Question about Honda XL 650 V Transalp Motorcycles

1 Answer

Honda XL600VM 1991. Bike working fine and all of a sudden revs cut, feels like running on one cylinder, rev counter is going haywire. Hardly any power, will tickover but sounds rough, can just about struggle to 45mph. suspect coil/s but dont want to spend unless reasonably sure. Started bike next morning and runs fine. Has happened once before 3 months ago but has been ok since. Would be grateful for any advice/pointers. I have a basic mechanical knowledge but electrics are not my thing. Thanks. Martin.

That sounds like a problem with the pickup coils. they are mounted to your timing plate, Check them for resistance with an ohm meter, they should be around 5k ohms, if one shows infinite you've found the problem.

The speedometer is not driven by the crank sensor. That drives the rev counter amongst other ignition timing things.

My honda cb750f will not run without the choke being out


Vacuum leak.

Check all mating surfaces, any place where a vacuum line attaches, with a short spray of carb cleaner while running, when you find the leak, it will smooth out and speed up on it's own. And if EGR equipped- make sure the EGR is closing fully when cold and when hot at idle.

Hi i have a Daelim vee 125 evolution i bought 2 weeks ago and was fine for first week, the electric start has never worked since before i bought it so i have to kickstart the bike, it has all of a sudden...


Sounds like you have some kind of wiring short.Look at all wiring harnesses to see if there is a wear spot on wire sheild.Somwhere on that bike somthing is grounding out.Check wires from battery to motor and make sure there not bad.Sounds like the person who owened it before you was having electrical problems that why it has never started with starter.And now the problem has stopped bike completly.Do yourself a favor to rule out a spark problem.Remove sparkplug from engine, put sparkplug back in wire boot.Holding rubber boot touch and hold spark plug to head of bike.Make sure kill switch and key are in run position and kick bike over.See if sparkplug has crisp blue spark.If so you have a fuel problem.Then i would remove and clean carborator.But this definitly sounds like a short in wiring somwhere.Your gonna have to trace all wires to make sure there isnt a ground.Good Luck...

Engine cutting out whilst riding along


Hi
If all the electrics go off then :-
A) Check tightness of battery terminals & condition of battery
B) Check for dodgy fuse or dirty connections
C) Check voltage across battery terminals when engine running - should be at least 12.5v rising with increasing revs to 15v max - if not then suspect the regulator/rectifier unit or the wiring from it to battery

I hope this helps, if so please mark as helpful.
Positive comments always appreciated
