You need to locate the main fuse. It may be in the main box with the other fuses. On the bikes I am familiar with they put it on the starter solenoid. Your owners manual will tell you where it is. If the main fuse blows you lose everything. The only other thing that causes the condition you mention is a broken connection in the battery. Testing the cells shows a full charge but no juice comes out. You have to load test the battery to find out if the battery is bad. You could jump the bike from another battery(with the other vehicle turned off)if your bike lights up , this would tell you your battery was broken internally.

04 Polaris predator, I bought used last week. I put a new battery and new carb on it. It doesn't have power, won't start, and no spark with kick starter. Dead. Fuses,wires, look good. Any ideas

Did it have compression before you bought it?
No power to the electric starter? Then you probably have no power to the ignition system. I'd check battery connections. Is the battery going flat overnight? Some shorts. Is there an ignition with a key? Is the switch good? or all the connections good? Corrosion does some funny things. Fuses may look good but actually are not.

I recently took my good battery out of my 04 gsxr 1000 and tried crank another bike with it.. The bike wouldn't crank.. So I put it back in my gsxr and it would turn over but no fire then after turning it...

The electrical problem of the other bike could've very easily fried your battery, too. It could have enough to turn over but that's it. Take your battery out, take it to a car parts store, have them load test it. It could just need a reconditioning and charged up.

How do i get to the battery on my 2006 suzuki gsxr 1000 that i just recently acquired so i can charge it up?

The battery is under the seat and can be accessed by undoing two bolts. A 3 minute video showing a complete battery replacement on a 2005 GSXR is in the link below.

When you say no spark, are you talking about the spark plugs, or just the general wiring?

If the engine won't turn over, then it isn't moving, and if it isn't moving then you need to check the following in this order:

1) Does the battery have power i.e. around 12.4 volts or over?No? Charge, test or replace battery.

2) Do the car's head lights dim considerably if turned on when attempting to crank? Yes? Possible lack of battery charge or faulty battery.

3) Assuming the battery is fine, can you turn the dash warning lights on and off with the key? No? Faulty ignition switch.

4) Is there a click sound when you turn the key, but no starter motor spin? Check starter motor connections or replace starter motor.

If none of the above prove to be of help, then please report.

My gsxr 1000 (02) wont even turn over? i get power, just bought a new battery, everything comes on, it just wont turn over.. any advice?

Fyi, the clutch must be pulled in. It sounds like you either are not remembering to pull the clutch in or the switch connected to the clutch perch is faulty. You can jump the two wires to test this.

Electrical problem on Aprilia SL 1000 Falco year 2000.

Use a voltage meter and test battery, If that is fine then Test the bike wiring loom at each connection point and you will find at what point its failing.

Don't have any power except to my lights.

Sounds like a power wire that leads to your starter system may be shorted or broken, or another component may be bad, like a starter or relay. Put 12 volts DC directly to the starter and see if it turns over. If so, go to the power-in side of the starter relay (or solenoid) and see if there is 12vdc with the key on. You can use a volt meter or fluke meter set on volts, or a test light. If power exsists, you will need to check for the power signal that comes from the starter button. It is usually a red, sometimes with a white or black tracer, 18-gauge wire that connects to the relay. This power signal is what activates the relay. If power exsists, you will have to go to the starter switch and test for continuity, and keep tracing back from that point. If you just had the bike apart, its likely you may have forgotten to plug in a component or left a ground wire off somewhere.
