Hi and welcome to FixYa,

Initially, check the fuse and fuse holder in the fuse box under the seat. Pay Particular attention to the middle fuse. In some instances, the fuse itself maybe good but the holder is loose or corroded. Do the same for the ignition switch.

Good luck an thank you for asking FixYa.

3. A loose bulb in the socket.
4. Faulty wiring from the neutral switch to the light.

I have a rf 900 Suzuki 97'. The bike is not

mst likely the connecters in ur switch are corroded or broken. best way to find out is take seat and rear plastic off. on left side of frame by the seat bolt u should see a little box w plastic cover. remove cover,turn key on and put bike run switch on...the take a screwdrive and jump the red to the black w screwdriver. if it turns over its bad switch or wire. if not there is a 30 amp green fuse in the block w the two wires.if that fuse is blown it cuts the current from ur starter switch to the starter. hope this helps.

Suzuki RF 900 not starting

First, make sure you check all fuses. You shouldn't have to even remove the starter to see if it is the problem. It wouldn't hurt to clean the contacts every once in awhile. Just trace the wire from the starter switch to the starter, then pull the wires and clean with sandpaper or wire brush.

97 Suzuki LS 650 Savage won't turn over. Battery is charged to 12 volts, and I replaced the fuses, but still nothing. When I push the starter button nothing happens. No clicks, no lights dimming.

if you can arc and get it to work
what are the battery terminals like... clean and tight
check continuity for the earth chassis to battery neg - terminal wire
also the wire voltage to the starter from pos battery
if that checks out
bench test starter
solenoid not kicking out properly or problem with lazy starter motor

Hi, i have a 2008 suzuki boulevard C90T. When i turn on ignition i have power to everything except start button. Is it common for the switch to go bad or should i start tracing wires for a bad one? thank...

Is your kill switch off? And sometimes the buttons get dirty and some contact cleaner flushed through them helps get them working again.
NOTE Make sure the contact cleaner is safe on plastics. Radio Shack has it on the shelf.

1982 Suzuki GS850 GL will only run with the starter button held

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?

Absolutely nothing, hmmmm check the battery charge state (new batteries sometime need charging), battery connections, check the connections at the solenoid, check the ground connection at the engine, (remove and clean it) Be sure the switches are all in the right position, kickstand up, clutch pulled, in neutral, handlebar switch on, ignition sw on ...etc...
check the wires from the starter button to the solenoid, fuses, etc...
