    the spark plug i removed is NGK C8HA but this type is not available i replace it with NGK C7HSA is this not suitable type?

    i appreciate the idea, is there any relation if the ignition system fails or malfunction to this type of problem?

    When i first start my bike it runs great. I ride it for a minute or 2 and it starts sputtering and losing power and eventually dies. I try to restart it and it won't. I was told it could be the coil pack but both are less than 1 yr old. If i let it cool down it will start again. Engine runs at normal temp even when acting up. Could be maby pinched fuel line, faulty coil packs? Please help!!!

Make sure your fuel tank vent is not plugged. To see if this is the problem, the next time the bike starts acting up, stop and open the fuel tank. If you hear a whoosh of air being sucked in you know your vent is plugged.

The C8HA is still available, it is NGK stock number 2168.
Good luck.

    You asked, "is there any relation if the ignition system fails or malfunction to this type of problem?"

    I think you are asking if your bike will act this way if your ignition system is malfunctioning. Yes, an ignition system malfunction could make the bike act this way. Could be spark plugs, ignition wires, coils, a short in the wiring somewhere, or any number of fuel related problems (fuel filter, plugged vent, air getting in where it is not supposed to, etc.) You are on the right track to check the simple things first.

When I start my bike "Enfield bullet 1976 model" I dont notice any problem but while moving it, it misfires and and even brings me to a halt.when i start again it wont start immediately.


The more older a vehicle gets the more attention it requires. Go to a reputed me hanic and clean up the carburettor airfilter and spark plugs as these three are the main components which help in the start stop and running of fhe bike also misfiring occurs mostly due to unclean carburettor newly fitted airfilter or if engine is running rich.

Bad misfire


run the fault codes as misfire can be from injectors , low fuel pressure and ignition problems
all temp gauges will show a rise on stopping an engine as there is still residual heat in the block and heads with no water circulation and cooling
the fire from the exhaust indicates an exhaust valve is not closing properly so a compression test would be in order to check for valve problems or hydraulic follower problems

Bike start but when it is normal working temp it cut out and struggle to start and don't pick up refs


Sounds like a carburator or fuel injector problem,,,If carburator the automatic choke's heat sensor is sticking...if injectors, the elec tronic pick-up for engine temp is faulty.

My truck is doing the exact same thing. I have been told it is the Intelligent Power Distribution Module or IPDM. The Nissan Dealership that is working on my truck says $400.00 parts and labor to fix.

Possible blown head gasket


My friend, a motorcycle is not a Toyota pick up. Don't even try to fix it at this point of your motorcycle career.

By nature, air cooled engines have a wider range of normal operating temperatures. Even if your bike has a radiator, it is still more motorcycle engine than automotive engine.

Since this is your first bike, I recommend two things for you. First, seek out a Motorcycle Safety Training Course, such as the BRC from the Motorcycle Safety Foundation. Yea yea, I know, you know how to ride and maybe you do. If you take the course, you may get some good tips and probably a discount on your insurance. Second, take your bike to the Suzuki dealer and have them go over the bike mechanically for you to make sure all is up to snuff on your 11 year old bike. Get a tune up and ask the mechanic about your bike. What to lube, where the oil goes etc. You should become very good friends with your new motorcycle - believe me when I say - it is a far cry from driving any other kind of vehicle.

Your investment of $ and time spent with the mechanic and your BRC instructor will pay dividends for many years to come. Good riding to you my friend. Enjoy your new motorcycle and ride safe.

Thanks for your interest in FixYa.com

Truck runs but cuts off after driving but will start again after sit up for a while


hi, if the truck starts and runs fine from cold but then starts playing up when it reaches normal running temp then has trouble starting untill it has cooled down if this is the case then i would say that your oxgen sensor(or lambda sensor for its proper name) needs replacing.
The reason it points towards this is that this sensor dont start working untill the engine is more or less up to temp so if this is when you start getting problems then this is what i would get changed first.

Let me know how you get on or if you need further assistance.

yes you should start it at least once weekly to maintain battery and keep engine lubricated, also it keeps fuel flowing through the bike. but dont just start up then switch off, make sure you get it up to normal operating temprature, this keeps moisture out of the engine oil.
