Question about Honda CBR 600 F(1)H Motorcycles

1 Answer

I have a 1991 honda cbr 600, she'll start fine with the choke fully on. As she warms I let the choke off slightly and keep her at about 1,500rpm. Then she'll start steadily cutting out. It doesn't matter what I do after that. She just won't start again. Ive tried catching it with the throttle, choke and mixture gauge on the side but 9/10 times she just dies quicker. Please could you help?

You didn't say whether the bike has been sitting (without being run) for any amount of time. If it has, I'd say that either your pilot jets are plugged, or you float needle is blocked/restricted; thus not allowing it to refill the carb bowls as fast as the fuel is being drawn from them by the engine. The later though usually only effects 1 maybe 2 carbs. Not usually all 4. the plugged pilots jets are more likely.
So how long has the bike sat without running? (And "It was running before I parked it" doesn't apply here) :-)
Good luck

My cbr 600 f2 1993 had been sitting for a long time

Sounds like the carbs were not properly cleaned or set up. Choke should cause the cold start rpms to be higher than what you are experiencing. Application of choke to a warmed up engine will usually cause the engine to stall.

( 93 cbr600f2 was crashed and rebuilt seems to have hot spark but wont start smells like its flooding Made just a couple gurgle sounds out of the pipe then a small backfire where do i start fire carbs...

sound like it's flooded over. i have one of these bikes for a stunt bike and had a similar problem before. use a fully charged jump box. connected it to your battery and hold the start button. don't use choke or give it any gas either. it mike take about 5-15 minutes to start, but it will.
