Thumbs down gsxr battery issue or something else? - May 19, 2009, 08:52 AM

so yesterday my was running fine all day, then about 8 oclock i stopped at a light. And the bike shuts off when i come to a stop. Thinking it was the connection i pulled to a gas station, and the connection was fine...so this is what happens... i try to start it and the gauges light up for like 2 or 3 minutes then the dim out, and it wont start.....

gsxr are notorious for having hot start issues. a few quick things you can try:

turn the key to the off/on position a few times - making sure the connection is solid inside

let it sit for a while. Sometimes the starter motor is retarded. Specially after stop and go traffic.

the r/r can get stupid hot and causing faux charging issues..again..let it sit (go grab a cup of coffee or somethin...doesn't take long)
i'm actually making a venting section on my tail for my r/r. I've seen some hook up a small cpu fan - yea...it's like that

did a bump start work? if so...go ride around and try to keep ur rpms above 4k so ur charging system can get a good work out.

go ahead (if u haven't already) search "hot starts" on gixxer.com - it'll take u about 2 years to read through everything

sounds like u may jus need a battery though.

Did you check the battery connections? I had a similar problem. The battery cable was loose and bouncing off the terminal while i rode.

$20 says you didn't charge the battery before you put it in the bike (assuming you bought a non-maintenance free battery). If you had to add the acid, you have to charge it for about 4-8 hours or some shiz (on a trickle charger) faster if you have a big joint.

Regulator or Stator. Get the bike running and check voltage at the battery with the rpms around 5000. Should be about 14 volts. If not, then you need to find your stator connecter that goes to the regulator. Unplug it and with the bike running check the stator side of the connector for AC volts. There should be 3 wires in the plug. Check across the wires, not to ground. Check each combination across all three, two at a time. You should be pushing around 70 volts ac out of the stator with the engine rpms up around 4000. Also check for continuity with the engine off across the same wires. Should be down around 0 to .5 or in that ball park. If that all checks good, then its your regulator. But before changing any parts, make sure all your connections are good and tight.
