Battery?? or just a common issue (hot start GSX-R) - July 5, 2012, 03:48 PM

So my gsxr seems to not like to start when hot... (actually both of them..) But they were using the same battery.

Anyway Bike starts fine from a cold start, ride around yada yada. Got gas, tried to start it back up, and it sounds like it started, then diess. (I hear the motor start/exhaust etc. for almost 1 second, then it's dead.) Try again and it just cranks. Then I leave the key on for about 3-4 minutes to let the fan run, then try again and it starts right up. This makes me think it's NOT the battery, but since it happened when I had that battery in my track bike (when trying to hot pit, almost didn't start back up) and then now in the street bike...

All connections are solid, again cold start haven't had an issue yet either.

yup sounds like rectifier check the wires and plugs look for any damage. You can also do a voltage test keep the throttle at a steady 3-3.5k rpm and see if the voltage drops if so rectifier and stator could be shot.
