Hi this is Kenny, who am I speaking to ?So reading your description you obviously have an intermittent situation, so I can run through some checks and see if we can catch it when its acting up, being you can cross the solenoid terminals and it turns over and starts leaves me to believe that its on the primary side of the starting circuit.Next question, do you have a multi-meter ?Thanks

yes i have a multi-meter' larry

Thanks Larry So it will not start, side stand up, clutch lever pulled in correct ? does it sometimes work or never, only way to start it is to short across the posts on the solenoid ?

So some of the Suzuki's have different requirements when starting, if this bike is in neutral does it require you to pull the clutch lever in to start it ?
