Question about Suzuki Motorcycles

Did starter include a new solenoid? However, there has been a rash of bad "new" solenoids. Try to "jump" around the solenoid to see if it spins the starter motor. If it does, most likely a bad "new" solenoid.

Hi and welcome to FixYa,
Initially, try starting with the clutch lever pulled in and / or the sidestand folded up. Additionally, determine if there is a clicking sound. If there is, then it would most likely be the starter solenoid.
Good luck and thank yu for asking FixYa.

One, or more, of the three necessary ingrediants for combustion are missing: fuel, compression, and a spark (at the right time).
You said that it started to overheat. Find out why. Then, check the engine's compression. You need at least 140 psi of compression, in every cylinder, for the engine to start and run. Low compression indicates either the need for a valve adjustment - or serious engine repairs.

I've got a 2006 and just found this while surfing around...
Realistically, diagnosing the problem behind a bike that won't start, can be a frustrating experience, as there are many potential problems that can create the same symptoms. Here are a couple of guidelines to help determine the root of a "labored" starting problem, and by "labored", we mean that the starter motor kicks in and attemps to turn the engine over, but either can't get it over the "hump", or does so with a lot more effort than usual.
If your battery is over two years old, and you CONSISTENTLY have a labored start, then the first suspect will be the battery.
If she starts cold with no problems, but CONSISTENTLY has labored starting while hot, then the charging system should be checked. A grounding rectifier can actually discharge your battery while you ride. The battery can somewhat recover while sitting, so it may well start the bike while its cold, but then not be able to start it after only a few miles of riding.
If everything on the bike seems to be in perfect order, and you OCCASIONALLY have a labored start, or no-start, for no apparent reason, and with no perceived pattern, then very likely, the rear decomp cam is loose. A good test for this is to place the bike in second or third gear when it won't crank, and push it backwards a few inches while in gear, then try again. If it starts then, you definately have a loose rear cam. Pushing the bike backwards while in gear moves the rear piston back off its compression stroke enough to give the system a running start at it when you push the button. This will only happen when the rear cylinder stops on its compression stroke. Therefore, it seems impossible to predict when it won't start. Might be cold, might be hot, might only happen once today, but maybe three times tomorrow...This occasional no-start is the prime indicator that the problem lies with the rear decomp cam. (If the front cam were out of adjustment, it would NEVER start properly, as both cams would then be off their specs.)

Testimonial: "I thought it might be something with the compression stroke as well, it appeared to labor. Finally replaced the starter, hasn't given me a problem sin"
