1979 Honda 900 F power outage question.

mekongmike, Jan 26, 8:45am
Hi. I was cranking it up to about 9000 rpm tonight and it just died. No light, ignition, horn , indicators etc. Nothing ! I checked main 30 amp fuse under side cover and the smaller fuses under the instrument panel. but they are all fine.

Any advice please ? Mike

Get a Suzuki! (Or check the kill switch)

Thanks Pete. obviously a Suzuki fan.

9000rpm--and wheres redline on a rolladoor? --if you've lost everything check for busted connections.

kazbanz. redline starts at 9000. yeah, possible a broken wire . I'm not sure where to start really. I thought it would be a fuse but no.

I had an XR600 which would loose all the lights as soon as I went over 90kmh. Was the regulator getting hot, moved it to get more airflow and was sorted.
Not sure about your situation tho.

Try contact cleaner in ignition switch.

Yer battery terminal probably broke off with the vibration.

Broken wire under fuel tank. all sorted.

Bloody hot weather, my rectifier popped its clogs today on the Honda.
