Charge the battery then start the bike and check your charging system. If the charging system is good but the battery dies, there is more than likely a current draw on the battery while the key is off. It could also be the battery. Even though it is new, check the electrolite level if it is a standard battery and refill with distilled water. If it's a maintenance free battery, charge it and take it to a shop and have it load tested.

06 Suzuki Boulevard C50 won't start.. all fuses are good everything is working well, But when i hit the starter button hear clicking sound near battery.

Could be a dead battery or a dead starter. Get a jump and see if it will start. Also check that the battery terminals are tight and clean. If it still doesn't start, have a mechanic take a look, you might need a new starter.

My motorcycle still cuts out electrical after a while (btween 0-130 km) The clutch switch and the side stand are bridged out So it ran good for about a month and today it did that again.....Please guys I...

Sounds as though your bridging fix has a problem. When it happens does it restart straight after in neutral or is the battery dead? If it restarts then I would suspect the bridging fix. If the battery is dead then it could possibly be a charging circuit problem

Keith, if you don't already have a solution, let me suggest you check the battery leads. I recently( April 28) had the same problem. A good samaritan told me to check the the negative battery terminal. He was correct, the bolt connecting the negative battery leads to the battery was loose. After tightening, bike started. Norm

Have the battery tested, nothing electrical can be properly diagnosed if the battery is weak. Check fuses with a test light, they can look good and have a minute crack that's not easily seen.

I was replacing my rear blinkers , before i put electrical tape on them i tested them and all was well, added the tape tried again and lo and behold everything went dead..checked battery and it is good,...

Hi,,remove the tape and check the connections,,when you say "everthing went dead i assume you mean all lights ect,,,check your fuse box,,,more than likely the indicator wiring has shorted and blown a fuse.

Yeah, you have a short somewhere in the electrical system, or your alternator is overcharging.

Just Won't Start :o(

Hi and welcome to FixYa,

The click is significant. This indicates that the starting relay is engaging but for some reason, the starter motor is not cranking. This could either indicate a faulty starter relay (particularly the contacts) or a faulty starter motor (specifically, the carbon brushes). To determine which:
  • with the side covers off, expose the starter relay particularly the 2 large terminals;
  • have somebody start the bike normally using the key and button start switch;
  • determine if indeed the clicking is coming from the starter relay;
  • while the start button is still pressed, jump the 2 big terminals;
  • if the engine cranks, then the internal contacts of the starter relay are corroded or burned;
  • if the engine will not crank, then the starter motor is faulty.
Good luck and thank you for using FixYa.
