Question about 2001 Honda CBR 600 F(4)i
I have a 2001 cbt600 f4i and the other day I was running to the gas station then to work. well on the way to the gas station I didn't let my bike fully idle and on the ride to the gas station I felt like I was losing power and the bike started to sound like a dirtbike. well, i just thought that the bike was still cold, so I figured by the time I got to the gas station that I would see the temp come up. what do I see "--" still. so I get gas, then hop onto the interstate only for my bike to have the blank red light come on not the FI light and the oil light in the cluster start to flash. so I take the bike to another gas station thinking it needs oil, well I put car oil in because I didn't know there was specific motorcycle oil. so rode it back home like that and haven't touched it since. I changed the oil but have not changed the filter. the bike now will not turn over even with a push start. it sounds like it wants to turn over but makes a noise like its gasping for air. PLEASE HELP! it is my only transportation. thanks! @
Hi, Mckarma before testing any electrical component in the Starting Circuit it is "IMPERATIVE" that you have a fully charged battery of 12.5 volts or more and be able to pass a proper "LOAD" test if necessary, you may have a preliminary reading of 12.5 volts or more but little or zero amperage, the battery is faulty and must be replaced. AGM type batteries fall into this scenario more so than lead-acid batteries.
1. Ignition Switch not in the "ON" position.
2. Engine Run Switch in the "OFF" position.
3. Engine Run Switch is "FAULTY" or corroded.
4. Check the battery terminals for damage or corrosion check the battery cables at "BOTH" ends for loose, corroded, or broken connectors, "INSIDE" and outside the cable harness, perform connector wiggle test and check cables with an ohmmeter.
5. Bank angle sensor needs a reset or is faulty.
6. FOB battery low or dead.
7. Faulty ignition switch.
8. Faulty starter button.
9. Faulty kickstand, clutch, neutral safety switch.
10. Security alarm needs a reset.
11. Starter relay, solenoid, starter motor or circuit wiring faulty.
12. Starter armature or field coils have failed.
13. Main fuse or circuit breaker may be blown or faulty.
14. Faulty ignition relay.
15. The electric starter is working but starter clutch has failed.
16. Check for engine trouble codes.

The water pump seal is maybe gone.This would allow water into the trans.Get it checked and also that the bearing hasn,t spun in its location.This may cause the color change.Being a grey color,it may indicate aluminium in the oil.This may be the spun bearing turning in the housing.With what you wrote,I would get these things looked at.I hope this helps you

The bike may be discharging the battery. you need to test stator output,voltage regulator,and the fuses. Does the battery need to be recharged to restart?

It comes on every time the oil pressure falls below a preset level. If you are running out of oil (because the level is low), then 1) shame on you for not checking the oil level frequently! It's not like you have to lift the hood, or anything hard like that, and 2) don't drive it at all until you get some oil in there!
If you have plenty of oil, then you could have a stuck oil pressure relief valve, a blocked oil pickup, a worn out oil pump, an unbelievably clogged oil filter, or an internal oil leak (from a crack, or something coming loose).
In a water cooled car, the water only does 60% of the cooling. Another 20% is by aire passing over the engine surface, and the rest is carried to the oil sump to be cooled by air passing over the pan. Motorcycles have highly finned oil sumps for a reason: They shed a lot of heat through the oil. If you are low on oil, you will be low on cooling, too.
If you fill up with oil, but you still overheat, you probably have an excessively lean fuel mixture. If that is the case, and you let that continue, this bike won't last very long.
I just checked and found that this is a water cooled engine. So yes, you probably need coolant -- check into that right away. If the water pump gets dry even for a split second, the seals (lacking the lubrication that the water provides) will be destroyed -- it happens instantly.
