Bike wont start... getting owned *vid*

So I picked up a second-hand 06 gsxr 600 from a guy who broke the frame, all the mechanics have been put back except the speedometer and front wheel. I've had it replaced but I can't seem to get it started.

Symptoms
-Bike wont start- starter buzzes but won't turn over
-Both battery terminals get warm
-Tried to start without gas tank, no results with it on
-Throttle bodies open and close then it sounds like its jamming

Diagnostics
-Wires visually checked with no cuts or rips
-Fuses are checked on the small box
-Kickstand is up, and confirmed not damaged
-Kill switch is ON
-Battery has been replaced

Conclusion
-TPS sensor
-Bad harness
-Bad starter


If theres a pro that lives around in cypress that would help.... i'll buy a em sixpack

terminals get warm? I never knew that was a good sign. That doesnt sound right at all. Is that a battery cable vibrating?

+1....The battery cables getting toasty is sign that the starters kickin but not able to turn the crank. You need to pull the side case cover(I dont recall what side) and manually turn the motor buy hand.

could just try to push start it. That will let you know if it's locked up.

I got the speedometer to work.... dealer mode, and throws up the c-29 which is the secondary throttle position sensor.

DOUBLE AND TRIPPLE CHECK all the pins going into the ECU and make sure they are all plugged ALL THE WAY in. This happened to me with the exact same simptums, and a loose ecu pin is all that it was.

Bike wouldnt start. Had throttle position faults, secondaries on the TB were making some grinding noise and would stay jammed open. Found the loose pin. Plugged it back in the ecu.. Bike started no problem, and no FI codes. I beleive it was a black wire/ground wire.

BTW 06/07 gsxrs dont need the cluster to run. They will start up and run no problem even without it plugged in.

i actually had the wrong plugs in the wrong clips but now i come up to a whole new thing. the gas primes, throttle resets, but no go and i get the _C00 code which is telling me to adjust the tps so im going to see how this goes

I thought C00 was the 'all good' code.

alright, i got the bike to run! with a few friends we were able to push start it and get it running... it started to slowly creep past 260+ degrees so i took her home to cool and try to get it started without a push start but im beginning to think its a bad starter.
