If you follow the positive cable from the battery it will lead you to the starter solenoid. it's jast a little square that also holds the main fuse. you can check if it's bad just by bridging the to posts together with a set of needle nose pliers. if pushing the start button just makes it click when you bridge it it should activate the starter. if the starter works when you bridge it, you know the solenoid is bad. if your stater still clicks when you bridge it, make sure your battery is at full charge. if your battery is at full charge and it still clicks, your starter is bad.

I have a 1995 gsxr750ws the oil and neutral lights work but no indicators,lights,horn & wont start.I have a new battery.I used a screwdriver across starter solenoid and turnsover.Anyone got any ideas?

Hi, Stuart and the usual suspects are:
1. Ignition Switch not in the "ON" position.
2. Engine Run Switch in the "OFF" position.
3. Discharged battery, needs to be 12.5 volts or better and be able to pass a load test if necessary.
4. Check the battery terminals for damage or corrosion check the battery cables at "BOTH" ends for loose, corroded, or broken connectors, "INSIDE" and outside the cable harness, perform connector wiggle test and check cables with an ohmmeter if necessary.
5. Tip over sensor needs a reset.
6. Faulty ignition switch.
7. Faulty starter button.
8. Faulty kickstand or clutch pull in switch/sensor.
9. Starter control circuit, relay, or solenoid faulty.
10. Main fuse or circuit breaker may be blown or faulty.
11. Check for engine trouble codes.

Hit the start button and nothing happens 2008 750 brute force

Check your starter solenoid. You can trace it by following the power wire from the battery to the small solenoid block that contains a 30 amp fuse. You can bridge the posts on the solenoid by using needle nose pliers or whatever else you may have. If it starts up or you hear the starter run, you have a bad starter solenoid.

I can't get my Suzuki to start, any ideas?

Make sure both battery terminals are connected tightly. If they are, and you know what you're doing, you can bypass the solenoid by disconnecting the heavy cables and touching them together to see if the starter turns. If it turns, the solenoid may need replacing. If it doesn't turn, then the starter needs looking at.

Starter motor stuck on had to dissconnect the battory to stop it off switch ect did not work. if i touch the battory with the lead it continues to turn over

If your starter will not stop turning over then your starter solenoid contact bar is stuck in the closed position. It should only close when you hit the starter button. With the solenoid out of the bike check the solenoid battery terminals for continuity. If there is continuity across the large terminals, replace the starter solenoid

When trying to start my 2001 katana it jus clicks doesnt turn jus clicks..i charged the battery already same..the wire to starter looks exposed and is a little loose were it connects to starter..

it must be tight on the starter.
check battery voltage when fully charged. it should read over 12.5v for a good battery. anything less then get a new one.

The electric start does not work at all... the battery is fine, i think its the starter but i dont know where it is on the bike

Follow the positive cable (biggest wire) from the+ side of battery to the solenoid.Continue from there on the other big wire and it will take you to the starter.

To test the starter place he bike in neutral. Jump from the positive terminal of the battery to to the big wire that is connected to the starter. Use heavy gauge wire or it will burn up
Do not clamp this test wire on.
If the starter does not work its bad. IF IT DOES THEN THE SOLENOID IS BAD.

BE CAREFUL and Good Luck

I try to start my bike and it just clicks, it used to turn on with no problem but doesnt anymore thought was battery but charged it and still just clicks

Well, the first question is, where is the clicking from. second, check all the connections from the batterie to starter, and to the ground. sounds to me like a bad starter or poor connection somewhere. was the bike laid down? The starter switch should be fine because it is activating the solenoid, or so it seems.

My suzuki katana 750 will not start and there is a new charged battery in it. Why will it not start? The electric starter button does nothing, other than dim the lights. I checked the fuses and they seem...

It sounds like your battery is no good. have it load tested a good battery under a load shouldn't drop below 11 volts. if you starter button is only dimming the light it is a good guess that your getting power to the swtich and the starter motor but the battery dosen't have a juice to turn the motor.
good luck

01SUZUKI KATANA GSX 600F Bad Starter/Relay Switch~that is the ?

If there is a clicking noise when you hit the starter button, then the relay should be fine.
If there is no sound, check the fuses before removing the starter.
