ANOTHER "bike wont start thread"
So i've been rebuilding my bike since June, and finally, it's almost done. I t-boned a truck and had to replace the front end of my bike.
Off and on, i would start the bike up. It would start right up, only problem was a dead battery.
One day, i started it up and it turned right over. I ran it for a minute, and out of nowhere, it died. I tried to start it for a couple seconds, but i didn't want to flood it or kill the battery, so i stopped. This was probably a month ago.
Flash forward to now .. my bike (03 RR) is SOO close to getting done. I knew the 03's had problems with the rectifier, and my showed symptoms, o i replaced it with an 05 (this was after it died, as said in the paragraph above). I also just put in a brand new battery. I hook it all up, mount the BAS where it should be (i do not believe i did this the last time it started it up. It was on the ground on it's side), get the harness all plugged in (other then a blue turn signal clip and a few very minor other clips), and press the start button. It's cranking really really hard (not giving any gas), but won't turn over. I give it a little gas, and the noise changes a bit, but still wont start.
Not wanting to kill my battery, i stop.
Any ideas? I'm scared this is gonna hold me down for awhile, when my bike is sooooooooooooooo ... sooo close to being back on the road :(
