Does the new battery need to have fluid added & be charged before use? Check your fuses if the battery has a charge.

The ignition switch may be faulty, If you can get to it, check for voltage at both sides of the switch. if there is power at the battery side, and none at the switched side (in the ON or RUN position), then you've found your problem.

SOURCE: 07 gsxr 600 no power to the fuel pump or coils put

Start with the basics. Check the fuses, then use a digital multi meter to check continuity from the fuse panel to the fuel pump and coils. If you have good power/ground/continuity, the next step is locating a complete wiring diagram to find out what other components are in the loop. But if you start with the basics first, you won't be dropping hundreds in parts for a $.12 fuse.

SOURCE: My 2008 gsxr 600 has no power when I turn the key

could well be the battery has just gone flat starting the engine up and running it for a fuw minuets knocks more out the battery that you put in and batterys dont like cold weather any how if your going to leave the bike standing around not being driven go out and buy yourself a 12 volt 2.5watt solar charger hook this to the battery and it will keep the battery toped up even in dull weather,,,,i have them on my bikes all year round,cheap power!!!

SOURCE: my battery wont keep a charge

did you check the rectifier circuit? thats the only thing left in the charging system can check this buy using a voltmeter, first gain access to battery.... ground the black meter lead to a good frame ground (make sure bare metal surface, not painted), and touch the red lead to the positive terminal on the battery..with the engine at idle, you'll probably see about 12.5v or > increase to 4000rpm and watch to see the voltage rise to approx. 13.5v to 14v and then while holding it at this rpm you should see the voltage being rectified down to about 13v, release throttle now, this is normal operation rectifier is working. If the battery still wont hold a charge then the negative battery cable is probably shorting out on the frame somewhere and draining the battery. You can try to see if this is shorting out by driving the bike around (if you can), for at least 15 minutes above 4000rpm then take a voltage reading real quick... it'll probably be around 12.6 or> ..13v is excellent. now disconnect the negative cable.. tie it off so it wont touch anything, and leave over night next day it should still read about 12.6v. Hope you find the trouble. Can you let me know if this helped you a lot.

Replaced starter solenoid on gsxr 600 2001. It's still clicking. What do i check next? I've checked every thing but starter motor.

The biggest thing that jumps to mind is that your battery might be not fully charged or defective.

Put a test meter on it. You should have 12.6 volts minimum. Whilst connected, press the starter. What happens to the voltage?

Remove the starter motor and connect it direct to a car battery with jump leads or heavy cable.

2003 600 GSXR. Why won't it start?

Check if the power goes to the starter relay; and to the ignition coil.
A short cut is to check if one of the spark plugs is firing.

2001 Suzuki GSXR 600 starting trouble.

The stator is probably it..I had the same problem...After you change it the bike will run so much better. That's why it ran good with the new battery...Then it started draining it..It takes a special tool to get it out..

I have a 2001 Suzuki GSXR 600. It suddenly lost power while I was riding. I put a new battery in but after about 20 miles lights started going dim. Had someone tell me it is my alternator. Where is it at...

Bikes don't actually have alternators. The charging system on a bike has a generator and a regulator/rectifier. The generator might cost you a little bit but the regulator/rectifier won't cost a lot. Chances are one of those went bad which creates a large power draw and doesn't allow your battery to charge. Seems like it's a regular occurance with the K1's. I would suggest getting a repair manual and fixing it yourself. Might take you a day or two but it'll save you a lot in labor.

2001 suzuki gsxr 600 ignition problems

Sounds like you have a short in the electrical system possibly around your fuze box. Best thing to do is to just pull off all your plastics and trace the electrical system, looking for exposed wires or damaged wires.

I was driving my 07 gsxr 600 when it just died on me. i have no power to anything. i checked the battery and it was fine and connected. what would cause this?

Sounds like the ignition switch. Start by just checking the connection where it plugs in. If that seems OK thantry to wiggle the key around while you hold something on like the horn. Seems pretty new for that to be faulty, but you never know.

2002 gsxr 600 bike shuts off

Did you put a full charge on the battery b4 you put it in? The charging system really dose not charge until like 4 or 5 thousand RPM's. So just starting it in the garage doesnt really charge the battery. Put a full charge on it and it should be fine.Also buy a trickle charger. It will keep this from happening again. Its a commonly over looked issue. If it dies again going around town the replace the stator. ( left side of motor )
