Question about 1997 Suzuki GSX-R 750 V
Ok so iv read every thread on the kickstand, killswitch, and anything else i can look up to see why my bike wont run. i spliced the kickstand, re solderd the killswitch... bought a new battery and have either back probed or tested every connector for voltage and resistance?!? the stator is fine but it either wont cut on or wen it does its like it shorts out and just clicks. i can jump it and it runs fine but when then cables come off it runs untill the battery loses all charge and the tach and dash go out then the motor... idk wth could be rong iv tryd everything and i leave for the marines in a week. any help or suggestions would be awsum b/c im at a loss and cant even look at it anymore. lol. thanks guys have a good one
Based on what your saying it sounds like a charging issue, based on it having a good battery and being able to be jumped-started then it slowly dying out. Did you check the volts/amps when the bike is running? It could be the stator is going bad and works only part of the time/or not enough, hence the bike dying out after discharging the battery. From what I've heard, the stators on the bikes don't really put out a huge charge to begin with. I'd also check the voltage regulator(rectifier). What do you mean by I spliced the kickstand, resoldered the killswitch?(racebike?) That may be the culprit if they're shorting out on metal. Also if this problem started after doing those modifications, I'd definately first start looking for wire problems there. I've never had a problem like this on my bike and can't see it in person so I'm just guessing, but hopefully someone else will add with some more advice or have/had a similar issue....
