1997 honda magna 750 after driving it starts cutting out and getting hot


Hi, Corey 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.
2. Faulty alternator/generator and or voltage regulator.
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.
4. Faulty main circuit breaker or ignition switch, check for loose connections and continuity.
5. Faulty system and or ignition relay, check for continuity.
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.
10. Fuel tank empty
11. Fuel tank contaminated with ethanol sludge.
12. Water or dirt in the fuel system, or clogged filter.
13. Restricted, blocked or kinked fuel line.
14. Faulty fuel pump.
15. Faulty pressure regulator.
16. Faulty or clogged fuel injectors.
17. Lean angle switch is faulty or needs adjustment.

2003 CHEVEY BLAZER POOR GAS MILAGE Just tuned up , new wires,plugs, pvc vavle,rotor ,cap.air filter ,fuel filter, seems to run great, no check engine light, 74000 miles, new tires, only getting approx 8...


What grade of fuel are you using? There are many conditions that effect gas mileage. The way a vehicle is driven, is it shifting correctly, flooring it to get up to speed from dead stop also known as Jack Rabbit starts, driving with the defroster on when it isn't needed or the setting just above that can be used. Back in the 90's most car manufacturers made a change to their heating.cooling system that caused the AC compressor to kick in when the selector was set to defrost. This puts drag on teh motor and decreases gas mileage. Build up on valves and low compression in the firing cylinders will cause you to lose gas mileage as well. Do a compression check on the motor to make sure you don't have abnormally high compression or low compression on cylinders and use a bottle of gas treatment in your fuel to clean some of the carbon build up from injectors and valves. Also start using the Mid grade fuel. Not the High Octane in your area. In Texas we typically have 3 choices 87, 89 and 93 to choose from. Low grade is enough to run the vehicle but performance is low as well as mileage. I use the 89 octane for better performance and better mileage. The High Octane or 93 isn't really good as it leads to higher carbon build up on the valves. Also check your oil often and make sure your changing it every 4000 miles at the longest. All of this along with making sure you change the Air Filter every 5000 miles will increase your mileage.

HI I've got T'birth 900 1997 and have big concern about fuel consumption. It does about 27mpg and I do think that this is way too much. How can I improve range of my bike???


Accurate gas mileage is difficult to determine due to the constant variations in driving conditions and styles. Even the conversion mathematics can cause what appears to be low gas mileage. With a motorcycle higher and lower mileages can be made due to wind direction and if the motorcycle has a windshield, single rider or two. Hera are a few points to check, adjust and consider for better gas mileage.
First the tires make sure they are at the proper air pressure the manufacture recommends.
The tires are of the correct size for the motorcycle, oversize tires will through off the odometer and cause a faults reading.
Another is that the speedometers/odometers on motorcycle are notoriously inaccurate, compounding the problem with gas mileage.
Make sure your drive line is in good order, I believe your motorcycle is chain driven so make sure it is properly lubricated and the sprockets are in good serviceable order.

Things to do mechanically to improve gas mileage.
Have the engine serviced at regular intervals. All lubrication's are not created equal, switch to a motorcycle grade of synthetics using a new oil filter at each change. Make sure the ignition and valve timing are within specifications and the valves are adjusted properly. With a multiple cylinder engine the carburetors must be balanced and the recommended grade of gas used. As mentioned above make sure the tires are in good serviceable condition, properly balanced, aligned and at the correct pressure.

Now for the rider.
If you are flogging this thing at every stop light, seeing red line every day, burping the throttle on down shifts, spending time sitting in city traffic or carving canyon switch backs and hair pins on and off the throttle then there is no way you are going to get good gas mileage.

Riding the motorcycle as you would normally. Every bike I've had, has had an odometer and or trip odometer, so you can see what your driving style is actually doing for gas mileage. fill the gas tank set the trip odometer to zero and then ride it 100 miles (give a couple miles either way) then fill it again to the same level. I generally fill so the gas level is just at the bottom of the neck. Then write it down the cost and gallons (liters) the trip mileage and the odometer mileage. Do this for five 100 mile fill ups then take you gas mileage from that.

The next test.
Do the same test above but alter you driving habits, ride the motorcycle conservatively, no red line, no burping the throttle on down shifts, limit your time in traffic by leaving earlier or later to get around the traffic congestion. Keep your speed down to the limit or a touch over, limit the weight of the gear or two up riding. Do this and you will see a huge difference in you gas mileage and when I say huge I'd say taking your 27mpg and stuffing that up to 50/55mpg.

I'm in Canada so our five gallons is the US six gallon so this comparison will be off but the difference between the numbers will be seen.
My GL 1000 Goldwing average 40mpg in the city only 47mpg on the highway.
My GL 1500 Goldwing average 42mpg city and 58mpg on the highway with two up and 50 pounds of gear
My 750 Magna average 42mpg city and 55mpg on the highway single rider light on gear
Previous to the Honda's my 650, 750 and the "new" Bonneville all gave me 38mpg city and averaged 48 to 50mpg highway.
Hey I've written a small novel here but I think you can see that gas mileage and motorcycle has a lot to do with riding style.

2008 RSTD. Supposedly 6gallon tank only gets 130 miles range. Dealer says its designed to only be able to use 4 gallons. What's up with that?


According to the Royal Star Spec Sheet,
It has 5.3 gallon tank and the "estimated" mileage is listed at 42 mpg. So let's be realistic and figure 35 mpg is more inline with reality... and if you're using 4 gallons it would be 135 miles , if you're using 5 it would be 175 miles. You'd want to have some reserve left so figure 4 gallons usable (before you need to fill it again). So the dealer's 4 gallon figure is in the ballpark. The 130 miles per tank, could be improved with how it's driven... but the mileage figures they publish.... I don't know of anyone who can achieve them... Hope this helps with your question. Have fun on that thing!

I just tune up my car and know i am getting bad gas miles


The only way you can determine your gas mileage is by filling the tank then driving it down, filling it up again and dividing miles driven by gallons burned. You can't determine gas mileage by how fast the gage goes down. You may have made a mistake in your tune-up and got a couple of wires crossed. Someone may be staeling your gas.
