SOURCE: upon turning the ignition key

Hello and welcome to FixYa!
As a first course of action, I strongly suggest that you remove the positive battery connector and let it sit for atleast 5mins. before reconnecting it. This will reset the system and can get your bike back to it's normal operation.
If the problem still persists, I suggest that you go check the spark plugs for it may have big gaps, corroded or just faulty. If that's the case you may need to replace them for better fuel burning.
Hope this helps and thank you for using FixYa! Have a good one!

Fuel pump stays on and floods motor

Not too sure about this but there are a couple of things to try. Fairly sure the fuel pump runs from a relay somewhere in the tangled mass we call a wiring harness. You will also have a dedicated fuse for the pump, the fuse is obviously OK. I would look for the relay and or check the ECU. Do the plugs spark? Sorry can't be more helpful.

I have an 04 gsxr 600. She has no power except in the pe selection on the ignition switch and all I get is my brake light, turn signals and hazards. Battery shoots good, I have checked all possible fuses...

Hi, Jllay0603 nice novella and the usual suspects are:
1. Ignition Switch not in the "ON" position.
2. Engine Run Switch in the "OFF" position.
3. Discharged battery, needs to be 12.5 volts or better and be able to pass a "LOAD" test if necessary.
4. Check the battery terminals for damage or corrosion check the battery cables at "BOTH" ends for loose, corroded, or broken connectors, "INSIDE" and outside the cable harness, perform connector wiggle test and check cables with an ohmmeter if necessary.
5. Tip over sensor needs a reset.
6. Faulty ignition switch.
7. Faulty starter button.
8. Faulty kickstand or clutch pull in switch/sensor.
9. Starter control circuit, relay, or solenoid faulty.
10. Main fuse or circuit breaker may be blown or faulty.
11. Check for engine trouble codes.

2003 gsxr will not start

does your bike have a kickstand switch...maybe hitting the speed bump caused the stand to move and killed the engine...also i think your bike has a tilt switch under the seat near the gas tank not real sure on the location but it just sounds to me like what would happen if you hit the kill switch...just throwing out some ideas let me know it it helped.

Checking power to fuel pump 1998 gsxr750w

Yellow and red wires should be your power wires, the others should be ground. Check for both. You may need to turn it over a few times to get the pump to prime.

I cant find the fuel shut off switch on my 2008 gsxr 600 I dont have the owners manual either

THe fuel shut off valve is also called the "petcock" it should be located on the side of the gas tank on the very bottom. I think it is on the right hand side. Look for the fuel line that goes to the fuel system and you should be able to trace it to the shut off valve. It should have 3 positions, ON / OFF / RESERVE
