I have a 2010 sv650 which has done 25000 commuting miles which has decided to stop working!
I initially released something was wrong when I hopped on it after work and it wouldnt start. After some cursing turning it off and on again (by key and killswitch) it burst into life.
The problem then went away.... then xmas eve i had the same problem when I went to leave for work yet got it started after some jiggery pokery. When I stopped for fuel midway on my journey it would not start no matter what I did. After some cursing and shaking it about while pressing the ignition switch it burst into life!
I then took the bike home after work and had a look at the starter motor connectors and battery conectors cleaning them up and fitting them back tightly. When I started the bike first time it burst into life. Turned it of and on again a few times and was happy it was working.
A few days later I got back onto the bike and it wouldnt start no mater what I did.
Placing the key into the ignition and turning it on: front lights on, display on and fuel pump audibly turns on.
Thumbing the on switch with clutch engaged neutral light on killswitch off front brake on side stand up: lights dim and no sound of the bike even attempting to turn over.
Any ideas what it could be? Read other places that fuses go etc yet why would it only work if I shook it initially then not at all?
