Default 2006 S50 Boulevard Starting Problems

I have a 2006 Suzuki s50. Having trouble starting it. When I turn the key I get absolutely nothing.. the lights don't come on and it doesn't start. However if I bounce up and down on the seat a couple of times, and then turn the key on ,it starts and the lights come on immediately. I have it hooked up to a trickle charger which indicates the battery is fully charged. I don't understand what's going on.. any ideas???

You have a loose connection on one of your wires. Unfortunately, I can't tell exactly just which one from here......

Start at the Battery - ensure the terminals are clean, and the connections tight (but not "mash the crap outta the lead-terminals" tight). Then I'd follow the Negative (- or Black) cable to the frame/engine, ensure THAT's clean and tight.

Then, go to the Positive (+) wire, and follow it. Ensure the Main Fuse is seated properly, and there's no corrosion.

I Strongly suggest you locate and purchase a Factory or Clymer-brand service manual for this bike - they're worth many-times-over their price, when you need them.

Good Luck
