Question about 2005 Suzuki SV 1000 S

1 Answer

My Suzuki sv1000s has a short circuit and cannot start

Since a couple of days ago my Suzuki started to have a short circuit which is creating a lot of problems. When I turn the starter key on and I try to switch on the bike either the front panel doesn't light or, if it lights on, it goes off as soon as I try to start the bike with the classical noice of a short circuit. I noticed that, if I turn the stearing bar completely to the right, I can light the panel on and even start the bike but, after driving it for a while, the red led of the front panel goes on and the bike switch off. Any suggestion? Many thanks. Giuseppe Semenza - Italian Consulate General Shanghai

    bike went down and bent bars into tank on rights side and scraped the speedo some.
    fixed damaged bars, mirror and rear tail light.
    noticed the speedo comes on by itself and shows miles.
    also when the front brake lever is pulled with no key, in run or off it will light the speedo and show miles. I thinking short either in the speedo, run switch housing.

You will need to remove the front fairing and locate the loose connection or bare wire,Once fairing is removed,you can locate by turning the power on and touching each connector until the power comes on or goes off,Then just fix the loose connection or bare wire without removing anything else.

O7 rhino 660 runs good,then backfires and stalls.starts every crank,but will run short time then stalls.does not backfire everytime.seems like it runs longer when it sets couple of days.

I would overhaul the carby and check for corrosion in the main jet and other circuits
if it is a 2 stroke I would check the crank shaft seals as they may be hard and leaking mixture and running lean ( backfiring)

Hello, My vx800 with a new batery has a problem starting. When I push the startbutton nothing seems to happen, but 10's of seconds later, or pushing the button a couple of times the motor suddenly...

clean and tighten all the battery connections, and I would test the start switch for a slight short or bad connection , remember that a bike has to be driven about 15 minutes for each start ,, motorcycles take a lot of amps to crank them over, and battery re charge is slow ,, so keep that in mind,

I was riding my 2005 Suzuki LS650 (S40) a couple of nights ago, and my headlight went out. I purchased a new headlight bulb, and that still wasn't the problem. I then tried changing the two fuses,...

Hi, does the bike start and run, if yes, apart from lights and horn check what else works or does not work. If the bike won't start try checking the battery if OK find the starter solenoid and check the fuse on that. I had a similar problem many years ago on a Honda. turned out to be a blown rectifier/regulator. If you do cure the fault please remember to check the battery charging circuit is working properly. At idle a meter reading of around 13 volts is normal this should rise to 14/14,5 volts at 5,000 rpm. Hope this is some help.

This requires some troubleshooting, ruling out the coils, triggering mechanism, computer control module and associated wiring. If you were to tackle it yourself, you'll need to buy a service manual. Online at say amazon for example they're reasonable. It's gonna require some expertise.

"Armstrong" torque, you'll probably be the one working on it the next time and you'll want to be able to get it back off..look i race motorcycles and how i solve my torque problems is that in order to race in competition all brake, axle pinch bolts, and radiator caps, oil fill caps, drain plugs, and all hose clamps, must be lockwired it took me about three days and a lot of little .032 drill bits to drill holes in all my bolts, yes even the little main axle tensioner nuts, believe me they vibrate off...i lost two already and i lost a couple of seat hold down bolts, so when i race i lockwire those down also...but the good part about this is that i dont need to torgue them down, i tightenen them up as tight as i prefer using common sence very tight on main axle bolts and fairly tight on everything else and then whenever i ride my bike, i never have to worry if my bolts are loose..just one look at my lockwire being present garunties that they're tight!

My 1996 suzuki bandit will not come on what do I do ive checked the battery and the fuses they are fine? it was working fine until a couple days ago

is the battery more than 12.5 volts if its not its no good, get another battery...if you dont believe me try and push start it with the key on if it starts and runs kind of crappy at first its because the battery needs to be charged up..nothing that a good twenty minute freeway ride should fix up if the battery is less than two years old.

Suzuki C90 Won't Start

Check your battery cables, especially the ground cable. Check your ignition switch for loose wires/connections. Check your fuse box. Check your wiring harness for shorts and broken wires. When you say "battery seems to have plenty of power" what does that mean? What test(s) did you perform on it?
