2005 CBR 1000 RR wont start

Hello all,

Long time stalker first actual post. As mentioned in the title it wont start when pushing the start button, bought the bike a few months ago, and have just had minor problems with it, now when I push the start button nothing happens. Let me back up a little bit. About 1 month ago I would push the start button and nothing would happen, pull in the clutch and push the start button the bike would fire right up, This wasn't an every time I was starting it but on the occasion I would have to pull the clutch in.

Now I turn on the key, the gauge goes threw its normal check, the fuel pump comes on, all lights work but the bike wont start. I have pushed started it and runs just fine, but when I shut it off I have to push start it again. I have previously replaced the stator, rectifier and battery due to corrosion in the plug coming from rectifier to the battery. Have already tried to start it with kickstand up and down, leaning on the kickstand and with me straddling it (straight up). I am thinking it might be the push button itself, just not quite sure how to test it if anybody could shed some light or other things for me to try would be greatly appreciated.

I did search the forum before posting and found a few things I will also check, however I only have a test light not a volt tester as a few have suggested it might be the main 30A fuse. Thanks!!!

Re: 2005 CBR 1000 RR wont start

I have checked the start button, have power on 2 wires, the 3rd gets power when I push the start button, also checked the 30A fuse, it is good changed it out with the spare 30A just in case. The clutch switch is good also the block where the 30A fuse seems to be okay. Anybody else have any ideas of what to check? There is no code coming up when I cycle the key on and off, it shows F1 but as soon as the gauge is done cycling it goes away.

Re: 2005 CBR 1000 RR wont start

is your clutch switch hooked up to the clutch master cylinder?

Check the clutch switch, and the neutral switch.

I did remove the clutch switch and engaged it all the way down didnt test it with test light though. I will check it with test light when it gets day light here.

Neutral switch where would it be located?

Thanks for the reply's.
