Question about 2006 Yamaha YZF-R1 SP

R1 start problem

After I paid for my new R1 at the dealership, I went outside to start it up and leave and I would press the start button and let off and the bike would not start. Ok, they said to hold the starter button down a little longer, well by now the battery was dead. They said they took it in and changed out the dead battery with a new one. Present day, I've had the bike for about a month and when the bike has not been started for a few days (rain, snow, etc) the bike will not start. I hold down the starter button a little longer just as suggested by the guys at the dealership and members on this board. even after holding it down a bit longer, the motor just cotinuously turns over but never starts. Low and behold after two or three tries, the battery goes dead. Once the bike is started and ridden, starting it is no problem at all. It cranks the first try. Is this a battery problem??

I had the same problem. After throwing all kinds of money at it, like a new battery, new relay, checking the fuses and many other things. I finally took it to a great shop (M Racing in Glendora, CA) and they discovered it was the starter brushes. Now Yamaha sells a rebuild kit for the 06 R1 starters but it's on back order all the way to Japan. Turns out Yamaha Japan knows about this defect and word is it's going to take months before they start producing the rebuild kit again. I'm sure there will not be a "starter recall" as that would cost Yamaha way to much money which is what the worlds all about, right? Anyway, my starter was rebuilt by a mechanic that rebuilds starters and I haven't had no problems with it. Hope this helps and whatever you do, don't take your bike to Montclair Yamaha. Dealerships charge way to much money and don't get the service or quility of work we all deserve.
Be Safe!!!!

Sounds like the battery is draining when the bike is not run...I would take it back to the dealer and let them sort it out
