Question about 2000 Suzuki VL 1500 Intruder LC
I assume the engine is not seized and the battery is charged and good. Push the starter button, if you hear a click from the solenoid the button is good. Now , jump the two cable posts on the starter solenoid. If the starter works you have a bad solenoid. If you push the starter button and tap on the starter with a plastic hammer and the starter works, you need new starter brushes. If anything else in the starter is keeping it from working you need a new starter , the starter parts are not available from the manufacturer.

If u havn't checked the battery with an ohm meter, do so. If the meter reads 12.50 or higher start looking at your starter. The solinoid would click and a bad starter would nothing. You could try tapping on the starter with a small hammer while pressing the start button. If it starts or at least turns over, u need a starter.

SOURCE: battery wont charge
The most common problem is the 3-wire connector being burnt between the stator and regulator/rectifier. It has also been commonly reported that the regulator/rectifier and/or stator may need replacement.

I had a very similar problem last week. Coming home from work, the bike went dead with no electrics at all. Battery and fuse ok. Turned out that the red wire from starter solenoid was broken internally, if wiggled, then power came back. So i cut it off the plug at solenoid and crimped a connector on it, and then connected it to the red terminal on the solenoid. Bingo, it now runs better that it ever has. One proviso here though, by doing what i did, it removes the fuse from the circuit, so not ideal, and needs sorting at some point.

Either, your terminals are dirty, your battery has died or your starter motor has died. Having a manual would help, just Google it and hunt around, you should be able to find a freebie. But you need to get it started and to an auto-electrician, he will diagnose your problem in seconds, and generally it is a freebie.
