20 Most Recent 2005 Honda Silverwing 600 ABS Questions & Answers

Found out that the brake had to be depressed all the way, and not just until you hear the "click". Squeeze the brake hard, and it will start every time. It's a safety feature that Honda has to ensure that the scooter is in control once it's started.

Follow the wires sounds like one of the wires may have come adrift.

Even though the bulb looks ok double check it by replacing it with a new one - they are only like $2.50.

Hi Linda, If that is what the manual says then who are we to argue with Honda? Engine quality has improved hugely and so service intervals can be long. How you ride the bike and in what conditions will have an influence on how often you should change the oil, filters and so on. I have made it a point of changing the oil on every bike I have owned at 2000km (1600 mile) intervals. I figuer my engine will last twice as long that way, and I should have fewer mechanical problems. Bikes have small sumps so the cost is not too high and a motorcycle engine works at higher revs than a car so I figure let it have good oil to work in.

I was also told that this happens when the rear drive hub requires lubrication. grease that, and you'll be a happier camper.

even though the belt appeared to be okay it might not be. inspect the belt a little close and see if it has glazed on the side that runs on the clutches. you might also want to have your clutches inspected.

2 solutions to this:

First is buy a bike manual to see what the procedure is to find the fault code which will be a series of flashing light on the ABS system that will tell you the fault. Second solution take it to your Honda dealer.

Have u had the battery tested? most auto part stores like Kragen and others will do this for free., sounds to me like the battery is open inside from the crash, have seen this happen many times, trust me on this have had cycles for entire adult life have seen this very problem on my own bikes over the years..

Yep, its somewhat normal. Your crankcase ventilation tube connects to the back of the airbox. There is a small foam to dampen the airflow and remove the droplets from the flow - but other than that the crankcase is connected to the airbox. Now the good question is that what amount is normal, i.e. under what conditions there may be excessive amounts of oil generating so much positive pressure to crankcase that the oil becomes clearly visible in airbox... one reason may be too high oil level to start with ? Other reasons may relate to some kind of piston blowby - like rings glued into the piston? Also it is sometimes possible that PAIR lets air to move back to the airbox - but have not seen that happening in a busa, just in a car. In that case rather than oil its black carbon residue which feels a bit oil'ish. You can test the crancase pressure by removing the hose from the back of the airbox and feel the pressure when engine is running. It should not be blowing air out - but some pressure, or more like pulses will be felt. (Its so long time when I have last done this test, so maybe someone could describe this better...) Anyway this reminded me about the fact that in cars there is often a PCV valve, positive crankcase ventilation valve. I am just wondering why we dont have that in busa ? The performance related desire to have negative crankcase pressure surely is not the reason...

you will need to attach an Ohm meter to the battery when it is fully charged then pull around at all wiring on the cycle to see if the meters reading changes to OL. When that happens that area of wires is your short

That would be my first guess!! If you locate the fuel pump you can try tapping on it and see if it becomes intermittant. Or if it isn't too much just go ahead and change it. Expecially if it left you stranded once already. Sincerely HDTV GURU JAY

check the points. probably corroded, sand them clean, and re-do timing

there is no such thing as adjusting things by how many turns. If you want to do it evenly you need a torg wrench. Small bolts are only about 25 to 35 ft lbs.
