1996 Honda RVF 400 NC35 misfires

RVF 400 NC35, cough's and splutters 5000-7000rpm i have recently purchased a nc35 first registered in 2001, done less than 5000km goes really well but the last couple of weeks bike seems to be choking between 5000-7000rpm then runs fine from there on, it first started when it was cold but now does it all the time.the bike was serviced when I bought it a month ago from a dealer (importer) and has no noises and is really smooth, the engine has plenty of retardation when throttling off and seems fine apart from this problem. If you slowly throttle through the rev range its fine but if you open the throttle than the problem occurs. any help would be great as I live in a small country town and the nearest service center is 450km's away. I would take it to the dealer but they are in Melbourne which is around 2000km from where I am and hoping that it might be something simple otherwise it will take about a month to get it there and back as its still under warranty. @

Hi, Waynecollins and the usual suspects are:
1. 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.
2. 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.
3. Spark plugs in bad condition or partially fouled.
4. Spark plug cables in bad condition and leaking check for spark leakage in the dark
5. Spark plug gap too close or too wide.
6. Faulty ignition coil, module, and or sensor.
7. Loose, dirty, or corroded ignition module connector at crankcase.
8. Faulty CKP or CMP, MAP, ETS, ATS, TPS, O2 sensor.
9. Dirty air filter.
10. Intake air leak.
11. Water, dirt, or rust in the fuel system.
12. Carburetor contaminated, sticky float, plugged jets.
13. Carburetor has oil in the bowl due to excessive oil in pre-mix.
14. Carburetor vacuum diaphragm torn, cracked, not seated or installed improperly.
15. Multiple carburetors out of sync.
16. Fuel filter clogged.
17. Old or contaminated fuel.
18. Fuel tank vent system plugged or carb vent line closed off.
19. Gas cap diaphragm valve faulty.
20. Vacuum line from intake manifold to fuel valve is broken, cracked, pinched, or missing.
21. Carburetor controls misadjusted.
22. Incorrect valve timing.
23. Valve springs floating, weak, or broken.
24. Damaged intake or exhaust valve.
25. Incompatible performance parts.
26. Control module may be in "LIMP" mode
27. Check for engine trouble codes.

SOURCE: 1984 aspencade starts w/choke and revs up, runs smooth. Take off

My 'wing won't run unless it has been warmed up some. I would suggest that you r&r your carbs to make sure the jets in the bottom are working correctly. They tend to get plugged up, especially after sitting & the aluminum flaking off inside... Rick

SOURCE: bike coughs,splutters and even backfires more so in low rev's

Either take the carbs off and clean them or add some fuel additive to clean the system. Sounds like you have a clogged jet.

1996 Honda RVF 400 NC35 service manual


Hi, Anonymous the vast majority of service, parts fiche, and owners manuals on the internet are "FREE" to download and all service manuals contain wiring diagrams in the back pages. The rest usually charge a modest fee around $10 and there is a handful of obscure, rare, obsolete, and very old models that are no longer or never were available, for these rare occasions I shall look on eBay and find the cheapest one available. Most of the manuals will cover your exact make, model, and year otherwise one will be provided that comes as close as possible to your bike and will have most of the same info that an exact manual would have. If there is no $ sign after the manual link it is free to download for viewing or printing. To download your manual please click on the blue links below. Good luck and have a wonderful day

1996 Honda RVF 400 NC35 how to change the fork seals @


This type of R/R is what I call a straight monkey see...monkey do repair. Undo the drain screw on each fork and drain oil. The bike must be high enough off the ground to slide the sliders off unimpeded. From there let pressure off via the schrader valves on the forks, if so equipped. Remove wheel and unbolt anything attached to sliders because these must be taken to the bench. At the bottom of each slider, remove bolt and slide the slider off fork tube. Take slider to bench and remove internal snap ring and carefully pry the old seals out without damaging anything. Grease the new seals and carefully tap seal into slider evenly. A deep well socket can be used to tap it all the way in. From there it's reverse procedure. Add fork oil to specs.

Can a 1995 Honda VFR 400 NC35 engine fit in a VFR400 NC30 frame


Hi, Weslee21 parts swapping is common with most motorcycles when it comes to interchangeable or compatible parts from one model with another except for CDI's they are year-make-model specific the best thing to do is call your local Dealership Parts Department or a reputable independent shop. If your location is not near a shop then go online and find a parts catalog or "FICHE" and match part numbers depending on your criteria.
