I Ride my RR4 quite frequently and have had it serviced by a Honda dealership about a month ago. The bike has just past 20k and has been absolutely fine until about a week ago when I replaced the battery from the dealer again.

1st problem to happen was Intermittent. I found that every now and then when I accelerated hard the bike seemed to judder almost like something is stuck half open. It felt that I was not receiving all the power available and then it would kick back in again.

2nd problem was today when I got back from a ride. I left the bike out to cool down and it was raining but when I went out 2-3 hours later to put it back in the garage the bike wouldn't start. This has happened quite a few times whereby I have had to bump it to get it going while I have been out. This time though the battery was completely dead so I have taken it off to put it on charge.

3rd problem was that when I tried to move the bike back after removing the battery, it would move around 2 yards and then the back wheel would lock up. Treble checked that the bike was not in gear. In gear the bike would not move nowhere near as much. I even pulled the clutch in to try to move the bike and once again a few yards and the wheel would lock up.

I really don't know where to start apart from the battery. anyone had any of these symptoms. All suggestions/advice appreciated.

Thank you

First... make sure the connections to the battery are tight. As far as moving it... once it stops moving... you need to lift the bike on stands and find out if its front wheel or rear. Maybe look for bent brake rotors but they would have to be really bad to keep you from pushing the bike.

All sorted now. The battery I originally bought from the dealer and fitted was faulty so I took it back and exchanged it. Put the new one in and hey presto all the juddering and hesitation has gone when accelerating hard.

As for the Rear wheel locking up I feel like a bit of an idiot. lol :banghead:. Even though I thought I accounted for all bolts when changing the battery it appeared that one had decided fall and wedge itself onto one of the teeth on the front sprocket. how this happened I do not know and what are the chances!

Anyways, Took her out for a spin 2day and its back to its normal self. I'm loving every second of it! thanks for the suggestions guys.....
