Starting issues??? (problem solved = Dead Battery )
Alright.....history...this bike (06 600rr) has eaten 3 rectifiers. This isn't showing the same symptoms as the last 3 times.
I can start off my day and the bike will run fine. I ride an hour to work all in the 8-10k region and then the bike sits all day til I go home the same way.
The last few weeks it has been having trouble starting. I would press the start button and it would dim everything and even almost kill itself to start....but it would start, but the clock and trip odo would be reset. At first I thought it was my neon lights, so I disconnect those. Clean and check the battery terminals and ride for a few days...the problem still persisted. I hooked up the battery to a tender to make sure it was charged...and it said it was....but the problem still persisted.
Even after I tried to start the bike, it died, hooked up the tender and it still said it was charged. I hadn't touched any electrical components on the bike in 12k miles....the shop did when they replaced the last rectifier. So I took apart the bike and made sure every wire I found had a good connection ad wasn't frayed...the problem still persists.
I even replaced the battery for the heck of it....no good.
