Ok, next question, if the battery is not suffecient can I prove this by "jumping" the bike to see if I can get the starter to turn? I know not to turn on the car when I do this before I have eight ppl jump on me.
Im trying to diagnose the problem before throwing more money at it. If the battery is insufficient. I am probably going to return the battery as after doing some hw found that part number as a replacement for the 91-94 cbr. That makes sense as they dont have all our gucci FI injection systems that draw alot.
And T, please read and understand my problem before throwing generic responses at me, the starter will not turn. And inorder for a FI engine to flood it would actually have to be cranking and then not firing, an entirely different issue.
GGAC, I read 12.9 volts and 9.5 ish when I hit the starter button, which after doing more research, found this to be not enough.
Demented, thats the answer I was looking for, a threshold value to work from, like the minimum cca being 150.
Thanks for the suggestions, am out of town over the weekend so wont have a chance to fiddle with it till Tuesday, but I am still thinking bad/insuffecient battery, as even if my starter was bad, would not drain my bike and cause it to die while riding.
