Electrical Problem

Discussion in 'Technical and Troubleshooting Torque' started by rod, Apr 3, 2009.

  1. Tried to start my bike this morning but no go. Turn the key and tail light comes on and stays on and consol lights up briefly but no headlight or starter motor.

    Any sugestions, bike is 08 Sukuki vl800(C50).

  2. Whats the battery voltage? Does the starter solenoid 'click' when you try and start,or is it all dead? Does the taillight stay on or does it die with the console lights? Have you tried jump starting it?
  3. Battery is ok, apparently the ignition switch is stuffed, new one coming.
