Bike died mid-ride, won’t start

So the other day I was coming back from a ride and my bike suddenly lost all power. The throttle wouldn’t respond but the dash was still on. I pulled over and saw smoke coming from under my seat (it turned out to be my battery). I thought my battery was toast so I put a brand new one in. Nothing. I also replaced a few mysteriously burnt fuses. Nothing. The fuel pump refuses to prime and the starter won’t turn over. Even with a bum stator/rectifier it should be able to achieve both of these things right? Days prior to this the bike was getting harder to start and I would smell sulfur every time I finished riding. I’ve looked around for something similar but can’t find anything that has to do with both a starter and fuel pump not working. If you have any idea what might be happening please let me know.

Re: Bike died mid-ride, wonít start

Sulphur is battery related imo. I'd check for a short somewhere. Bad rectifier/stator may have burnt your wire harness somewhere.

Great a bright light and go over your harness and/or electrical connections. I wonder if you burned out your ECU.

Would this be possible if the dash still completely works?

You fucked your ECU.

All fuses, relays, and connections need to be checked, now.

You need to check your R/R and stator- at least one of them is knackered.

Next time, fix things when they become suspicious- otherwise, you will need to replace a lot more- like now.

Check all ur wire connectors mine kinda did the same thing without the smell and I had some connectors that were burnt so I just cut them and wired my wires together and now no problems and it's been almost 5 months and about 1500 miles since and still runs top notch for a 99 gixxer I ride it to work everyday. Good luck bro
