03 600rr very slow cranking, won't start
Couldn't figure out the issue, so any input is appreciated.
I have an 03 rr with about 15k miles, when i turn the key to the on position, the pump primes, and all the lights are strong. Then, i hit the ignition and the motor cranks over VERY slow, but it cranks. If i hold down the ignition button, it will continue to crank very slowly. The bike will start with a push start and run fine afterward though, just not the ignition.
When i first had the problem, I thought my battery was just out of juice, so i push started it and rode it around for an hour or two, thinking that it should recharge. When i shut it off, and tried to turn it back on from the ignition 5 minutes later, it tried to crank, but sounded dead, so I had to push start it again.
I thought my battery might be dead, but i took it out, but put it on a trickle charger, and it said it was already charged. When the bike is on the on position, all the lights are coming on strong, so I think it really is fully charged. I thought it was the rectifier from the recharging issue, so I just replaced that today, but the bike is still cranking over slowly.
Now i'm thinking it might be the starter itself, does anybody have any input before I spend more money buying parts I don't need? lol
