problems problems problems

Alright where to begin? I bought a 2005 gsxr 600 for 800 bucks from my neighbor. I mean you get what you pay for. Tank full of rust fuel pump wasn't priming. Just issue after issue. Orderd new pump rewired it. boom! Pump priming try to start with starter fluid. bike started and died instantly got my injectors cleaned professionaly but started and ran but wouldn't idle without gas. Adjusted idle screw and it idled by itself but died after a couple mins... adjusted tps sensor bike is good to go. Bought a new battery. Rode around my neighborhood for about 30 mins then battery is dead... I'm guessing stator? Also I just replaced spark plugs. Maybe I didn't put them in tight enough :'( suggestions greatly appreciated. Will give more details upon requestClick image for larger version

How tight your spark plugs won't have anything to do with the battery going dead.

Have you checked the charging voltage with the bike running? It should be north of 14 volts at anything above idle.
If you don't have good voltage then it's something in the charging system. Stator is a possibility. That can be checked with an ohmmeter although I don't know the values you are looking for. A service manual of the interwebz
will help.
Could be voltage regulator?
Could be bad ground. Check where the Negative lead comes off the battery and goes to the frame. That has to be a good clean connection.
Check fuses?
Don't know what else you wanted advice on. It sounds like you got it running ok, just the battery died.

Did you clean out the fuel tank?
Do you have in-line fuel filters?

Hey its you! Yeah cleaned out the tank used some rust eater water based chemical. Then after drain took a vacuum hose in the tank to get that rust and dirt left. No I dropped my batteries off to get charged so I'm gonna pick them up then take my bike to oreillys use their volt meter to check. I will check right now about the ground and let you know. I mean it was a great accomplishment to get it running I just want it rideable lol enjoy my long rides to work. Also yes I need to refer to my manual also. I'll keep you updated after I run that volt test and see what my manual offers me. I'll most likely get desperate and just order a new stator and rectifier for 50 bucks on ebay haha

This is also bugging me. My bike backfires nonstop. Like OK it has a yoshimura. High rpm is understandable. But every time I pull in the clutch there's a huge backfire? If I don't switch gears instantly there's always backfire. Any idea?

how many volts is it putting out?

measure between the terminals with the bike running

if it's less than 13 you have stator issue

I installed this to trouble shoot my charging issue, its been rained on over and over but still keeps working

http://www.aerostich.com/5-function-digital-meter.html

although a voltmeter is only about 15bucks.

+1 definately a stator or r/r issue, and fixing that will make the bike run 20x's better.

This would be the cheapest way to deal with the bike.

Part of me was hoping he would get stuck to the bike as it left the ramp
