The Bad News
: My bike refuses to start after being garage stored throughout the majority of the winter. Throughout its storage time, it was nearly stolen 3 times. The cables near the ignition were fucked with quite a lot all 3 times. So I ended up moving the bike into my apartment's living room.
The Good News
: I searched the forum from head to toe, in order to diagnose most possible symptoms and have assembled a good series of possible causes via similar threads I found.
1) There is no fuel pump whining noise whenever you flick the kill switch.
2) The fan stopped working shortly before the bike was put in storage. (Most likely in need of a new relay?)
3) The battery is just about drained from my attempts to troubleshoot.
I was able to clean up the ignition wires and patch them all back together properly right before
I stored it away. It started just fine! :) However, months later (through the winter) it was a no-go.
Bike: 2004 CBR 600RR
The cluster and all other aspects work (Headlights, horn, break light, hazards, etc)
Whenever I press my ear up against the left side of the bike I hear a "CLICK" sound when the kill switch is turned on. Does that mean the relay is doing its job? Or am I making **** up? ^^
Ask away! And I'll include pictures and everything.
