Hate to start another thread on this one,
But not all cases are the same and I'm not getting answer I'm after on similar posts
I have a 05 cbr600rr,
A couple of weeks ago the battery started losing life and after having to clutch start a couple of times I replaced the Battery.
Earlier this week when starting it was struggling, 2 days later battery flat. I road my by bike to work and had to clutch it no worries! On the way home in the dark the head lamp blew.
I'm not an auto-electrician but by that stage alarm bells were ringing. When I got home I took battery out put rectifiers/ regulators and stators and how to test them.
In the morning I put battery back in bike and it fired up nicely, but I didn't have multimeter to do any further tests. So I go to work buy one on the way the home. Put the multimeter on the battery it reads 13.4v, go to start it and it turns over and no love.
Fuel primes up, all the fuses are good (behind lhs fairing and the 2 behind the battery)
I live on a slight hillside so I tried clutch starting it with no luck both using 2nd & 3rd gear. It did once back fire
So i here's my conclusions
- Battery draining and blown headlamp means: Rectifier/ regulator needs replacing
- It backfired and pump goes so it's getting fuel
- Tested stator and it showed up nil resistance
- No spark
My question is, where do I go next before going to mechanics and parting with money I don't have?
And also are my assumptions correct?
Any help would be great, me and my Cbr have had a great relationship up until now and I just want things back to way they were
