Question about 2005 Honda CBR 125 R

1 Answer

2005 Honda CBR 125 R main relay is buzzing

My main relay is buzzing and the rev counter is all over the place the indicators flash too fast and when it is revved the lights dim off then brighten when the revs are brought down the starter won't work basically I think it has to be the main relay and no fuses are blown. this all happened when a fault developed on the starter motor and shorted but did not blow any fuses. I hope you can help. Steven Murphy

Hi, Steven before testing any electrical component in the Starter System 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.
A motorcycle starter relay is an electronic mechanical switch that has a small coil winding around a piece of metal that requires low amperage and thin wires to be activated. When you turn on your ignition switch power 12 volts is sent to the relay coil which in turn becomes a magnetic contact point that pulls a spring-loaded contact point to itself completing an electrical circuit that allows more amperage necessary to be accessed by the starter solenoid which in turn acts in the same way as the relay but on a larger scale with its stronger heavier contacts making available the necessary amperage to turn the starter motor. If your battery has low voltage it, in turn, makes the magnetic contact point weak in trying to pull its counterpart to make a connection. These relays are usually encased in a plastic housing that may or may not be sealed depending on the quality of the product. When activated they will produce a small amount of heat to their metal components which in turn can create the perfect environment for condensation to form depending on weather conditions and how careless you may be with a water hose or sprayer while washing your bike. After a period of time, several months to several years depending on the circumstances this condensation is the starter button for electrolysis and the slow build up of corrosion which ends by preventing the magnetic contacts in making a solid connection and alerts you to this situation with the customary greeting "CLICK or BUZZ". The relay is inexpensive and needs to be replaced however in a pinch they can be forcibly opened cleaned and resealed with silicone. In a nutshell, motorcycle starter relays take in low amperage and send out higher amperage when activated and for curious minds, the voltage remains constant at whatever your battery reads at the time.

I had the same problem with my 636. It turned out to be just a cable problem. Try to see if all the electric cables work correctly and connected.

Good Luck,

Sounds like you have a ground fault. I once had a car with a faulty ground wire on the headlight, when I put high beam on the speedo would jump to 170km/h and the indicators would glow dimly. Sure sounds like a similar ground fault to me, check all the ground straps, from the headlight or anywhere else you can think of.

SOURCE: rev counter not working

If it is not a fuse in the fuse box then check the harness that is connected to the counters.The rev counter has 3 wires on the back.One ground and two others.Check them both against the ground to see if there is voltage.

Honda CBR 125 R5 - Starting problems


I had the same problem with my 07 cbr but i found out that it wasn't the starter relay, the battery was just dead and i tried to recharge it but it was still dead, so it needed replaced with a new one. once this was done the bike started fine and the buzzing had stopped, so you should give that a go!
