Fuel cut off relay? bike won't start!
The bike: 2005 CBR 600RR no mods except Scorpio alarm and slip on exhaust. neither of which installed by me.
Story: The bike was running fine, then on the way to the girlfriends house it cut out, i coasted onto a side street and let it cool down for about a min. and then it started back up. After getting to girlfriends house i shut it off dropped something off and then got back on to start it up. It didn't fire and the red led came on after i just flipped the key to on. but i let it sit in the shade for about 5 min and then it started. Rode home and shut it off and for some reason i noticed that when i shut it off using the kill switch on the left handle bar the red light go off so. i tired to start it again and no luck, just cranking and cranking and cranking, so then i let it cool down for about 15 mins and then go back out expecting it to start because the trend seemed to be let it cool down and then it would start. Well not so, I flip the key to the on position led and the red led is on constant and when i flip the kill switch to the "stop the engine" position the red led goes off but the "FI" light goes on. and now with the key on and flipping the kill switch i hear a relay on the left side of the bike clicking.
Symptoms: When bike is turned on, the MIL light and oil light come on. If it's a cold start it will usually start right up, if you've ridden it recently it will just crank and crank and crank. It cuts out mid ride sometimes but usually only after it's got real warm (205 215ish) as soon as you shut it off the MIL and oil light come on.
PLEASE HELP i have a Differential equations test tomorrow so i can't devote a lot of time to it right away but i REALLY want to get this fixed soon.
