Re: 01 RC51 wont start problem
Well first I tested to see if the battery was low or dying but it was running around 12.8 volts. I got the bike to start but found out new problems today with the bike. When test riding the bike around, at low RPMS the bike feels like it loses complete power and then all the sudden the power comes back which felt bad & dangerous. When I rode the bike about 1 mile down the street to the gas station, randomly the bike would stutter (lose power) and kick back in & while this is happening the FI light turns on then turns off. This happened within a 1 mile 4 times. I filled the bike up with 2 gallons probably totaling 3 gallons in the tank. I drove back home & it happens randomly again where I would lose power & the FI light would turn on & then turn off & then power would come back. Once I got into my neighborhood, the bike started going even more crazy, it starts to struggle to accelerate/hesitate & stutters, & begins Backfiring ALOT & for some reason my low fuel light turned on & then it died on me & wouldnt turn on lol. I had to roll that bitch home through the neighborhood. Once in front my house, I tried turning it on and it turned on fine like nothing happened. My friend believes its electrical because I am the 2nd owner and the wiring down on the back looks pretty crappy but nothing is being grounded/short circuited its just the wiring done on the bike is pretty shady. My friend also believes its the power commander 2 thats F'ing up the ecu bike. The power commander says I am running to lean and looks if-ffy becuz of the rust around the usb part of the power commander. Sorry for the long LONG explanation but I'm just trying to be descriptive to see if anyone had this type of problem or know a possible solution. Thank you.
