07 CBR600RR Trouble cranking over....sorry, sorry, another one i know.
so background...bought the bike used around mid-may with approx 4.5 on the odo. from a dealership. the bike had been sitting for awhile so the battery was dead, so they charged it before i took it off the lot. didnt have any problems with the bike/battery/charging system/starting it up until around a week or 2 ago when my dad tried to start it up and left the killswitch "on" for 2 or 3 nights.
anyways, tried cranking the bike up...gauge cluster turns on fine, speedo sweeps, fuel pump primes, kickstand down, bike in neutral, clutch in...etc. bike didnt even attempt to crank, just clicked and the gauge cluster flickered on and off.
anyways, charged the OEM yuasa battery with my tender overnight, measured 12.4 volts off the bike, cranked the bike up perfect. next morning, same problem. battery measured 12.4 still...bump started it, still measured 12.4 with the bike on.
still having the same problem i bought a used OEM battery on ebay from a bike that had 1k on the odo.
voltage checks out good with bike off/on. and bike starts up, but now instead of it cranking over instantly...it takes about 5 seconds to fully start up. it cranks really slow at first, then gradually gets faster until it finally starts...
tryin to narrow down the problem here, not sure where to start...R/R possibly? can anyone help me out?
thanks in advance guys, i know youll get to the bottom of my problem.
no mods, completely stock except for frame sliders and flush mount turn signals that were on the bike already when i bought it. had a small driveway fall with ZERO damage to anything outside, tiny almost unnoticable scratch on my left FS...im thinking possibly i damaged the R/R.
but anyways. sorry for the long post. just wanted to give u guys info. THANKS.
