Check binding of any cables or wiring in the aream around the steering neck.If the bike has a fork lock it could be broken in some way and trying to engage. If you feel certain that none of these are the case a problem with the steering neck bearings could be happening. This is a very dangerous concern and it will be best if a qualified person investigate and or repair it.

    Thanks Mike. It was a bent steering shaft which seller denied even though he was the only owner and evidence shows a repair was attempted.

Google for "[your scooter type] engine idle adjustment". It's probably running too fast.

I inherited a suzuki burgman 400 scooter(not sure of what year it is) from my father in law. We can't get it started. I turn the key on and there is power but I can't seem to find the right switch...


This may not help but here goes.

The button for starting bikes is usually on the right handlebar under the light switch. I had a Suzuki that wouldn't start unless you pulled the clutch in (Left handlebar, lever in front of grip). Make sure the red kill switch is on too (right handlebar).

Good luck

How do i reset the service spanner symbol on my aprilia 125 leonardo sport city scooter


Ok, disconnecting the battery does NOT reset the service light. To reset the service light (spanner symbol) on dashboard you must hold the mode button for about 5 seconds with ignition OFF then while still holding the mode button turn ignition on, continue holding the mode button for a futher 10 - 12 secs and then it should just disapear. This solution was brought to by RPMs. Mobile motorcycle service.
