Ok this is my 2nd post so forgive me if i'm not posting in the right section
but here it is:

I bought an 05 CBR600RR saturday.

It ran when I bought it because I made my friend test it out it ran after i brought it home 208 miles later because I let my friends and family listen to it.

The next day which was sunday I went to turn it on and it started for like 10 seconds, I gave it a quick rev to hear her beautiful pur and then she died.

Next I tried to rep. start it back up and it would not start up, the fuel pump comes on the lights come on and all electrical stuff comes on -

I Have no idea about fuel injected bikes or bikes in general I only know about carb. fourwheelers and dirtbikes so this is a whole new world to me i haven't even rode it yet.

Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated. & before anyone says to read the forums i have read a majority of the same problem as i had but there lights wouldn't come on and mine will

I checked the "BAS" or the thing between the headlights and it was plugged in - I don't know where to look for anything else, seeing as how i don't know anything about this bike yet.

Thank you very much for taking the time out to read my long rant! & for any help you may provide

Thumb Switch??
I checked the kill switch and turned it to both positions & everytime i pressed the on button it just turns over constantly it's the feelings you get when you need to choke something with a carb.. it just constantly turns over and doesn't start

If you are sure it's not the emergency/kill switch, then keep checking other "basic" items since you are new to bikes.

Are you trying to start it in neutral ? Are you holding the clutch lever in ? Or, is the bike in gear when you at trying to start it? Is the kickstand in the down position ?


Is the battery still good (holds a charge? connections tight? grounds good?) and lastly, is there still plenty of fuel left in the tank ?


Never hurts to rule out the "easy stuff" first...



Also, have you tried holding the throttle wide open while trying to start it ?

the kickstand is down but it is in neutral, it has 2 bars of gas, the battery is still good it has real good power till i try to start it about 20 times then it goes dead and i have to recharge it and start back from square one..

Only thing i done is put some fuel stabil in the gas tank would that have messed up the fuel injectors or anything? i have no idea about this so please don't think thats a stupid question lol

could it be the spark plugs??? or something else that won't let it ignite or something thats depriving it of fuel? or maybe where the fuel pump has kicked on so many times i've flooded it??

ok...

1) the gas guage is often off by a bit, some times a lot (i have a flashing bar, and only fit 3 gallons in before im over flowing...), so make sure you do in deed have gas

2) if its trying to start, but acting flooded, do this, get the bike ready to start, hold throttle WIDE OPEN, and press the starter

let off as soon as she fires, this is how you clear a flooded FI bike motor.

It is only one of two things electric or fuel. If you have gone through everything and have checked all the basics you will have to get deeper into it.

Do you smell gas out the exhaust? If you do then it is getting fuel through the injectors. If trying to relieve the flooding by holding the throttle wide open and it still doesn`t start it is electrical. Look for spark.

Once you get beyond the basics make sure your 100% sure you want to go further without the help of a shop. You will have to start disassembling the bike to go further. Do you have a service manual?

I've not noticed the smell of gas, haven't paid attention to that, i will tomorrow when i get home from work, i'm going to try holding it wide open to clear it like someone suggest if that doesn't work then idkwtftodo lol where at the spark plugs located at incase i want to change them?

after my bike wouldn't start i decided to take my fairings off.. anything else i should do to it while everything is pretty much accessible? ( I took them off so i could polish on her, my garage isn't heated so its like 20 degrees in it)

Free bike to a loving home. haha..

Getting to the spark plugs is a pain. It involves dropping the radiator out of the way at which point you can try to squeeze up under and behind the frame to pop the caps off. Then you'll need a socket with an extension as the plugs are a good 4-6" (if I recall correctly) down into the block.

Try everything else first. Add gas, check battery (try jumping it if you need to), check fuses, etc. Doesn't sound like a kill switch issue if your fuel pump is priming.


What's the mileage on your bike? Coincidentally, both my friend and I had a similar issue at the same time when our 05 and 06 CBRs hit right around 10,000 miles. Ended up being fouled plugs. Cleaned the plugs up, put them back in and it fixed the problem.
Odd since both bikes were babied, well-maintained, and had run high quality pump gas from day one.


Good luck.

Did the fuel pump prime? Do you here the whine when you turn you run/stop and ignition key on? It may have started the first time because there was still pressure in your fuel lines before the pump shut off.

let's get back to basics....

it is that cold out and do you know when the battery was last replaced? my guess is ur battery is shot. even w/ a low battery the bike can attempt to crank but wont turn over.

i am thinking this may be the case especially since how many times you have tried to start the bike as of late.

True I read that but I am thinking of how crazy cars w/ dead batteries can be. Granted, a bike is not a car. I have had two faulty car batteries in my life that wouldnt hold a charge. Car started. Drove down the street. Died.

At very least, it is worth throwing it on a tender or getting the battery tested. Very cold weather does strange crap.

Go right to looking for spark plugs. They are a pain to get to. Since the plastic is off you have half the battle won......
