Not firing,, Nothing

Diodes are a one way circuit ( a sort of non return valve so to speak for electricity) IF it is good it will be continuous circuit one way and an open circuit the other . You ,mention handle bars so I take it that you are talking motor bike. There is a kill switch on the handle bars that is an emergency stop for the engine and it is very easy to turn it off when manouvering the bike . Check this is on or there will be no ignition circuit.

03 gsxr 600 has broken wires on connector from r/handle switches!

Unless someone has a bike and gives you the correct information you will be fine. Otherwise I recommend tracing back. Also if you turn on ignition, ensuring wires are not touching each other. Ignition will be hot and you should have a common ground. Kill switch will not be a ground. Start switch should be same color as the one at starter. Also turn signal on left handle bar will cause intermittent power to connector. It may just be easier taking apart switches on right handle bar. Or inspecting where they are actually coming from specifically.

I would be inspecting the kill switch. Only thing on the bar that could be it other than the start button.
