1090RR will not crank (occassionaly)

Hey guys,

I have been having this weird issue recently. The bike cranks and starts just fine the first time when cold. After riding for a while and if I stop and turn it off and let it stay for a while, it will not crank at all when I try to start it back again. When I turn the key, the fuel pump does its thing and bike goes through the diagnostics and gives me OK. Then I pull the clutch and press the starter button but it does absolutely nothing. Dead silence. I have to repeat the start procedure from the begining (sometimes 3 or 4 times) before it cranks and starts. It runs great once it fires up.

As a precaution I replaced the battery with a brand new Yuasa but that did not help. I searched the forum and I found a lot of threads on starting issues but nothing that matches my issue.

Any ideas?

Thanks in advance!
Angel B.

On the times that you have started the bike, ridden a bit. Stopped and the bike failed to restart. Did you notice if the trip meter was automatically reset to 0.0?

Ciao,
Dick

You said "Then I pull the clutch and press the starter button but it does absolutely nothing." so I guess that bike is in the gear.
Try put it in neutral (is the green light "on"?) and crank without pulling the clutch lever.

Miko, pulling in the clutch lever is necessary to start a 1090RR.

Abazhle, look for a wire connector that may be loose...look at the clutch lever switch...

The manual has a nice diagnostic stream that tells you what is needed for the bike to turn over.

Hi Dick, no the trip meter doesn't reset. It acts as though I have not pulled the clutch. I wonder if I have a faulty clutch sensor or something else of that nature...

Thanks,
Angel B.

Hi Miko, 2010 and newer Brutales won't crank without clutch. Regardless of the gear position.

The trip meter used to reset on mine, its a voltage drop issue, a lithium battery sorts this however the erratic hot start problem sounds like the clutch switch is faulty but then again if it starts OK when cold, ermmm

Well, billywhizzz...this morning it did not crank (for the very first time) even when cold. Started from the second attempt. So, it's got to be the clutch switch...I guess I will be replacing it.

Thanks!
