch and all kill switches with a volt ohmmeter.

A “very helpful” rating for this answer? Thanks!

92 nighthawk no power to anything but headlamp


Hey David,
First thing... HAve your battery checked.. O'Reilly's or AutoZone can test the CCA (Cold Cranking Amps) of your battery.. amperage is what starts your bike... voltage only will not help..once you KNOW the battery is good, its time to start...checking fuses and wiring connections...

Check to make sure you don't have a blown fuse/relay. Something is telling the coil not to fire. (Is the replacement coil new or used?) check your ground connections starting at the battery.

1. Fouled spark plugs.

Severely discharged or a damaged battery should 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.
3. Check battery terminals for damage or corrosion, check the battery cables at "BOTH" ends for loose, corroded, or broken connectors, "INSIDE" and outside the cable harness, perform connector wiggle test and check cables with an ohmmeter if necessary.
4. Loose connection at ignition coil or plug between ignition sensor and module.
5. Spark plug cables in bad condition, shorting/leaking, spark plug cable connections loose check for spark leakage in the dark.
6. Faulty ignition coil or electronic control module.
7. Faulty pulse coil.
8. Faulty CKP, CMP, or BAS sensor.
9. Faulty ignition switch.
10. Tilt sensor needs a reset.

You are describing a bad ignition switch. These fail in such a way that the voltage to the ignition fails while in the crank position.

I have a 1992 Honda Nighthawk cb250, with only 800miles on it. Been ridding around the last two weeks and this happened while I was out: I was letting off 1st and it reacted like I stalled. I went to start...


This motorcycle is very reliable and troble free and the ingtion module seldom if ever fails. The kick stand switch will not let the motor run in gear with the stand down. The switch can fail or get unplugged or dirty, The buke will run if the bike is in neutral with the stand down but the neutral light has to work. If the battery is low or bad 10 volts ( it'll crank but it don't start) the lights might look Ok too. Unless you remove the plug wire from the plug and place it connected to a spark plug or spark tester and see it frie or not fire your not a good test. The plug could be foulded with gas the cylinder can have lost compression( overheating) lack of oil. The ingtion module should hav some dielcctric compuund in it to dis a pate heat. this is normal, the coil is more likly and does fail the the module. Modules fail from bad batteries and jump starting wrong to hooking the battery up backwards. The coil fails from overheating and high mileage. Freezing and cracking in cold storage and may work awhile afer broken. Your bike is old even though the mileage is low. Electrical connections fail as they rust and reconning them all is agood place to start. You dont have to know what the wiring connector does just unplug it and replugf it to get a new connection. The battery cable on the ground side is well known to fail and following the wire to all the places it bolts on and unbolting and replugging or bolting all of these and cleaning any rust found way repair the bike completely/ You say thats a lot of work . Most bikes that have sit for more than a year have this done just to get them to run and a new battery is key as are it's connections. Skipping staps to get to thend quickly it's the step you skipped that might leave you a long way from home or not let you go in the first place.
