Hi If I remove the side fairing on my 08 zx6r will the bike start or not?

Because when I removed both of them It didn't start, there is connections on the right side and left also. I will check the battery, what to you think?

The bike used to start 3 daysbefore I remove the fairings.

Do you think it is because of that? I am new with kawa, my cbr didn't have connections on the fairings so I dont know if they can make the bike not starting when removed.

Does someone has the answer?

So wait, you unplugged an electrical connection when you removed the fairing?

Basic logic here. Work with me.

1) everything works
2) you did something
3) nothing works

I'm going to go out on a limb here and say that the problem was caused by whatever you did.

I rode mine the other day without the side fairings... so yes, it will start. The only connections should be the side markers...

There are no electrical connections on the fairings...on any bike that I've ever seen. I mean, you took it off...look at it! You should've been able to answer your own question in 2 seconds. Nobody makes a bike that won't start with the fairings off.

I'm an advocate for people working on their own bikes, but occasionally there are some that really should not. You may want to have someone else work on it, or else it seems like you'll just make matters worse.

On my 09-12 the regulator/rectifier is installed on the right side fairing...Maybe it is there on the 07-08 also?

The only thing on the right side that I recall is the turn signals attached to the fairings. Just re plug everything.
Watch a youtube fairing removal video to go back and see where you may have messed up.

Even so that's something that you'd think anyone would notice right away. Don't yank on it if it's not coming off easily. My rectifier is on the front fairing and the first time I took it off I didn't realize that but noticed right away when I felt a bit of resistance..."hey, i need to take this off first, rather than keep pulling on it". Seems common sense to me

I don't think anything has been pulled or damaged at all. OP says "there are connections", i believe he just disconnected the plugs of the r/r ,took the whole fairing off and didn't take it off the fairing ever since. Now he is wondering why the bike doesn't start without an r/r.

The bike should still start even if the regulator/rectifier and stator are unplugged.

Did you possibly unplug the kickstand sensor switch when you removed the fairings?
