Ok ppl. This is the second time that this has happen to me and I am bout getting the sh*t$ of it. :banghead:
:helpme: :helpme: :helpme:
The first time it happen to me, Matt and a few others were going to the Carlisle Bike Show and it got pretty hot just sitting there in non-moving traffic and it caused the battery to die. I called the guy I bought the bike from and he told me that it was the orginal battery(5yrs old) and that when the bike gets that hot,over 248, it drains from it thous causing it to die
. As it did on me that day. So I got it running later after the bike show when Matt kick-started it and it ran great for me for a few more days till I left the park light on and it drained the battery again. So I go out at from 12:30am till almost 3am by the time I got home and a few trips to Wal-Mart to get the right battery and take the old one with me on the last trip to be sure I go the right one. Long night.
So tonight I am riding(now its been a few weeks and all running fine) and stop and get gas and shut it off. The temp was around 190-200. When I go to start it back up it trys to start but it won't.
Think of a starter in a car trying to kick over but just won't. It was doing that. It had power but wasn't getting enough to start the bike. I let it sit for a bit to see,try again and I get nothing but the same. No starty.
So I end up getting enought speed pushing it and kick start it and I am on my way home.
As soon as I got home I shut it off to see if it will start(hoping the battery got pretty charged riding home)and it did the same thing it did earlier. No starty again. :shock:
I am going to take it to the local bike shop tomorrow or thursday to see what they come up with. I am hoping someone can shed some light on this and help me out.
One answer I am looking for is under lined to as if you have heard that before. And if anyone has some insight on the rest, please help me out. I want to get it fixed so it doesn't do it again. I have talked to the BETTER half tonight and got the ok to get the 2004 GSXR1000 I want. :hyper: But I am going to get this fixed and sell it so I don't sell it to someone and it happens to them and get pi$$ed off at me for it.
Thank you all for the info in advance.
