Question about 2000 Honda VTR 1000 F Firestorm

1 Answer

I took my gas tank off of my 2000 Honda VTR Superhawk. I moved the switch on the petcock to let gas come out off the tank. Nothing came out so I took the petcock off so gas can drain out of the tank. When I put the petcock on what position should the petcock be in for the bike to run? My bike is the Superhawk not the Firestorm although they are the same bike. Thanks. Randy.

To run the petcock should be in the down position. There are many different designs in petcocks but by and large they all work the same. Push the lever to the down, vertical position to turn the fuel supply on. To the right of left is the off and up is off. It should be written on the petcock exactly how your works. This is a typical petcock. If you turned it to the on position and no fuel was flowing it may be clogged. I took my gas tank off of my 2000 Honda VTR - 46a3fab.png

2000 Honda VTR 1000 F Firestorm won't start


Hi, Anonymous and the usual suspects are:
1. Fuel tank empty.
2. The fuel tank has old dead gas.
3. Fuel tank bottom contaminated with ethanol sludge, dirt, water, rust, etc.
4. Fuel supply valve/petcock turned off.
5. Fouled spark plugs.
6. Engine flooded as a result of overuse of the enrichner.
7. Vacuum hose to the fuel supply valve/petcock disconnected, broken, cracked, or pinched.
8. Fuel valve/petcock or filter clogged.
9. Fuel line to carburetor or throttle body pinched, kinked or blocked.
10. Carburetor float stuck.
11. Fuel injectors clogged.
12. Fuel injectors stuck open.
13. 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 cursory 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.
14. 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.
15. Loose or corroded wire connection at the coil or plug between ignition sensor and ECM module.
16. Spark plug cables in bad condition and shorting check for spark leakage in the dark, cable connections loose, or connected to the wrong cylinders.
17. Ignition timing incorrect due to a faulty ignition coil, ignition module or MAP, CMP, CKP, O2, TPS, ETP, IAC sensors.
18. Faulty neutral, clutch, kickstand safety switch.
19. Faulty fuel pump or fuse or relay.
20. A stuck bent or burnt valve.
21. Tilt sensor needs a reset.
22. Security system not disarming alarm needs a reset.
23. Check for engine trouble codes.
