Most motorcycle problems are caused by the nut that connects the handlebars to the saddle.

speedo stopped and choke

Post by bmd on Sun 13 Mar 2016, 7:43 pm

my bike is 04 reg,
the speedo has just stopped working,
tacho and idiot lights work on clocks, just not the speedo,
is this a common problem?
the sensor has been tested in situ, 
also the choke does not seem to work, the cable pulls the choke open but the engine does not rev up,

is it a twin? haven't seen those past an '03 plate.....

if it is I'd suggest removing the speedo drive gear from the front wheel aswell as the cable to make sure they are driving the cable wire round to power the speedo.

as for the choke get the tank off and make sure the choke cable is sliding the adjustor on the carbs as it may have come loose.

speedo has sensor that is located behind the front sprocket, gearbox area,
so its electronic,

choke cable is fixed to the carbs as can see it moving,
might need carbs cleaned

Sounds like cbf,   i think i buy one after my cb dies, because it has same engine. Not mad about rear light or side panels, but if it goes as good and handles same as cb i get one when time comes, dont some of them have abs...

if I were you Id try and go for the CBF600NA........ I rode a CBF500 wasn't as fun as the CB500 and felt more restrictive than the 600.

(same rear light though....)

Hello.

How were you testing the sensor?

Did you check the continuity of the wiring between the sensor and where it connects to the speedo?

Have you inspected/cleaned any wiring connectors you have found along the way?

Don't really know if this is a common problem on the CBF500.

Whats cbf 600 is it a detuned cbr 600 engine i had two cbr 600f2s years ago, think if i was going for 4cylinder 600, it either be cbr 600 f3  up to 98 , or hornet 600 1998 version. Nearly bought crash light damaged 00 cbr 600 for 1000 euro sliped up there before i bought cb Evil or Very Mad

Sorry if this sounds stupid........... I thought my sons choke was doing similar things with the engine not reving up................. Although I thought I was opening the choke fully, I found a last bit of movement on the lever that increased the speed and I was simply not pulling it back far enough.

This is true - the choke has to be *fully* on to activate fully, if that makes any sense - the little plungers on the carbs need to be pulled out to the max.
