Question about 1998 Suzuki GSX-R 600
Verifying the Spark
Remove the upper and side fairings, using a 4 mm Allen wrench to unscrew the fairing bolts. Unlock and remove the rider's seat, using the ignition key.
Pull the fuel lines off of the fuel valve under the left side of the fuel tank. Unscrew the pair of bolts from the base of the fuel tank, using a 10 mm socket. Pull the fuel tank to the rear of the motorcycle to remove it..
Pull the cables off of the two spark plugs on the right side of the motor. The spark plug cable furthest to the right is connected to the right ignition coil, while the second cable is connected to the left ignition coil. Unscrew the spark plugs from the motor, using a spark plug socket. Plug the ignition cables back onto the removed spark plugs.
Hold the spark plugs against the motor and start the motorcycle for a few seconds. Observe the gap between the electrode at the tip of both spark plugs for spark. Ideally, the spark should have a bright, blue appearance.
Replace the spark plugs with new DR8E spark plugs, if no spark is present. Repeat the test. Replace the corresponding ignition coil if there is still no spark present at the spark plugs' electrodes.
Proceed to Section 2 for further diagnosis, or reassemble the motorcycle following the reverse method of removal.
Testing the Windings
Remove the suspect ignition coil from the motorcycle's frame, using a 10 mm socket. Unplug the coil's cables from the remaining spark plug in the motor and from the spark plug removed in Section 1. Unplug the motorcycle's wiring harness connector from the back of the ignition coil. Remove the remaining ignition coil, if needed, using the same procedure.
Set your multimeter to read an R X 1 resistance range, using the meter's settings dial.
Measure the ignition coil's primary winding at the terminal that connects to the motorcycle's wiring harness, using your multimeter. Touch the meter's red probe to the coil's positive (+) terminal and the black probe to the coil's negative (-) terminal. Take note of the measurement on the meter's display. Replace the ignition coil if its primary winding has a resistance measurement less than 3 ohms or greater than 5 ohms.
Set your multimeter to read an R X 1,000 resistance range, using the meter's settings dial.
Measure the ignition coil's spark plug cables, using your multimeter. Touch the meter's probes to the metal connectors within the cable's end caps. Take note of the resistance measurement on the meter's display, indicated in ohms. Replace the ignition coil if the cables have a resistance measurement less than 25,000 ohms or greater than 45,000 ohms.
Reinstall the ignition coil if its primary winding and spark plug cables are within the specified resistance range, using the reverse method of removal. Replace the entire ignition coil if either the primary winding or the spark plug cables are within specification, as the ignition coil and its cables are a combined assembly.
Reassemble the motorcycle following the reverse method of removal. Connect the left ignition coil's cables to the pair of spark plugs in the middle of the motor's cylinder (#2 and #3), while the right coil's cable connect to the spark plugs on the sides of the cylinder (#1 and #4).

Hi, If there is excessive air in your system after reassembly of master cylinder, the lever will have a spongy feeling about it and possible inconsistency or will have travel, bleeding the hydraulic system is best carried out by two people, remove the reservoir lid, top up over half and replace lightly to keep out dust, get a old glass jar, and a clear pipe that pushes down into the top of the bleeder valve, which is on top of the caliper block, and sink pipes other end into a little brake fluid in the glass, ensure there is always sufficient brake fluid in the reservoir tank, top up later if needed, use open spanner for bleeder valve, unscrew the bleeder valve one half turn and squeeze the brake lever as far as it will go, but do not release it until the bleeder valve is tightened again, repeat this a few times until a no more air bubbles come from the plastic pipe. Also, ensure all other joints are secured in this brake system, When all the bubbles disappear, close the bleeder valve, remove the pipe and install the bleeder valve dust cap. Check the fluid level in the reservoir, after the bleeding operation has been complete. Reinstall the Diaphragm, and the cap. Do not use the brake fluid drained from system as it contains minute air bubbles. There was the question of the locking pads, after the air is removed from the calipers, and there is still a prob, I might have the answer

SOURCE: What kind of NGK spark
it takes a cr9ek im new to bikes and am a girl my name is crystal i love to work on cars but had to do digging for ansewers to my bike issues too!!!!!!!!!!!!!

To locate the spark plugs on your bike you will need to remove the tank or at least raise the front and prop it up, in front of the carbs there should be a rubber heat shield pull it up and the there will be 4 coils attached to the spark plugs the two outer plug are a little dificult to get to but with a little work you can do it.

Well first you have to determine is it fuel or spark loss.first remove one spark plug reinsert in plug boot,with insulated gloves or rubber handled plyers hold sparkplug conneted to wire against the head of bike.Ignition on kill switch in run position (disconnect all other plug wires in case it starts).hit starter and you should see a nice crisp blue spark.If nothing you have a ignition problem most likly a bad coil or cdi box.if you have spark repete on all other cyclenders to make sure all electrical circuts are working.also take note as you remove all spark plugs are the wet with gas,if there dry you have a fuel problem.
