Question about 2007 Suzuki GSX-R 600

1 Answer

I was on my way to work and I had to hit my brakes to avoid a bike turned off and would not crank back up. I had dull lights on dash board and clicking noise from battery. I had the bike towed home. I changed the battery and it seems to be okay. However I have a fear about traveling so far to work thinking something in addition could be wrong. Could I have an altenator problem or could it just been the battery. I got the bike 8 months ago, and as far as I know the battery that was in it was never changed prior to me having the bike. I had the old battery tested and it said it was not a bad battery but needed to recharge it.

Put a volt meter across the battery it sould read just over 12v , then when you start the bike and rev it, this should rise to around 13.5v-14.5v this will show its charging. If it doesent rise above the initial 12v reading it may be the alternator

The odds are the one fuse is blown for the dash and the tail lights. And the wrong bulb may have been put in for the brake light. The brake light is feeding back into the tail light circuit causing the fuse to blown out.

Change out the bulbs with OEM bulbs and replace the blown fuse. That should fix the problem.

Hitting the emergency brake's has nothing to with the brake lights on the back of the vehicle , you had to have this problem before an just didn't notice . Are all the brake lights lit ? High mount lamps too.. ? The regular one's are controlled by a BCM - body computer .

R1 abs?

A new US study has found that anti-skid brakes dramatically reduce the chances of a fatal bike crash.
Anti-lock braking systems can reduce the likelihood of a fatal bike crash by 38 per cent, a new US study has found.
The study, by the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety, found that anti-lock brakes dramatically reduced the chances of overturning a bike and crashing.
A separate study, by the affiliated Highway Loss Data Institute, found that insurance claims dropped by 21 per cent for bikes fitted with the technology.
In a report on the study, the president of both organisations, Adrian Lund, says anti-lock brakes are life-savers.
“It’s a way to reduce the chances of overturning a bike and crashing, so it can save lives,” says Lund.
While the introduction of ABS on cars didn’t deliver any noticeable reductions in fatal car accidents, Lund says it’s clear that widespread adoption of the technology on bikes would have a much bigger effect.
“It isn’t surprising that anti-lock brakes are more beneficial on motorcycles than they are on cars because the two-wheelers are so much less stable and it’s this instability that leads to crashes,” he says.
The braking process on a bike is more difficult than a car because the front and rear wheels typically have separate braking systems. The front brakes are more effective for stopping fast, but hitting them too hard can make the front wheel lock up and pitch a rider off the bike.
Lund says that some bikers hold back on the brakes for fear of locking up, only to find they haven’t braked hard enough to avoid a collision.
ABS systems use sensors to adjust the brake pressure continuously, ensuring that the wheels never lock up and the rider can continue to steer in an emergency.
The HLDI study compared insurance losses for 12 brands of bike with and without anti-lock brakes, finding that insurance losses were 21 per cent lower and claim frequency was 19 per cent lower with ABS models.
The IIHS study studied eight brands and found there were 6.6 fatal accidents per 10,000 registered bikes without ABS and 4.1 accidents per 10,000 for bikes with ABS.
In a statement released to coincide with the study findings, local bike insurance specialist Swann Insurance says the studies support its call for more car-like safety items to be included on motorcycles.
