Re: How to fix your Ignition Switch
Harry, Nice work. I had my switch replaced, and the bike has either run right or died shortly after starting. I can cycle the key, and get it to run right. May take several trys though. I checked the wiring diagram, and it showed all wires common with key on. I checked mine, and the Orange/yellow was not common. I checked my other bike, and it was not common there either. I am convinced it is the switch. Both have light bars, both are 2005 C50 (one CA the other is other 49). I put the light bars on a relay and used a headlight wire, instead of the Auxiliary, to fire it, so the lights would go out during starting. Next time you have the tank off, would you mind ohming your switch out and tell me what you see? Do you have a light bar? I think Suzuki did not beef up the switch when they wen to Fuel Injection, and the light bar overloads the switch, melting the plastic, as you note. Thanks, Richard
I have a used switch and no key. I wanted to ohm it out also, can't get the barrell out. Is there a trick to it?
