Help please on my 07 GSXR600(42000miles)

H everyone,

I changed out my r/r and battery about two weeks ago with the aftermarket mosfet version from Ricks. It’s been doing lovely. Yesterday it cranked up no issue and I commutes to work (32miles). I took lunch and it cranked up no problem I so I went to get some petrol. Turned her off and filled up no problem. I was like a few meters from the air machine so I figured I’d top off the wheels. I started with the kickstand down and shifted into first not realizing that kickstand was down. Crap!!!! So I reset her to start the bike and nada😭😭😭😭. Luckily a fellow rider was near and went to get his jump box. It started up after about the 3rd time pushing the ignition button. I rode back to work and I swear right before work it felt like a small gust of air came from the side of the tank or maybe it was the semi riding in the opposite lane.

That was yesterday. Flash forward to today
I bought new battery tender and charged her once I got home. Wasn't able to do a full charge (2100-0600). Got home.late. been at work since 730 and went out to start her. She was struggling but not like yesterday when nothing happened. I took my meter to her and she was sitting at 11.8 in the cold(only 59 here in Florida)I figured I wouldnt keep trying to start her. Going to get a jump for a coworker hopefully after work.

When I get home I guess I will unhook my alarm system and check voltage.

Work my way through the fuse box testing. Not sure what else it could be.....stator???

Your battery may be toast if it's that low.

"Going to get a jump for a coworker hopefully after work."

Beware of jumpering off a car. You probably would have been better off to bring the battery in to work and let it charge there. However, as Nick said, you may need a new battery. So in that sense some abuse won't mean that much.

I'm going to just go ahead and pull the trigger and get a stator and replace. I'm hoping that the battery will fail once I take it in so I can get it replaced under warranty.

It's much cheaper to actually measure charging voltage and diagnose what is wrong. But lately it seems that randomly buying parts, is the new way to fix things.

Oh well, I happened to blow out my Alternator, a few months later I found my battery was dying so installed a new one, but because the alternator and battery were now brand spanking new, I blew out my 5 year old rectifier a week after I had replaced the battery (requiring me to buy a new one again)

So sometimes, replacing every system in a chain can have its benefit

Nothing saves money quite like spending money to fix stuff without actually testing if that's the issue.

I'm not criticizing but that's why this place is so great. I've often saved a lot of money listening to people who are smarter than me
