I have a generic answer for you, this is a problem with your charging system, alernator, regulator.

this is a good site for used parts if needed. heres a site for a manual. >http://www.themotorbookstore.com/suzuki-tl1000-manual.html<
Now I would start looking for a blown fuse, then wiring to & from the alternator, which will be loacated in one of the side covers, (look for a bundle of wires going in) look at any plugs and the metal conectors inside for hot or cooked wiring. repost what you find.

I will add to the above solution.

It is possibly your stator (alternator) but it is difficult to tell on a motorcycle. If you remove the stator cover, keep in mind you will need a new gasket to put it back on. You will not be able to look for burned areas due to the design of stators.

Something to think about, to start a bike, it only requires the battery. At idle, the stator WILL NOT charge the battery, as it does on a car. The stator is only useful with usable RPMs.

The motorcycle runs off the battery only, unlike cars that use the alternator after started, the stator is only used to maintain a charge for the motorcycle.

Replace your battery first. With the bike able to run but not remain running, you don't have a fuse issue either.

2005 dodge neon won't start I've jumped it off with jumper cables and take cables off it and it dies. i got another alternator and tried to jump it and it died when i took jumper cables off still????


I would suggest that you have a load test done on the existing battery as the indications are that it has several dead cells
the vehicle starts of the jumper battery but on removing the leads there is nothing with which to keep the ignition circuit operational
alternators need a current from the battery to start charging as they do not have residual magnetism in the stator so when you take the jumper leads off there is nothing to keep the alternator charging hence no power for the ignition circuit.

Try this instead, find the connection where the ignition switch plugs into the wiring harness, just fallow the wires, disconnect the plug, hook up a 12v battery to the bike, find the solinoid and use a heavy gauge jumper wire to jump from the side the pos+ battery cable connects to over to the side the starter connects to. The bike should start fine, DO NOT forget to unhook the jumper wire after its started or it will ruin the starter.jumper wire jumper wwire

I have a suzuki boulevard c50. The battery died over the winter and had to be charged. It has failed to crank 2 times since then. I jumped it off and rode for about 50 miles home after turning it off it...


It sounds like it is time for a new battery. While the regulator could have been damaged during the jumping procedure, the symptoms you've outlined still point to a bad battery. Motorcycle batteries do not fair well from a complete discharge. Sometimes removing the all of the acid and replacing with new acid will provide another year of service, but not always.

My reasoning for the thinking it is the battery is because of it not being kept charged over the winter and it was working fine before then (charging system usually does not get damaged from non-use). If the bike died when you removed the cable while it was idling, this would suggest the battery as well as a magneto based charging system is very weak at idle and relies on the battery to supplement it during periods of idle. To test my theory, jump the bike off, rev it to 1200 to 1500 RPM and disconnect the jumper cable. If the bike continues to run but dies when you let it idle, then the charging system is functioning and the battery needs to be replaced.

Have 1983 Yamaha Virago 550. Won't maintain charge??


Hi and welcome to FixYa,

Offhand, even if the the stator / charging coil is defective or for that matter even the regulator, the bike should start and run on a fully charged battery. The only problem would be that the bike would die eventually. If haven't been tried, have the battery load tested not just voltmeter test.

Please postback after the load test. Hopefully by then, I would have the wiring diagram.

Good luck and thank you for asking FixYa.

Burgman 250 will not start


Ck fuses and wire connections first. If no problem seen, get bike running and disconnect the ground cable @ battery. If bike dies the problem generally is in the stator or regulator assembly not keeping battery charged. Bike will run untill the battery is too low to keep the ignition system energized and the bike will die. If it continues running w/the ground disconnected, the battery could have a dead cell which will drain the battery in a very short time whether it is running or not.

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.

The Battery and or Stator is bad. Just like on a car if you pull the negative cable off the battery while the car is running and it dies your alternator is bad.
