Re: cbr1000rr5 erratic starting/immobiliser prob

Sounds like the kill switch to me. As long as the headlights come on, your clocks run through their normal pre-checks, and it tries to crank this usually indicates either the fuel pump starting to fail or the kill switch going bad. Try to by-pass the kill switch by hooking the two wires for it together and give her a go. If that does not fix the problem start looking at all your grounds, and do a wire check of the pump wires. Also run though ALL of your fuses and your fuel pump relay. Try this stuff out and let us know the outcome. I put my money on the kill switch for anyone keeping score =P

Also, not sure if you have done this or not; Try to make your way over to the introductions section and post up a brief bio and some bike pics! Some of us (mainly me) love some bike porn!!! I think this is an outstanding site with a lot of helpful people, certainly worth hanging around for a while!

Re: cbr1000rr5 erratic starting/immobiliser prob

I would start with the kill switch as they tend to intermittently fault for a while before they die off completely. Keep us up to date!

Re: cbr1000rr5 erratic starting/immobiliser prob

Either killswitch or the HISS acting up. Does the yellow light go out on the dash?

If the bike isn't braking properly, you don't start by rebuilding the engine.
