Question about Honda Silverwing 600 ABS Motorcycles

1 Answer

When I turn the key on and hear the high-pitched whining noise (it's not very loud), the bike starts. No noise, no start. It's intermittent. Failed once on the road. Took to the local Honda shop twice. Both times could not get to fail. I'm assuming it's the fuel pump. Please advise. Thanks, Gary Nykoruk

    Just depends if you call 350 bucks too expensive. As I thought, no difinitive answer. Just reaffirmed what I already thought, wasted my twelve bucks. Won't be back to the sight. Won't recommend. I'm the jackwagon for falling for it. :(

That would be my first guess!! If you locate the fuel pump you can try tapping on it and see if it becomes intermittant. Or if it isn't too much just go ahead and change it. Expecially if it left you stranded once already. Sincerely HDTV GURU JAY

    Sorry you feel like u got shorted here. But what kind of Honda is it? And why not take the fuel pump off and bench test it? How many miles are on bike? See if it pumps with it off the bike every time... Just put input of fuel pump in some fluid of some type like gas and see if it pumps every time you hook power to it. If it doesn't then you have a bad fuel pump. Simple as that. I will help you further if you give me some more details next time... But for now, good luck and happy motorcycling. Keep the rubber side down. HDTV GURU JAY

High Pitched Whine


A high pitched whine like that indicates a bad bearing. Water pump, power steering pump, accessory belt slipping, alternator bearing, or in the worst case scenerio, Transmission pump.

Try turning the steering wheel when you hear this noise, If it changes the pitch of the whine its likely either low on power steering fluid or pump is failing

How deep do you want to get into this?It sounds like the wash pump motor bearings that are worn.You can pull the unit out flip it over and wd40 the bearings in the motor or you can replace the bearings.Try to lube them first.

Dishwasher Making Loud High Pitched Noise.


A loud high pitch whine while running the dishwasher means that there is something caught in the chopper assembly. To get to the chopper assembly you need to take the racks out and take the pump apart from the inside of the dishwasher. The chopper assembly looks like a metal grate with holes in it. And it might not even be stuck in the grate but somewhere in the pump area due to the water being pumped out, so the best idea is to take the whole thing apart and clean everywhere. However I do not recommend doing this unless you are completely certain you will remember where the screws and gaskets go, otherwise you risk damaging your pump or house from a leak or improper installation. You have been warned.
