06 gsxr wont stay charged!!

my bike was sitting for 6 months or so and when i went to start it back up it was dead. i charged the battery and that worked for a day or two and then it died again. iv been reading alot about the rectifier being a common problem. i took off the rectifier to see if it was burnt and it had two lines in it that looked like it was from heat. i was going to just replace the rectifier but i dont wanna spend the money if it has to do with the stator.

My guess would be the battery just will no longer hold a charge..if its never been replaced and went dead for a long period of time most likely it won't recover

when you do get a new one, get a battery tender too....and plug it in when the bike won't be used for 4 days or more...

My battery from my 2006 gsxr 1000 is still kicking.

Do you have a volt meter?
With the bike idling check voltage, it should be at least 12.8 volts.
Check it again at 5000 rpm and it should be at least 13.2 volts.

If you can drop the battery off I can cycle charge it and then load test it for you, no charge.

change battery first. Most batteries cannot come back from a full discharge and will always give you problems. On a budget... walmart has a $60 battery that fits your gsxr just go in with the measurements

Why go to Walmart for a will fit when I have the correct one with a 1 year warranty for $48.00?

The rectifier is a known problem on this gen gsxr, suzuki refused to issue a recall. I'm willing to bet you have over 10k miles and those lines on the back mean it's burnt from getting too hot. Buy a new or low-mile used one and ur problem will go away until that one burns up.

Get on the gsxr forum and there are tons of threads about it. Some have moved the rectifier to a different location where it gets more air and had success, while I beleive others have switched to the 08+ rectifier whcich does not have the same flaw.

I had the exact same bike as you and went through 3 batteries before I figured it out

It's your stator more than likely. I had same problem my lights would flickr on and off too. Then bike would die.

do the GSXR's use analog or digital voltage regulators? I can't speak for the quality of your stator without seeing test results, but switching to a mosfet-type regulator will solve all kinds of charging system issues. The hokey regulators were an issue on a lot of Hyosungs as well, which used a lot of Suzuki parts-bin stuff. Upgrading to the FH-010 or similar is one of the easiest fixes (assuming your stator is good as well).

more than likely you're battery. if you've already changed that, check the voltage on the battery with the bike running and see what kind of numbers it puts out. if you don't have the tools or know how to do so, bring it by my shop and i'll check it out for you for free fifty free.

if you haven't already bought a battery, I have brand new lifetime warranty batteries for $45 for your bike.

I do not recommend that you ride the bike until you solve the issue.

I had the same symptoms, my voltage regulator/rectifier went out(common issue on our bikes). I continued to ride it since I was about 100 miles from home, I ended up frying the battery(almost exploded) and damaging my ECU.
