Juz got a cbr1000 '06, A couple of times when I tried to start after refuelling or 15-30mins interval, the engine juz cranks *sometimes juz 'click' and wont start.
After a couple of more tries the engine does eventually fires up.
Read on forum the problem is quite common among the older cbr models including mine, culprit usually lies on the stator or rectifier/regulator.
Heard from other friends the who faced the same problem on their yamaha the problem is with the starter motor, as the ignition just 'click' and wouldn't start.
How can I find out which is really giving me the problems? Charging system or starter motor? its hard for my mech to diagnose as the problem acts up randomly..
My battery is brand new 12cells ballastic. Volt meter before ignition is 12.6 -13, during riding is 13.9 - 14.
Thank you for any suggestions.
