General Maintenance, Servicing, and Mechanical / Re: New chain & sprockets

I've heard tell of marking the gearshift arm against the gearshift spindle before and I'm not sure why this would be necessary. There are two indent marks, one on the arm and one one the spindle, just note how they line up before removal.

Awesome advice, thank you guys.

Yes I'm happy I should be OK doing it but every bike can have its own little tricks it's worth knowing. Marking the gear shift arm is a great tip and the order of the washers.

Before you remove the gear shift arm from the spindle , make a mark on each ( felt pen dot works) so that they line up correctly when the arm goes back on.

The CBF is no different to many other mo'cycles, if you've done this job before without issue you'll be fine. A piece of wood through the rear swinging arm works to lock the back wheel up when removing the front sprocket bolt, I prefer the rear brake and crack the rear sprocket nuts before removing the rear wheel, they are tight and can be stubborn. Where you need to pay most attention is linking the chain (pressing the link plate and flaring the chain rivets) check the chain manufacturers specification for the rivet flair as it varies from chain to chain and manufacturer to manufacturer. If you remove the gear shift pivot bolt pay attention to the assembled order (washer and dust seals) and refit with grease to the pivot and a medium strength threadlock on the threads taking care not to mix the grease and threadlock.

Top tips- Grease the gearbox output shaft splines before fitting the front sprocket, check your work (chain slack/alignment, front sprocket bolt, rear sprocket nuts, chain link rivets etc) after 500 to 1,000 miles.

Thanks for the reply. 👍

Sounds like a good method, think I tried it before possibly on a ninja.

With the bike on centre stand I use a piece of wood laid across top of the swing arm to lock the rear wheel when undoing the front sprocket. I think it's only about 54nm tight so will release fairly easily.

2006 ABS model

Just a quick one, I'm about to fit a new chain & sprockets for the first time on the CBF (done it on other bikes fefore), any tips please and I take it it needs to be in gear to remove the front sprocket bolt?

Thanks

Lighting, Electrical, and Wiring / Re: Fuel pump not working

If the fuel pump doesn't work when jumping it with 12v (Y/R positive & Bl/W or Bl negative) suspect the pump is faulty.

If the fuel pump does work by jumping it with 12v suspect the Fuel System Circuit. Working from the power source to the pump check and test: 10A starter fuse; 20A FI IGN fuse; engine stop switch; right handlebar wiring 9 pin brown connector; lean angle sensor; engine stop relay; fuel cut off relay; fuel pump 3 pin black connector and all the associated circuit wiring including the A4, A5 & A21 connections to the Engine Control Module (ECM) .

It can be a complicated diagnosis and a multimeter will be your only friend, work through the list step by step and you'll get there. If you’re allowed spanners and you haven't already, you may want to download the Honda Workshop Manual here. The sections on the 'FUEL SYSTEM (PGM FI)' and 'LIGHTS, METERS & SWITCHES' should be an interesting read.

If that 'CBF1000TA' is a SC58 I've posted a CBF1000-A colour wiring diagram here or if its a SC64 I've posted a CBF1000-FA colour wiring diagram here, one or other you'll find useful.
