Question about 1982 Suzuki GS 650 GT
A friend of mine has one of these, and has recently had the problem of when it´s cold the bike won´t start. It was only cold for about four days, but when he tried to start it again, he had to get a jump start. I´m a MMI graduate, but I specialize in H-D, and was wondering just how different Suzi´s are. Do I look in the usual places; like regulator/rectifier, starter, battery(duh), but you get the picture. Any info is appreciated. He doesn´t have the service manual, just the owner´s manual, how far will that get me in understanding his bike? I know the H-D owner´s manuals are full of the duh stuff, y´all get any better info?
The beast hates to be cold, try using oxy guard on all terminals. Recommend you keep the gas clean and run the bike, it likes to run.

I have the same bike. They do not like the cold. My bike will fire up every time if I let the fuel system "prime" for about ten minutes before I attempt to start the bike. Just switch the fuel "petcock" to prime, after bike is running turn back to on position.
