electrical problem when Hot
I have a 1997 CBR 900RR that I bought a battery a month ago because I thought it was a battery problem, now it has happened 2 times again. Riding on the highway and stopping and starting right away is no problem. but when I ride very slow in stop and go bumper to bumper traffic for over 30 minutes, the bike feels very very hot, the aluminum frame is so hot I can
t touch it. But the Temp gauge never gets into the red, the fan will come on and it stays at about 3/4 on the temp gauge no higher. The problem is if I accidently kill the bike in traffic, then it will not crank back up, It feels like the battery is dead. if I pull over to the side and sit there for a hour then it will crank back up, even though the battery feels weak. the multimeter I put on the battery shows 13.1 volts at 4,000 rpms, idling it is right at 12.0, does this sound like rectifier has overheated? its the original rectifier I believe.
