#1 Unread post by Hagger »

I have a 98 suzuki intruder 800. Unfortunately there is something wrong with my kill switch I need to bang on it to start does anyone have a link I can use to buy a new one. I do not want to get stuck with her leaving me stranded. I checked a bunch of sites and salvage yards and I can't find anything I am a new rider so there might be somthing universal I could use please help me get her back to normal I'd appreciate it so much. Thanks riders !

Hello there, have you tried chasing the wires, from the kill switch, to make sure they're still plugged into the rest of the bike? Do you have a service manual?
People say I'm stupid and apathetic. I don't know what that means, and I don't care.

I have not I don't have much bike experience but I wouldn't think a wire would be disconnected if it fires up when I play around with the switch and hit on it a bit .

Check with Suzuki if this is the correct part number, then compare prices...

It would be nice if the original poster updated this topic... I'd like to know if he got it fixed...
