Instructions

    • 1 Disassemble your engine down to where you will have access to the valve spring. You will need to remove the cylinder head cover, the rocker arms and the push rods. You will also need to remove the spark plugs.
    • 2 How do you fix stuck valves on a 86 Suzuki gs450l - pixel.gif Next turn on your air compressor and regulate the air 60-90 psi, turn the crankshaft until the cylinder you are replacing valve seals on is on top dead center. Screw the compression gauge hose into the spark plug hole, attach the air compressor hose, your cylinder is now pressurized.
      The valves will stay in the closed position as long as the air pressure is holding it up.
    • 3 pixel.gif Using the valve spring tool, compress the valve spring and remove the valve keepers with a magnet. These may be stuck to the valve spring retainer and a little bump with the palm of your hand or a small hammer will jar it loose. Pack towels around the area so you won't lose the keepers into the engine. Remove the spring.
    • 4 Remove the old valve seal with pliers or screwdrivers and replace with a new seal. Reverse procedure to reassemble engine, use the magnet when installing keepers and after removing valve spring compressor tap the top of the valve lightly with a hammer to seat the keepers.

SOURCE: Why would there be oil coming from the overflow

Hi Michael the problem with many older motorcycles is usually gas working its way from the fuel tank and dirty or worn carbs into the engine check your oil level and to see if it is overfull and smell it for fuel. Change the oil and refill to the proper level then you need to check your fuel system.
1. check to see if your fuel petcock is not flowing and the setting is on on or reserve. If it is still flowing then the vacuum diaphram needs replacing.
Position PRI is for when you run out of fuel and needed to prime refill the carbs to get the bike running then turn to reserve. hope i Explaned it clearly enough hope this helps.

If.it just cuts out the sidestand switch is faulty if it lunges the clutch is either badly adjusted or the clutch plates are stuck together.

Oil running through carbs


Hi, Kyle you have a lot going on here that needs professional attention plus it's an old bike you probably have contaminated carburetors that need a "Chemical Dip" as for excessive oil in the air box that could be from too much oil in the system for this situation I would call my local dealer or reputable shop's service/parts department and inquire about any possible quick fix, answers, or parts inquiry. If necessary, transport your bike to the dealer or shop and have a professional technician take it for a test drive, if it is in running condition, and give you a written estimate of repairs and answer any specific questions you may have about your problem.

1980 Suzuki Gs450L won't start. I stalled out pretty bad in 4th gear and it won't start back up after. Bike won't even crank over, just makes a clicking noise. Any ideas?


pull the plugs then crank motor you may find one cylinder full of gas and that will keep it from cranking, if it cranks without the plugs allow it to dry for a bit , make sure plugs are dry then install and hopefully GO!

Go back to the 130 main jet. Be sure to check that both carb slides lift at the same moment. Also check to see if one carb is "driving" the other due to the idle screws not being balanced. Check the compression in both cylinders. It should be within 10% of each other. It is not likely that the bike has jumped time.

The motor must be on TDC when checking valve clearance.
The motor must also be cold, not warm or hot.

IF you don't know where TDC is then pull off the cap so you can see the rotor/flywheel turning and it has marks on it. turn it until you see the T mark is lined up. check clearance.
If no clearance turn the motor one complete revolution until you see the T mark is lined up again, now check the clearance. if you get clearance on TDC this is the compression stroke. this is where you want the motor when checking/adjusting the valves clearance.

If you don't get clearance on either mark, then it could be a bad timing chain, stuck valve.
You'd have to pull the rocker cover off and inspect the timing chain.
To inspect for a stuck valve, watch the valves as you turn the motor over, and see if they are moving at all.(inspect that they are moving throught the cap you removed to check adjustment).

As for the alternator, you can ground it anywhere on the frame or motor, because the frame/motor is grounded to the battery.

clutch pushrod should just pull out as it should be a 2 piece clutch pushrod model, earlier models were 1 piece and you had to remove clutch cover and pressure plate to remove. hopefully the seal is ok.

Samurai backfire


It sounds more like a timing problem. If it backfires through the carb that means the intake valve is open when the spark plug fires. Same with the exaust but it the exhaust valve that is open.
