Question about 1999 Honda CBR 600 F(4)X

1 Answer

I HAVE A 1999 HONDA CBR600F4. IT HAD BEEN SITTING FOR 2 YEARS AND HAD BAD GAS IN IT. I REPLACED THE BATTERY, REPLACED THE PLUGS, CLEANED OUT THE CARBS WITH CARB CLEANER. GOT IT TO RUN AFTER ALOT OF STARTS. NOW WHEN I CRANK THE BIKE IT FEELS LIKE I HAVE TO LEAVE THE CHOKE ON TO GET IT TO IDLE. IT ALSO BOGS DOWN WHEN I TRY TO GIVE IT THROTTLE. i CAN RIDE IT, BUT I HAVE TO KEEP THE RPM UP. WHAT COULD THE PROBLEM BE? THE STARTER REALLY TURNED OVER A LOT TRYING TO GET IT CRANKED.....NOW WHEN I HIT THE STARTER IT WILL TURN OVER 3 TIMES THEN LOCKS.....SOUNDS LIKE A METAL SHRIEK SOUND. THANK YOU

First,your over heating the starter, hope its still good. 2nd, running carb cleaner thru will not clean the whole carb, only lite deposits. You need to pull the jets, and clean then, thats where your problem is. Jets have a very small hole to atomize the gas, and need to be clean.

I just purchased in 1999 Honda CRV DX, it had been sitting for a couple of years put fresh gas in plugs and changed oil, and it is running a little rough still. I'm thinking of doing new wires .'


I recommend changing the fuel filter, air filter, and adding Seafoam Fuel System Cleaner into the gas tank to clean the injectors as well as replacing the wires.

1999 honda vfr 800. Had a full service done on bike all fluids filters plugs etc. Bike starts ok but as soon as i turn the throttle bike dies no fault codes standing on bike


Hi, Walter you have fuel delivery issues probably carbs I hear your gas tank is begging for a can of Sea Foam if your bike has been sitting idle for months or years and you did not do any pre-storage maintenance I feel your pain it will probably have a dead and not want to start or if it starts it will idle and run poorly then stall, here are the following steps necessary to complete in order to get your bike back to an acceptable running condition.
1. If your battery was 2-3 years old when you last had the bike running you should replace it.
2. If you believe your battery might still be serviceable remove it from the bike and put it on a 1 or 2 amp trickle charger for 24 hours. If it is the old lead acid type with visible cells and acid levels fill each cell to the top line with distilled water and replace the caps, run the vent tube into a plastic or styrofoam cup, any cells that are cloudy/milky replace the battery.
3. After charging remove the leads and let the battery sit for a couple of hours then check the battery voltage with a volt meter, you should have 12.5 volts or better, any readings in the 11 volt range you need to do a proper load test on the battery and replace as necessary, any readings in the 10 volt range you have a dead cell and the battery needs to be replaced.
4. Drain and flush fuel tank, google " how to clean a motorcycle gas tank" find a couple forums to view the different options available.
5. Remove and inspect your air cleaner paper elements that are not oil soaked can be cleaned with a soft brush and low pressure compressed air, oil soaked elements must be replaced. Gause mesh and foam elements can be cleaned by soaking them in a container big enough to completely cover them with a solution of 1 gallon of water and 1 oz. of Dawn dishwashing liquid for small and medium size elements, for monster size double the formula and let soak for at least one hour then rinse with warm water shake off excess and let air dry, "WARNING" do not use compressed air as this will embed micro-sized dirt and road grime and destroy the mesh pattern and stretch foam elements out of shape just squeeze it like a sponge and let air dry, use a fan if you're in a hurry. When completely dry spray a very fine mist of air filter oil evenly around the whole element.
6. Remove the carburetors, disassemble and decontaminate with a carb dip or if you have EFI remove injectors and clean with carb spray and compressed air
7. Remove fuel valve and filter disassemble and clean as necessary, remove, clean, and inspect fuel and vacuum lines and replace as necessary.
8. Replace spark plugs with new ones and check for spark.

Hi, Anonymous if your bike has been sitting idle for months or years and you did not do any pre-storage maintenance I feel your pain it will probably have a dead battery and not want to start or if it starts it will not idle unless the choke is full on and run poorly then stall, here are the following steps necessary to complete in order to get your bike back to an acceptable running condition and in the future pour in a bottle of fuel stabilizer and injector cleaner for you FI folks at least 2 times a year and before storage.
1. If your battery was 2-3 years old when you last had the bike running you should replace it.
2. If you believe your battery might still be serviceable remove it from the bike and put it on a 1 or 2 amp trickle charger for 24 hours. If it is the old lead acid type with visible cells and acid levels fill each cell to the top line with distilled water and replace the caps, run the vent tube into a plastic or styrofoam cup, any cells that are cloudy/milky replace the battery.
3. After charging remove the leads and let the battery sit for a couple of hours then check the battery voltage with a volt meter, you should have 12.5 volts or more, any readings in the 11 volt range you need to do a proper "LOAD" test on the battery and replace as necessary, you may have 12.5 volts or better but little or zero amps, any readings in the 10 volt range you have a dead cell and the battery needs to be replaced.
4. Drain and flush fuel tank if it rusty there is a cheap and easy fix. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fUYr_7SwGms
5. Remove and inspect your air cleaner paper elements that are not oil soaked can be cleaned with a soft brush and low pressure compressed air, oil soaked elements must be replaced.

6. Remove the carburetors, disassemble and decontaminate with a "CARB DIP" or if you have EFI remove injectors and clean with carb spray and compressed air
7. Check intake manifold and seals for leaks and cracks.
8. Remove fuel valve and filter disassemble and clean as necessary, remove, clean, and inspect fuel and vacuum lines and replace as necessary.

1999 Honda CBR 600 F(4)X no spark


Hi, Anonymous and the usual suspects are:
1. Fouled spark plugs.
2. Severely discharged or a damaged battery should have 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 batteries fail in this scenario more so than lead acid batteries.
3. Check 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 if necessary.
4. Loose connection at ignition coil or plug between ignition sensor and module.
5. Spark plug cables in bad condition, shorting/leaking, spark plug cable connections loose check for spark leakage in the dark.
6. Faulty ignition coil or electronic control module.
7. Faulty pulse coil.
8. Faulty CKP, CMP, or BAS sensor.
9. Faulty ignition switch.
10. Tilt sensor needs a reset.
11. Security alarm failing to disarm needs reset

1999 Yamaha 1200GP Wave Runner wont' start. It has sat for about 2 years. I have new battery, new plugs and new gas, it turns over but won't start, any suggestions?


Sounds like the carbs are gummed up from the old gas sitting in them. Remove the carbs, disassemble, clean with a carb cleaner, and reassemble.

It's been sitting for 4 years - It's in very good condition - barely ridden - I've replaced the battery, plugs, gas - cleaned the carberator - it turn over, but wont crank... suggestions?


Clean the air filter if you have not done it yet. Get a spray can of starting fluid and spray into the filter. You did check the plugs for spark didn't you? If no spark, check the sidestand kill switch as well as the handlebar kill switch.
