Hey I have a 2006 Suzuki c50. Was out riding it the other day switched it off went to crank it back up and all the lights come on gas primes but when I hit the start button nothing. Yes I checked the kill switch lol checked the clutch safety as well as the kick stand switch all good. I did notice a high pitch whine coming from somewhere u set the gas tank area. I’m out of ideas guys help a girl out thanks

So if you've checked the safety switches, have you looked at fuses? If those look good, then i'd start looking at voltage regulator, stator, etc. I've not faced a problem like this, I'm only offering what I would do. Hope that helps.

yes Ihave checked all the fuses and the safety switches all good. Also was able to put a wire between the pins on the starter solenoid relay and it cranks right up runs fine. But for the life of me I can’t find why it won’t crank by the starter button

Well hopefully you can figure it out. Maybe a blown switch. Put a probe on each wire and see if youre getting juice to it. If not trace the lines back and find out where it disconnected? Just a thought. Good luck.

Just a thought or two from my end, was your bike in gear with the kickstand down? The gear position sensor will not let it start with the kickstand down and the bike in any gear but neutral. You can start it while it’s in gear but your kickstand must be up.
To expand on this, did you check the gear position sensor?

FWIW from reading these posts and others in the forum, my mental sniffer dog is looking at the starter button switch in the handle bar grip. Maybe corrosion/ accumulated dirt/ tiny bug. Might be worth a look as your bike appears to be around 14 yrs old, what's its garage environment history been like? Otherwise all other suggestions could be distinct possibilities.

If the problem persists consult your doctor . . . . . . . . in the hope that he/she moonlights as a Suzuki mechanic :LOL:

I had the same problem with my '08 C50. Turned out to be the wire that feeds the starter solenoid had chaffed thru and shorted out when i tried to start it. Hope this helps
