Angry No Electrical Power?? Green connector issue!

Would anyone who has had 2003 SV1000,"S" Ignition cut out problems please post them up to this thread. It would be greatly appreciated as this is believed to be the initial cause of my accident. Thanks in advance.

What do you mean by having the ignition cut out? I've had mine stall on me, but only when I'm at idle speed with the clutch pulled and and blipping the throttle.

I had to have a complete new ignition fitted to my bike as it was shagged! Somtimes the bike woud start, other's it would not, very frustrating. Still it was done under warranty.

When you first sterted having this problem I posted that I had also had a similar issue, however, my problem was a total loss of electrical power, this means no lights, no ignition, no gauges, like if someone had turned off the ignition switch. In fact that is what the dealer found, a conection on the wire harness that goes to the ignition switch, I think it was a faulty connection in a plug in this harness that caused my problem. If I can help you with this and you need more information I can look for the invoice; if I can find it, and see what the technician wrote in as a description for the problem. By the way I hope you are doing better, I saw the picture you posted and all I can say is OOUUCCHH!!!!!!

This is what im talking about....total elec. failure...no lights no dash no ignition...mine is an intermitant problem...sometimes for a split second sometimes for 5-10 seconds....it was a split second cut out that unsettled my front end mid corner full lean that caused my off. I just need to know how many other bikes have had ignition problems.

Yep that's what happened to me while making a right hand turn one afternoon on my way home from work, thing is I never got any electricals back, it stayed in failed mode until the dealer found the problem. That was about six month ago, it's been fine after that.

I've had my ignition replaced under warranty but I wouldn't classify it as cutting out; it failed once and that was that. I needed a new one.

No ignition cutout but an idea maybe! Maybe it was the tip over switch kicking in that made it die.Suzuki's are famous for that on slower hard corners!

I posted a thread regarding the Suz tip over switch some time ago.

IF this is the cause of cut outs we need to know. What did the dealers "fix" on SV'S with cut out issues? There has to be a root cause, we don't need anymore crashes due to engine shut downs mid-corner.

Thanks for bringing this to the fore front Grantmeyer. Hope your feeling better.

When my time has come, I prefer to be in the Saddle rather than the Recliner.

I had an intermitant starting problem with low miles: no electricity. It turns out that even though the battery terminals were tight and visually looked fine, the cause was corrosion on the negative terminal. I cleaned the connections and lubed with petroleum jelly and the problem has never reoccurred in 4500 miles.

Best wishes,
Dave

Exclamation Got to the bottom of it!!!!!!!!

Finally got to the bottom of this problem..the connector between the ignition switch and the wiring harness was shorting out causing the ignition cut out. This is in the main pin that feeds the ignition relay and it did not pop the 30A main fuse. See atached pic's Bike going to dealers for a new wiring harness / new ignition switch plus full electrical check up.

Read your crash post, read your ignition post... Hmm, front slide, then you turn the bars a certain way to catch it, which another guy said caused his ignition to cut out, but ended up possibly making you highside...

I'm DEFINITELY not one of these sue happy people, but it occurs to me that if Suzuki doesn't take care of you, you've probably been screwed. You're probably owed a new bike.

Also it would be nice to know if this was fixed on the later bikes.

(I keep having visions of the 1st corner at my track, and having something like this happen when we're all crowded in there... Still haven't bought an SV1000 to race, but it's not looking so good...)

One other member had the same problem read Twists post in this thread My guess is heat build up because of the location of the connector.
