My cbr 1000f wont start where do i begin
Any time you have a starting problem start with the simplest and work your way back. Battery-fire-fuel. ensure the battery is fully charged, if it still doesn't start check to see if it has fire getting one of the little spark test lights is easiest, but if not, a screwdriver in the end of the spark wire and hold screwdriver about 1/4 inch from a grounded source and turn over if you see spark try with all. If no spark, problem is before plugs. A good practice is to unplug all harnesses and check for corrosion, spray with contact cleaner, then anti-corrosion spray and reconnect. If you have spark check fuel. Spray starting fluid in carbs as you crank. Next would be pulse generator, etc.

I have a 1993 honda cbr 1000 f with an electrical
It is possible to get a faulty reg from new but extremely unlikely.Obviously they are all tested at the factory before packaging.As are all electrical parts.Which are non-returnable in most cases too I'm sorry to say.
Try this test.
With you multi-meter set to ohms & set to the highest scale(k ohms) check the conunuity between each of the three stator wires TO EARTH.
So, disconect the regulator conector at the reg.
Connect one meter probe to a yellow wire & the other probe to earth.(make sure your fingers arn't touching the metal part of the probes or you'll get a false reading).
You should get an open circuit-no conunuity.
If any of the three yellow wires has any conunuity to earth then the stator is at fault.
Sometimes on occasion it has been known for a winding to take a short circuit,without grounding efectivly by-passing only part of the coil & reducing the output of the stator.But again extremely rare.
Seeing that the alternator cover is reasonably easy to remove(I did a Triumph daytona stator removal recently in about 1/2 an hour),I would suggest if all else fails & you're not sure what to do, remove the alternator cover & visually inspect the stator to see if any burning is visable.
If the stator is burnt out in any way, it is common for a pungent smell to come from the stator-You'll notice it when you seperate the cover.
I hope that this has been in some way helpfull
Kind regards Andrew Porrelli.
