Question about 1987 Honda CBR 600 F Hurricane
I recently took my 83 honda cx650 on a lengthy interstate trip. Filled up during a break and got the bottom of the tank it seemed. It took 10 minutes for 3 gallons. When I got off the interstate my pipes were smoking and the bike was sputtering. They temp gauge was around halfway but hasnt worked since. I turned the bike off and didnt ride it for days. Then it started back up fine and is ridin normal. I did eventually siphon the gas. What do you think caused this to happen. Also since then it seems to idle at 2000 instead of 1500 once it warms up and also doesnt start up as quick. Its my first street bike please help.
The sputtering was a bit of water in the bad gas you got and the smoke was probably from a bit of diesel fuel that was put into a gasoline storage tank in error. The temp guage going bad is just one of those things that happen from time to time, probably just a bad sensor. The idle speed change is a bit quirky but easy to adjust. Stick a fresh set of plugs in the bike and the starting problem should clear up.
