Just wanted to say thanks to all of you that were in Lewisburg on Sun. evening to help out with my ailing CBR.
For those that didn't know, my bike refused to start after stopping for gas about a block or two from the hotel. Sprint_ST, Zeronetgain, Mr. Awesome, R_Doug, John, Rodger, the couple from Texas (sorry! I'm terrible with names) and I'm sure some others I'm forgetting were all hugely helpful with tools, advice, and assistance. Sprint_ST and Zeronetgain even drove me to Walmart in search of a battery.
On the advice of my mechanic back home, I rented a Uhaul and drove the bike home on Mon.
Once home, the shop gave me a new battery (under warranty).
After some research, I've also learned that the '03 CBR600RR's WERE known for faulty Regulators, contrary to what I told some of you. I remembered after looking it up that some '03's would refuse to start after a short hop in really hot weather. The Reg. is located under the left mid fairing, right next to the headers and radiator.
Some bikes were affected and others not. Mine never had this problem in 7 years and 46k miles, so it was thought to not be affected. But now my charging voltage drops off as the bike gets hot. Since then, Honda has replaced the original Reg. with an updated part # which I have on order. On Tue., I'll have a complete electrical diagnostic done. If there are no other problems, the new Reg. and battery will go in and hopefully all will be well. Wish me luck!
Thanks again guys! You're a class act.
