Tl1000r Wont Start

My tl wont start @ first I could push start it just so I could ride it and keep up with it. I checked the battery and everything is fine there. The run switch is in the correct position. Ive moved the kick stand up and down to make sure that wasn't the problem. I have power it just won't turn over when I hit the start button. Also it wont push start now either. I am not a mechanic and have no idea were to look now.



nvm I just push started it. but still i cant start it cold with out push starting or jumping it.

When you push the start button do you hear a click sound if not it could be starter selenoid. If you hear a click sound it could be the starter.

How do you know the battery is fine?

load test the battery at auto parts store, check any starter relays or circuit fuses, make sure the starter switch on the bar isn't fooked up.

lets take a step back, when you turn the key do your lights come on, fuel pump prime, any noise at all? If not battery or fuse. If so see above posts.

Everything is normal lights come on fuel injection primes. Just nothing when I hit the start button. No noise no nothing.

Dumb question, but, are you pulling in the clutch when you hit the start button? You have to on a Suzuki.

Then came a green horse. The name of the one who rode it was Death, and hell followed right behind.

Check/clean the connections on the starter and battery. Check/clean the starter fuse connections.

I had an issue on an old bike where there was enough of a connection to the battery to power the lights, but not enough of a connection to turn the starter - yet it would arc enough of a connection to run the bike if I push started it.

Yeah, check the connections with the starter relay. When you look at the battery, to the right, there is the solenoiod block that you can take off and there is a fuse in there as well, make sure the connections are clean.

Edit: Found the pic I was looking for on TLZ, this is what I'm talkin about
