I have a Suzuki GSXR 600 and the battery shows 12.6 volts,

Customer Question
I have a Suzuki...

I have a Suzuki GSXR 600 and the battery shows 12.6 volts, but nothing gets illuminated to start the bike...just seems dead?

Mechanic's Assistant: Did you test the battery with a voltmeter? And have you ever changed one before?

Yes. The battery has been replaced and it worked fine for a few days...now the system will not do anything?

Mechanic's Assistant: What year is your 600?

2001

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing your 600 yourself? What have you tried so far?

I checked the main 30 amp fuse and it has continuity...so I am at a loss?

Mechanic's Assistant: Anything else you want the mechanic to know before I connect you?

That's about it...the bike ran fine and just died
