hey everyone, I came across this site whilst doing some research on my viper helmet yesterday. Well alot has happened since then. I took my suzuki vl 125 out for the firs time to day (christmas day). I was the first time i had been on a bike and I thought, whilst everyone else will be at home pigging out, the roads will be clear. It was abit wet and cold and I was enjoying lonely country lanes. I stopped for a fag. When I got back on, there was no response from the starter. I checked and rechecked that I was not employing any cut outs accidentally.....still nothing. I tried a bump start but I must have been doing something wrong because the engine gave a very unconvincing bubbling noise and died. The rain was coming in and I had about an hour of light left and did not know exactly where I was. I pushed my bike to a nearby farmhouse and asked if they could help me jump start the battery a running car engine. On the parking ignition position the light comes on but on full ignition position not even the trip meter comes on. The starter motor doesn't respond. I was just about to leave the bike there and have it towed tomorrow when the lovely farmer man employed his sons to heave my bike on the back of a van and he took me back home. After warming up by the fire I am now stuck on what is wrong. What an introduction to biking ehhhh

welcome as said if your fuses and earths are ok, i would reckon if you have a good battery it and it won,t turn over after a short break from riding your looking at a dodgy starter or cut out switch.
you will have a cutout on the clutch,side stand and neutral gear position.
check the connections and make sure the pins in the switches are not stuck in all the time.all the best .
