5th gear pinned usually will starve the engine for the fuel mix, meaning not enough oil, meaning you probably melted the piston, or destroyed the rings, and maybe the cylinder also. No two stroke is made to be held wide open foe any lenght of time, and if you are already running a little lean, this is what happens. Tear it down, and look, and mearure the ring gap if averything seems o.k.

its possible, however I would recheck the wires that you replaced and be sure that they are in the proper order, an improperly routed ignition wire can cause a lot of the things you have just discribed.

have you put a new set of plug wires on it. use a spark plug tester, and put it between plug wire and dist, cap. if it is sparking you will see it. if yes and not to plugs put on new plug wires. good-day ! if above checks out. remove dist, cap and see if shaft of dist, is turning. some of the hondas have a plastic type drive gear on bottom of dist, shaft. that goes bad.

1990 Honda Civic,Car wont start after its been running for awhile, then it starts after it cools down


You have a common problem; back in the early 90, the distribtors assemebly was causing alot of shut down problems for Hondas, the pickup assembly inside the distibutor would become hot and stop producing sparks/ engey to the sparks plugs. When cars came into the shop we would most of the time just replace the distributor assembly, but they can be kind of expensive thought, if you live near a salvage year it may be your best option for getting a good used one.

I hope this helps.

After riding 30 minutes only one cylinder works loss of power. after down shifting to first gear. stalls let it rest for 5 minutes. and it restarts fine

Loss of fuel or spark?
Carry an extra spark plug with you and ride until it messes up then place the extra plug in the rear plug wire and up against the engine to see if you have spark. If you still have spark then it is a fuel problem

Runs without plugwires on shuts off when you put it in gear

Your cycle runs when you pull off one spark plug wire per cylinder. There are two spark plugs per cylinder and you did not remove both . Therefore you still have one spark plug on each cylinder firing to run the machine. Your motorcycle is also equipped with a side stand safety switch. Your bike will run on the side stand . But, if you put the bike in gear with the side stand down it is designed to turn off the motor. This is so you do not drive away with the stand down and loose control of the motorcycle on your first left hand turn. Get in the habit of putting your side stand up before putting the bike in gear and your problem is solved. Read your owners manual.

check your distributor unit or as they call it on my honda 87cbr, a pulse generator. You can switch coils around (if they are exactly the same!).. see if problem is now opposite!...if it changed... well its new coil time. but my problem wasnt the coils which i was almost positive it was because i wasnt getting any spark to #1 or #4 ...i didnt check 2-3 but im sure it wasnt getting any spark either because the bike wouldnt even hint at starting. it cost me two hours of trouble shooting and $50 for the used part...starts right up now everytime...hopes this helps.
Can i get a rating too...thanks!
