what is this button?

Recommended Posts

there is a random black rubber button on the front fairings left hand side (pretty much by my knee) and i have no idea what it does. if i press it the starter relay starts clicking wildly. i should point out that iv never had the engine running as i have a few other things needing fixed before i start on that hence my confusion. its also not mentioned in the owners manual. any ideas?

i did a bit more digging and found that the starter relay has been hardwired to the battery through that button, fuck only knows why though as the bike comes with a key. would doing this bypass the safety switches as apparently these bike are notorious for electric problems. other than that i cant see any other reason for doing it :S

      So I went through the top end and then put everything back together and did break in and then probably 3-4 rides. Now my start button doesnt work but i can jump the solenoid and it starts right up. I looked for bad connects and didnt see any. I then replaced the coil and got nothing. So before i blow more money on something i dont know if it will work, i would like your guys opinion on what it would be. Thanks. Oh and it is a suzuki 160 '91

      Ok..I have the key for main ignition..for some reason, my push button isn't working..I have replaced starter solenoid, start circuit relay, new battery..when I turn the key on, I have 12 volts on the right side of my solenoid, not getting any voltage from the small blue/white stripe wire on the bottom of relay..assuming may be problem with one of the safeties..I can pull start everytime, I can jump solenoid with screwdriver, wrench, etc, and it starts everytime..so I just want to run a new aftermarket push button switch..my question is exactly how to do it..would I just run one wire the the small red/white wire on the bottom of solenoid, and run the other wire(from push button) to the small blue/white wire on bottom of solenoid?..I plan on using 14 guage wire, and I ordered a momentary , waterproof, push button..I plan on just drilling a hole between the key switch and reverse knob and installing it there..would like my e start working before winter hits

      Hi all, new to this forum so thanks in advance for the help.

      I have recently brought a 2013 power steering fuel injected foreman 500.

      It has a crack in the front casing and was running rough. I have since replaced the front engine casing and this has made no difference to the engine performance.

      It starts and idles but bogs down and starts to die once throttle is applied.

      It maybe be but it also sounds very load.

      I have uploaded a video link of it.

      I have a been given an old suzuki ltf4wd. It goes, but I think it has a problem. When I hit the starter button, the starter turns quite well for about 10 seconds then it bogs down a bit, and then the motor starts to turn over. Is that normal? I am used to engine turning every time the starter is engaged.
