Well, I over-reacted... I tried starting it for about 10 minutes and finally gave up. Went to my sister-in-laws for my birthday dinner. I hooked her up to a battery charger while I was gone and made a stunning dicovery when i took it back off - the negative cable was loose, way loose
So, I tightened it back up, and everything works great! I really need to go get that damned manual tomorrow...
Now, as for the specs - 1998 GSXR-600, 10k miles, K&N air filter, Mobil 1 oil, Suzuki filter (go figure...), Yoshi aluminum can, 750 USD forks and controls... bodywork is rough, front blinkers are missing, paint is okay, left side mirror is gone, and the are some zip ties in clever places...
She's being torn down completely this winter and put back together better than new!
The only mods I want to do are;
turn signal intregrator
replace the pipe
and then a general cleaning up of everything... The ID10-T panel has to go in favour of something more elegant and simple.
