Question about 1979 Suzuki Gs 550 L

1 Answer

Won't start with ignition or kick start

Started out not wanting to start with the electronic ignition, but would start by using the kick start. Finally quit starting completely. Haven't used the bike in 15 years, but want to repair it and start using it again. What would have caused this problem.

I've got a KTM 125sx 2002 I've done a top end rebuild piston etc and put a new coil and plug on it and the bike won't start with the kicker, only with a bump start took the plug out and its got a weak


Hi, Ian and the usual suspects are:
1. Fouled spark plugs.
2. Discharged battery, check battery terminals for damage or corrosion, check the battery cables at "BOTH" ends for loose, corroded, or broken connectors, "INSIDE" and outside the cable harness, perform connector wiggle test and check cables with an ohmmeter if necessary.
3. Loose connection at ignition coil or plug between ignition sensor and module.
4. Spark plug cables in bad condition, shorting / leaking, spark plug cable connections loose.
5. Faulty ignition coil or ignition / electronic module
6. Failed CKP, CMP, or BAS sensor.
7. Faulty ignition switch.
8. Security alarm failing to disarm needs reset

Yamaha Fino scooter won`t start when egine hot. WHY???


Could be a variety of things. Vapor lock from a leaky carb. Carb running too rich. Engine overheated. Heck, could even be some weird wiring gremlin. Hard to tell for sure, but a good solid carb clean and reset should help either way...

Can an 87 fxrs be kick started?


I've never heard such a thing...

But you have to have a kick starter first and I don't recall 87's having one. Correct me if I'm wrong or if the trans has been changed out then yes you could have one. But I've never heard of Harley's starting on the second compression stroke. Plus the modern after market ignition systems used without kick start transmissions are the same ones used with custom scoots that have a modern trans with the old look of the kick starter... Although with these high compression engines, compression releases are common place because neither the starter or kick starter could crank one without...

I have replaced the battery and ignition unit on my 1985 suzuki 700 es, the bike really sounds like it wants to run but wont start. Starter turns but engine won't kick over. Any Ideas?


Is it getting gas properly? Has it been sitting around for a while? The carburators on motorcycles need to cleaned after sitting around. The jet could be full of varnish. Are you getting spark for sure? Pull out a spark plug and put it in the wire, crank it over and see if the spark plug sparks. When you pulled the plug was it wet at all with gas? Then it probably isn't getting gas right. Just some of the things you could try.

Have you checked for a spark? or done a compression test? You may need to adjust the idle screw or tick over screw slightly 1/4 turn at a time (remember where you started.)
