Mst likely the connecters in ur switch are corroded or broken. best way to find out is take seat and rear plastic off. on left side of frame by the seat bolt u should see a little box w plastic cover. remove cover,turn key on and put bike run switch on...the take a screwdrive and jump the red to the black w screwdriver. if it turns over its bad switch or wire. if not there is a 30 amp green fuse in the block w the two wires.if that fuse is blown it cuts the current from ur starter switch to the starter. hope this helps.

SOURCE: bike will not start no power

Touch a 12" piece of wire to one terminal then touch the other end of the wire to the other terminal. Got a really good spark? No spark = bad battery. Okay, so you do get a good spark. Check the wiring harness for an unplugged wire. Also check for loose connections and burned wires. Bad ignition switch? Kill switch turned on?

SOURCE: accessory fuse keeps blowing, headlight not working

I know this sounds aomewhat general, however please give the following some thought:
Check your relays, if you have an aftermarket horn you may have a different relay. To troubleshoot unplug your headlight, unplug your horn, etc.. Turn your ignition switch to accessory only. See if the fuse pops. If it does unplug whatever added accessories you may have still have plugged in. Once you can get the fuse to stop popping, turn the ignition switch to on. Then one at a time plug you accessory, headlight, etc. back in. When you find what pops the fuse, unplug that item, start plugging in the other items, if the fuse has not popped you have potentially isolated the circuit causing the issue. Now check the wiring for loose connections, bad ground, and CHECK the relay if that item has one. Hope this helps,

JP

SOURCE: lights, turn signals, horn don't work

Look for a bad ground connection inside the headlight shell (or possibly elsewhere). The other thing that all of the items you mention that are working intermittently have in common is the ignition switch. With the switch 'on', check for battery voltage at the fuses for the headlight, turn signals, horn, etc. No voltage at the fuses likely means a bad ignition switch.

Suzuki RF 900 not starting


First, make sure you check all fuses. You shouldn't have to even remove the starter to see if it is the problem. It wouldn't hurt to clean the contacts every once in awhile. Just trace the wire from the starter switch to the starter, then pull the wires and clean with sandpaper or wire brush.

I bought a bike that wont turn over and is backfireing what chould the problem be?


Hi It may be excess fuel form the non starting that is giving you the backfire! Change the plugs (if necessary) or at least visually inspect the plugs for sooty deposits and dis similar coloring and condition.Backfiring is almost always a timing issue ! Good Luck

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.

Bike will start but it kills batt after it's been


One highly possible issue could be that you may a sheared generator coupling, it connects the start gear to the generator to keep the battery charged. This happened to my RF and is somewhat common.

Wha kind of tail section will fit a 1995 suzuki rf 900 with single seat and cowl. I hate the banana seat for 2.


Suzuki used to sell a cover for this bike which covered the other section. Otherwise there are numerous aftermarket manufacturers. But,the cheapest way will be to take it to a leather worker for remodeling or commision a fibreglass piece.

Want hold a charge


get a test light and a schematic. unplug stator plug.start bike ,make sure battery has full charge. test each pin on connector that is attatched to the 3 yellow wires.should light on each pin. if all good check for burn marks around connectors, front & back sides, and on wires. if no power on yellow wires, stator problem. if power, plug connector together, now test for voltage in wires on the voltage regulator side of the connector, to see if the voltage is making it through the connector.if there is power to volt. regulator,test w/ multi meter across battery leads to see if there is charging voltage to battery,approximately 13-15 volts. if only battery voltage(12.2 or less) while bike is running,voltage regulator is no good.if charging good, but bike wont start after prolonged sitting(say overnight) a system amp draw test is needed to see if something is staying powered up while bike is not running, drawing down battery.
