Question about 1998 Suzuki GSX-R 750 W

1 Answer

Bike shut off when riding.

Riding my 1998 gsxr 750 when it felt like my bike was running a little crapy. i looked down at my gages and they were all over the place. I was riding at a constistant speed and the rpm and speedometer are going up and down, up and down. then the bike lost all power so i was just coasting then it came back on for a sec then off again. i had a friend jump start me let it charge for a few min then took off to get home. i was only about 1 to 1 1/2 miles away from my house and the bike died again in my driveway.

thanks for any help you can give.

Thanks
Allen

Hi and welcome to FixYa,

Your description indicates an electrical malfunction. Offhand, the jump start and charging is significant. This points to the bike's battery not charging. Suspects would be:

  • voltage regulator (most likely);
  • connectors to voltage regulator (likely). Check/clean corrosion/burnt marks;
  • stator and/or the 3 wires coming from it (least likely).
Good luck and thank you for using FixYa.

Around 2000 was the first year for fuel injection for the GSXR 750. It really isn't a 'choke' in the true sense of the word. It's a device that causes a high idle similar to an 'enrichener circuit' to warm up the bike engine. There should be no damage to the engine by leaving it on for a short ride so I'm thinking there was an unlerlying issue with the bike that the previous owner left undisclosed.

Around 2003 that device was abandoned due to the advancement of technology in fuel injection and was no longer needed.

After typing this response I just noticed the original post date was in 2012 and I'm sure the bike has been either repaired, sold or crashed by now but maybe this answer will be helpful to someone else.....

03 Suzuki GSXR 750 keeps shutting off while I am riding?? HELP!


Seems you are running entirely off your battery.
Indications are a suspect lighting or source coil is shorting. Resistance test will show discrepancies. Data is available on-line, search technical/electrical manuals from Clymer or Haynes. An auto shop sells cheap multi-meters than you can use. It is a stationary test and will identify individual component problems. As rectifier/regulator, cdi box and wiring/switches/connections all have an effect. These test are outlined within these publications. Cheers (and don't get caught)

Gsxr power problem


It lugs around and for me at about 6k it felt like a powerband and my bike kicked me and took off like a bat out of hell (I love that analogy). Anyways it was my plugs. How many miles are on the bike? My bike only has 5k miles and the plugs were pretty fouled. Runs like a top now. It stated being sluggish down low, a week later it was worse and would almost stall on me. I changed the plugs the day it stalled on me and no more problems. Best $18 I ever spent on a bike, sadly it was to just get it to run right. Best of luck!
