Question about 2009 Suzuki RMZ450
Hi, Greg did you know your first name is better than your Thumper? and the usual suspects are:
1. Fouled spark plugs.
2. Severely discharged or a damaged battery should have 12.5 volts or more and be able to pass a proper "LOAD" test if necessary, you may have a preliminary reading of 12.5 volts or more but little or zero amperage the battery is faulty and must be replaced, AGM batteries fail in this scenario more so than lead acid batteries.
3. Check 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.
4. Loose connection at ignition coil or plug between ignition sensor and module.
5. Spark plug cables in bad condition, shorting/leaking, spark plug cable connections loose check for spark leakage in the dark.
6. Faulty ignition coil or electronic control module.
7. Faulty CKP, CMP, or BAS sensor.
8. Faulty ignition switch.
9. Tilt sensor needs a reset.
10. Security alarm failing to disarm needs reset

SOURCE: 05 katana 600f no spark!
sounds as if you have an issue with the charging system, try using a volt meter to determine if the bike is charging. To do so you will need to access the battery under the seat, with the bike running hook up the volt meter to the battery terminals, at idle you should have around 11volts when reving you should have around 13volts. If not you may have a bad stator or other electrical issues. good luck

Depending on how hard you ride that will determine the time , I've known of some racing buddies of mine that a total rebuild is sometimes the case,Your manual will give you some indication but the best indication is your judgement on how hard you are going to ride it.

sounds like maybe valves were shimmed too tight,check service manual for clearances...better a little loose than too tight,can cause alot of damage to cam & head,be careful!!

Are the plugs sparking. Short them out to the engine while cranking engine to see spark at electrode. If they are not are you getting power to the coils. If they are sparking do they get wet when they are in place in the engine and it is run. Run it for a minute and remove plugs to check. If they are dry you may have a carb problem. If they are wet check the compression on the engine cylinders you may have blown the head gasket between no 1 and no 2 cylinders.
