Could be the safety switch on the clutch leaver. Turn bar's full right, then left a few times and give it a go.

My Suzuki bandit wont start. There is a spark but it just wont go! There is fuel on some of the plugs when I take them out, and I am wondering if I have flodded the engine and fuel has conjealed in the...


Flooding is a good possibility but fuel take months to congeal. Are your plugs new? Spark plugs may spark in the open but will not spark under pressure - try replacing the spark plugs.

My 1996 suzuki bandit will not come on what do I do ive checked the battery and the fuses they are fine? it was working fine until a couple days ago


is the battery more than 12.5 volts if its not its no good, get another battery...if you dont believe me try and push start it with the key on if it starts and runs kind of crappy at first its because the battery needs to be charged up..nothing that a good twenty minute freeway ride should fix up if the battery is less than two years old.

Suzuki bandit 1996 will not start


If you have spark and still the bike is not starting ( and the timing on the spark is correct) make sure you got fuel flowing to the engine, if fuel is getting there and still the engine doesn't start, check the cylinder head and pistons and make sure you got compression. These are the problems that can cause a bike not starting. Hope it helps

Suzuki 600 bandit won't start


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.
