Question about 1984 Honda VF 1100 Sabre

1 Answer

I have 2 v65 sabers (84&85) that are missing. The coils, and wires plugs ect. pass dynamic tests. The Pulse generator passes the ohm test (manual states 480 ohms at 68 deg) my reading is 560 ohms at 78 degrees temp. Looking at the fuel filter it appears the fuel is flowing ( I can shut off the fuel and see the level drop) Both of the bikes misses begin very suddenly which is why I think it is electrical rather than fuel. I was riding for about 15 miles when the bike stalled. It restarted missing but I was able to return home. Both bikes will remain running but with the miss. .Looking a each plug fire they are a orange color.

1984 Honda VF 1100 C no spark


Hi, Anonymous and the usual suspects are:
1. Fouled spark plugs.
2. 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.
11. Security alarm failing to disarm needs reset

No spark on 750 honda saber


In no particular order: Check kill-switch on handlebar cluster. Check fuses. Check for loose or corroded wiring harness plugs. Check for bad pulse generator(s). Check for water in spark boxes and proper orientation.

Power comes from the fuse box to the handlebar cluster kill-switch. Check for power at the switch and after the switch with a test light or meter. If switch won't pass voltage, disassemble and clean then lubricate with silicone grease and reassemble.

Check each fuse with a meter. Remove the fuse, don't just measure it in-place. Glass (tubular) fuses can look good but still be blown. Test each one with an Ohm-meter out of the fuse panel. Same goes for newer blade fuses - pull them out and test. Fuse panel itself for blade fuses can be bad. These corrode and fatigue, cracking as base of spring contacts. Must fix fuse panel if bad as no new ones are available.

Remove seat, side-covers & tank then unplug, clean, and reconnect all multi-terminal wires going to/from steering head and coils/spark boxes. Double-check fast-on terminals at coil contacts. Double-check main ground connection to frame (under coil bracket).

Pulse generators inside right crankcase cover can fail and not send position pulses to spark boxes - pretty unlikely though. Check for continuity on each. Should show some resistance - not open. 2 pairs of wires - one pair to each pickup coil.

The spark boxes may be located either on rear fender liner under seat or one here and second one in a pocket on top of the tool-box depending on year. Spark boxes should be mounted with drain hole down and care should be used not to get water in them while washing (why would you wash a Sabre anyway?) Corrosion inside spark boxes is common on these. Some can be repaired but no new ones are available and haven't been for several years.

Where is the generator on a yard machine lawn


no generator or alternator power generated by magnetic pulse[magneto]on the top of motor the fly wheel has magnetic inserts that pass thru a armature/coil causing a pulse sometimes the flywheel gets surface rust but that would also affect spark --check connections and test battery battery may not be holding charge or loose or corrosion in wiring can cause battery problem

My 1969 chevelle's gas gauge is stuck pass full.bad gauge or sending unit? how to tell?


According to what I read, test the gauge first. Hook power to where the white wire attaches. Hook a ground to the black wire connector. The gauge should rise to full. (May take a while). When on full, the tan wire connector to same ground. It should go to empty. If both work, gauge is good. To test sender, in the empty position, your ohm meter should read 0-2. 1/2 tank should read about 40, and full should read 84-88 ohms.

Thanks for all the previous suggestions, it seems my 84 cbx750 has a intermittant,very poor spark on all 4. i have changed plugs and checked leads, still not starting....


Hi and welcome to FixYa,

Initially, a couple of checks when starting:
  • verify consistent + 12 on the black/white wires on the ignition coils and spark unit;
  • high pulsating ACV on the yellow and blue wires to the ignition coils from the spark unit;
  • low pulsating ACV (0.5 VAC) on the yellow & white pair and the blue & white pair to the spark unit from the pulse generator.
Postback results of tests.

Good luck and thank you for asking FixYa.
