Start button not working

I have a 2003 gsxr 1000 an the start button is playing up like its a contactor or something? I turn the key on an fuel pump an everything works as normal but the button is very temperamental! Especially after washing it! Any solutions?

As much as it sounds bad, try spraying wd-40 in the start button with everything off, let it sit out in the sun for a few hours to let it soak in to the metal contacts under the switch and to dry out the wd-40. Then after say 4-5 hours, go out there and press the button a good few number of times say 100 pressing fast and hard a couple of times, that way if rust is on the contacts the wd should free some of the rust up and knock it loose off the contact.

Next time you go to wash bike put a plastic bag over the button to keep out the water and just wash around the area with a damp rag rather than soaking the whole area, should help to keep the button dry.

Worse case scenario is you can get a new/used button on ebay, replace and then start using a plastic bag to keep dry. those things are rough when the switches get wet on a bike.

Hope this helps.

Most of the wiring on a bike is crammed into small spaces anyway and thats bad already..sounds like a new switch is needed.. and relocating it may be a requirement..I did my honda..

FI stands for Fuel Injection. The fuel system sensors have detected a problem. It could be anything > a dirty air filter FI stands for Fuel Injection. The fuel system sensors have detected a problem. It could be anything > a dirty air filter restricting airflow, a plugged injector, an error in fuel mapping, any number of things. Serious problems can trigger the computer to prevent the engine from starting until the problem is fixed. You will need to take the bike to a dealer to have them plug in a code reader. The code reader will tell you exactly what problem has been detected. There is also a chance a sensor has gone bad and is giving a false signal. Keep that in mind. Now determine if you want to do the fix or have the dealer do it. Please rate my answer.

My 04 gsxr 1000 won't start! I rode it on Thursday no problems at all went to ride it Friday now it won't start turn the key and everything works lights horn etc. The fuel pump comes on and everything but...


I would check the starter relay, and any fuses associated with it, also does this model have to have the clutch in or brake on to start? If so check the switches there as well because you may have one switch that is stuck
