I have an 08 RR and I just started having starting problems... The bike really doesn't have many miles on it (1400 miles)...
Anyways... The bike was in a wreck and I put it all back together. I charged the battery and then rode on several occassion totalling up to about 300-400 miles with no problems starting. Then I didn't ride for a month or two and I came back and the bike turned 2 times, and then blanked out. It looked like the battery died. I took out the battery and let it charge. After charging I went and rode again for another few times.
I let the bike sit for about a week, and I hop on and the bike barely cranked but it started. I rode to my buddy's place about 4 miles away and stopped the bike. When I tried starting it again a few minutes later, it cranked 2 times and then died. I had to have my buddy help me push start her. I rode around with him and then went back home. The next day I try starting her and she barely turned but eventually started. I started getting worried because I didn't want to have the ordeal where I would need to fill up for gas and then wouldn't be able to start again... So I took out the battery and let it charge. When I started the bike again after charging, it started with a lot of energy and no problems. I rode for about 10 minutes and go to the gas station to fill up. When I tried starting again, it cranked 2 times and then died...
I'm guessin battery problems... But do you guys think it might be my rectifier or alternator?
