Changing front tire has nothing to do with your bike not starting! first start by turning the key to the on position, do the lights come on bright? turns sigs Etc, work normally, hit hi beam, does it work, if yes then i would guess your battery does have enough juice to turn it over. Since you said it was running fine before this i doubt its a fuel problem but check your fuel pump fuse just to insure! if fuse is good then its time to get out the meter pull off the seat and take a voltage reading across the battery terminals. if it reads only 12.1v or less, it needs a trickle charge for about 5 hours. Batteries only last about two to three years! if you charge it and it starts!! but sputters when you ride it, then change the battery its going bad!

1999 Suzuki GSXR 600 turns over extremely slow

Hi, Sharon my gut tells me you may have a faulty battery ground cable connection to the frame or engine case or your starter relay, starter solenoid, starter motor are being given last rites for this scenario you will need your service/owners manual if you can't find the first and best tool you ever bought for your Suzuki, despair not, for a mere zero $0 you can download another one.

No problem. i have a chance to buy a 2007 600 gsxr with 2500 miles in what appears to be emaculate condition for 4000.00. i wanted to find out if there are any major flaws that will make this bike come...

The biggest difference is that the 2007 GSXR 600 has fuel injection instead of carbs. The FI symbol will alert you that the sensors on the Fuel Injection system have found a problem. When that happens, a dealer will be needed to hook up a code reader to see what the problem is. A dirty air filter is something you can fix. A fuel mapping problem is for the dealer to fix. Minor FI problems still let the bike run. Major problems shut down the fuel system so the engine will not even start. Other than that, just be sure the bike shifts smooth and easy and that all electrics and brakes work properly. How old is the battery? How much life is left in the chain? Does the clutch operate properly? How soon before new tires will be needed? I hope this helps. Please rate my answer.

I'm having problems starting up my 1999 suzuki gsxr 600. In the morings and while it sits at work.!!! But starts up fine after RIDES. What's the problem?? anyone KNOW?

I would check there is good fuel flow and not a pinhole letting air in to the pipes. Check the mixture if it is temperature sensitive and check the plug gaps.
Hope that helps.

200° is quite warm...
If the engine wont turn over, probabily you have a bad battery, a bad starter or a bad starter relay, or bad connections.

A hot engine has more compression. If the full battery power doesn't reach the starter it won't turn over...

Gsxr 600 1999 keeps blowing main fuses.

My guess is the wiring around the headstock pivot are shorted out, and you will need to need to do a check with a meter. This manual should explain clearer....

1999 GSXR 600 ---> Hesitating and bucking??

The best help I can give you is a free factory service manual. There will be a troubleshooting section in the book that should be of help. You have fuel injection and I am a "carbs only" man. Go to the site below and download the free manual. Yours is the 43rd from the top of the Suzuki section.

Now you can do a whole lot more on your bike.
Please rate this answer. Thanks fieldsry!

Check the tank for water or crud. Also drain the carbs to make sure the floats aren't obstructed.
