Question about 2005 Suzuki Boulevard S50
I have ran the battery down twice on cold mornings. Choke on or off it wouldn't start. Will hotter plugs help? Do I need to shut off the fuel tap after riding? I want this bike for everyday riding. Any advise?
Hi .......... Cold mornings tend to be demanding on batteries, esp'ly if they're not a 100%. How many times does it turn over ?
I always recommend (if possible) switching off petrol just prior to stopping the engine, this ensures only a float bowl of petrol is available AND when you go to start it the amount of fuel (mixture) is limited ......... so in theory the chance of 'flooding' it is reduced. How old are the plugs ?
Give it a go and see how you get on.
