Charged the battery today, went to start it and it won't stay on for longer then 2 seconds. Try to throttle it but it just dies. How am I suppose to check if the charging system is working if it just keeps dying? Also checked the wires on the recitifier nothing seemed burnt or crispy.

On a side note. The power commander that is installed doesn't have any indication that it is on? Are the leds supposed to be on. It's a dynojet PC 3

The STVA on 04-05 gsxr 600s and 750s is prone to crapping out, BUT it shouldn't effect low speed operation at all. My old '04 600 did this too me mid trackday, and the bike ran fine below 6000 rpms.

Someone who's good with these bikes should be able to show you how to at least push the secondary throttle valves open so you can ride the . You'll just have reduced low end torque.

i live in spring, about 5 minutes from Motorcycles Unlimited. If i dont get anything figured out tomorrow, I will just call it a day and bring it there. I need it running, spent to much on this bike initially for it to be not work. Thanks dinosaur, I can give you some money towards getting it up there. any help is greatly appreciated!

Patrick, I called you guys earlier today and if I am unable to figure this out by tonight, I will be dropping it off tomorrow. After paying 4500$ for the bike, the 250$+ towing fee and having to tow it again to the shop for 80$, I am running a little low on funds. Thanks for the help!
For a 2004? :/



Don't know about anyone else but I have seen batteries be so dead that they cause issues even when the engine/alt is running......

bigrex, You can't check stator output without the engine running and unless a voltmeter is hooked up to the battery for the few seconds it runs you can't check charging voltage. You can however check if the R/R is good if it is a SCR design. There are tutorials on the web for this.

Yes, a battery can show good resting voltage, but be unable to deliver full amperage because of fouled plates.

well i was able to trickle charge the battery overnight to were it was full. Put it on the bike, added a gallon of gas(because it seemed low but no light was on), and it started right up and ran. RPMs were idling high at about 3k. Checked the stator and R/R everything checked out. got 14.57v at about 4-5k with highbeam on. Battery is being charged. Drove it around a little bit RPMs stayed at about 3k all the time. Had to twist my throttle forward to get it to idle down. I dropped it off at Motorcycles Unlimited and dude was saying since its a C28 code most likely that is the problem for the idling/stalling. awaiting a full diagnostic.

on a side note i checked the gsxr manual and it said that with the c28 code the bike should run in failsafe. could this code cause it to stall and idle low?

bigrex, Well, it's in good hands now. Failsafe can mean anything from decreased performance to barely running.

Good Luck.

Thanks for all the Information Brad, much appreciated! Waiting to hear back from Motorcycles Unlimited for the final diagnostic.
