1996 CBR900RR no start issue

I bought a CBR900RR this past saturday, rode it all weekend, and on easter night it stopped running.

Found melted wires under the seat from the rectifier to the stator, my battery wouldn't charge over 11 volts, and it started having some pretty strange issues i've never heard seen before.

Presumably the rectifier is toast, BUT. When I turn the key on, the lights come on very dim of course, but when I flick the kill switch to run the RPM's jump up to like 8 grand. It doesn't make any sense to me, anyone have any experience with something like this. I will post a video and several photos of the carnage.

Thanks in advance for the help ladies and gents.

Re: 1996 CBR900RR no start issue

Someone posted on my other youtube video of it and they said a rectifier issue can cause stuff like that to happen with the tach and speedo. Who knows. Hopefully someone chims in.

Thanks for the welcome mate, I love the bike it ran great for a few days then she was spanked.

Re: 1996 CBR900RR no start issue

ssit? Or did it sit around? As in, not ridden often? If that is the case no. It was daily ridden before I bought it.

You need to get a multimeter and a manual and do the tests of the charging system to determine what has failed.
And charge the battery of course.

And the charging system still works?
