  1. Fuel pump not working Gen6

    Hello, my 2006 VFR800A died within a minute of driving. I found that I had a short in the alarm system or heated gear connection, which caused frame to be positive. I removed that stuff, it was wired directly off the battery. Was hoping that would just make things work, but no such luck. Battery doesn't drain in under a day now, that's a plus I guess... When I turn the ignition key to on with the red switch closed, I hear the relay click once, and that's it. Then it clicks again on turning the key off. (same behavior with the key in the on position, and closing and opening the red switch). Reading no voltage between brown and green plug for the fuel pump. Looked at the large blue plug, looks ok? Not sure where to go from here. I read here that the relay is supposed to click again in a couple seconds, but mine doesn't. Just clicks on red switch close/open or key turn on. What should be the next thing to check? Thanks!!!
  2. This was certainly not my finest hour - I was replacing the original battery on a new-to-me 2010 VFR 1200 when the terminal on the new (Interstate) battery broke off! (I'll be returning it for a Yuasa). Anyway, during the ensuing struggle, I accidentally shorted/arched the negative wire to ground. Now when I hit start, I do not hear the fuel pump/injectors kicking on like they used to. After several attempts, the bike started briefly but died out shortly thereafter. During the time it was running, I tried blipping the throttle and it did absolutely nothing, like it was no longer functional. I visually inspected all of the underseat fuses and they all look fine. Any assistance would be GREATLY appreciated!
  3. Fuel Pump Failure

    Hi Guys, Got a VFR 1200 FA and it keeps burning out fuel pumps! Tried both Honda OEM, very expensive and cheap replacements. I have replaced rectifier, relays and check cabling for voltage drop, continuity and any signs of damage and see nothing wrong. There is no water or gunk in the tank and the fuel is standard unlead 95 or 98. I am about to replace the COPs (Coil Over Plug), in case these cause any issues and will remove the fuel filter with a tank filler sock filter. The problem typically happens after a straight run on the motorway, I am getting quite good at replacing these and don't go anywhere without a spare. They can last from 500 km to 5000 km, but would expect about 25000 km min... What happens is the carbon brushes seem to ware out... I have read that in tank fuel pumps do have a trigger signal that is used to clear the surface of these, but this is in micro seconds, not sure if this has something to do with it. Spoke to a Honda dealer and he thinks the COPs are at fault, we will see.. Otherwise I love the bike... Anyone else had this issue? dave
  4. 6Th Generation Starting Issue

    2007 Honda VFR 800 The bike quit a few times randomly while riding it. By the time I got to the side of the road it would start right back up One day when I rode to work: · No issues on the way in (20 minutes) · Bike wouldn't run more than 100 yards without quitting after work. o When it quit the FI light wasn't on o Cycling the key and kill switch didn't do anything to get the pump to prime. The FI light only flashes as the starter turns the engine over. o Hitting the start switch the engine would turn over, but never fire o After letting it sit (~5 minutes) without touching anything the fuel pump would prime and light would come on o You could then start the bike and ride ~100 yards before it quit again. o All other electronics seem to be working correctly all the time (electronic speedometer, lights, etc.) o After loading the bike into the truck and taking it home the FI light won’t come on and the pump won’t prime….even after cooled off. Since the FI light flashes when hitting the starter, I’d think the fuel pump isn't the problem but rather something is preventing power from getting to the light or pump. What’s a good place to start looking for issues?
  5. Fuel Pump Won't Activate

    2001 VFR 800 Fi. With ignition on all lights and displays come on. Cannot hear the fuel pump charge. Engine cranks, no fuel smell. Can hear a rely click on and then off in area of fuel cut relay. What do I test first?
  6. Vfr 750 Fuel Pump

    Hello all, Some of you may know that the fuel pump on my 750 packed up recently and was only brought back to life by the mechanic filing down the points inside. He said it'll work for a while but that I will definately need to get myself a new one. Of course the OEM one is a ton of money and will eventually break again so I am looking at getting something cheaper that will also last longer. Facet seem to do a range of pumps but is there one in partiuclar that will work as good as OEM and not flood the engine? There is also this one but again might it flood the engine: http://www.ebay.ie/itm/12V-ELECTRIC-FUEL-PUMP-UNIVERSAL-DIESEL-OR-PETROL-/261060771194?pt=UK_CarsParts_Vehicles_CarParts_SM&hash=item3cc86f3d7a And then this one: http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/HONDA-CBR600-900-VFR750-Replacement-Fuel-Pump-/111142109343?pt=UK_Motorcycle_Parts_13&hash=item19e096009f What would your recommendations be?
  7. I hate to start another electrical thread, and have been reading all the wiring harness threads and testing various parts of the system, but I am trying to learn how to use a multimeter. Mine is analog. And all I know about electricity is that it is FM. (Fooken Magic). I need to figure out why oldster's fuel pump won't energize. To find the bad spot, I'm supposed to remove the cable from the positive post of the battery, put the black lead (ground) from the meter on the neg. battery post, and measure voltage and resistance at suspect places along the harness. Right? The battery is charged and the engine cranks fine. Just no whine. Everything was working fine (accept the horn - it's wires had been connected - broken fuse holder) before I took the wiring harness apart in front to replace the upper cowl support. All connections looked great and everything was connected properly. I had to buy a new in-line fuse for the horn and reconnect it. I turned the key and the horn started blaring non-stop. Shut off ignition and unplugged the horn. Deal with that later. But the fuel pump did not energize when I turned the ignition back on. I do not know if the fuel pump energized the first time because the horn had all my attention. Took all front wires apart again and sprayed electrical cleaner on both sides of all connections. Back together, fuel pump still does not work. Could the horn event affect the rest of the harness or the fuel pump ? This '01, the oldster, has 105,000 mi. I started to check the fuel pump but the service manual has me removing the air box and all ignition pieces so I stopped. Seems too much just to test the fuel pump. And I need detailed procedure to test the pump. BTW, I have a VFRness and Rick's r/r to be put on the youngster (no r/r melting, burnt connectors, all looks perfect) bike as preventive. (The old gals r/r and stator failed and were replaced 17,000 mi ago. I'm hopeing they will last a while.) I should probably order a second VFRness for the oldster but money is tight and I've already spent $1500 for new bodywork. I'm going out to disassemble the start/stop switch to see what it looks like. Back in a few minutes. Terry
  8. Hi all, I have a recurring leak from the stock fuel pump on my '95 (from the vent area). The leak is bad enough that it's leaving a puddle under the bike, so I purchased a Facet 40171 fuel pump to do the replacement. Before I get too far with fuel lines and the install, I thought I'd ask if anyone has done this and can share any tips or photos of their install/routing? I've seen it referenced as a thread on here several times, but muliple searches have turned up zilch. I'm not particularly interested in running gravity-feed only, for those that offer that suggestion. Thanks in advance. - Tom
  9. Hi All, Second question from my RC30 replica project, I want to use an NC30 tank on my VFR750 (4th gen) for my RC30 project (would love an RC30 one but seem to be as rare as rocking horse, er, teeth). From what I can see teh VFR uses a pressurised fuel system via a fuel pump, the NC30 and RC30 both had a simple gravity type system (pretty sure most of the earlier VFRs did), can I simply ditch the fuel pump and use that type of tank, running the fuel line from the fuel cock to the carbs? Any help would be welcomed! Sean
