HELP*** bike keeps dying
i have a 04 cbr600RR w/ 3,500 miles
so i was pretty sure i had a "infamous" rectifier/regulator problem. the battery will die if i try to start it when the bike is hot. i.e. getting gas. bike is real hot , shut it off to get gas and go to start back up and it dies. or going into a store for a few mins. i thought it was the regultor. i ordered one, put it on this morning. bike started fine checked voltage at idle and reving. all good. drove it around town for 10 mins and while i was cruising i go to shift and the battery dies as i pull in the clutch. so i coasted to a stop and i couldnt start it. battery just died. im going nuts with this thing
i get it back home in a pick up truck. the battery reads 12.4 volts but wont start. it cranks once and it just clicks and dies.
so i have replaced the regulator, i had the bike on a battery tender the past few days so it was fully charged, and since the battery is reading 12v i dunno if its the battery or something else like a fuse or something.
i would appreciate any help! its driving me crazy and its a huge pain in the ass.
