Not necessarily, but in many cases. A compression test would be a better way to determine if the head gasket or the valves or piston rings are the problem. If you have a failed head gasket and it is bad in an area that is not near the water jacket, you could have gasket failure without water in the oil. Look on the inside of the filler cap for a foamy or frothy white appearance - that is how you know if there is a water jacket head gasket leak. You might want to verify the coolant level to determine if you are leaking water somewhere.

If the cooling fan does not come on the problem is probably the sensor on the engine or the one on the radiator.If the fan works properly the thermostat could be stuck.

Perhaps you should elaborate further. Is having a Forza 250 F the problem???

I think Donald Gunn is right. I sounds like a lean condition caused by an air leak.

There are 4. Remove the upper faring and you will see the spark plug wires. Just follow em to the engine case.
Good Luck

This is going to come down to your ignition coil/CDL box, ststor, or perhaps you'll be lucky enough that it's only a spark plug wire and you might as well replace the spark plug too since it's so cheap.

Start by doing diagnostic testing and troubleshooting your ignition system, the coil/cdi box for power on both sides(in and out), then the stator if nescessary, but your best tool is a free service manual. Just google "your bike" followed by "service manual pdf" and download a free copy of the factory service manual. I do this for all of the motorized equipment I acquire whether for work or play- you've got to have a manual to know what is what and where it is when it needs to be addressed. You'll get it, have a great day!

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 around $10 and there is a handful of obscure, rare, obsolete, and very old models that are no longer or never were available, 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 for viewing or printing. To download your manual please click on the blue links below. Good luck and have a wonderful day

Honda VFR 800... | Answered on Jan 07, 2019


Hi, Angie, it should be noted that the reasons your check engine light or CEL stays on constantly or flashes and your bike will or will not start and may turnover or not, these conditions will vary from bike to bike depending on the year, make, and model and you should always refer to your owners/service manual for proper diagnostic procedures. It should also be noted that any type of prior work done to the bike or an abnormal event occurrence IE: adding accessories, electrical curiosity or adventures, laying the bike down or crashes, rainstorms or bike washings just before CEL light issues started can be significant hints or aids into tracking down the gremlin, also for 2003 and older models carry the appropriate jumper wire to access fault codes and reduce the risk of being stranded or towed also keep in mind that your CEL comes to life if anything, and I do mean anything isn't 100% with the ECM like parameter spikes. This means that you could be staring at a major repair, or your speedometer sensor is contaminated and needs to be cleaned.
And the usual suspects are:
1. Severely discharged or a damaged battery check the terminals for damage or corrosion, check the battery cables at "BOTH" ends for loose, corroded, or broken connectors, "INSIDE" and outside the cable harness, perform connector wiggle test and check cables with an ohmmeter if necessary, you should have 12.5 volts or more and be able to pass a proper "LOAD" test if necessary, you may have a preliminary reading of 12.5 volts or more but little or zero amperage the battery is faulty and must be replaced, AGM batteries fail in this scenario more so than lead-acid batteries.
2. Faulty charging system.
3. Faulty system sensor some models have up to 40 sensors
4. Faulty safety switches: run/off, ignition, clutch lever, neutral, side stand, tip over, fuel, and or their connections.
5. The engine got wet where it didn't like to get wet.
6. Faulty ignition circuit spark plugs, coils, cables etc.
7. Broken wire or worn insulation exposing wire to a ground situation especially inside wire harness at tight bends around fairing brackets, under dash panels, under fuel tanks over cylinder heads etc. Many harnesses are open on the ends that will allow water to enter and accumulate at v-bends.
Dielectric grease and contact cleaner are your best friends for wire/cable/harness connectors, look for corroded, broken, or loose pins/sockets. Run speedometer diagnostics and check for generated fault codes.
