Bike Not Starting when Hot (After Riding) 03 CBR 600RR
03 CBR 600RR
Searched the topic before, found some replies, but no one seemed to find or at least reply back that the problem was fixed.
WHen I'm done riding and I cut the bike off for a few minutes (Ex. getting fuel) and go to start it back up it has trouble starting and seems as if the battery has a low voltage. My lights and speedometer lights up find and cycles when I turn the key, but when I hit the starter button it will try to start, but gets fainter the more I try.
At this point I either push start it to which it starts up quickly or wait for it to cool down for 15-20 minutes which is a downer. I'm pretty good when it comes to repairs/maintenance, but am clueless about electrical work. My battery is only a season old and it shows full voltage when just sitting.
I heard about the 03reg/rec being a issue and thought about replacing it first but just want to get an opinion before I buy something and it doesn't correct the issue.
If anyone can give me a direction I would appreciate it.
