Will the E starter button fit on an S without having to re-wire

Recommended Posts

My happy button broke while I was out riding today. It had been raining all day and the single track trails I was on were pretty slick with wet leaves covering ruts, rocks and slippery roots. Any way I went slightly off the trail and nailed a tree pretty hard on the left side of the bars and had also dropped it on the right, that is when it stopped working. When I took the starter apart, the plastic piece inside where the wires are connected to broke in the corner where it is screwed down. I got the bike started again and rode back along the two-track to my friends truck.

My friend suggested getting the starter button from the E. My question is, would I be able to use a starter button from an E on my S with out having to do to much rewiring of the starter?

Thanks in advance.

Yes, I have an E starter button on my S after the exact same failure. It fits and works great. :thumbsup:Andrew

Hi OSITECH,

Will the connector for the E starter button plug directly into the connector for the S behind the headlight, or did you have to do some rewiring to make it work? Does the E starter button have a kill switch built into it like the starter for the S? If not, what did you use for the kill switch?

Thanks!

Rolled mine down a steep hill and broke the plastic inerds, is that a word? Since Suzuki wanted $70 for the whole assembly, I went to Radio Shack. Found a button for $2.25 just had to take a file to the opening to round it out. Works great except for my crappy solder job.

That would be correct. Believe it or not, this is the second one that has broken on me. Well, I guess smacking into trees probably doesn't help :cry: The first time I forked out the money for a new one, but I don't want to have too if there is a cheaper alternative that works just as well.

Took your advice and bought a button for $3.99. I rounded out the hole to make the button fit, but I made it a little too big. The button almost goes right through. Soldered it up and it works like a charm. :cry:
