Lights work, but it won't start or sound the horn. Don't know what is going on.

Here's the scoop, just got a 2003 cbr600rr and it would start up just fine when it was cold and the horn did work, but after I would be running it for a bit and stopping to get gas or something and trying to start it, the starter wouldn't turn over enough to start the bike. I replaced the rectifier and now the horn doesn't work and it won't ever start. The starter turns over for a fraction of a second but then it all resets. I tried unplugging the rectifier and tried the horn and starter and the same exact thing happens. I have no burnt out fuses (unless there are others than just in the fuse box) and the lights all work. I am stumped.

Any ideas? Thanks.

battery might have crapped out. charge it and see if it gives you any more trouble. if it does, get a new one.

Sounds like a dead battery to me.

To save you some money...try hitting up browning buck unless you wanted to pay 172.00 for the Yuasa battery. There are other options out there for a cheaper battery, look into the forum.
