purchased 3weeks ago, when I took full custody of this troubled youth. It ran. But wouldnt idle. And it did go into gear..despite the hole in crankcase... non ridable... salvage gotten for cheap. Needing a project. This is the beginning.

1st off, welcome to the forum; always good to see another NorCal rider on here.

2nd not fully understanding what you mean by “slipped”. Sudden loss of display is one thing but sudden loss of engine management?

When you thumb the starter switch clearly your starter is rotating, but is the crankshaft rotating? IE, is the starter fully bolted in and engaging the sprag clutch?

If the starter is fully secured, it is possible the sprag is worn and in need of replacement. I don’t know how common it is on post 2005 GSXRs though. I have a number of other bikes and have replaced sprag clutches on 2 of them. One with half the miles of the other.
