The fuel filter on a 1991 CBR 1000F is mounted to the petcock assembly (the part that the fuel lines are connected to). If you removes the petcock assembly it is the piece sticking up like a tower but is part of the petcock assembly. You can however use a very fine children's toothbrush and carb cleaner to clear it out a bit.

Are you saying the electric starter will not work? If so, a systematic trouble shoot of the starter system is in order. When you hit the switch does it do anything like make a clicking noise? Generally a check of all the connections, cleaning a tightening grounds may help. The starter solenoid may be the culprit if it doesn't click.
Moisture, age etc deteriorates these problem areas, and once started and warmed up connections improve.

these are dual spark coils. this means that each coil sparks twice on companion cylinders.two leads out of one coil to the two middle cylinders and the two leads out of the other coil go to the two outside cylinders it doesnt matter which coil,but usually one of them has two long leads and the other two shorter leads

1991 Honda CBR... | Answered on Feb 05, 2011

Your new coil is problem. Please replace it or just use the previous one if it still good.

Try checking if you have fire at the plugs, pull a wire and use an old plug. If no fire check kill switch housing contacts, be careful and slow when pulling the housing apart! Mine had corroded contacts which stopped me cold. If that is not it I would start checking and cleaning the plug connectors to the spark unit, CDI box.

Good Luck

take front fender off take the two caliper bolts loose and on the left hand side if you have an anti dive system you will have to take that bolt out as well try not to let them hang in mid air because this will but tension on the fluid lines..now take the two screws off the top of you brake reservoir and just slightly pull it up not off..this will give pressure relief for when you push real hard on the old brake pucks that are now still in the calipers..push and push hard until they collapse all the why back up flat against the calipers.
Now you can remove the old pucks but make sure you look to see which way the anti rattle spring clips go. Now with clean hand install the new pucks into the calipers and now try to work them over your brake disk...then just re-install all the bolts with a dab of locktite and check the reservoir to see if it needs any further fluid, if not, tighten those screws down and you're almost done..this part is the most important you must cycle you handbrakes at least ten times..get on them to make sure it has a good positive feel...you dont want to go to fast on your first ride with new brakes anyway..just casually ride down the street and scuff the pads in...you dont want to go really fast and slam on the breaks real hard or they"ll be glazed over and will not severe up to its best quality
stops. so go slow for first 5 miles... nice gradual stops!

Most common problem of miss shifts is the shifter adjustment. try lowering the shifter so your foot gets under the shifting lever better. Best way to tell if it needs adjustment is sit on bike comfortably, your foot should be even (not over or under shifter) if it is under it, drop it down...

Try that and let me know.

The aftermarket pipes may have a different bend to the original.Making them closer to the affected parts.You can get a 'wrap' that is wound around the pipes.It is used as a performance enhancement.It is used in many tight applications to stop heat transfer from one cylinder to another.Imagine the rear cyl. of a V8.It gets all the heat buildup from the other 3 cyls. in front of it.Your pipes are probably not seen so this may help.Also.Just make sure the timing is correct because if it is wrong it can contribute to a very hot exhaust.Hope this helps

your gonna need a service manual

It is not unusual for the crankcase oil to smell like gasoline. What you should take note of is if the crankcase oil level increases by any noticeable amount. This would be caused by the carburetors overflowing and allowing gasoline to run through open intake valves, into the cylinders and then past the rings. Still, this is a very unlikely scenario given the fact that your bike has a vaccuum actuated petcock.

The botttom line is this; don't worry. Small amounts of gasoline that may present in the crankcase oil is going to quickly evaporate once the engine is up to operating temperature.

Could be a bad regulator/rectifier. You need to check to see what the charging system is putting out at idle, and probably 6-7K RPM's. If you have anything above 14V, you most likely have a reg/rec problem. If not, look for a short in the wiring somewhere.
