Re: Bike Wont Start. Makes Clicking Sound
Hey, Im having the same issue with my 04' 1000rr...
Bought new battery, worked fine for a few days then died.
Fully charged battery, and it worked for a day then died.
Always starts from a car jump.
Just clicks when it taps out.
I took it to the Iron Pony service shop here in Columbus, they checked the charging system and said it was fine and faulted the battery. didnt even charge me the $87 service check fee as I bought the battery from them days before.
But problem still there.
The bike seems to work fine if I travel longer distances or not too many stops. But if I travel in high traffic or make more then 2 stops, i'm suspect to be stranded somewhere. Even started riding with jumper cables just in case.
I recently upgraded to a better quality battery and did some diagnostics on the R/R but it seems fine. I'm wondering if my relay could be the problem. I have an undertail exhaust and it gets extremely hot down there. Could the extra heat cause the relay not to perform?
gehado.. did you find the problem?
