Hi, Sarah before testing any electrical component in the Starting Circuit it is "IMPERATIVE" that you have a fully charged battery of 12.5 volts or more and be able to pass a proper "LOAD" test if necessary, you may have a preliminary reading of 12.5 volts or more but little or zero amperage, the battery is faulty and must be replaced. AGM type batteries fall into this scenario more so than lead-acid batteries.
1. Ignition Switch not in the "ON" position.
2. Engine Run Switch in the "OFF" position.
3. Engine Run Switch is "FAULTY" or corroded.
4. Check the battery terminals for damage or corrosion check the battery cables at "BOTH" ends for loose, corroded, or broken connectors, "INSIDE" and outside the cable harness, perform connector wiggle test and check cables with an ohmmeter.
5. Bank angle sensor needs a reset or is faulty.
6. FOB battery low or dead.
7. Faulty ignition switch.
8. Faulty starter button.
9. Faulty kickstand, clutch, neutral safety switch.
10. Security alarm needs a reset.
11. Starter relay, solenoid, starter motor or circuit wiring faulty.
12. Starter armature or field coils have failed.
13. Main fuse or circuit breaker may be blown or faulty.
14. Faulty ignition relay.
15. The electric starter is working but starter clutch has failed.
16. Check for engine trouble codes.

You either have a broken cable or it is severly out of adjustment.

Assuming battery is fully charged use multi meter starting from battery keeping connection on live probe a crosse to earth at battery first to get reading then check to chassis/ frame and see if there is a difference in voltage than what you had across the battery terminals, If there is a difference of even half volt you have a poor connection

G'day.
Well I was just going to log off & do some work & I saw your question & had to answer.
I HATE IT when people take advantage of female bike owners/customers.
It sounds like you could use all (or ANY) help you can get.
So I want to answer your questions as accuratly as I can get.
Should you now pay for another regulator-I should think not.-the shop should sort this out for you-If they fitted a regulator WITHOUT testing the stator(which they should have to find out what caused the regulator to go)-& then burn out the good NEW regulator because of the stator-& then now want to charge YOU for the second regulator-NO WAY.

I don't know what else to say!
Heres a link to the part you need & fitting a regulator is usually pritty easy -un-bolt it- dis-connect it- reconect new one & bolt in place.Heres the link with the part & price.It seems that there are two types of regulator.
One is $184.79 & the other $213.31(US)
http://www.mrcycles.com/fiche_section_detail.asp?section=97287&category=Motorcycles&make=SUZUKI&year=1999&fveh=2175
I hope this answers your Questions & I do think that the shop should have just sorted this.You have to worry what will hapen if they fit the new regulator & if it still dosn't fix it!!!! : (
Let me know if I can help in any other way
Kindest of regards Andrew Porrelli

Do you have the fairing on your bike? if so you have to remove the harness clips from behind the forks then pop off the rubber gasket around the bulb, then release the metal clips then pull the backing of the bulbs out, dont handle the new bulbs by the glass or they will blow from the un even heating of the natural oils in your fingers. If you have the front light pod with no fairing then remove the pod from the bracket and the bulb should remove from the back! hope this helsp!

You need to replace the speedometer cable. The years of turning inside the protective cable have worn it out. Disconnect both ends and the piece(s) supporting the cable and replace it. Simple and relatively quick too. Happy Riding.

There is normally a combination tyre lever and suspension adjustment lever contained under the seat.

I posted this for a similar problem, maybe it can help. Are you sure it's getting gas to the carbs? Some people don't realize the 99-02 SV650 has a vacuum-actuated fuel pump, and sometimes it can get stuck. Mine has had this problem, and it took me a while to determine it was the problem. I would guess it only happens after the bike has been sitting a while (ours unfortunately sat for a year or so without being run).

Best way to check it is to lift the tank (it's bolted to the frame on the right side of the engine just under the tank). Unplug the line toward the front of the motorcycle from the fuel pump, and connect some spare fuel hose to it running to a can next to the bike (don't want to get gas everywhere!). With everything else still connected, crank the bike for a short period to see if any fuel comes out (shouldn't take long). If not, then move backward and ensure fuel will flow from the vacuum-petcock when the bike is cranked. If that does work, your fuel pump needs some work. I was able to take mine apart and unstick it.

Have you checked your battery voltage at the starter while the problem is happening? That will tell you if it is a wiring problem or a starter problem. If the voltage is low sometimes (and you know your battery is good and securely connected) then you have a wiring problem, broken or shorting somewhere. If the voltage is steady while the problem happens your starter could be failing.

If you have recently performed some maintenance on the motorcycle, the timing could be off or your throttle bodies may not be all the way back into their rubber boots. Either of those things should also cause poor running and backfiring.

Common problem is broken alternator drive, remove it from rear of moter and it will look likew broken rubber, about eight quid to fix,if ok then voltage regulator is also common suzuki problem and cheaper to fit aftermarket one which dont burn out!

Suzuki SV 650... | Answered on Jul 02, 2013 | 58 views


You need 3 things for an engine to run; spark, fuel and compression. How is the compression? Is the spark plug new? If the plug is old, it could give a nice spark when you check it but have no spark under compression. Make sure the fuel you're using is fresh. If you give it a small shot of starting fluid and it fires up, your fuel delivery is suspect. In that case, you will need to remove the carb an THOROUGHLY clean it paying close attention to jets and passages. I always give people this warning: when cleaning jets and passages, NEVER use steel instruments. Use wood, copper wire or other materials that are softer than the material you're working on or you run the risk of ruining jets or even the entire carburetor.
