Hi Art

I've not gotten round to reading the codes just yet, took the bike out and it rides as normal, no faults.

It got me thinking that time the light came on I kept the bike in low rives for that 30 minutes ride, doing ~20-60.

I'm probably going a bit on the tangent here, but I got the bike recently, and this is the first bike I own that sounds like this (
) when idling. Is this idle sound normal for a CBF?

Yes, if that's a photo of your battery yours is the later (2010 to 2013) SC64 face lift model. You'll find the DLC on the right hand side under the petrol tank as above.

I guess mine might be SC64. Thanks again for the pointers!

Note the location of the Data Link Connector on the later SC64 (MkII) face lift model is under the fuel tank.

no need to remove the battery, the thread I linked too explains where the DLC is on the original SC58 model (Remove the seats...)

I've now added the location for the DLC on the face lift SC64 model, or you can refer to the Honda Workshop Manual section 5 page 15 (Lift and support the fuel tank...)

Yes, I think its a mistake to rely on others to see us, even those that see us will occasionally not notice us and then there are some that think motorcycles have to give way to cars. Self preservation is the name of the game, if you don't look out for you don't expect others to. The thing that really annoys me, mostly power rangers but others too, is those who rev bomb to warn of their presence which the average motorist either totally ignores or sees it as an act of aggression. A light touch on the brakes and a short toot toot on the horn is so much more effective, safer and why you have a horn.

...If you want to be more visible get a pair of DRL's ....... they are proper bright

...and, of course, no way as blinding as the 55w main beam headlight, no sirree!

I ride as if I'm invisible, way safer. Ultimately, all the safety and visibility gear in the world is only as good as other road users ability to look AND see.

Hi Art

Brilliant advice, thanks a lot for sharing. Will check these guides out and see what I can read from my CB.

Appreciate it 🙏.

No need to involve a garage, the joys of owning a CBF1000 is the ease in which it can be serviced and maintained at home by the home mechanic without the need of any special tools or diagnostic equipment. If youíre allowed spanners and you haven't already, you may want to download the Honda Workshop and Owners Manuals here.

If the PGM-FI light comes on this indicates a PGM-FI malfunction, the proper term for the PGM-FI light being Malfunction Indicator Lamp (MIL). The Engine Control Module (ECM) will store a record of the fault as a current Diagnostic Trouble Code (DTC) which can be easily retrieved.

If the PGM-FI light comes on and later goes off this indicates an intermittent fault, that is the fault only exists when the light is on, when the light is off the fault is no longer present but may be of some concern. Again the Engine Control Module (ECM) will store a record of the fault as a stored Diagnostic Trouble Code (DTC) which can be easily retrieved.

Current DTC's are indicated by the presence of the MIL, stored DTC's should be checked for at each service.

Read my earlier post on 'How to read PGM-FI Diagnostic Trouble Codes here'

While you're there you may as well check the ABS system for any stored DTC's, another earlier post 'How to read ABS Diagnostic Trouble Codes here'
