What has happened is that the ignition switch where you put the key has a internal short and will not kill the power, there are two choices.... replace it of corse or you could try taking it apart and removing all the tumblers and twisting it, but by going that you will no longer need a key, i would replace it and in the mean time discount the neg. wire on the battery to keep it from going dead

Ignition turns but bike dont start

I read your problem as bike turns over on starter but won't fire up. Check all fuses first, check the fuel if it is old get new fuel. Did the problem suddenly happen or has the bike been standing for a while.

Have you checked the kill switch is set to the run position. Has the fuel gone onto reserve. Try opening the filler cap and leave it open while trying to start. Do you need to pull in the clutch lever to start the bike, my Suzi SV will crank over but only starts when the clutch lever is pulled in. Do you have alarm fitted if so it may have disabled the ignition. If your ignition key has an electronic chip fitted this may be the cause of your problem. If normal ignition/key are fitted has the switch got any thing inside it i.e. water that has shorted it out. Spray switch through key slot with WD 40 or similar. Try removing 1 spark plug cap fit an a spare spark plug into the cap and lay it on the engine. Does it spark when the engine turns over. If so possible a fuel problem.

Cutting out while riding

I have a bike that at one time I'd be riding along, and the motor would die, and all lights and instrument go out, as if I turn it off with the key.

Turn key off, back on, and all would be fine until the next time.

It turned out to be a bad ignition switch.

My zx7r, ive got no Ignition or Neutral light, I have replaced the ignitor unit,the clutch switch, the battery,the side stand switch,the junction box, the fuel pump and still no ignition? I took off my...

Hi, Anonymous the ignition circuit cut-off system comprising of the side stand switch, clutch switch and neutral switch has the following functions:
a. It prevents starting when the transmission is in gear and the side stand is up, but the clutch lever is not pulled.
b. It prevents starting when the transmission is in gear and the clutch lever is pulled, but the side stand is still down.
c. It cuts the running engine when the transmission is in gear and the side stand is moved down.
Periodically check the operation of the ignition circuit cut-off system according to the following tests.
With the engine turned off:
1. Move the side stand down.
2. Make sure that the engine stop switch is set to "RUN"
3. Turn the key to "ON".
4. Shift the transmission into the neutral position.
5. Push the start switch if the engine does not start the neutral switch may be faulty.
With the engine still running:
6. Move the side stand up.
7. Keep the clutch lever pulled.
8. Shift the transmission into gear.
9. Move the side stand down if the engine does not stall you may have a faulty side stand switch.
After the engine has stalled:
10. Move the side stand up.
11. Keep the clutch lever pulled.
12. Push the start switch if the engine does not start you may have a faulty clutch switch.
This check is most reliable if performed with a warmed-up engine.

My ignition won't turn on my 94 katana

Not unusual for older bikes with forklocks integrated into the ignition switch to have this problem. If you can wiggle the key or turn it around and insert it the other way and the lock can be manipulated to turn then your key is most likely worn out. A good locksmith may be able to make you a new key that will work but you will have to remove the lock and take it to him. This may be close to the price of a new switch.

Troubleshooting for laverda motorcycles

Did your bike quit whilst it was running, or is the problem that it won't turn over on the starter when you try to start it?Position 1 of the ignition switch should allow the starter to be operated and the engine to fire up. Position 2 is for parking lights only. The ignition switch can suffer poor internal contacts with age. It may have been replaced with the wrong type of switch if you say it turns over in position 2. Have you checked the fuses? If they are OK, try bypassing the ignition switch completely.If you are running the original ignition, the control box under the tank can fail. Check that there is a spark on all three plugs. THEY ALL MUST BE KEPT EARTHED when turning the engine over to avoid destroying the ignition module.

Sounds like you have linked these up to ignition switch out feed to the kill switch/running curcuit rather than the lighting curcuit out from the ignition. most bike run 2 somtimes 3 curcuits out from the ignition switch one running curcuit and one lighting.

No ignition, when key is in no dash lights turn on. New battery and new fuses but still won't turn on

give the kill switch a look over they break down especially if you as with many people use it regularly. this will cut everything on most bikes.

I have a '99 FZS Fazer 600, and it won't start. I've been having problems with the battery running down when riding with lights on, and I sometimes have to push start the bike. Now though, the bike cut out...

i had same problem turned out to be electrical issue check all your wiring connections under the seat and under your fuel tank and if there all fine try checking that your fuel pump motor is running mine wasnt because of damp on my wiring connectors. when you turn on the ignition the bike should click a few times and your fuel pump should come on look under your tank looks like this with 2 tubes running from your fuel tank
this needs to be running or you will be riding the bike on gravity fed fuel and as soon as you open the bike up you will not get enough to the engine and will cut out hope this helps
