    Starting Problem - 2005 GSX-R 600

    So.. not my bike. The girlsfriend's.

    So, while waiting for the ferry from the mainland yesterday, the bike had started and ran fine all the way there from Abbotsford.
    Time to load ferry, and the bike won't start. She got a push start, and managed to get it running. Coming off of the ferry, it needed another push start to get going.
    However, headlight wasn't working.

    Got it to my place. I pulled the battery and put it on the trickle charger from roughly 8:30 PM until 7:30 AM this morning.

    Again nothing. No head-light, and not even a weak attempt to crank over.

    I suspect the battery. However, anyone else have any ideas?

    She needs to get the bike back to the mainland today.

    I can be reached at sfraser AT deckersinc.com.

    Cheers,
    Scott

    is it an old battery? my bike had battery issues a while back. even after charging overnight, i'd have problems restarting the bike throughout the day as i rode to different destinations.

    i replaced the battery and things were ok after that. looks like my battery wasn't able to hold it's charge.

    Check the r/r as well when you replace the battery. If it's gone, it may be putting out too much voltage and frying the battery.
    If you wanna say something, speak into the mic. It's right above my balls.

    Yank the battery and take it to a bike shop to be load tested with a proper tester. They will usually do it for free based on the understanding you'll buy a battery from them if it's toast. If in doubt, ask.

    This is also a good idea so you don't fry your (maybe) new battery. Very simple to do as well.

    i've had several shops do a load test on my battery and it came up ok. i just replaced the damn thing and all my problems went away. the load test doesn't always mean the battery's ok .

    Load test some shops don't do proper load tests...
    Hook up a multimeter and read the battery voltage.
    Then turn it over if its below 10V your batteries done and needs replacing!

    Start with the simple things then lead on to the harder more expensive parts to replace.
