Question about 1989 Honda CB 1
Hi mate, ive got the same bike , and also the same problem, how ever ive took mine to a local bike magician, he's worked on bike for 40+years, he recons its becuase of the evolution of fuel since these bikes where made, so becuase of the amount of ethanol in fuel these days it dont last that long, so what you need todo is get your carbs (completely) striped down and cleaned in a ultra sonic cleaner? thats what this guy is doing for me! at a cost? but the fuel these days evaporate's easly so to that end leaves a nasty glass'y film on things in the carbs,and clogs it up, so when your carbs have been cleaned and you want to use your bike all the time and keep your fuel fresh or when not in use for a wile run the bike , turn the fuel off and let it run dry, but add ( fuel proservative ) to keep the fuel tidy! . if you find any other reason why give us a shout, gavin_L_williams@hotmail.com hope this helps. gav

Try to disconnect the battery terminals as well as the starter terminals .
refit them and make sure all are tight . All loose connections will not help and will cause false contacts and therefore loss of power to crank the starter motor over .
