Honda 954rr wont start when it heats up!! help please

Hi all,

Would love your help and advice please! My Honda 954 2003 is in overall excellent condition. I also just had a brand new Battery installed. However, if I decide to switch it off for a moment after sitting in traffic and heating to 105-106c, the bike wont start at all.. It's exactly as if the Battery is drained and doesn't have enough charge...if i try to jump start it, it still wont work. If i let it sit and cool down for 20-30 mins, the bike will ONLY turn on if i jump start it. Once its running for a few mins, I can switch it off and back on with the regular ignition switch. It feels like the heat is somehow effecting the battery??? But again, the battery is new and the bike goes back to normal if i don't let it heat up. This is the second time this happens to me during the day...I'm quite sure its not the battery cuz #1 its brand new, #2, the bike would sit in my garage for 3 or 4 days without using it and it would turn on perfectly with no hesitation...this only happens when it heats up!! Any Ideas or leads to what the problem could be??

Have you actually checked that the charging system is working?
If it's not working it doesn't matter how new the battery is as it will go flat within an hour or two.

Hey thanks for the reply. If the charging system isnt working, wouldnt that cause the bike to have regular ignition problems? I mean sometimes I don't drive it for days when im traveling and it would start up with no problems whatsoever...im only seeing this problem on hot days apparently..its really quite frustrating..I'll check it anyways! Thank you.

It depends on how bad the system is. It may have only dropped one winding.
Do the tests.
