If your rpms are going up to 7000 but your not moving your clutch is probally about to go out. Just make sure your clutch cable is not binding or stuck.

My 1988 Honda cbr 1000f keeps backfireing every time i try to start it and wont start


how old is the fuel in the tank ? fuel goes off after 5months !! or it dould be contaminated with water or dirt etc , recomend cleaning the tank and removing the carbs and stripping and cleaning the jets etc !!
has the bike been unused for a long time ?
check that all spark plugs are sparking and check the compressions of each piston ! 100 psi or more is correct for each one , if less then the rings or the valves need investigating !
if you have any more information it will help me !
thanks Paul ...

How many times does a transmission supposed to shift starting from drive in a 1988 dodge ram with a 318 motor


Depends if you have a regular 3 speed automatic, or a 3 speed with overdrive.
Put it in drive, it will start out in first gear, then shift into second at about 15 MPH, into third at about 30-35 MPH. With overdrive, fourth gear will kick in at about 45-55MPH.

My 95 cbr 600 f3 pops out of 2nd gear into neutral around 5000 rpm


sounds like a bent shifter fork. Happens quite often if you like to wheelie (I know, I'm on my 3rd tranny). If you are gentle in second, it will not get worse while you are waiting to fix it.

How many rpms should i go on my honda cbr 600


hi,i dont know a lot about this particular bike,but,as with any high revving sports bike you will need to keep the revs up before changing gear,an 883 sportster has a lot more torque than your bike and you can "short shift "them and let the torque do the work,however on a cbr i think you will need more rpm before you shift as they dont have the torque of your old harley,a friend of mine has an r6 yamaha,that thing revs out to nearly 17000 rpm he doesnt change untill about 9 or 10000 rpm,from memory your bike should be capable of nearly 60mph in first gear..hope this helps...cheers

I have a CBR 1000F 1993 it charges fine when


I had the same thing happen to my CBR1100XX..

Could be both the stator/alternator or the regulator/rectifier. I'd try replacing the cheapest unit (regulator/rectifier) first. Check if the insulation on the wires going to the regulator/rectifier look burned.

FYI most Hondas are prone to charging problems.

2008 HONDA cbr 125 Popping out of 5th Gear


Only three things would cause the problem. 1) a slightly beny shift fork, 2) a shift index wheel loose, 3) the foot shift lever needs to be adjusted.

The most likely source is the shift lever needing to be lower. Once you are in 5th gear you move your foot to the top iof the pedal in preparation for a downshift. At high speed your entire body is leaning forward FOOT INCLUDED. Chances are that enough pressure is on the pedal to move the slider gear out of position and thus out of 5th gear.

I hope I am right in the solution. Best wishes.
