The starter motor could be the culprit, check the starter motor.

If you take an old screwdriver and short it across the 2 terminals of the starter selonoid the motor must turn/swing, if nothing happens then the starter motor may be the fault, this is assuming that the engine is not jammed with either fuel (known as hydraulic lock) seized or some other foreign matter

replace your battery although you have 12 volts your battery is producing very little amps not even enough to energize your start relay let alone your starter motor

SOURCE: suzuki 1400 intruder wont start.. just clicking noise.

It's most likely the connection to the battery. The screws dont tighten in well and you get the famous clicking....I replaced the stock philips screws with a hex bolt and after two years of trying to solve the problen have been starting everytime for the past year no problems. Another gie away is the intermitant starting problem gets worse when wet.

SOURCE: My 2005 Suzuki Boulevard Will not start most of

Same problem here ... 2008 C90T ... dealer no help ... in 3rd or 4th, ignition off, force it to roll backwards until you hear the piston shift ... should start then. Told it's the rear piston stopping at or near top dead center, but also told adjust the decompression will "solve" the issue; anyway, a rolling forward-start in 4th will work, too, otherwise try rolling the bike backwards until you hear, and you will know when the piston moves and then it will start.

My bandit stop running lights come on but wont start or turn over


Hi, Gary and the usual suspects are:
1. Ignition Switch not in the "ON" position.
2. Engine Run Switch in the "OFF" position.
3. Discharged battery, needs to be 12.5 volts or better and be able to pass a "LOAD" test if necessary.
4. Check the battery terminals for damage or corrosion check the battery cables at "BOTH" ends for loose, corroded, or broken connectors, "INSIDE" and outside the cable harness, perform connector wiggle test and check cables with an ohmmeter if necessary.
5. Tip over sensor needs a reset.
6. Faulty ignition switch.
7. Faulty starter button.
8. Faulty kickstand or clutch pull in switch/sensor.
9. Starter control circuit, relay, or solenoid faulty.

1200 suzuki bandit, won't button start, will push & jump start, checked fuses


Try pulling the switch open, and clean the contacts, or make sure everything still connects as it should.
Check your connections at the starter and solenoid.

If the battery is ok and all the dash lights come on, posabilities, Starter push switch has dirty contacts, the starter relay is goin faulty, or the brushes in the starter motor are worn..To test the starter motor find the 2 big cables one coming from the battery Red this will go to a relay/ solinoid and there will be another red one coming out of it to the starter. it you put a screw driver across the 10mm nuts on the leads at the relay yep it will flash, the engine should turn over. if nothing happens tap the starter motor lightly with a hammer and try again. if it works now the brushes are worn out. If you can hear a loud click from the relay/solinoid the starter switch is OK. would the suspect the relay.

Hi and welcome to FixYa,

Initially, try with the sidestand folded up and / or the clutch lever pulled in.  Likewise determine if there is a clicking sound when the start button is pressed:
  • if there is a clicking sound, locate the starter relay. Follow the big cable from the battery's + terminal; it would end in nother terminal of the starter relay:
  1. turn ignition ON and kill switch to RUN;
  2. short the 2 big terminals of the starter relay. Expect a big start. If the starter spins, startr relay is faulty.
  • if there is no click, then the safety interlocks are preventing the relay from engaging. Check the neutral switch/wire and sidestand switch/wire.
It is of course assumed that the battery is fully charged and that the battery cablles/connectors are clen and tight.  Postback result(s) of tests.

Good luck and thank you for asking FixYa.

I had the same thing happen. It's a problem with the starter clutch and how it's attached . A primary bolt is loose. Be sure to have your mechanic use some locktite or really wrench it on there tight--my guy fixed it and then the same thing happened again 10 mos later. But it hasn't happened again in the several years since then. Good luck.
