I bought a new battery, and my old battery was still good. Didn't fix the problem, Low end was 10 and he said he was surprised the battery was still good after 4 years. Bought a new one just to try, and It's still the same thing.
NEVER DISCONNECT THE BATTERY WITH THE BIKE RUNNING!
It is a very good way to blow something up, including your r/r, ecu and gauges.
The battery soaks up a lot of transient voltages that the r/r doesn't catch.
The bike will not produce enough voltage to charge the battery till around 3.5k RPM, it will not produce enough to run the bike until around 1.8k rpm. Thats why you test the charging system at 5k RPM - its within its operating range.
If your battery is 4 years old then its probably stuffed.
Also check your engine stop relay, swap it with the fan one, it supplies power to the fuel pump (via the fuel cut relay) and the coils, if the contacts are a little burnt that may explain the problem as well, if swapping the engine stop relay doesn't work then try the fuel cut relay.
My bike does the same thing. It happens all the time. So I pull over and shut it off. Let it sit for 5 mins. Start up and good to go. Well just til I get to where I need to go. Any luck on ur bike yet.
Not sure if you figured this out yet (9 years later.. lol), but I've noticed a trend with the RR's having this issue..
You mentioned that it happens when you hit a bump..
If you look under the seat you will see there's a fuse next to a relay by your battery..
Check all the wires to make sure they are not loose or broken..
My bike did the same thing and turns out it was simply a loose wire back there causing the bike to open the circuit from the battery.
It would only happen intermittently and especially when I would hit bumps..
I'm sure it's probably fixed by now as I'm posting in 2019 from the original post in 2010..
I'm sure if anyone else is having this issue.. What I mentioned above would be a good spot to check first before deciding to pull your tank..
Was riding the other day and my 2005 cbr600rr bogged down and died. Had to push it home 2 miles. I've checked for spark and has a great spark. Fuel pump primes and the injectors fire. I checked the kickstand switch, it is good. I can get the bike to run for a moment with half throttle while...
I am new to the forum but decided to join as I have been having an issue with the bike conking out whilst I was riding it and then wouldn't restart and managed to get it going so hopefully it may help someone stranded like I was.
I am a novice to fixing but had a go (as I didn't want...
So I have on 06 600rr, completely stock besides aftermarket exhaust. I stay up on all the normal maintenance. I usually only notice it in 3rd gear+ but if I'm on it full throttle when I get to about 9000-11000 rpms i suddenly hit the rev limiter(can hear the engine redline for sure) and I loose...
Changed out the fuel pump on my bike with a Quantum brand pump. Got everything back together and now it won't start. The fuel pump will prime and the motor will turn over just fine but won't fire up. Any suggestions?
