Need help troubleshooting my bike ('06 GSXR 600). :(

Looking for some help as im out of ideas.

06 GSXR 600
I was planning to ride Thanksgiving morning so I set the battery tender on her the night before.
Started up and rode with NO issues to the gas station (about 10 miles). I fill up the gas tank.
After the fillup I turn the key and everything is dead. No gauge cluster, no fuel pump, nothing.
Push out of the way and start troubleshooting:

Occasionally gauges would light up, then everything died when I hit the starter.

Occasionally when the gauge cluster does NOT light up I turn the key off and the speedo needle would shoot up then down.

Occasionally the gauge cluster would light up, then flicker, then I would hear fuel pump prime. Hit starter and it all dies.

I put some jumper cables on her and she starts up. Runs for about 5 minutes then died.

All the under seat fuses are good.

Trailered her home thinking the battery took a crap on me.

Installed a brand new battery and I have all the same symptoms. Although now I have noticed that with no cluster etc the headlight does come on (may have been happening at gas station but couldnt tell).

Any ideas?
And yes, I missed Thanksgiving this year... lol

<--- Holy cow, look at that join date vs. post count. Yeah I crashed shortly after joining and just NOW got a new bike. lol

Hitting the starter and everything dying is classic bad battery or bad battery wire connections.

First make sure you have good connections at the battery. (Bright and shiny connections on the terminal and the battery post). Look carefully at the terminals that they are not corroded internally and the wire is not broken just inside the insulation.

Next follow the negative wire to ground and check that connection. Last the positive connection.

Lastly, it could be the ignition switch, but that does not fit the scenerio.

If all the main power circuits are good. Then get out the wiring diagram and start tracing.

One more thought, even though it is a new battery, I would hook up a volt meter to the battery and check that I had about 13 volts with no load and no less then 10v when the bike is cranking.

Please let us know what you find.

Ok, turned out to be the regulator/rectifier. I bought one off ebay and it fixed the problem.

During the process I accidentally swapped two connectors in my tailsection (still not sure what extra one goes to its white and triangle shaped) which caused me to pop a fuse. That fuse in turn killed the cluster. Once I saw what I had done I connected the correct connector and my fuel pump again worked.

The white plug possibly goes to the servo motor if that has been removed.

hopefully you got the OEM replacement. The first time replaced mine i bought an aftermarket one and it fried like not even a month later. So i forked out the moo-lah for a OEM replacement from Oneida and its been working great ever since. None the less, congrats on getting'er going again!
