06 GSXR 750 Cut Off While Riding

a couple weeks back i was riding in 6th gear, got off at an exit and started downshifting, got to 4th gear and then my bike just lost all power to the engine. the lights were on but the gear indicator read " - " as if i accidentally hit the engine cut off switch. i turned the bike off and then it went back on like nothing was wrong so i thought i might have hit the killswitch and didnt notice. BUT today i turned on the bike started leaving the parking lot, got to 2nd gear and then it cut off again. this time i DEFINETLY didnt hit the switch. I shut it off then turned it back on .. it stuttered for a second then turn on and i rode home like nothing. Extremely weird, random, and confusing. Has this happened to anyone else or does someone know what might be wrong? input is appreciated

you can open up the switch, probably just or close to 2 screws like my bike and open it up and see if anything is disconnected. maybe re solder

Sounds like your bike is broken and cursed.

You should probably just give it to me.

Probably your kickstand switch.
See if your kickstand is not going up all the way/binding or the spring is loose.
it's a common issue on the GSXR's, you'll hit a bump and the kickstand will break contact with the switch causing the bike to kill.

Mine just did this two days ago. Well unbeknownst to me after i popped a whoolie and came down my bike shut off. Come to find out the little sensor by the battery moved. I was told this has to be positioned right or the bike will shut down. I think it's the same thing previously mentioned or the kickstand switch like Patrick said.

Definitely check the kickstand switch, sounds like your culprit.

We have experienced the same situation on an 08 GSXR 600. Come to find out the rectifier was going bad. After doing some research we called Suzuki and there was actually a recall on the rectifiers for that model. There could be multiple reasons why this is happening, but from experience, replacing the rectifier solved that problem. I hope everything works out and you get back up and running!

** Revised** We had a similar experience on an 08 GSXR 600, but the bike was cutting off the power completely and wouldn't start afterwards.

my kick stand will get chain lube in it and gunk up, preventing it from going up all the way every time. i'll go to drive off and it will die when i put it into gear. this might be happening to you except the stand moves after you start riding.

but definitely check your kill switch as well. both of these things are relatively simple to remedy. if you still have issues, report back and we can go from there.
