Question about 2004 Suzuki GSX 600 F (Katana)

1 Answer

The bike has power to ignition, lights, horn etc. but can not get bike to turn over. Fuses look good, bike fired a month ago but hasn't been started since. Tried today and nothing. Does battery need to be fully charged to turn bike over? Bike was recently purchased and the seller started the bike for us. We know about the kickstand switch. Are we missing any other special switch?

Some bikes have a clutch switch where you have to pull the clutch in to start it, i know a lot of suzuki's have them.
also make sure it is in neutral.
and make sure the 'kill switch; on the right hand bar is set to 'run'

Just changed the starter solinoid on my ZZR250 now have no power thru the ignition. Its as dead as a doornail. Checked all fuses in fuse box, also checked the fuse in the solinoid, any ideas? Please


When you say no power through the ignition, do you mean the bike is completely dead with the ignition turned on? Nothing at all works, no lights, brake lights, indicators horn etc.?
If that is the case, then first check that the battery has a charge and the connections are all clean and tight.......and connected the right way round. My bike has a parking light position on the ignition switch and this allows the little parking lights to come on with the key removed. If yours has the same, see if that switches the light on. Do you have a permanent live outlet that you can test? If the battery has power and is connected properly and nothing lights up after doing these checks, then it is either a main fuse or ignition switch problem.

If you do have lights then at least the above is all ruled out and the problem now lies in the starting circuit. Is the kill switch set to run and if so is it working properly? By that, I mean even if it is in the starting position is it actually functioning properly and has clean contacts, all wires connected etc. The same goes for the start button.
At the solenoid there are 2 connections that you will have bolted onto when you changed it. Turn the ignition on and short across these 2 connections with a screwdriver momentarily and see if it spins the starter. If it does then the relay may be faulty. I will attach a youtube link that really explains everything in plain language and is by far the best tutorial I have come across for this type of problem.
Good luck with it all, Steve.

2007 fatboy lost the 'flashing' of turn signals (but they still light up), lost horn, lost rear break light. All fuses in the fusebox are OK. I also lost all gauges (speedo, neutral indicator,...


Your turn signals (but not your running lights), horn and a few other things are on the "accessories" fuse in your electrical circuit, I think. If the fuse is not blown, I would guess that you have a bad connection in the power lead for that circuit. I'm not sure of what I'm going to say here because I don't work on the newer bikes but in the older bikes, the "orange" colored wires carried the battery voltage to the individual components much like "red" wires used to do in most DC circuits. I'd look for a bad connection in a plug somewhere. I hope this helps but like I said, I don't know a lot about the newer bikes. I mostly work on the older bikes that the dealers will not work on any longer.

Good Luck
Steve

I have a 98 yzf1 bike was running been having issues wuth the fuse for the head light started bike today pulled down the drive way bike shut off turned the key off then back on n nothing no lights horn...


Hi, Sounds like you have a bad ignition switch. Also check alternator, so that battery is charging.
Do a test for me, start engine disconnect battery. If alternator is working you should have light and horn. Stop, engine reconnect battery. This will give you a better idea where the problem lies.
Good luck.

Recheck the battery conections, undoing them clean them and then replace them, it may be that when you put the battery on charge if you didnot remove it from the bike you may have blown the main fuse, this is not the fuse located in the fuse box, it is the fuse located at the starter solenoide, follow the poss red wire from the battery to the solenoide, here you will find where the wires attach to the solenoide, a fuse located under a plastic cover, supplys ignition power, i trust you have done a thorough test on the battery. ?

Rocket 3 wont start. dials dead


Lift the tank. Underneath it you'll find a plastic connector block joining loads of wires together. Turn the ignition on and push this connector block together, or twist it around a bit. If the ignition sequence starts, it'll be because the wires in the connector block are corroded. Moving the block sometimes makes a temporary fix, but ultimately it'll happen again until the block or the wiring harness ideally, is replaced.

Go tohttp://www.carlsalter.com/motorcycle-manuals.asp , and get a freebie manual. From what you said, I assume it does not start. If all the electrics are OK, then you have a problem with your fuel pump. BUT check all the wiring to the pump in case there is a loose wire or connection

Lights, turn signals, horn don't work


Look for a bad ground connection inside the headlight shell (or possibly elsewhere). The other thing that all of the items you mention that are working intermittently have in common is the ignition switch. With the switch 'on', check for battery voltage at the fuses for the headlight, turn signals, horn, etc. No voltage at the fuses likely means a bad ignition switch.

06 m50 sat for approx 6 months charged the battery won't start.


from your description, i would sugest you make sure fuel is getting to the injector unit, remove the fuel supply hose.if you have spark at the plugs and fuel getting to the injectors you have isolated the problem. i would also drain the old fuel when you take the hose off and fill the tank with high grade fuel. bikes dont like old gas.

Bike will not start no power


Touch a 12" piece of wire to one terminal then touch the other end of the wire to the other terminal. Got a really good spark? No spark = bad battery. Okay, so you do get a good spark. Check the wiring harness for an unplugged wire. Also check for loose connections and burned wires. Bad ignition switch? Kill switch turned on?
