Question about Honda CBR 600 RR Motorcycles
So pretty much I was doing a wheelie and as soon as I came down the bike started to bog and had no throttle response and then completely shut off on me. I went to start it again and it acted as if the battery had no power because I even took the seat off and all I would hear is one single click every time I hit the starter button. The thing that worries me is that this has happened before where the battery loses its charge and all I would do is bump start it. This time I can't even bump start it. I'm really worried I did something to the engine but I don't understand why the bike would completely shut off and have a dead battery. It's been at my buddies house sitting on a charger for a couple of hours so if he goes to start it and it starts up what's the issue? and if he goes to start it and it still doesn't start what would be the issue in that case?
If it starts after a charge from a battery charger, then you need to check the charging system on the machine. If the rectifier has failed it will kill your battery. If the regulator has failed it won't charge properly and could again kill your battery. But, you should check all the connections on your bike as they aren't designed to take the stress caused by the post wheelie bang. If you want to wheelie then I would suggest you buy an off-roader, they are designed to take punishment of this type. If you watch Rossi, Lorenzo and Crutchlow you will notice that they do everything they can to stop their machines from doing wheelies.

SOURCE: Rectifier Problem
If the battery is charged, its charged..... redpoint5 is right, check the battery when hot... If the battery was not charging i would then look into the charging system, rectifier, etc.... Is it an air cooled engine? Sometimes engines can get a little warped when hot... My grandfather had Corvair vans as taxis that somehow always got overheated, after that they would never start hot. So, he had to leave them running all day.... If your battery is OK you may want to have a look at your starter.... Or, bypass the selenoid with a jumper cable and see if the starter kicks over fine when jumped directly...... That would indicate a bad or worn selenoid.

sounds like the starter solonoid is not working properly if the batt cable got hot enough to smoke that says the batt, is ok and it is ok to jump with car, the solonoid is making the clicking noise and a real hot batt sometimes will make it work, the repair is simple and cheap if you are talented just get a solonoid repair kit three screws 5 min, and you are RIDEING.

dont know if you got the answer from someone who knows what the hell they are talking about cause obviously these idiots never owned a 96 s-rad. the problem is that your engine is loading up with fuel and basically vapor locking the engine witch you could also call severely flooding it. you have a carb problem as do i and if a real mechanic comes on and reads our problem please let us know how to solve... thank you
