With the battery charged fully. And the fuel turned on pull the choke out and try starting and one it does push the choke back in so you don't flood the engine.

I got a 2008 cbr 600 rr I put 3 new battery on it and they keep going dead they are kinda cheap battery my bike will run abt 2 hour on a new battery then it goes dead and wont push start and it makes a...


Put a charger on the battery for two or three hours. Now start the bike up and use a voltmeter to measure the voltage across the two battery terminals while the engine is running around 2000 rpm. The meter should read around 14 volts. If not, the charging system needs to be checked. If the charging system is working properly then yes, something is draining the battery. You will need to check all the wiring and switches to locate the source.

After fitting new battery on my fjr 1300 Drove a long journey stoped and it would not start as if the battery was dead. left it for a while and it started with loads of power in the battery any thoughts...


Have your charging system looked at, first do a simple multimeter test, get a multimeter, switch it on to Volts, start bike and see what it reads, put multimeter prongs directly on battery, very simple, if its below 12V you have a charging problem. If your battery is new and your charging system is faulty the bike will start and go, but when you switch it off the battery will be dead because it has not been charging. When you let a dead battery sit for a while it will charge itself a little, enough to start the bike up. Have you ever had a flat torch or mobile phone, it will die when battery is flat but when you try and switch them on again after a little while, they will work a little and die again, same with bikes, cars etc. All the best, Forever Two Wheels :)

CHARGE BATTERY, THEN START BIKE UP. AFTER RIDING


Sounds like you are not getting a charge from the alternator. You need to check battery voltage with a meter with the engine off, key off. Then again with it running, and the voltage should increase. If not, it's not charging.

Charged battery.showed charged right away.bike wont start unless


Hi and welcome to FixYa,

The description "...series of clicks..." is significant. The battery is not putting out enough current to turn the starter motor. The best way to determine the battery condition is to have it load tested. However, considering eveything else, it would almost always be a failed or about to fail battery.

Incidentally, the alarm has been designed to have minimal current drain when in standby.

Good luck and thank you for asking FixYa.

Bike runs but when i try to start it the battery is dead


Do a voltage test at the battery to see how it is charging, it sounds like it is not... You should charge at 14.5 volts. Start the bike with the voltmeter connected and see what it does for voltage drop and see how it recovers after it is started. If it doesn't come up in voltage possible regulator rectifier or worse case bad stator.

My bike runs real good and starts easy but just


Sound like the magneto is not charging the battery properly, and your bike is then running off the battery while running, sending it flat.

To test this, start the bike, then remove the battery from the bike, it should be able to run without the battery connected. Make sure the positive lead does not touch metal on the bike.

Using a multimeter, check that you have 13.8 volts at the battery while the bike is running, anything less than this and your bike is not charging the battery properly.

Cbr 900rr, bike just stopped running while riding, wont start?


Almost certainly a bad battery. Put a voltmeter on the battery and check it while trying to start the bike. If it drops to less than 10v the battery is dead.

Starting problem


Sounds like you might have cooked the battery. Try with a new one, start the bike and see how it runs. Hopefully you didnt fry anything else.
