Have you tried unplugging the rectifer/regulator...if that stops the draw...test the rectifier diodes.

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.

08 gsxr turned off while idling and wouldn't turn back over

When the engine is idling, the alternator is not charging. Starting the bike will drain a weak battery. A fast idle (1000 rpm or so) will quickly recharge the battery. If the battery is dead and the alternator is not charging the bike will not run. Check the connections at the battery. Remove and clean them. Check the main fuse and all other fuses. (The temp indication may be a false reading due to other problems.)

My GSXR 600 K7 just had a new back tyre fitted, i had rode the bike less than 10k and all of a sudden whilst riding the power just compleatly cut out. No lights what so ever no turn over nothing. I have...

The tire has nothing to do with the loss of power. Check the fuse panel. Also check the battery. Occasionally an internal short can occur in a battery causing this type of problem. Also, an abraded wire could be shorting out causing the fuse to blow.

Smoke from starter cable when starting. cable gets very hot engine will not start

You may have a shorted cell in the battery. Take the battery out and take it to an automotive parts store. Ask them to load test the battery for you. Usually they will do this at no charge.

What happenes is that when you put a load on the battery, trying to start the bike, one cell in the battery shorts out. Now, your battery is only 10 volts instead of 12 volts. The reduced voltage makes the starter motor draw more current. The larger current draw not only heats up the battery cable but is can destroy the insulation on the windings of your starter if it hasn't already done so.

A battery in a motorcycle usually only last for about two years. You can extend the life of the batteries by purchasing a "battery tender" or a "smart charger" and connecting it to your battery whenever you are not riding the bike.

I hope this helps,

03 Suzuki GSXR 750 keeps shutting off while I am riding?? HELP!

Seems you are running entirely off your battery.
Indications are a suspect lighting or source coil is shorting. Resistance test will show discrepancies. Data is available on-line, search technical/electrical manuals from Clymer or Haynes. An auto shop sells cheap multi-meters than you can use. It is a stationary test and will identify individual component problems. As rectifier/regulator, cdi box and wiring/switches/connections all have an effect. These test are outlined within these publications. Cheers (and don't get caught)
