Question about 1998 Honda F6 C Valkyrie

1 Answer

2000 Honda Valkyrie, recently changed the radiator coolant, now it appears the radiator fan isn't coming on...power to sending unit is fine, fuse is fine, can't find power wire to fan motor, probably have to take the tank off. Temp light does work when ign. turned on, haven't seen it while running.

Hi R_hughes, for this situation I would call my local dealer or reputable shop's service/parts department and inquire about any possible quick fix or parts inquiry. If necessary transport your vehicle to the dealer or shop and have a professional technician take it for a test drive, if it is in running condition, and give you a written estimate of repairs and answer any specific questions you may have about your issue. Good luck and have a nice day. 1998 Honda Motorcycle Service Repair Workshop Manuals

Check vacuum line from #6 intake runner (port side rear cylinder) to the fuel petcock valve. The valve is vacuum operated for safety. It cuts off fuel to the carbs when the engine is shutdown. Hose could be cracked or diaphram in valve is cracked. Easy to inspect the valve.

SOURCE: 84 honda shadow 700 vt lights are unpredictable

There seems to be some short in the circuit of the high beam, you will have to follow the high beam wiring, best would be to get the color of the high beam wire frm the head light bulb socket and trace it along you will sure find somwhere the along it the short.
Check the light switch and the blinker switch too.
Hope this helps!

SOURCE: 1998 valkyrie acts like it runs out of gas , open

All Valkyrie gas tanks have a Sealed cap !!! Their is a VENT tube under the tank . When removing the tank and installing it back on , Make sure this tube is NOT pinched under neath against the
frame !!... This tube allowes air to enter tank ., so fuel will flow to the on - off valve ???

I have a 08 nitro that the cooling fan never comes in causing over heating I've replaced water pump radiator heater core because it was bad the relay seems fine power coming in and out but no fan on

check fuses and coolant temp sensor
the coolant temperature sensor unit ( that is SENSOR not gauge sender unit) sends a report to the ecm to turn on the radiator fan when the temp is reached
If the fan is not coming on then the circuit is broken--sensor, wires ,fuses relay, fan-ecm
all have to be checked out

My 2000 honda crv is overheating there are 2 fans and neither seems to come on

One fan should come on when the A/c is turn on. The other fan Will be the primary radiator cooling fan. This fan is controlled by a coolant temperature switch, a relay and fuse. Once the coolant temp, reaches 186 degs. the fan should come on. So you have to check the fuses for a burnt fuse, then you can check the coolant switch by un-pluging it and making a jump in the wiring with a paper clip and stick it into the connection. That should force the fan on. Hope this helps FixYa up.

Radiator fan does not come on i checked the fan and it checks good,i also changed the the fan fuse no difference.

Your radiator fan is fuse powered but ground activated by the temprature sending unit. Ground the wire at the temp unit and see if the fan comes on with the ignition on. See your local parts dealer fro location.

My fan on my bike is not coming on and the bike is over heating fuse is good

The most common reason for the radiator fan to stop working on a Honda is a bad thermo switch. It is located on the back left side of the radiator and turns the fan on and off. Cost for the part is around $60. The fan motor could also be bad , that runs about $250. Check the fan to see if it is frozen or spins freely. When the lead was grounded on the fan, the fan should turn on.

My 2000 Honda Valkyrie won't start. Replaced the battery, replaced the starter button assembly (whole right side switch assembly) with a new part directly from Honda. When I turn the key everything turns...

First check battery connections...
then check Ignition fuse
then check your neutral, sidestand up....kill switch to RUN...also try using clutch in case the neutral switch is not grounding the starter circuit properly.

Sat highway speeds in cool weather the temp. lite

If the fan is not operateing you might want to run power directly to it from another power source ie a booster pack or another battery if you find that the fan operates then you wil need to be checking wireing & relays
