I need help...badly, starter going mad!!!
I got a 2003 CBR 600 RR, that I really enjoy. But recently I am hearing this noise by the engine. It goes away when I clutch in so thought that it was related to the clutch.
But I have always thought it was wierd when I put the bike in neutral, it starts up by itself (also when in first when clutch is pressed in). I dont need to push the start button, which is wierd. But I am hearing a noise by the engine side, and inspected it today. I stopped the bike, and flipped the engine stop button over, and started it, and noise disappeared. And also, my headlights doesnt work, only the middle light and the high beam flash button (dont know what its called), and read that the headlight wiring is by the start button, and opened that up, but it was ok.
But today I think I figured it out. When you push the start button, the headlights doesnt stay on because it saves power. So in that way, the starter motor must stay on all the time to me, as I have no headlights, and the bike starts itself, and the noise, and when I stop it I hear the starter continue for a second.
So my question is, do some of you know how to start looking for this problem? Could it be a starter relay thats gone mad or..?
I really appreciate all the help I can get, its not so big community in Norway, so I will be thankfull of every reply I get :)
And sorry for the english being borat like ;)
