Question about 2000 Suzuki LS 650 Savage

2 Answers

Bike will not start

I have a 2000 suzuki savage that ran fine until I let it sit for about two months in the cold. I have spark and fuel going to the carb. I sprayed starting fluid in carb from rear air intake side but the motorcycle still will not start.The starter turns but it will not start. Should I remove the carb and inspect and clean it. I did that about 8 months ago when I installed a larger main jet. please help

As you may or may not know fuel becomes stale over a period of time you will need to replace with fresh fuel also clean or replace plugs check fuel filters and yes clean that carb

I would take the carb off and clean the jets. I had a bike that if i didnt ad stabil to it, the gas would varnish in just about a month. It also depends on what kind of gas you put in there and if you fill the tank up so condensation doesnt get in there.

Sounds like vaporlock. Try insulating the fuel line, especially around hot engine parts.

Check compression of cylinders, all should be close the same. Swap spark plugs and check if problem cylinder moved. If bike sits for long periods of time then most likely it will be a plugged carburetor.

Fuel switch


The fuel switch has three positions:
The arrow on the handle points to the position selected.

ON = Normal operation setting. Fuel will not flow through the hose to the carb until the engine is on. Gas in the carb bowl is used to start the engine. The arrow is DOWN when in the on position.

PRI = Fuel flows through the hose to the carb at all times. This setting is used if the bike has been sitting around and the fuel level in the carb may be too low to start the engine. For safety use this setting only to fill the carb bowl with gas or for brief testing.

RES = If you run out of gas, this setting will provide extra gas so you can hopefully find more.
