Question about 2005 Suzuki Boulevard C50

I tried to crank my bike yesterday and it would not turn over completely. The clutch switch box below the clutch came loose and I think that is where the problem is coming from but I am not sure.

2002 yz 125 when I put it in gear it will shut off acts like the clutch is not working when I adjust it on the handle bars it slips


Mechanical issue: clutch not disengaging completely...
engine off - put in gear and roll back and forth with clutch released does engine stop the bike from rolling? Now pull clutch lever in and try rolling again is clutch cable adjusted properly?
Electrical issue: bike thinks clutch is still engaged and kills motor when not in neutral
Is the clutch switch properly connected and working? Is it adjusted properly? Use a multimeter to read resistance across switch contacts does it change state when clutch is pulled in?

Bike dies when put in gear


Hi Ron, I would check the clutch interface switch at the clutch lever it sounds as if it is either faulty, broken, come loose or stuck. Some bikes have loads of problems with this beastie. Pull in the clutch lever then try spraying some lube between the lever and the stock and see if you can see the switch plunger move. You might have to remove the clutch lever completely to see this if you do then you should be able to push the plunger in by finger and see it spring back out. The whole switch does in some cases come loose if you look for 2 wires going into the clutch lever stock see it the thing they go into is loose or pushed out, normally they just push back with a slight click. When you operate the clutch lever the switch plunger should move out allowing the bike to start in gear. On my Suzuki you have to operate the clutch lever to start even in neutral. Hope this helps

I have replaced battery cables, solenoid, and battery with new parts and still can't get bike to turn over. All power works, lights, etc., but won't start.


Probably the interlocks preventing the start....typically on a Yamaha street bike...

First...is the Engine Stop switch ON (the kill switch)
Is the bike in Neutral and does it show as neutral on the dash....
if so it SHOULD crank....however sometimes a relay hangs up....so try the alternative..
you can start it in gear but only if...
a) The sidestand is up -theres a switch to detect its retracted to its resting place
b) the clutch is pulled in -thers a clutch switch on the lever that detects the lever is pulled in.

If the bike was in neutral but only starts with clutch in and sidestand up, there is an issue with a relay.

If none of the above allows it to start....your tip over switch may be bad, loose connection etc.
Let us know how you make out.

I have no history on this 1990 virago I bought yesterday. Its been stood for I don't know how long. Checks out ok but starter button doesnt work


There are a few safety interlocks on most Yamaha street bikes.
The starter circuit will only operate if:
the bike is in neutral and the neutral light indicates this OR
if the bike is in gear (or neutral light not showing) you must have the clutch pulled in and the sidestand must be up (there is a clutch lever switch and a sidestand switch )
The engine stop switch "kill switch" on right handlebar has to be in the RUN position to allow starter cranking.

Motorbike yamaha will not start


Didn't say much about what it does or doesn't do as trying to start. The batrtey all the way up? if not it can refuse to start even if cranking 2002 and newer may push start but only if the battery is near good 04 and newer are fuel injection and a low or bad battery is a no start on it's own the modern glass mat batteries don't take a jump very well as they resist being pushed back to full voltage even with a car battery. Cranks good with a good battery. Got gas and the valve on? Carb bikes may have to have the fuel pet on prime to start a (dry) motor. The fuel injection bikes have to have the good battery or the fuel pump can be below theasehold and the relay won't turn the pump on. All the lights and others horn ect working? No crank can be clutch switch kickstand switch if the locic box is burnt out or low voltage, Neutral light working? if not the kickstand has to be up for crank. Burn the strarter out cranking with low battery? Strong click when pushing the start button says the safty switches are working. and the starter could be bad or lost it's ground. Will the engin turn? put the bike in higher gear and push it with the clutch out to see if it will turn good compression may be hard to push but not impossible as the starter and you have about the same power, remember they used to have kickers and this one had one it'd work to start it. Carb bikes have drain bolts on the float bowels and little hses hooked to them if their still there open the screws to see that theres gas or something else in the corbs. and will more come from the tank? Spark the plug wires snap to the plugs and are hard to remove if good put a plug ( any good plug will do) and crank the engine to see the spark at the wire. if not kill switches crash swiches may have to be reset then the key on and off too. lfter that its lookto see whats missing as compression spark and fuel are all it needs to run. If it jumped time the compression won't be good or out rajous. Exhaust stopped up? I've seena mouse store corn in the exhaust and forget wher he packed it. seen a R6 completly full! no start air cleaner housings get filled the same way. these don't apply if the bike had been running recently. Bad or poor battery most likly cause of no start then cable connections

Bike will not crank


it's not the starter or rectifier for sure! check start switch, clutch switch, and kickstand switch. if all are good then check fuses and wiring.
