2010 CBR 1000 electrical issue

Went to go start my bike today and had to jump it. Did so with my car ( I know this is kind of a no no.) got it to start and stayed started for a bit. Shut it off about 20 minutes later and tried to restart it. Wouldn't turn over and did the regular clicking noises. Went to jump it again and now the bike won't even turn on. No gauges, no fuel pump, nothing. I've checked all the fuses and connections and nothing is bad. I'm almost positive that it's just that the battery is fried but I'm not 100% sure. Just looking for any information that anybody might have because I've never had this issue before.

Re: 2010 CBR 1000 electrical issue

How old is the battery? how many volts is it showing? Have you fully charged the battery?
It sounds like the battery is dying.

Do the tests of the charging system for a start...

Re: 2010 CBR 1000 electrical issue

I haven't done any tests on it yet. Honestly I don't really know how to do the electrical testing. Electrical is not my strong point.

Charge the battery for a start.
At least measure the voltage across the battery with engine off, and when running after jump starting. Never have the car's engine running when jumping a bike.

Re: 2010 CBR 1000 electrical issue

I would check that but the bike won't even turn on. It's almost like there is no battery in it even though it's there and connected. I turn the key and nothing happens. No gauges or anything

Have you charged the battery already?
You get no dash lights when connected to a car battery?

Re: 2010 CBR 1000 electrical issue

Sounds like your starter relay and/or fuse blew on you.
I don't have a 1Krr, but on my bike, the starter relay and fuse is located right next to the reg/rec. They have a spare 30 amp fuse tucked in there too, make sure you find the 'live' fuse and check it.

Re: 2010 CBR 1000 electrical issue

I think your battery started out as the problem, it's either not taking a charge or possibly the charging system is not working, that's why all you got after 20 min. of running was the starter relay clicking. When you turned the key on the second time to start it did you have lights and gauges before you tried to jump it? If so, like Jondog suggested, I think you blew the fuse. Do you have a volt/ohm meter? If not, get a cheap one and as Br suggested, test your battery voltage now to verify your battery is charged. Simply set the dial to DC Volts (20v scale) and put the lead to the corresponding battery terminals, red = pos, black =neg. Do the same after you do get it running to verify that your charging system is working before you run out and buy a battery. Meanwhile set the meter to ohms ( resistance, my meter only has an Omega symbol), and measure the resistance across the fuse, (even if it looks good, I've been fooled before) there should be none. If the fuse is good, check the voltage going to the relay, and leaving the relay (with the start button pressed). Let us know.

Forgive me if I over simplified, not knowing how much electrical experience you have I tried to make it easy.

Don't change the battery until you determine that it is the problem. Charge it first.
Then I'd say the main fuse has blown.

Re: 2010 CBR 1000 electrical issue

Does sound like you popped the main fuse since you have no lights. Only other time I have seen nothing light up is with a loose connection to the battery, so double check you have everything connected and tight as well.

Check the battery by charging it and checking the voltage, then check it again with the bike running. Running = (roughly) 14v. Static (bike off) should be 12.5-13v). Grab a manual or look it up on here how to do the charging system tests to verify it is working.

I had my battery go dead from sitting after about 5 days. Jumped it off my car and went for a ride, she ran fine. Got home, turned her off and went inside. Came back an hour later and she wouldn't start... dead battery =)

Re: 2010 CBR 1000 electrical issue

Being that electrical's is not your strong point make sure you disconnect the battery from the bike before you hook up the battery charger.

Re: 2010 CBR 1000 electrical issue

I misspoke about the starter relay and fuse.
If your gauges don't self check (which I missed the first time I read) then, as suggested, look to the main fuse, not the starter fuse or relay.
