20 Most Recent 2008 Suzuki GSX-R 600 - Page 2 Questions & Answers


I would check your connections and grounds. I would check the voltage of the battery with the bike off and then compare it to the voltage when the bike is running to see if the battery is charging. Your may have enough voltage to run lights but not enough amperage to crank. Is the new battery full of acid? silly question but I have seen this happen before, the guy puts the wrong amount in it.
Check your fuses too. I would verify that its charging before trying to chase down any current draws of shorts.

could well be the battery has just gone flat starting the engine up and running it for a fuw minuets knocks more out the battery that you put in and batterys dont like cold weather any how if your going to leave the bike standing around not being driven go out and buy yourself a 12 volt 2.5watt solar charger hook this to the battery and it will keep the battery toped up even in dull weather,,,,i have them on my bikes all year round,cheap power!!!

Take it to a dealer. Fi means some breakdown, dealer can retrieve code.

Hi Junhayabusa, you have a dead short which is usually the easiest to find. Using a test light connected to the hot side of the blown fuse holder, start probing the wire leaving the fuse holder about an inch away the test light should illuminate, keep probing towards the ignition switch until the test light no longer illuminates you are now very close to the short.

Check the power regulator from the alternator to the battery line.

Don't listen to the idot that said to change your oil at 39 miles! If you only have 39 miles on your bike and your oil light is on it mean there is low oil pressure so you need more oil in it. Cause the only reason that light goes on is when theres not enough oil in it. Not because you need an oil change.Also the oil change should be done at least every 3,000 miles but I do mine at 2,500. Also When you change the oil for the first time, you want to change the Filter as well. Every oil change there after you dont have to change the filter every time, you can do it every other oil change if you choose to. And always fill it up to in between the lines of your sight glass. and always makesure that after you put oil in it you start it up and for about 30-60 seconds then shut off and let sit for about an hour and add oil as needed.

0 - 60 is 3 second in first gear, 0 - 100 is 5 seconds in 3rd gear, but you have to wind out 2nd pretty quick and power shift into 3rd. Don*t forget to breathe !!!

When the engine is idling, the alternator is not charging. Starting the bike will drain a weak battery. A fast idle (1000 rpm or so) will quickly recharge the battery. If the battery is dead and the alternator is not charging the bike will not run. Check the connections at the battery. Remove and clean them. Check the main fuse and all other fuses. (The temp indication may be a false reading due to other problems.)

You will need to go to a dealer and have them hook up a code reader. Only a serious problem will cause the Fuel Injection computer to cause the engine not to run. Please rate my answer. Thanks!

C00 means there is nothing wrong that the computer recognizes. you need to give alot more info to answer correctly. some issues do not throw a code i.e. bad plugs (unless its the coil to that plug), dirty injectors etc.

Well its not starting because you don't have enough voltage. The most likely reason your battery is low is because your not charging when riding due to a bad rectifier/regulator, they go out a lot on GSX-R's. Had to replace mine 3 times already on a 2009 gixxer 600, they put them in a bad place and they get so hot they go bad.
