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.

My dr200 won't start with the starter motor I've taking it out and tested it and it turns over but when it's in the bike and I push the button nothing happens can anyone please help me out cheers

Sounds like the starter solenoid is not transferring electrical power to the starter, or starter relay (if fitted) is not working. Check for a good engine earth. Connect a test light to the starter terminal and an earth, press the button, if it does not light, follow the cable to the solenoid and test for power to the solenoid from the battery, check earth to solenoid body and using the test light check the small wire has power when the button is pushed, if no then you are looking at the relay. Silly question, have you checked the side stand switch, kill switch and neutral switch. These all break the power to the starter solenoid. If you bridge any of these switches, please ensure the bike is in neutral. Good Luck

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.

94 suzuki rf 600 lost my key so i hot wired it an it started but when i went to give it gas it would die but it would idle for a min then i went to start it agin an was not gettin lights like i was. i just...

Hello Camron, i would not recommend the hot wire procedure. If you spike the controller it could do a lot of damage. Plus the stator & rectifier are not working properly. You can replace the ignition switch, that comes with 2 new keys cheaper than a locksmith will make one, in most cases. Here are a couple of links for ignition switches that will fit your bike.
I hope this helps.

Bike will start but it kills batt after it's been

One highly possible issue could be that you may a sheared generator coupling, it connects the start gear to the generator to keep the battery charged. This happened to my RF and is somewhat common.

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...
