Question about 1997 Honda XR 600 R

1 Answer

I have a newly acquired 96 Honda XR600 that will not run with the choke open all the way. In the vertical and aprox. 45 degree angle the bike runs well but will not run at all with the choke level horizontal. Should i worry? Thanks for your time.

Try making the idol higher.
also if the bike will move with choke open/half way ride it and slowly close the choke as your moving.
this isnt something to worry about to much just that you will burn more fuel because of this. it is something to you will want to fix but it will not ruin the bike

good luck

The dwell angles for a 1991 Ford Econovan LWBS 2000cc petrol motor running on 96 RON Petrol Engine in good condition?


this engine should have an electronic ignition in which case there is no dwell angle
dwell angle was the degrees between the points opening and closing to give maximum saturation for the coil field
as it should be ab EFI engine then ECM makes the adjustment necessary for the correct setting for the fuel in use
as it is a low compression engine , the fuel octane rating that is best suited for it is 91
it will run well on 96 but the advantage gained is outweighed by the cost

How do i get my calculator to do the trig problem Tan45=1? It is telling me Tan45=1.61977, and i know that isn't right.


Angles may be measured in three angles:degree, radian and gradians (grads).
tan(45 deg)=1
tan(45 radians)=1.61977
If your problems require angles to be measured in degrees, make sure that the calculator's angle unit is set to degrees.
In RUN screen press [SHIFT][MENU] (SetUp) select the angle line and press function key under the tab Deg (should be F1).

My honda vtx 1300 will not run with choke all the way in but will run with the choke half way in. what is the problem?


If your bike will only run with the choke half way out it's starving for feul. You have a clogged jet. By choking the bike you cut off the air and allow more feul to run through the carb.

Hi, Epperson2420 and the usual suspects are:
1. Fuel cap or fuel tank is not venting properly.
2. Fuel filter clogged.
3. Fuel line pinched or kinked.
4. Vacuum line from the petcock to intake manifold cracked.
5. Float needle and seat sticking.
6. Float level too low.
7. Carburetor bowl vent line clogged/blocked/pinched.
8. Idle adjusting screw set too low.

Hi i just got a 1990 xr600 ! it starts 1st kick when cold but even after just 10 mins of riding she is red hot and is immpossible to start ! why or what causes this ?


Too lean!

Carburation is more than likely set too lean, or like one of my buys, had a cracked inlet manifold..letting in air.

The site below shows the carby in all it's glory with every part and name. The list of jets size# are for the range of riding conditions for that bike. Get jets at least one increment UP in size. They're available from all bike make dealers.

Exhaust, cam or valve timing/modifications will efect jetting to some degree, as will the need of a top end service.

Cheers.

Starting problems


Check the compression. If it has low compression it will always be difficult to start. I have the same bike. It is a really good starter, comparatively to other older 'cycles I own. 1) Check the fuel level in the tank, and be sure to turn the fuel switch (left side of bike below tank and seat) to On, or even Reserve 2) In stock tuning, my bike likes full choke for cold start, in any ambient temperature, it likes to warm up with the choke on, until it starts to sputter from the rich mixture. 3) I believe this bike has vacuume tube that goes to the fuel petcock, this shuts off fuel to carbs when bike is not running. Thus if the bike has not run in a while, or the carbs drained, it will take several start attempts to get the carb float bowls filled. 4) This bike is hard to start if the battery is old or marginally charged. 5) Also pull the spark plugs, if they are brown, or black, change them. 6) check the air cleaner, if it is too dirty it will essentially act like a choke
