Unhappy Gsxr- Starting issues!

so i layed the bike over about a month ago. had to push start it to get it home. it started up fine for a few days. about a week later it would randomly not want to start back up. i have had to push start it a few times. finally took the battery to get tested and charged. they said it was good, but today i went to pump gas and it didnt wanna start again. any ideas??

thanks

Well before jumping into throwing part on it lets diagnose the problem first.


If YOUR rectifier was going out, the battery wouldnt be charging and the bike would die eventually as you rode.

Is your bike not trying to crank? Or is it trying to crank but doesnt have enough juice to turn the engine over?
(we need to determine if its a battery/charging issue or a starter lockout issue)

. i got the battery charged friday. rode some sunday. then i just turned it on yesterday so it wouldnt go dead. then today i went for a ride. it started up, got to the gas station pumped gas. tried to start it wouldnt turn on. it does try to crank but it seems like it needs more juice.oh and the lights flicker. then i pushed started it. rode around to charge up the battery. after that it started up fine.

it has never just died while i was riding.

Check your terminals and see if they're loose or corroded.
If you swing by I'll load test the battery and verify charging system output, no charge.

I took too long to type lol.... Patrick is da man!!!!!!!!

But I'll leave my post up since I already wrote it



Push starting it saves the amperage that would have gone to the starter so the remainder of the bike can use the preserved power.

First thing I would do is check your connections.

Do you have a DVOM?

If so, while the bike is running put the setting to direct voltage, one pin on the battery terminal, the other on the battery connector. Do this to both terminals. Its called a voltage drop. If you see anything significant whatsoever then there is too much resistance between the battery terminal and the clamp. Check the connections.

If that is good, put the DVOM on the battery red pin to red, blk to blk. At idle should be at least at 12.7v. Rev it up to 1500 and the voltage should be higher. This is where the battery charges.

If all that is good, do a parasitic draw test on the vehicle system using an inductive clamp or disconnect the ground side of the battery, put the DVOM to fused 10a setting, put the red pin on the DVOM to that amperage testing pin and put the DVOM inline w the cable/battery. The draw amperage shouldnt be above 20mA (0.020A) or 40-50mA w LEDs.

Technicians dont try to guess unless there is nothing to no longer test.
And that is rare.
I have questions about my Honda project's engine and Im bringing mine to Motorcycles Unlimited because they have more experience then I do in that area and I know they could give me better guidance. Im still afraid its a lower engine knock though and I'll be pulling pistons/rods

Patrick and his guys will be checking what was covered above and are great at what they do

You bring up a good point. I am having the exact same thing happen to me (minus the engine stopping while I am riding). I have an 09 R1 and I started having starting problems and was set on thinking it was a battery issue. In my case, however, my bike is still under warranty so out-of-pocket expenses is minimal. I tried everything under the sun to get her working right (thinking it was he battery) and bought several chargers, floaters and tenders. I finally broke down and took her back to the dealer (BTW, Team Mancuso is awesome!) and the problem came from either the voltage regulator or the stator. They ordered the parts and I will hopefully get my bike back by this weekend (I dont think my bike likes the cold weather as much as I thought...). Other than that, I am not having any other problems with her. Hope you get back on the road soon.
