It could be the starter, or it could also be the starter switch or more over have you first checked tht engine 'kill' switch? If its on 'off' (Kill) position the starter won't operate from the button!

Other way is to short circuit the starter throught the solenoid switch and see if it works.If it does work thn the switch (button) is faulty you may hve toreplace it or sometimes a good cleaning can revive it due to carbon deposits at the contact points.
Thirdly, I hope the battery is at its top performance too!
Hope this helps.

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.
10. Main fuse or circuit breaker may be blown or faulty.
11. Check for engine trouble codes.

How to start my 600 bandit '


Switch the fuel on at the petrol tap. In the olden days you used to have ON, OFF and RES (reserve). Some are now automatic, so you leave it on all the time and when the carburettor request fuel it opens. So it might say AUTO, OFF and RES.

Then you need to find the choke lever. This is usually a button that you pull out on the side of the carb. Push the button back as soon as it starts.

Then some larger bikes have an interlock where you have to hold the front brake on as you operate the starter button. Pull in the clutch too.

When you press the start button, open the throttle about a one eighth throttle. Maintain the revs a little as the bike warms up.

Finally, please be very careful if you do ride it. Defensive driving is the key, look at every road user as someone who can knock you off and ruin that lovely paintwork.

My suzuki gsf 600 bandit 1999 wont start. when i turn the ignition the lights come on but the starter motor makes no noise when i press the ignition, kill switch is set to "engine...


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.
