Question about 2001 Yamaha YZF-R1
I have a 2001 R1. I pulled up and see smoke coming from under my seat, now i have no electrics apart from my dip beam and my alarm still works and bleeps when the bike is touched. It will not start at all or even try and turn over. The battery was red hot and i noticed the rev counter was going mad.
I will check fuses, but will i need a new battery and relays?
Sounds like the rectifier has gone bad, overcharging the battery and cooking wires. Your best bet here is to take it to a dealer rather than risking putting in new parts then frying them the first time you ride the bike again.
