I know I know, yet ANOTHER won't start thread. Anyways, I have an 05 600rr. The last few times that I rode it before this winter, it acted kinda "sluggish" to start. You know, the slow turn over a few times and then finally starting. Well, I normally go out about once every week or so to start it during the winter and let it run just to keep a charge on the battery. I did so this winter up until a few weeks ago. I went out, and, the lights all turned on, fuel pump purged, and all that happened when I hit the starter button was the lights went off. Not even a "CLICK". After reading around, I figured since the battery is close to 3 years old, that's the issue. But, I bought a charger first and charged it over night. Took it out to the bike, re-installed it, and the SAME THING!
At that point I was SURE it must be a bad battery. That was until tonight. I just wanted to get it running so I tried "bump" starting it. after 3 or 4 tries with it NOT working, I was tired and gave up. I pushed it back into the garage and the key was still on. Here's where it gets confusing......I accidently bumped the started button, and BOOM! Fired right up!? WTF? What is the problem do you think? Please help! I just don't want to get stranded now that it is working. I shut it off and started it back up without any issues too by the way! Thanks for ANY help!!!!!!!!!!
