Question about 2007 Yamaha YZF-R1

1 Answer

I been having problems lately with starting my 08 r1.. bought it new and only has 2000 miles.. cuts on but wont turn over.. after couple tries battery drained.. but bike will start with the help of a jump.. also noticed lately ticking sound in engine.. as if its misfiring or something of that nature.. after further review on the web people tend to point it out as something to do with the cam tensioner.. could the start problem be coming from that.. any ideas fellas??

You sound like you have a dead cell in your battery, if so it needs replacement. A dead cell in the battery can happen from various things, and wont hold a full charge if you put it on a tester it will give you 9-10 volts instead of 12.5 -13 volts, the coil wires run directly from the battery so it has access to full power (makes sense right?) and if your battery isn't holding under full load then that could be the fix for you

If you want your starter bike to be your ender bike then yes it is a great first bike. Honestly it's kinda like suicide. And you want to jump onto one of the strongest and fastest bikes out there? Do a little more research before choosing because it could literally be life or death depending on your choice. The R1 is a HORRIBLE first bike choice. I suggest you start with a Ninja 250r or something similar. If you don't want to sell and buy another one you might be able to start on a Ninja 500. You do realize that the "1" in R1 stands for 1000cc bike. Be careful out there. John
