2009 R1 starting problem...Please help
My 09 r1 cranks over, engine sounds like it wants to start but it wont. Very little smoke comes out of my exhaust, every time I try to start it. After the third try of trying to start it, the engine would sound like the battery is draing out and once the battery is drain out. All I hear is a ticking nosie coming from where that battery is located. I have a brand new battery and it still wont start up. Same thing goes for the new battery. Cranks over with smoke coming out of the exhaust, sounds like it wants to start but it wont. After the third try, the bike wont even crank or turn over at all. All I hear is a loud ticking nosie coming from the battery. Could I have flood the engine and need to replace the spark plugs or what could it be?
