SOURCE: Honda VTR 1000 Low fuel sensor problem

Hi,

On most bikes, the fuel level sensor is inside the tank and basically is a dampened float. The entire assembly could be accessed beneath the tank and would be connected by a single connector with two terminals. This pair of wire would then go to the instrumentation/cluster to trigger the fuel level gauge or in your case low level sensor. Often the connector would become loose or the terminals corroded. The sensor inside the tank could be tested with a continuity tester (DVM/VOM)

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information. Good luck and kind regards. Thank you for using FixYa.

Check your stator or pickup coil, if you run with a low battery chances are that you have either one or both.
Hope this helps you.

SOURCE: Cam chain tensioners

i replaced mine on my cbr f1 with a salvaged one... a couple of bolts and it took me 20 minutes with fairings off. it was a good thing i replaced it, because the old one was worn down really bad, and its was wobbly. I heard that if you use an aftermarket and you don't know what your doing you could cause damage. can i get some feedback, thanks

Hi i have a 2003 honda vtr firestorm just wondering when cam chain and tensioner should be changed .Also at what intervals should bike be serviced.


Manufacturer recomeds tensioner @ 40k but please change them at 35k. My rear tensioner failed @ 40150 ks and two bent valves, valve stem seals, head gasket + the two 50$ tensioners + labour, i was back on the road.
as for the servicing i personally have been doing 5k oil and 10k oil and filter change. As long as the service intervals are with in six months apart i dont think you wil have a problem. If you dont do many k's change your oil at least once every six months-oil is cheap.

Loud tapping coming from the front of my vtr 1000


Some VTR1000's had a problem with the cam chain tensioner on the front cylinder. If this is left the chain can become so loose it skips a few teeth on the cam sprocket and bends the valves. If you can locate the tensioner, remove the centre screw with sealing washer from it, insert a small flat blade screwdriver in and run the engine. you will feel the screwdriver shake about if the tensioner has gone.

Rattling noise from engine sometimes . mostly when choke just turned off or slowing to stop early on . not as bad when done a few miles . 15000 miles on clock . suspect cam chain tensioners ?


Its probably the automatic cam chain tensioner. Honda told me to ignore the noise because nothing bad is happening. My bike shop said I should replace it with a manual tensioner. I have 15300 miles and will leave it be.
