so i finally got my 10r and it is a electrical nightmare(very long post sorry)
ok so i finally got the bike i have always wanted and it has turned into a nightmare.
i bought a 04 10r from a guy east of atl last weekend.
when we got there dude was out getting one last ride in and when he pulled up on the bike he shut it off, when he turned the key back on the starter started engaging and would not stop till he turned the key off, but when he hit the start button it would fire up and run fine. (should have walked away right there but i really wanted this bike because of the list of mods) but i figured what the hell. we took the bike up to his garage and started messing with it trying to figure it out. well in the process the battery went dead. (really should have walked away i know)
we got the bike running and i checked it with a multimeter and it seemed to be charging so i figured a new battery and figure out the starter problem. i figured what the hell and put it on the trailer.
so i got the bike home and put a new battery in it and rode to my friends house, well on the way home the bike died (ffffuuuuuuuuccccccckkkkkk)
got my neighbor to bring the trailer and pick me up and brought it back home. checked it out and sure as hell it's not charging. i ordered a stator for it and when it came in we started tearing into the bike and when we got down past the throttle body we found a burnt up wire so we fixed that and decided to put it back together just enough to start it and see if it would charge before we tore it all the way down to get to the stator. well we put her back together and turned the key on and it did its normal started engaging crap and wouldnt fire up. well this time when i turned the key off it wouldnt stop spinning the starter until i unhooked the battery. so i called it quits for the day and ordered a starter relay figuring that was my problem.
so yesterday my relay comes in and it is back to trying to start as soon as you turn the key but at least it will stop when you turn the key off and still wont start.
i can unhooh the starter relay to the starter and can hear the fuel pump prime and everything seem to come on as normal when i turn the key on but when i hit the button to try and start it, it doesnt fire up like it was.
anyone have any ideas on any of my problems. i am pulling my hair out
