    same happen to me. how did you fix?

  • andy roo Aug 11, 2012

    Figured it out! an internal short circuit in the battery. It only shows itself when a load is applied to the battery, 12.3v when the ignition is off, and 0.5v when the ignition is on. new battery problem solved.

Hi and welcome to the site,

Initially, have you checked the 30A main fuse? It would be inside the starter relay. To locate the starter relay, follow the cable from the battery's + terminal.

Good luck and thank you for asking.

Hi, Just bought a 1994 CBRR 900 last week. Battery was poor, tested it and verdict was sulphating. Therefore i replaced it, went for a 5 hour ride yesterday and had the lights on all the time, did over...

It sounds like a problem with the charging circuit. You should be able to ride with your lights on!
The first thing to do is put a multimeter set to DC Volts across the battery with the engine running. Are you seeing more than 13.5 volts? If not there is a charging problem. It could be the regulator/rectifier or the stator windings, or just loose electrical connections if you are very lucky. I have a manual for the 900 Fireblade (I used to have a 98 Blade) so let me know if you need anymore help.

1998 VT 1100 C Shadow Spirit: brand new battery;died after a few hours of ridein...

Could be, replace or have it tested. My old bike a 1998 VT1100CT had a problem with the starter being weak, like the battery was dying. Turned out to be the battery ground wire bolt, going to the back of the starter. It just had a little rust on it, and the bolt broke when I went to remove it. But once replaced the bike starts great, we replaced the battery, took apart the starter tested everything. All for a slightly rusted bolt not making a good ground... Check your Regulator, and any corrosion around the connections!

Could be a bad regulator/rectifier. You need to check to see what the charging system is putting out at idle, and probably 6-7K RPM's. If you have anything above 14V, you most likely have a reg/rec problem. If not, look for a short in the wiring somewhere.

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.

Battery will not keep a charge.

Get a 2 amp charger and charge the battery fo 3 hours or so. While the battery is charging,check the fuses and check the wiring harness connections between the flywheel and the battery.

Start the bike and rev it up. Use a DC voltmeter to check the battery voltage while running. The voltmeter should read 14+ volts. If not then there may be a problem with the stator.

Pleas rate this solution. Thanks!

hi, i have a problem with my cbr 1100 xx 98model with a rough running,spluttering in just highway speeds when im crusing,it starts easy warm or cold and runs fine on idle and runs nice up to 60 kmh and runs fine after 6or7000 rpm and up to rev limiter but difficoult crusing 60 up to relative high speeds in high gears. runs fine in low gears in town. the fuelconsumtion seams to be some high at crusing speed that indicates that is rich mixture but it runs better at crusing speed if i pull the chocke a little that indicates lean mixture, i know this sound stupid but this is true so i was thinking the fuel is not properly mix with the air, more like drops than mix with air maybe? sparkplugs looks nice light brown. carbs and petcock have be cleaned many times, new sparkplugs, the ht leads looks good. it changes the speed it splutter at to higher speed if i shim the needles higher but if they too high i can almost not take off bcoz too much fuel at small trottleopening and black smoke from the exaust, my bike dnt have needles with groves for a clip thats why i shim them instead. a bikemechanic friend he told he have some simelar problem on a yamaha tdm 850 before and first when he change the nozzle in the carb that the needle goes in to it was cured, the nozzles was oval worn he told and its a problem on downdraft carbs he thinks, but on the xx carbs the nozzle is not specified as sparepart and its pressed in to the carbbody, my nozzle looks a little bit oval on atleast 2 of the carbs if looking closely or maybe only imagination in my eyes, im not sure. do someone had problem with the nozzles in the carbs before? i have cleaned the carbs and petcock many times, the airfilter is some dirthy but its worse without filter so its for sure not bcoz of the filter, the bike have a twobros 4in1 exaust and i have try 140,145 and 150 mainjets,but the problem is not with mainjet circut i think for sure. i had be very happy if someone could have a solution for this bcoz the bike is only irritating to use now and have be more or less the same all the time since i bought it. hope someone can help get my bird flying as it should do! thanks in advance!
