The engine won't turn over anymore? Or it turns over and just won't start? Two very different problems.

Are you running manual ccts or still factory autos?

Sounds like new battery time. The gunshot is just unburned gas from all the choking and cranking.

Next time try hitting the starter and then slowly pulling choke as its spinning. (not before) No idea why this works but it does.

How old is the battery? How strong was it crankng? Sounds like nothing major. Give more details.

Battery is about 6 months old and could prolly need replacing but it sounds real strong and is it weird that it's pushing 15 volts

6 months shouldnt need replacing. Its not making 15 volts. If anything, your RR is shot and allowing that much into the system. Are you measuring standing voltage?

Oh, yeah, I am always the guy explaining that. RR is regulator rectifier. It controls how much voltage gets put back into the system as well as rectifying it (ac to dc).

They are the #1 sketchy thing on these bikes. Do a search on it there is tons of info. Figure you can ebay a mofset one. I use the Yamaha R1 units on my 2 vtrs.

Mathew, if you have been riding and running it, keep the bike. This is an easy fix. But if you dont do it the battery will fail and you will have to push it home. (IF this is the problem)

Any minute someone may swoop in and give you a link, or search Regulator rectifier. You can buy plug n play replacements. You have to check voltage across the battery at rest and running. Then post results.

Carb farts, its common when you've swapped exhausts until you do the PAIR removal. there are a couple threads about it on here.

I'd come and help you out but I just looked it up. I'm an hour and a half north of atlanta and your a little more than 2 1/2 south of it

Download the VTR1000F Workshop manual PDF for servicing info - use this forum's search function to flesh out what needs doing and how its done.

On the UK Firestorm site we have a *** Read Me for New Members *** which is a handy reference from how to post pics to Bike Maintenance and Upgrades/Modifications. Most of it is just as applicable to the US Superhawk but its written in English :-)
