Is the engine not turning over? If it doesn't even turn over, and you already pulled the starter to test it, then it would probably be the selinoid or just a bad ground on the selinoid or the starter. Sometimes, if you take a screwdriver and touch it across the post on the starter selinoid, it will clear the ground and then work fine (make sure not to touch the metal part of the screwdriver when you do it, it will hurt badly). If the engine is already turning over, but doesn't start, let me know and I will give you some other ideas.

My suzuki tl1000r wont crank or start

Check the obvious things first. Like is there any power in the battery? If so then is it reasonably charged up? If so then it may well be either the starter unit or the "ignition switch").

My 2000 tlr 1000, i put the key in and everything comes on then i hit the start button and a click then everything dies after a while i can put the key in and do the same process all over again any help...

It is the starter Relay over top of the Battery box. You will have to take the side fairing off to get to it. it has a four wire plug in it and two fuses and to wires coming off. just unplug the plug take the hot lead from battery off the relay and then the starter wire off and replace.

Where is the 30 amp fuse on the starter relay. I have a 97 tl 1000s zuki.

There is often one under the plastic cover of the starter solenoid.

Coils wont fire,and hit start button and wont turn over,can jump starter relay and will turn over

Try putting power to the small red on relay, this actuates the solenoid, if power now goes to starter its OK (if not replace). Then check the Start Button contacts are good - check for continuity across it - & all interlocks (neutral / clutch & side-stand switches) work OK. Also check for continuity between the start button & starter relay + from relay to solenoid

Ride safe

My 2002 suzuki tl 1000 is not starting and the battery its good what could it be. when i turn the ignition nothing turn on i check the the relay an fuses and ther good

Check the ignition coil unit to start with. Is the spark blue or orange? Take sparkplug out,..put on plug cap...touch bottom edge of plug onto metal..[cyl. head], turn bike over...and check for spark color. If spark is "orange",..the coil is shot...replace it.

Headlight and ignition button not working

The main system fuse in not in the fuse panel but on the starter relay. This is a 30A fuse - there should also be a spare fuse on board the relay. The starter relay is located just above the top rear corner of the battery box.
Also inspect the connector plug to the relay itself - this frequently suffers from poor electrical connection as all system power (other than starter) goes through the red & red/white wires on this plug.

I have a 1998 suzuki tl 1000 r and it will not start what do i need to do

Hi and welcome to FixYa,

By " will not start  " I presume you mean that the starter motor will not spin. If yes:
  • try with the clutch lever pulled in and/or the side stand folded up. If it works, then the safety interlocks have to be checked;
  • if there is a clicking sound, follow the battery cable from the battery's + terminal;
  • it would end in 1 of the terminals of the starter relay;
  • while pushing on the start button, short the 2 big terminals of the starter relay on the nuts (not on the threaded portion);
  • expect a big spark;
  • if the starter motor spins when shorting the 2 terminals, the starter relay is faulty;
  • if  no spin, then the starter motor is faulty, most likely the carbon brushes.

Should the above be not applicable yo your concern, please postback and describe fully the problem.

Goodluck and thank you for asking FixYa.

97 TL 1000 won't start after winter storage

Install new sparkplugs. Activate choke. Do not touch throttle. Push starter button. Do not touch throttle. If bike stalls repeat until it stays running, then you may give it a little throttle. If I give my TL any throttle on start up it floods. It usually takes 2 or 3 tries where the bike starts then stalls before it stays running. DO NOT TOUCH THROTTLE UNTIL IT IDLES. THEN GENTLEY.
