All power gone randomely

I have an '02 gsxr 600. I was pulling it out of a parking spot and when i went to hit the starter all power to the bike shut off. No lights, no noise from the fuel pump....nothing. Nothing happens when i turn the key to on. I checked the ignition fuse but that seems to be fine.

any ideas?

thanks for the help!

Ignition switch or right hand control switch is being faulty.

sorry for my ignorance i'm new to bikes. Is the right hand control switch the same as the engine cut off switch? I dont think it could be that since nothing goes on, not even my lights or anything. It seems that even if that switch is in the off position i should still be able to get lights and gauges. Also I really doubt its the battery since it was so sudden, if it were the battery i would expect a gradual issue with starting and lights and so forth. Not an immediate problem with everything dieing at once.

i guess i'll pull the ignition switch and see what happens.

Sometimes batteries are like lightbulbs, you flip the switch and their blown. Its not always a gradual decrease in power.

I would clean the battery connections, and make sure they are good and tight as well.
