Need Help - 1998 CBR600F3
My daughter's boyfriend, good kid, just bought a 1998 CBR600F3. It shut off on him on the way home from purchase. I've committed to helping him with it. Anyhooo.... This thing is a carbureted bike with a fuel pump and a petcock on the tank. Can someone, please, explain this setup to me? Why the pump to feed carbs? The tank doesn't appear to sit below carb level...
The bike acts like it's not getting fuel. I just started to look into it and noted the setup. I'm digging into it tomorrow. If it's not getting fuel, can I connect the tank directly to the fuel line to the carbs for a shop test to, at least, isolate the issue?
Thanks in advance for any help.
