cbr 900 rrv 97

hi guys.
i bought a blade yesterday. i bought her thinking she would need some work, she does,
i was told that she was running about a month ago and would need a new battery. i have got a new battery and tried to start her up.

she just spins over but wont fire up. new plugs fitted but no change

the spark on the plugs is very weak, its not going to the tip of the plug its bouncin around it.

any ideas where to start looking for thw problem please ?

Re: cbr 900 rrv 97

Start by trying it off a car battery. If it has slight issues a bit more juice might help. I'd have a check of your main earth first. Also of its really a weak spark (hard to tell in daylight) take the plug cap off, chop back til you get good wire and screw back in. There's also a resistor in the cap this can get coked up over time so stick a small flat blade screwdriver in the cap and unscrew it, clean the bits inside and put back together.

Keep us up to date, it's always interesting to know what the issue was

Re: cbr 900 rrv 97

Thanks for the advice amorti

I cleaned the caps and the connections to the coils with wd40.
Worked a treat. She fired up first turn. Happy days.

I just got the fork seals to do now.

I do have a quick question on the clutch though.
She has been stood for a few months and the clutch does not seem to be operating correctly.
I can see it moving inside the casing and there has been oil in it while it was stood.

I have been told its because its been stood so long and that when its been running for a bit it will work again.

Is this correct?

Re: cbr 900 rrv 97

Depends on how you mean by not working right?

First time you kick it into gear, keep weight on the rear brake or it might lurch forward if the clutch plates are binding. You might stall it knocking it into gear, but that should free up the plates.

When you've ridden it come back and describe in more detail. Clutches are basically pretty simple though, not many (types of) moving parts in there

As for fork seals, don't be tempted by cheap replicas just get original parts. If you don't already have DavidSilverSpares on your favourites, get it bookmarked.

Re: cbr 900 rrv 97

I will give it a try first thing in the morning.

the fork seals will have to wait a few days now, family comes first lol

i do have oem seals though, no point in using cheapy ones like you say.

she will hopefully be ready in a week or so

thanks again for the help.

i will get some pics up when i figure out how to do it lol
