Question about Motorcycles
I have a rf 900 Suzuki 97'. The bike is not starting...I have power to the headlights, horn, turn signals. But when I try starting the bike nothing happens..no sound like its trying to start up. Also I recharged the battery checked all the fuses and they are good and get power as well.
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?

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,

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.
