Alright,

so I have read only a handful of posts on a topic similar to mine; however, not exactly the same problem. I have a 2007 Suzuki GSX-R 750. I was riding in 2nd gear, going approx. 20 mph and all of a sudden the power to my bike goes out and it completely dies. After messing with the ignition and engine kill switch, turning it on and off over and over again, the display wouldn't light up and the bike still had no power. After reading a couple of older posts, I immediately checked the 30A Main Fuse. Sure enough it had blown. After running multiple tests, I discovered that the fuse only pops when I disconnect and reconnect the coupling that attaches to the starter relay. To put it simply, the starter relay was not the problem (althought I was surely convinced). I am terrible with electrical components and how to troubleshoot and fix problems with wires. Any ideas on where to start from here?

I ended up taking it to Suzuki, close to my house to troubleshoot it at least. God knows no matter what they find, they will try to rob me of all of my money, but at least troubleshooting will keep me from going insane and not empty my pockets.

Then I am at a loss about your inquiry. Why ask what to check or how to proceed when you have already taken the bike to Suzuki?

Because you can never get enough help these days. Like I said, God help me with the cost of repair. Luckily, I do know some electrical specialists that work wires for a living on F-15s and those suckers are a hell of a lot more complicated than these sportbikes. Unfortunately, I don't really know them on a personal level.

That's the thing, there is absolutely no power to the motorcycle. The battery reads 12.75 volts DC. It's some craziness with the wiring.

Unplug as much as you can, turn the bike on. If the fuse doesn't pop, turn it off, plug in one thing, and turn it back on. Repeat until you find it.

If it still pops with nothing plugged in, it's most likely a wire exposed somewhere.

basic electrical troubleshooting.... no trick.

My guess is that if he unplugs the R/R, the fuse won't blow. It's a fairly common issue these days.

I had a similar problem on my mates bike. We stripped the bike to do the valves clearances so we
Disconnect just about all the connectors to get the wiring out of the way but my mate didn't want to spend the time to mark which connector went with which, as most were coloured the same. But after putting it all back together we go to start the bike and nothing!
No dash nothing.
We check all fuses and find the main 30amp is blown so we replace it and it blows again as soon as the ignition is turned on.
We go over all the corrections and find we
Had a green connector plugged Into a black one and this is what caused the short, plugged the connector into the right plug and no more problem!

If you've been messing with connectors better check none are
Plugged into the wrong plugs. As some do fit others.

Hey geek, how likely do you think it is the R/R because my battery has shown 12.75 volts now for the last 7 days.

Since you wont answer my question, which I have asked you twice now...no, it's not your R/R.
but it can be. the reason a battery may be ruined by the r/r is constant overage. if the overage is sudden and large, then fuses blow before batteries go bad.
