First bike, couple issues! 1997 CBR600F3
First forum that came up when I googled, hope you guys and gals can be of some help for me with my first bike.
It's a 1997 CBR600F3 with 48xxx kilometres on it, before purchasing the shop was fixing a couple things up on it and every time I went to see it at the shop it started up fine. With that being said now that I have it at home, it fails to hold a charge. Basically if I'm out driving and I stall the bike, it will start up fine, but once it's been sitting for awhile (an hour or so) it won't start up. However, when I turn the key into the on position the headlights and everything come on, so there has to be some juice left in the battery maybe just not enough to let it turn over.
The second and last problem is when turn the handle bars all the way to the right or left there is no lock, I'm not sure if there is supposed to be a lock but essentially if I turn to far to the left the side of the windscreen support/fairing will push the front brake in which could cause disastrous problems if I took a hard left at a high speed. If there is supposed to be a lock, how do I go about fixing it/what parts are involved.
Input would be greatly appreciated and thanks in advance for your help.
