2006 gsxr 600 issue

Motohoustonians,


My neighbor just bought his first bike and being a new to the bike, he tried jumping the bike with a running car and to make matters worst he had the jumpers reversed. So, needless to say the bike is no longer responding. The bike was functional till he left the light on and drained the battery. He bought a new battery but the bike is a no go. No lights, no fuel pump response. Any suggestions where or what to start checking. I Feel bad for the kid.

Follow the red battery cable to the starter relay, about 4"-6".
There will be a coup,e of green 30 amp fuses. One is the main fuse, the other is a spare. He probably blew the main fuse.

I had electrical problems as well and replaced my battery and it was that I had blew one of the 15 amp fuses so be sure to check those as well They should be pinkish red colored fuses

Send a message via AIM to hondarider77
See this all the time in cars. Swap out the main fuse next to the starter relay.

Since he got the leads wrong while jumping a bike, does he know he has to charge the new battery first?

Check fuses. Chances are that they were blown. Once you replace any blown fuses then we can speculatively troubleshoot.
