Question about 1995 Suzuki VS 1400 Intruder
Hi, this is my first posting on fixya. i can pop start the bike (had to to get it back home) and it runs fine when it's started but the ignition button won't start it. i checked all of my fuses and they're all good and fine. i took a wire and attached it to the positive terminal on my battery and touched it to the starter terminal with the key on and the starter does what it's supposed to. any ideas on where to look?
Look for a broken/disconnected starter button wire.
Could be a bad starter button.

When you reassembled the bike did you pinch any of the wiring harnesses? Trace the wiring through the bike and make sure everything has a solid connection between their respective power sources and activation switches. Alot of time bikes run wiring under the gas tanks so you need to make sure that you didnt cut anything when pputting it back on (if you removed the tank)

Obviously the CDI is picking up power from the starter button. Check the ignition key switch for proper operation. Chances are that whatever fried the loom also fried part of the switch. Alternate to that, trace the wire powering the CDI system, disconnect it at the source (starter button connection), then find a power source that is live only when the key is turned on and then hook the CDI wire up there.
an I get a “very helpful” rating on this answer?

You have some crushed wiring along the frame. Check the wiring from the switch along the frame under the seat for a rub or a pinch in the insulation. It has a short causing the lights to flash.
