Hey guys, bought a 2006 m109r a few months ago and it was great untill a few weeks ago it just shut off while i was riding it. Wouldn't start back up, when you tuen the ignition on the headlights, signals brake lights all work, and dash back lights work. Speedometer reads a constat 60ish km/h, and the tachometer stays about half way, fi light was on due to the exhaust servo failure, its no longer lit, and cant get the nutral light to come on either. Took it to a suzuki dealer and the mechanic is basically firing the parts cannon at it, tried a fuel pump, and the tip over switch, no change. Im thinking a bad wire somewhere maybe, but just wanting to see if anyone else has heart of this.

That kind of sounds like a bad ECU or a connection somewhere that is lost. A few things will make them shut down, but none that I can think of that would make the instruments act like that. Have they checked all the grounds on it?

Yeah i mean, as a heavy duty tech, i have called two ecu's in my lifetime, but super rare, so im leaning to the ground/power wire issue like your saying

It's not common for them to go bad on these either. I can recall maybe one for certain, and a couple that have been replaced when trouble shooting an issue. Bad grounds are much more common.

BTW, welcome to the forum. I hope you get it fixed.

Look at the frame rail under the left side of the tank.
There is a bridge connector there for a bunch of grounds.
It is a dead end connector and if I remember correctly it is yellow in color.
Have seen a few of these start to heat up and make bad connections, causing all sorts of issues.
Might not be your issue, but easy enough to check and rule out.

Great, glad they found it. There have been some switch failures, but I don't recall one that failed like that. Usually they just go dead and nothing works.

They are all over ebay, both new and used. Some even come with the gas cap so the key still works both. Of course you know you'll still need your original key for the seat lock and steering head lock and helmet lock unless you can find those too.

Do you care if the switch has a different key than the rest of the bike? Here's all the items used from a 2006, and it shows the bike it came from and a good closeup of the connector.

Or if you want new, here's the listing with part numbers for an 06. They sell a lock set or just the switch. Once you get the part number you can probably find it cheaper on one of the other parts sites.
