Question about 1997 Honda CBR 600 F(3)V
1998 cbr600 f3. I ran out of fuel on the main tank and then switched to reserve. No response and rolled to a stop. Tried cranking engine, no start. I put more fuel in the tank and tried starting. It started but runs very rough and fuel pours out from a breather hose at bottom of the bike. This breather hose appears to be connected to the direct air intake plumbing near air vent solenoid valve. Any ideas as to the problem? @
Hi, Markmorri89 if you have an old bike that has not had regular fuel system maintenance and you run the fuel tank dry I feel your pain. All the contaminants water-dirt-rust-liner paint flakes-ethanol sludge etc. that lived in the bottom of your fuel tank get mixed with the last few oz. of fuel left in the tank and enter the fuel system clogging up fuel filters-fuel valves-fuel lines-carburetor jets-needle jets and seats-fuel injectors etc. You fill up your fuel tank and guess what your bike does not start or if it does it runs poorly, a complete cleaning of the fuel system is mandatory, the procedure is as follows:
1. Drain the fuel tank and inspect the inside for leftover uninvited guests decontaminate as necessary for rusty environments install a liquid fuel tank liner.
2. In tank fuel pumps with external filters need to be cleaned.
3. Fuel valves need to be rebuilt with a new gasket kit.
4. Fuel lines need to be inspected for integrity and replaced as necessary any inline fuel filter should be cleaned or replaced.
5. Carburetors need to be disassembled then "DIPPED" and soaked in a commercial carb cleaning solution Gunk sells 1/2 gallon pails with meshed screen baskets. Reassemble using new rebuild kits. Record all jet sizes and float level for fine-tuning.
6. Fuel injectors and fuel rails need to be properly cleaned and tested for optimum performance, if necessary send off any suspect injectors to "InjectorRx.com" for a modest fee they will refurbish the unit back to factory specs.

place a volt meter at light socket to see if you are getting 12 volts. check same at fuse. if both have no power, switch may be faulty, im assuming the lights come on when igntion turned on, so look there.

Does it work at all? What my issue on a 97 CBR F3 was is that when I bought it the speedo would act as a tach and when revving it would show that the bike was going up in speed sitting still...all it needed was a ground wire ran to the back of the cluster.
