Question about 2003 Honda CB 600 Hornet F

1 Answer

I have a 2003 VTX 1800. About two weeks ago, all power went out. I'm told by the dealer that it's the voltage regulator. However my question is. Can I by the instrument to connect to the ECU service check connector to find problems myself? Is that too expensive?

Purchasing the tester and required adaptor for your bike is not an economically feasible way to go - especially if you're going to use it just one time. The replacement voltage regulator is expensive enough.
What I would do is let the dealer replace whatever part of the electrical system they deem necessary to correct the problem. That way, if they are wrong in their diagnosis, it's on them - and you aren't eating any un-needed electrical parts.

Fuel injection..Hard to start will not idle and pouring gas out the exhaust.2003 vtx


if this is a vtx 1800 then you need to look at the fuel pressure regulator, this is faulty and sending fuel up the vacuum hose, they are around £40 to buy and about an hour to fit. they play up any time from 6000miles,even know to one 2000 miles but was changed on warranty.

Headlight not working ,checked fuse,changed bulb,checked for voltage


If you did these things what are the results, a new bulb and good voltage would end in a bulb that works. If positive power to run the bulb is there a groung to the bulb is also needed.

2003 Honda VTX 1800 will not turn over.


Hi, Tldanie before testing any electrical component in the Starting Circuit it is "IMPERATIVE" that you have a fully charged battery of 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 type batteries fall into this scenario more so than lead-acid batteries.
1. Ignition Switch not in the "ON" position.
2. Engine Run Switch in the "OFF" position.
3. Engine Run Switch is "FAULTY" or corroded.
4. Check the 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.
5. Bank angle sensor needs a reset or is faulty.
6. FOB battery low or dead.
7. Faulty ignition switch.
8. Faulty starter button.
9. Faulty kickstand, clutch, neutral safety switch.
10. Security alarm needs a reset.
11. Starter relay, solenoid, starter motor or circuit wiring faulty.
12. Starter armature or field coils have failed.
13. Main fuse or circuit breaker may be blown or faulty.
14. Faulty ignition relay.
15. The electric starter is working but starter clutch has failed.
16. Check for engine trouble codes.

Electrical ... check points. You jmight want to run some carb cleaner through it ... change the plugs. Id look at the points or what ever turns the coil on and off, real close.

The wires going to the voltage regulator keep burning up.


Common problem with poor quality parts, the regulator is the problem, the generator is working other wise you would not have fried the wiring, you answered your own question. someone telling porkies to get more money from unsuspecting client?
The regulator controls the voltage not the generator, the generator only supplys the voltage it cannot overcharge unless the regulator is not working properly, simple!
