Non starter

My mate went out today on his gsxr 1000 k2.

Parked up to go shop, come out, put key in, fuel pump primes, clutch in and hit the starter and nothing the only thing that happens is the fuel pump repriming.
It doesn't even turn over, it's ridden in all weather as well.  He's sprayed the switch gear and stand switch with wd40 but still no go.
Any ideas people?
Thanks mark

It sounds like a safety cut out switch,how about the neutral light,you could bypass the sidestand switch.

Given the time

of year, what state is the battery in?

A cold snap will kill an battery as it deteriorates over time.

I think it's water related myself because he went through water past his pegs.

The bike hasn't showed any signs of battery problems, I've passed on about the other bits and pieces that's been suggested so I'll up date when he has a fiddle. 
Thanks mark

Suzuki GSXR 1000K2

Hi Sdmark

Hmm think the first thing now your mate needs to do is get the fault codes up to see if there's any  obvious fault.As you have mentioned the starter relay(which is now ten years old) could well be rooted,check the main 30A fuse in the starter relay and the two 10A and 15A fuses in the fuse box.Good Luck

KCMC:tongue:

sorry mate, i didnt mention that we put it in dealer mode and we got no codes at all.

i got him to check all fuses yesterday and he said there fine.

he bypassed the side stand switch, so we'll test the starter and see how how we go.

cheers

Not sure

What it does to be honest, I've not been able to help him because I've been bed ridden with a virus, and because he needs his bike for work he decided to take it to his mechanic. 

I'll let you know what the score is when he gets it back.
Thanks mark
