Hi, Mike before diagnosing any brake light issue always check the bulb and fuse first for integrity a brake light staying on is usually caused by the front brake light switch, which is mechanical, not disengaging. On early models moving the throttle control housing closer to the front brake master cylinder is the main fix. On late models, the switch gets tweaked and needs to be realigned. A brake light that does not come on when the brake lever is applied can be caused by a faulty switch or no continuity in the wiring at the switch. The rear brake light switch is hydraulic and it is extremely rare to malfunction in a closed circuit condition causing the brake light to stay on. Usually, rear brake light switch issues are caused by no brake pedal free play or a sticky rear master cylinder piston. A brake light that does not come on when the rear brake pedal is depressed can be caused by a faulty switch, air contamination in the brake line, or no continuity in the wiring at the switch. Finally, most tail light wiring harnesses run under the rear fender held in place by spot welded clips. Worn out rear shocks or lowered suspension can bottom out causing the rear tire to come in contact with the wiring harness, rubbing the insulation off, exposing the bare metal inner core, allowing it to break or short out.

i assume you mean you run it with the choke closed?? if so i would think some carb passages are blocked and not flowing fuel correctly. either really clean the carb passages or just simply replace the carb

Hi, Anonymous the vast majority of service, parts fiche, and owners manuals on the internet are "FREE" to download and all service manuals contain wiring diagrams in the back pages. The rest usually charge a modest fee of $15 and there is a handful of obscure, rare, obsolete, and very old models that are no longer or never were available and some were never printed in English. The Indian and Philippine markets are usually in E-book format only, for these rare occasions I shall look on eBay and find the cheapest one available. Most of the manuals will cover your exact make, model, and year otherwise one will be provided that comes as close as possible to your bike and will have most of the same info that an exact manual would have. If there is no $ sign after the manual link it is free to download.

Hi, Stacy ECM-ICM-ECU is a small computerized electrical component commonly referred to as the "Black Box". It receives data from various sensors and calculates when spark should occur. Each Black Box is specifically programmed for the year-make-model of a particular motorcycle and will only work on that bike. There may be a few that share the same part number with other years or models but you would have to look that information up in a parts catalog or "FICHE"

ya gotta ask yourself WHY do I want to do that?
Even if it is possible, it is a giant leap backwards.
I will guess that it is not possible unless you want to build the parts required. But it may still not be possible.

Batt must b 12.6v no less..check alternator connection or the chargn wire. Make sure carb n compression r normal. Put some marine fuel cleanr in tank

Honda... | Answered on Oct 21, 2019


No, it's most likely a fuel related issue. First make sure you don't have the kill switch engaged.
Check the fuel filter and replace if old or dirty.
Then with the fuel petcock turned on open the drain screws on the carbs to be sure clean fuel flows from both of them. If it doesn't you have a blockage somewhere and disassembly of the fuel system and or carburetors may be called for. Start tracing the fuel path to see how far it is getting.You might have rust, water or other crud in your tank plugging things up.
