'03 ZX6R electrical problems. - July 21, 2013, 03:41 PM

I have an '03 ZX6R. I just got finished working on it about a week and a half ago, replaced the stator cover and ignition. Ive been riding it to work every day and just went on a day ride. Left about 6:30 this morning and did back roads all day until about 3:30 when I was on my way home. We stopped a few times for lunch and fueling up. I was about an hour out from my house when I stopped to fill up one last time. Filled up and went to finish going home, turned the bike on and nothing happened. No power, no lights, nothing. About ten minutes later it just randomly turned on so of course I just tried to book it home, at the first light I hit after fully downshifting and while I was breaking to stop the light started flickering and the bike shut off, again with no power lights or anything else. Ended up being able to roll it and somehow it started back up by itself. A couple times at lights on the way back when I was full downshifted and breaking to a stop at the light the bike would shut off, still had power but the engine was no longer running and I would have to restart it. Any ideas?

Start with your battery. A wire is loose.


Well you see, Norm, itís like thisÖA herd of buffalo can only move as fast as the slowest buffalo. And when the herd is hunted, it is the slowest and weakest ones at the back that are killed first. This natural selection is good for the herd as a whole, because the general speed and health of the whole group keeps improving by the regular killing of the weakest members. In much the same way, the human brain can only operate as fast as the slowest brain cells. Now, as we know, excessive intake of alcohol kills brain cells. But naturally, it attacks the slowest and weakest brain cells first. In this way, regular consumption of beer eliminates the weaker brain cells, making the brain a faster and more efficient machine. And that, Norm, is why you always feel smarter after a few beers.-Cliff Claven
