Overheating and does not start
Last year I left my 2007 R1 outside in the back yard, it was covered but even so exposed to the element of cold. During that time I did not properly "winterize" this motorcycle.
This past summer 2 things have turned up and appear to be wrong.
#1 It overheats, even on a mild summer day (80 degrees) it will quickly climb to 230+, the fans come on but it is still overheating. I questioned my riding as well as oil and both seem to be alright. Oil & Filter were changed about 200 miles ago. And to prove that it was not my riding I could start the bike on a new day and let it idle, 5 minutes later it is at 230.
The bike has 1200 miles on it.
#2 Failure to start. I have trickle charged for days on end, she will get her initial start and then I can ride hard but the next day a start is 50/50 and if I don't ride the next day and wait maybe 2-3 days the start just wont happen and I have to jump it. If i am using a battery tender and fully charging this, could it be a bad battery still or another electrical problem? My suspicion was there is some electrical short having to do with the LoJack which was however, dealer installed.
thank you kindly for any assistance, I look forward to riding again.
