A relay is used to control a strong, high-current device eg a headlight, or pump, with a weak, low current signal. It does this by closing a pair of contacts to start the device up.

The relay can be tested by using a multimeter to see if the relay contacts close when voltage is applied to the relay coil.

It does kill the fuel pump when the motor dies, but it also makes the whole circuit more efficient.

Fuel pressure is altogether separate to that, and is regulated by a spring loaded valve in the fuel rail, with a return to the fuel tank.

Instructions
    • 1 Lift the CBR onto its center stand. Unlock the seat latch with the ignition key and remove the seat. Remove the clip screws from the top portion of both seat rail covers, positioned below the fuel tank and the seat, using a Phillips screwdriver. Pull the seat rail covers away from the motorcycle's frame.
    • 2 Remove both bolts from the front of the fuel tank, using a socket wrench and a 10 mm socket. Lift the tank up and prop it open using the support rod on the motorcycle's frame. Reach under the tank and unplug the fuel pump's wiring connector and all three hoses from the bottom of the tank. Take note of hoses' locations before removing them for reinstallation purposes. Pull the hairpin clip out from the support rod's base. Unscrew the pivot bolt from the base of the fuel tank, using a 10 mm socket. Lift the fuel tank off of the motorcycle.

    • 3 Unscrew the air box's mounting bolt from the frame's right seat rail, using a 10 mm socket. Loosen the clamps securing the air box's flanges to the carburetors' inlets, using a Phillips screwdriver. Pull the air box towards the rear of the motorcycle to separate its flanges from the carburetors.
    • 4 Loosen the clamps securing the carburetors to the motor's intake manifolds, using a Phillips screwdriver. Pull the carburetors off of the motor and out through the left side of the motorcycle's frame. The carburetors will still be attached to the motorcycle by its throttle and choke cables. Loosen the choke and throttle cables' lock nuts, using a 10 mm wrench. Remove the cables.
    • 5 Hold the carburetors over a large container. Unscrew the drain screws on the side of each carburetor's float bowl, positioned at the very bottom of the carburetor, using a flat-head screwdriver. Allow the fuel trapped within the float bowl to drain completely, then tighten the drain screws.
    • 6 Flip the carburetor over, with the float bowls up, and place it on a clear work space. Unscrew the bolts from the float bowls, using a Phillips screwdriver, then pull the float bowls and their gaskets away from the carburetors.
    • 7 Unscrew the pilot jet from each carburetor, using a flat-head screwdriver. The pilot jet is placed to the left (with the carburetor facing you) of the main jet in the center of the carburetor. Screw a new pilot jet into place with a flat-head screwdriver.
    • 8 Reinstall the float bowls and their gaskets onto the carburetors. Tighten the float bowls' screws with a Phillips screwdriver. Reattach the throttle and clutch cables to the carburetors and tighten the cables' lock nuts with a 10 mm wrench. Slide the carburetors through the left side of the frame. Push the carburetors into the motor's intake manifolds. Tighten the intake manifolds' clamps with a Phillips screwdriver.
    • 9 Pull the air box against the carburetors and push the air box's flanges over the carburetors' inlets. Tighten the flanges' clamps with a Phillips screwdriver. Screw the air box's mounting bolt onto the frame's right seat rail, using a 10 mm socket.
    • 10 Lay the fuel tank onto the motorcycle's frame. Insert the tank's pivot bolt through the hinge at the base of the tank. Screw the pivot bolt's nut into place, using a 10 mm socket. Lift the tank up and reattach the tank support rod to the motorcycle's frame. Insert the hairpin clip into the support rod's base. Prop the tank up on the support rod. Plug the wiring connector into the fuel pump and reconnect all three hoses onto the bottom of the tank. Screw both mounting bolts onto the front of the fuel tank, using a 10 mm socket.
    • 11 Mount the seat rail covers onto the motorcycle's frame. Insert and tighten the covers' clip screws, using a Phillips screwdriver. Lay the seat onto the seat rails, then press the rear of the seat down until the seat latch locks into place.

You can use any oil that is JASO MA certified motorcycle oil. 10w-40 for cold climate/year round. 20w-50 for warm climate/touring. Automotive oils use different additives and may cause scoring in certain types of cam bearings. Do not use any oil that says " Energy Conserving " on the label . It will shorten the life of your wet clutch and transmission gears. If you choose Synthetic oils, they will help your bike run cooler and shift easier. Shell Rotella T ($12 a gallon ) and Rotella T Synthetic 15w-40 ($22 a gallon) are inexpensive JASO MA oils. You will need 4 quarts of oil, an aluminum drain plug washer, and a filter. Pour in 3.4 quarts , run the motor, and check the oil level . Top up as needed.

By "not getting any fire" does this mean that she's not even attempting to turn over? Are you getting power when you turn the ignition key? If so move forward to the fuses for the starter and cpu. From there check the voltage on the starter and then look at your plugs/wires.

If your talking about the handle bar end, switch assembly, throttle tube, grip. Hard to find used parts, Look for a doner bike, part it out and send the rest to the bone yard. While your taking it apart, you're also reverse engineering and you'll have boxes of spare parts. Or new parts. I like Bike Bandit.com because they have parts diagrams like everyone, but, they show avalable parts and those that you can't get any more. Others don't show the difference. I hope it helps,

There is three chains inside the engine that stretch due to high milage. One is for the starter, one for the cams, and one for the oil pump. I replaced these for a friends bike and it quieted it down.

If your rpms are going up to 7000 but your not moving your clutch is probally about to go out. Just make sure your clutch cable is not binding or stuck.

Hi,
First you must check if your oil lamp is working. Normally after you start your machine and it reaches the minimum pressure above 1 psi, the oil lamp Will light off.
So if you had a problem with your oil pump and it burned you’ll not have information about your lubrication system.
I think you have a problem with your oil pump.
When you open your motor check the color of the pieces when they are blue means that they work with high temperature.
This machine is a good one and if you drive normally it won’t fail.
Please check this and let me know.

This bike is well known for cam chain rattle, but it has an automatic tensioner so there are no adjustments. If the bike runs well just ride it. I have a friend that had his cam chain, tensioner and guides, and in less than a couple years it was making the same sounds. If the bike run rough then it is a possibility the chain has stretched and unless you are confident with timing issues take it to a pro.

It should take about 4 quarts of 10w40 motor oil.
