An improperly adjusted headlight may blind on coming drivers, or it may fail to light the road for a safe distance. Adjust the headlight beam as specified by local laws and regulations. Place the motorcycle on a level surface. Adjust the headlight beam vertically by turning the vertical beam adjusting screws. A clockwise rotation moves the beam up. Horizontally beam adjustment are made using the horizontal beam adjusting screws. A clockwise rotation moves the beam toward the right side of the...

Voltage Inspection After

Support the front end of the fuel tank (page 3-6). Disconnect the speed sensor 3P natural connector and check for loose or poor contact of the connector. With the ignition switch is turned to ON and measure the voltage at the 3P natural connector of the wire harness side. Connection Black brown ( + )-Green black (-) Standard Battery voltage If there is no voltage, replace and repair the wire harness. Check for loose or poor connection of the combination meter 16P black connector. With the...

Self Diagnostic Procedures

Place the motorcycle on its side stand. Start the engine and let it idle. If the malfunction indicator does not light or blink, the system has no memory of problem data. If the malfunction indicator blinks, note how many times the malfunction indicator blinks, and determine the cause of the problem (page 5-12 through 5-54). The malfunction indicator will start blinking only with the side stand down and with the engine off (engine stop switch on) or engine revs are below 5,000 rpm. In any other...

Coolant Hydrometer Test

Remove the radiator cap. Test the coolant gravity using a hydrometer (see below for Coolant gravity chart). For maximum corrosion protection, a 1 1 solution of ethylene glycol and distilled water is recommended (page 6-4). Look for contamination and replace the coolant if necessary. Coolant temperature CC ( F) Coolant ratio

Charging System Inspection

When inspecting the charging system, check the system components and lines step-by-slep according to the troubleshooting on page 16-4. Measuring circuits with a large capacity that exceeds the capacity of the tester may cause damage to the tester. Before starting each test, set the tester at the highest capacity range first, then gradually lower the capacity ranges until you have the correct range. When measuring small capacity circuits, keep the ignition switch off. If the switch is suddenly...

Brake Fluid Fillingair Bleeding

Fill The reservoir with DOT 4 brake fluid from a sealed container. Use only DOT 4 brake fluid from a sealed container. Do not mix different types of fluid. They are not compatible. Operate the brake lever several times to bleed air from the master cylinder. Connect a commercially available brake bleeder to the outer bleed valve. Pump the brake hleeder and loosen the bleed valve, adding fluid when the fluid level in the master cylinder reservoir is low. Check the fluid level often while bleeding...

Honda Blackbird Secondary Master Cylinder

Drain the pedal brake hydraulic system (page 15-5). Remove the left front brake caliper joint bolt. Remove the brake hose oil bolt, sealing washers, brake hose eyelet. Avoid spilling fluid on painted, plastic, or rubber parts. Place a rag over these parts whenever the system is serviced. Remove the secondary master cylinder mounting bolts and reflector. Remove the oil bolt, sealing washers and secondary master cylinder. Remove the snap ring from the master cylinder body using the special tool...
