2001 suzuki vs800 new battery still no power.

I just put in a new battery on this bike, which is a new buy for me by the way. Hooked positive to postive negative to negative. Went to start it and it has no power at all. No lights, nothing. Is there a fuse or something that may have blown? What should I look at? Trying to do it myself as much as possible.

Check the MAIN FUSE located near the battery. This fuse looks like it is just a strip of metal but it protects the entire motorcycle. The wire from the battery leads directly to it.
Good Luck

Replaced the battery on my bike. Now I get no power at all. Connections have been double checked.


Ground or fusible link. If it is indeed a hot Battery put a test light on the negative side of the battery touch the positive side to see if it lights up. Move the ground down to the frame, touch the positive again to see if it lights up. if it does follow all the positive wires with the light, if doesn't light up hooked to the frame you have a bad ground.

How do I remove the battery from my 1996 Suzuki VS800 Intruder? Thanks Terry F


You asked a specific question, thanks. I don't have experience with your specific bike ... but my general answer may apply. Remove the seat. Should be one or two bolts at the rear of the seat to remove. The battery will be below the seat.

Thanks for your question

How do I test for a bad solenoid on a 1994 Suzuki Intruder vs800


I'm assuming when you press the start button will not turn over. Look for the solonoid ( Relay) and you will see two heavy guage wire one goes to starter and the other to the battery terminal positive. Where the two wires meet at the relay jump with a heavy wire 10 guage it will by pass the relay if it starts your relay is bad.

Make sure your battey is hot bike in nuetral and clutch lever squeezed

sounds like a charging system. same thing happens with cars when the alternator goes kaput. so i would say check your charging system weather it be an alternator or generator.

Just bought a 2001 vs800 intruder,got it home and will not start


If you're getting no lights then it is either the ignition switch or the battery is not making connection. Check the battery with a multi-meter. Check the fusebox with a multi-meter, any power to any fuses there with key on?

It won't start. put it up to my car battery to try and jump it


you need a new battery. the current one is no longer capable of holding a charge or storing energy.

when you do buy one, remember to top charge it off the bike, then install it.

Battery


it (assuming it is a VS800) is in a trap door under the bike between the frame. disconnect the negative lug (left side) then the positive (right side) (this will be a small slotted screw viewable through a postage stamp sized window on the side of the battery cover) from underneath you remove the two front trap-door bolts and the cover will swing downward (be ready to support it as it swings) to add clearance have the back wheel up on a small thin board and one of equal size under the side stand for more info on suzuki intruders and boulevard series bikes check with www.intruderalert.com
