take the old battery out and hook a full battery directly to the terminals .the old battery could be so bad ,it will "load" down another battery.or use a pair of jumper cables and a car battery even better

have you tried to replace the battery just to isolate the problem?
check as well if the spark plug if it is ok as well, make sure that it not wet, or try to replace it as well.
check the fuse as well.

My gsxr 1000 (02) wont even turn over? i get power, just bought a new battery, everything comes on, it just wont turn over.. any advice?

Fyi, the clutch must be pulled in. It sounds like you either are not remembering to pull the clutch in or the switch connected to the clutch perch is faulty. You can jump the two wires to test this.

2001 Suzuki GSXR 1000 has a slight miss fire,also won't turn over

On the starting issue alone. It sounds very much like a loose ground connection at the battery or starter perhaps. Sounds crazy but, check you negative connection at the batttery and at the starter. This could explain why it is not a constant issue...yet. Hope this helps, and please post your solution when completed. Thanks,

Double check the voltage on the battery. I have seen batteries with a bad cell when they are brand new.

How fast does a Suzuki GSXR 1000 go? 2002 gsxr 1000r started fine loaded it on trailer went to town came back went to unload it and it would not start was running great turns over good lots of fuel no f1...

Most sports bikes are limited to 300km/h by the manufacturers in an effort to be responsible. Actually the ? was about the 1000 not "most sport bikes". The Suzuki gsxr1000 for 2007 is rev limited to 184 mph. U do the math to figure out kph but in the U.S. who cares about the metric numbers.
