Question about 1985 Suzuki GSX 550 ES
It won't turn over or any thing else. it's like you don't have the battery hooked up at all.
I would suggest you first check the battery for charge then check the fuses in the block attached to the side of the battery box if thats all ok check the wiring to the ignition if its lost all electrics it has to be between the battery and the ignition

Hi and welcome to FixYa,
Most used 250s are ridden hard either as a starter bike or forced to max out playing catchup with bigger bikes. But unless abused, they tend to have longer usable life than the bigger ones. Often areas that would need your attention/check would be:

if it has reed valves, check them for either cracked or broken pedals. also try starting it with the air filter removed. also make sure the choke is operating properly

It may seem odd but make sure that new battery is fully charged and giving proper voltage and amperage. If that is taken care of check that relay with a simple 12 volt test light to see if the battery voltage is going thru both sides of the relay to the starter, if so then go to the starter wire coming from the relay and see if there is voltage at the starter when you push the start button, if there is power there your problem is probably in the starter motor itself. Be sure to put in a new fuse in the little fuse block, it may sound strange but fuses can look good but be slightly burrned at an end and allow a little power though but not enough to start the engine.
Good luck, Les
