Looking from above forward, it would be down on the left side of the cylinder head. Above the header. Couple of wires running out of it and it plugs into the harness on top of the head, but under the airbox.

Re: 2003 honda cbr 954rr wont start

I'll begin this by saying "Complete Twat" and that refers to me. Wheeled my 954 out and it wouldn't start. I'd lent it to its original owner as a 'no-bike' therapy favour. It just went click when I hit the starter. Put it in gear. Rocked it. Tried again. Nothing. Put it back in the garage and got out the VStrom and hit the 60 miles to Robin Hood's Bay from York.
Got back, had a think. The bloody engine kill switch had been flipped to off when he brought it back [email protected]$[email protected]
Any help - or are you as dumb as me?

Re: 2003 honda cbr 954rr wont start

if the pump runs when cranking the crank pulse sensor is ok. The cam senor you can test the continuity and output but can't remember exactly how. More likely though is power or earth connections.

my 929 - similar wiring wiring etc, had a problem with the junction in the look at post 6 in this thread:

You mean the bar-mounted EMERGENCY kill switch?

Word to the wise, stop using it

Weve all done it, Ive adjusted a mirror and without realising knocked the kill switch on a Yamaha TX500, I ended up calling roadside recovery thinking it had died, he just flicked the switch and it fired up. Made me feel like a first class twerp

Re: 2003 honda cbr 954rr wont start


Happened when I rode a rented 250 Honda XL round Cambodia. Took it with me on the boat to Siam Riep.
When the lads put it on, or took it off the kill switch got flicked. Much unhappiness watching the touristos cruise away in their transport as I scratched my head on the muddy bank.
You do feel a complete idiot when you realise. But relief!!!

It was a 929, then a DL650 - but when the 954 came up ..
