JUST A SHOT IN THE DARK ON THIS.

TRY DISCONECTING THE POSITIVE POWER CABLE ON YOUR BATTERY,AND WAIT TEN OR TWENTY MIN.THEN PUT THE POSITTIVE BACK ON IT.

SEE IF THAT WILL RESET IT.

HOPE THIS HELPS

Battery draining on suzuki S83 boulevard - can ride it for a couple of hours then it just cuts out


Sounds like you need to check the generator and charging circuit.

The bike will start and run on the battery alone until it is drained.

Once a bike has been started the battery power is taken over by the generators power this also replenishes the power lost in the battery when the bike is initially started. If the generator does not generate power the bike will continue to us the power from the battery until it is exhausted and will therefore stop.
A simple test is to turn the bike ignition on and turn the headlamp on (check the brightness of the lamp) Start the bike and re check the brightness of the head lamp, it should be a little brighter if the generator is working. Another test is carried out with the use of a voltage tester (multi meter). Set on dc volts test the batteries voltage eg 12vdc, start the bike and re test the voltage should be around 13 - 14v dc if the charging circuit is working

Sportster 2001 883 has spark but will not start


Hi Anonymous, and the usual suspects are:
1. Fuel tank empty
2. Fuel supply valve turned off.
3. Fouled spark plugs.
4. Engine flooded with gasoline as a result of over use of enrichner.
5. Fuel valve or filter clogged.
6. Vacuum hose to automatic fuel supply valve disconnected, leaking, or pinched.
7. Discharged battery, loose or broken battery connections.
8. Loose wire connection at coil, battery or plug between ignition sensor and module.
9. Spark plug cables in bad condition and shorting, spark plug cable connections loose,
or cables connected to wrong cylinders.
10. Ignition timing incorrect due to faulty ignition coil, ignition module, or sensors " Manifold Absolute Pressure" "Camshaft Position Sensor" "Crank Position Sensor" "Brake Apply Sensor
11. Engine lubricant to heavy ( winter operation )
12. Sticking or damaged valves or push rod wrong length.
13. Primary cam sproket spline sheared or missing spacer.

I have a 1980 Suzuki GS 1100. The starter relay clicks but thats it. It would start. I replace it with a new one and still the same thing. What could it be? Thanks


If you hear the starter relay click, but not turn over the motor that's a classic low/dead battery situation. There is only enough power left for the battery to click the starter but is not powerful enough to actually turn the engine over.

three ways you can deal with this issue.
First replace the battery.
Second give the battery a charge using either a battery charger or the more common battery trickle charger (battery tenderizer) which most motorcycle owners use to keep their bikes battery charged over long periods of non use like the winter. If you have a tenderizer just hook it up to the battery, plug it into the wall and let it trickle charge for about 12-16 hours or so and then try again.

If the starter is actually turning over but you arent gettting the engine to fire then it has to be one of the only two remaining variables that we need for combustion, spark and fuel. check you spark plugs for excessive wear, carbon buildup or damage, and then check the spacing or just replace them. if you see a spark when you fire the starter than its not a plug issue.

Finally fuel. Is there gas in the tank? can you hear the fuel pump click on once you turn the key to on? is the line creased or corroded, if you unplug the line do you see fuel being pumped in?

those are your three possibilities.

Another easy thing to try to check if it is a batteyr issue and you don't have a charger is to try push starting the bike

  1. First, make sure that your bike isn't starting just because you are out of gas. If you're out of gas, this will not work.
  2. Make sure the key is in the on position
  3. Put the bike in 2nd gear
  4. Hold the clutch in and begin pushing, preferably downhill, but it will work elsewhere as well.
  5. Once you've gathered enough momentum, apply a minimal amount of throttle (not too much or the bike will get away from you) and hop on the bike just as you release the clutch.
  6. Rev the engine a bit so your bike doesn't conk out.
  7. Ride away.

As this point you can't get the bike to turn over is this correct? If the engine is turning over but won't start then yes the gas is most likely the problem. Gas after sitting for even a month can evaporate from the fuel system and it leave a fouls smelling deposit behind that clogs up everything. It stinks and it's a mess to clean out. To prevent this from happening use a product that is called "Fuel Stabilizer" in the last few tanks of gas before you put the bike away for the winter or a dormant period. If the motorcycle is in a hot climate or heated garage this foul smelling gas can happen within a few weeks.

Have been having issues starting bike. Engine seems to be flooding for no apparent reason. e.g., this has happened multiple times.Started it today ( idling little low round 0.5k revs), let it run for 5...


A flooding problem is usually due to a problem with the foat and the needle/seat in the carburettor. This could be sticking open and allowing the engine to flood. Also, alowing an air cooled engine to run stationary for extended periods builds up considerable localised heat and this could be causing fuel to percolate and flood the engine. Back fire could be coming from a sticking valve - from the heat and a carbon build-up?

But first check the floats and needle and seats in the carb an shut off the fuel tap after shutting down the macnine.

Cranks but wont turn over


Did you drain the gas out before you stored it.

If its carb model, then the carbs probablt need taken off and cleaned.

If it fuel injected, the screens are probably plugged up....dump the gas and try fresh gas

Engine will not turn over, clicking sound


Three things cause your problem:

1. Dirty terminals

2. Battery flat or not holding charge (Cactus)

3. Starter motor has had it and all it can do is click the solenoid in and out.

Solution: Take it to an auto-electrician and he will diagnose your problem in a few seconds and rarely charges for this service. OR, you could attempt to jump start it from another bike, if it is the battery, it will turn over.

It may be your "check engine" light or charging system light. You didn't go into any great detail, so I'm not sure. Check the charging system is by hookin up a volt meter set to 20v across the battery + and - terminals. Should read 12.5 or higher without the bike running. Start the bike and you should get 14.3. This is a BASIC test and even if the bike passes you can STILL have charging problems. The check engine light will have to be diagnosed by a dealer unless you or a friend has a scanner to pull the trouble codes from the computer.

Should i start it and let it run in the winter?


Yes, yes, yes! Keep oil lubing the engine. If real cold to ride just starting it up at least once a week and let it warm up all the way. Also check your battery for full charge. If standing for months add "sta-bil" fuel stabilizer to your gas and follow instructions. Will not hurt engine. I add this every winter to all my bikes. Your bike will stay in great shape.
Ride safe - Doug
