It started this morning, went 25 yards and sputtered out. After some thought, checked gas tank - out of gas! added gas, bike will start briefly, then dies. then won't start again until I try an hour or so later. Will start, but will die if I attempt to put in gear

I dont know where you can download a manuel but if you want a really good repair and maintenance book i highly recomend Hanes.
The standard manual that comes with the bike doesnt show you how to repair anything in detail. Order a Hanes book for your bike and it will help you more than the stock manual. Here is a link for you. Its worth every penny.

If you have an air compressor and air gun tip simply

insert the tip into the grip and apply air but

you need to remove the vibration dampeners first

My suzuki s83 2006 won't start. I replace the battery, and new gas and Clean the carbs. Gas is getting to the carbs. New spark plugs . It turns over but dosent run.

Hi, Matt and the usual suspects are:
1. Fuel tank empty.
2. Fuel supply valve/petcock turned off.
3. Fouled spark plugs.
4. Engine flooded as a result of overuse of the enricher.
5. Vacuum hose to the fuel supply valve/petcock disconnected, broken, cracked, or pinched.
6. Fuel valve/petcock or filter clogged.
7. Fuel line to carburetor or throttle body pinched or kinked.
8. Carburetor float stuck.
9. Fuel injectors clogged.
10. Severely discharged or damaged battery, you need 12.5 volts or better and be able to pass a load test if necessary.
11. Check battery terminals for damage or corrosion, check the battery cables at "BOTH" ends for loose, corroded, or broken connectors, "INSIDE" and outside the cable harness, perform connector wiggle test and check cables with an ohmmeter if necessary.
12. Loose or corroded wire connection at the coil, battery or plug between ignition sensor and module.
Spark plug cables in bad condition and shorting, cable connections loose, or connected to the wrong cylinders.
13. Ignition timing incorrect due to a faulty ignition coil, ignition module or sensors (MAP, CMP, CKP, O2, TPS, ETP, IAC,or BAS).
14. Faulty neutral, clutch lever, or kickstand safety switch.
15. Faulty fuel pump or fuse or relay.
16. Faulty CDI box if applicable.

I have a 2004 Suzuki LS650 that won't start. Battery says it's charged . Has new spark plug. Gas is good. When I go to start it it does not start, and then the battery is low again.

You say the gas is good? do you mean fresh in the tank? Try draining the card floatbowl using the 10 mm headed bolt on the very bottom of carb. If you smell a foul odor there is varnish buildup in the carb which will require a complete fuel system/ carb cleaning to fix.

I just bought the same bike. I had to choke it hard to even get it to start. Seemed as if it was running lean. It sputtered under acceleration and would die when I pushed the choke in. My first step I filled the tank the tank with 93 octane gas. This is a high compression motor. After gas swap my bike jumped out of it's skin. No more choking and very smooth through the power band and does not sputter no more. A totally different bike from then

Checked fuses all of them r good the bike will not start has new battery

Check the safety switches, specifically the neutral detect and clutch safety.
If the bike thinks it's in gear, or that the clutch isn't pulled in, it won't start!
Check the wiring to the starter relay.

2005 Suzuki boulevard c50t.......Fuel pump will not start when key is turned on....checked fuses and they are good . Is there another fuse for just the fuel pump somewhere?

i have same problem and tested all the way to the pump it turns out that it is the fuel pump regulator. the regulator is attached to the pump directly and it sticks. unfortunatly you can't replace just the regulator have to replace the whole pump which is in the tank
