Re: HONDA 954RR 2002 Starting problem
Have you tinkered with the bike prior to this problem showing up btw ?
An air filter wouldn't be the culprit (even if it was pretty filthy). Plugs, maybe - if they were very fouled but usually that causes a "crank/no fire" condition.
Start with the obvious first: Are the battery terminals tight? This is often overlooked & should be doublechecked.
Also, were there any noticeable symptoms prior to the engine just "turning off" on you while you were out riding around (ie - low/stumbling idle, dimming headlamp, etc) ?
How many miles on the engine btw and what kind of overall condition is this new-to-you bike in ? Hopefully it wasn't someone's basketcase of a problem and pawned off to an unsuspecting buyer (you).
