2000 GP1200R Electrical Problem
My GPR is always drawing power. As soon as I hook up the battery cables it begins draining the battery. The key is not even in the machine at the time. The battery actually gets warm and drains within 5 to 10 mins. Any ideas would be great!

Did you ever resolve this ? I have a ski in my garage doing the same exact thing.

A bad CDI can cause this, so I've been told. Have not experienced this myself, however.

The battery drains in about 30 seconds with a full charge . The draw is so strong that even on the charger the battery wont show any voltage.

could it not be the regulator/rectifier?mine was doing that,i could get it started but died after about a minute,and that was while i was riding aswell.

could have a loose wire in your stator coil,starter,relay, touching ground somewhere... just a thought..
if you have a manual, it will show you in the electrical section how to test all your components to tell if its weak or have failed...

If it's draining that fast, it almost sounds like a dead short. Swap the CDI for a known good unit, and do the same thing with the rectifier as suggested above.

I have a 1997 Gp1200 that is doing that but not as bad. It drains the battery in a matter of a week or two. Now if it is the CDI and I remove the fuse that is in the CDi will that cut that circuit from the ski?
