I had the same problem on my VL1500. I THINK it gets "flooded" with fuel and then the cylinder is full and will NOT turn. I have used jumper-cables to start the bike when it will not turn over.

I now start my bike with this procedure:
1. Do NOT touch the throttle.
2. Switch on the power.
3. Do NOT touch the throttle.
4. Press the "Start" button and crank the engine a little (1 - 2 seconds)
5. Do NOT touch the throttle.
6. Keep cranking the engine (another 1 - 2 seconds)
7. Open the throttle a VERY LITTLE (approx. 1/10 turn of throttle). keep the throttle slightly open while the engine cranks.
8. Keep cranking the engine and wait for engine to start (another 1 - 10 seconds).

It is still not a perfect start, but at least the engine cranks over now.

Remember that the VL1500 has a "decompression" system that opens the outlet valve for 2 cranks of the engine.

I suggest you FIRST make sure the engine cranks over (NO throttle), and THEN concentrate on starting the big V Twin.

Haedlight is not working on a suzuki vl1500 K5.


Take off the headlight and put power directly to the bulb ( a piece of wire and your car battery will work). If the bulb and fuses are good then try cleaning the starter button. It is a two position switch that both turns the head light off and engages the starter solenoid. If the starter button is defective you will have to replace the right switch assembly to fix the problem.

Bike won't start, '99 1500 Intruder; changed the battery but it won't turn over, just whirs - help please


There appears to be a problem with the starter .. New battery, 'whir' sound when you press the start button ... I suspect the gear is not engaging. Remove the starter if you can ... Otherwise, this might be a job for the shop.

Could be a bad starter push button,poor connection in wiring, bad safety switch.Need to track down with voltmeter if you can.
A good dealer may offer some help if you buy the parts needed from them.
