    Would that also be true about maybe a stuck injector or do you think I could have blown some kind of seal or something from starting the bike with out the tank being able to vent?

  • donaldbengli Jul 22, 2009

    Yeah fuel pump is electric. I rode it a little bit(10 miles or so) before realizing the tank wasn't venting. I thought it was just kind of running poorly from sitting so long. So then I took it to a mechanic and he was the one who told me the vent tube coming out of the bottom of the tank was sealed up. So he drilled a vent hole in top of tank under gas cap to allow it to vent. He said he changed oil and oil filter and drained all my fuel and said it was working fine. When I got the bike home I started noticing the fuel mileage was horrible and then saw the oil sight glass was full even with bike on kickstand so when I opened the oil cap gas came pouring out alot. What would u recommend me doing first. I really appreciate all your time and help.

It's probably leaking from the carb and down the cylinder into the crankcase.
it is probably due to a stuck float in the carb. take the float bowl off and make sure it is clean. the float can also be full of gas not letting it float up and stop the gas flow. the carb will fill up and leak wherever it can which is likely the case

    I did some looking and that bike does have injectors, Did you spend alot of time cranking the bike trying to start it.
    If so you may have put a bunch of unburnt gas in the cylinder and it ran down into the case.
    It's not to common i wouldn;t think unless something is hooked up wrong and causing an over injection or something of that sort.
    it is also possible that the injectors are stuck and not shutting off the fuel. does the bike have an electric fuel pump?

    drain the oil and fill with clean oil.
    then remove the injectors an visually check them see if anything is obvious.
    maybe clean the injector end with injector cleaner.
    I think you have a problem with the injection system. is there a fuel regulator? maybe that would need to be checked or replaced if it's bad.
    other than that not to sure.
    But you need to get the gas out of the crank case. ASAP it will jack the seals up

Hi, Alain 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.

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.

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.

2002 Honda CBR 600 F(4)I what does the f1 light mean


Hi, Stevebrown10 it should be noted that the reasons your FI light stays on constantly or flashes and your bike will or will not start and may turn over or not, these conditions will vary from bike to bike depending on the year, make, and model and you should always refer to your owners/service manual for proper diagnostic procedures. It should also be noted that any type of prior work done to the bike or an abnormal event occurrence IE: adding accessories, electrical curiosity/adventures, laying the bike down/crashes, rain storms/bike washings just before FI light issues started can be significant hints/aids into tracking down the gremlin. The newer the bike the more sensitive the ECM becomes and will not let the bike start when aftermarket accessories have been installed without being reprogrammed. That being said the usual suspects are:
1. Faulty Fuel Pump, fuse or system relay switch.
2. Battery starting to fail due to old age/damage, perform a load test.
3. A discharged battery, 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. Faulty safety switches/sensors: run/off, ignition, clutch lever, neutral, side stand, tip over, fuel, and or their connections.
5. Broken wire or worn insulation exposing wire to a ground situation especially inside wire harness at tight bends around fairing brackets, under dash panels, under fuel tanks over cylinder heads etc. Many harnesses are open on the ends that will allow water to enter and accumulate at v-bends.
Dielectric grease and contact cleaner are your best friends for wire/cable/harness connectors, look for corroded, broken, or loose pins/sockets.
6. Installation of aftermarket accessories ie. exhaust systems, mufflers, air cleaners, fuel tuners, electrical component etc.
