Suzuki S50 electrical issue

I have a 2008 suzuki s50 with about 3000 kms. when i go to start it, the electrical is on and it is in neutral, i pull in the clutch and the electrical dies. i tried jumping up and down on the seat, which used to work and the electrical would turn on. now it does not work. i have pulled off the seat and checked for loose wires, but nothing that i can see. any ideas?

I had the same problem with mine. It would usually work to just jump down on the seat and everything would come back on. Then one day it wouldn't work. I eventually narrowed it down to the battery connections. The bolts to the battery seemed tight when checked through the access holes on either side of the bike. I removed them and dropped the battery down to find the small bar in the battery post was loose from the front side of the battery. I tightened both of those bolts, put the battery back in and re-connected the wires to the side of the terminals. That was almost 2 months ago and it hasn't happened again yet. If they do come loose again, I'll put some loc-tite on them next time.

Check the battery wires and check the fuse box connections.

Where is battery on s50

I believe like my 2008 it is on the very bottom of the bike on the frame, almost right under the 2 bolts need to be removed and of course the batter cables before removing..make sure you get a charging system test and not just replace battery when a no start or dead battery issue occurs, the S50's have a habit of needing stator.regulator replaced..hope thishelps

I was changing the front disc brake pads on my 2008 Suzuki Boulevard S50. I took the two bolts out that hold the calipers together which caused the fluid to leak out and a small rubber gasket fell out ....

You will need to buy a new rubber gasket kit for caliper from suzuki shop
It is not usual to pull caliper apart for pad replacement, normally unbolt caliper off fork leg and lift of the disk
