From what I can see after google-fu it looks like an ignition error code.

No doubt someone far more knowledgeable will be along soon.

Have a nosey here

c42 relates to the ignition switch signal/anti theft 'device'. Have you checked the connections to the ignition switch? There are three connectors under the airbox behind the headstock (just behind the rad) that may get corroded or damaged.

You havent done any wiring mods have you? or maybe disturbed a connector somewhere?

+1. Suzuki Service manual section 8-23 should sort you out.

I reckon if you're getting power when you turn the ignition on, then you're looking at a coil/HT fault.

thanks for the replies. I will have alook tomorrow when im back from lectures.

I havent done any mods to the wiring, there is an alarm fitted from new, so I dont think that could be it.

If the alarm is the manufacturer approved one, that connects to the loom at a 4 pin connector behind the headstock as per flymo's post.

EDIT: To get at those connectors, you're looking at taking the airbox off completely, then employing a 4 year old as there's still not a lot of space.

The HT lead is the 'fat' lead or high tension lead that runs from the coil to the plug cap. It carries mucho voltage

Its probably one of those connectors behind the rad, they corrode up pretty fast.

The lead coming from the spark plug back to the engine (in a round about way), is the HT lead. Attached to that, is the coil.

I've just put the PDF version of the Suzuki Electrical manual on my server for you. Take a look at Section 8-23 (page 24 onwards).

To save myself any copyright issues, I'll PM the link to the document now...
