I think the tip-over switch shuts off the fuel, but there's lots of other things that can stop the ignition: neutral indicator, clutch lever, emergency switch, kickstand switch, ignition switch....

My girlie had a similar problem. Check the switch on the clutch lever.

Sharons clutch lever must've bent a really small amount, not enough to be visible, and not enough for the clutch to stop working, but enough that the starter switch wouldn't make contact.

(in case this isn't how they work in the States, certain models of Suzukis require that you pull the clutch in to start them)

Yeah but I think the ignition would still come on even with a bad clutch sensor.. may not start but the fuel pump should at least come on...

Is your FI display on your tachometer? When I went down for the first time the tip over sensor came on. The bike wouldn't start for 35 minutes. Check for the FI display. If it doesn't go off just take it to a suzuki dealer, they'll fix it.

Does anything work when you turn the key headlights, horn, signals, anything? And when you say broken wire do you mean loose or did you check them with a meter?

I would get a volt meter and check your harnesses. Staring with the ignition. The ignition switch might have took a crap.

Hey buddy check your battery. It sounds to me like your bike isn't getting any voltage whatsoever. What exactly happened when you dumped your bike?

Well chit man if your front end took that much of a beating I'm willing to bet there are a few wires near the ignition that are mashed or mangled. I would honestly take it to the suzuki dealer that you bought it from. Be a straight shooter with them, they may have seen the problem before. Who knows. Don't act retarded about it though, they are automatically going to assume you're an idiot b/c you laid your **** down. Just find a cool mechanic and ask him if he'll check your **** for a 30 pack. That usually works for me.

That is the main fuse for the starter I believe... I use to have one on the 9R.. I think that is what it was for...
