Recently picked up a cbr1000f, its got a new battery and new spark plugs on it. It just turns over and over and doesnt fire up unless its connected to a battery pack or jumped off a car. Battery has been tested and is good. What could it be. Im assuming its notnthe starter as its turning it over. Cheers

A mate suggested it could be the carbs sticking, it has pod filters on and had been sat uncovered on a driveway for around a year
if it starts on a bigger battery sounds like an amp issue
Mines slow to start if it's been stood a couple of weeks so I've fitted an optimate lead and leave it on a digital charge. It turns over no problem but not enough to fire it instantly as it does when it's fully charged. Fitted iridium plugs but still the same...
How long does it turn over for before firing up?
Doesn't usually start first or second time but after about 4-5 seconds on the third. When fully charged about 3 seconds first time
I was thinking 20-30 seconds. Maybe needing clearances checked if carbs fine.
Mines been better since I replaced the air filter, I used a hi-flow this time
Checks the stator, that happened to me before
Mine just keeps turning over until it has drsined the battery, even if i jump start it and go for a ride then kill it it still wont start back up, doesnt cut out while riding and when its running runs perfectly
Check the charging voltage guys when bike is running. Looking for 13.7 to 14.4volts. Anything lower will leave the battery down on volts after a ride
And if that is the case mark?
More than likely a rectifier issue, Quiet often turns out is poor contacts going to it. or needs replacing.
I do have a spare one, home here for the CBR1000f. Well somewhere
Let me know a price bud wheb you find it
With postage £25. But I would check the contacts on yours. More than likely nothing wrong with it. Way to check yours is with voltage meter and measure resistance on the 3 bottom pins against the live in. Should be around 160-170 ohm
