Question about 2005 Suzuki Boulevard S40

3 Answers

The s40 won't start!

After sitting in my garage all winter my 2007 s40 won't start. The battery is good and the engine turns over but it just won't fire up. I think the problem is either with the spark plug or the carburetor. Any advice on how to check either would be apprecaited as I'm rather clueless about any of this.

I recommend charging up the battery. It should be low as sitting for a long period of time, without any running time.

Hello there! I have a 1979 Harley-Davidson FXEF 1200 that isn't starting. I have replaced the battery and the spark plugs and it still won't start. Once in awhile the pistons get combustion but...


If the bike has been sitting for six months, the fuel that was in the float bowl probably evaporated. When it does this, it leaves behind a gummy substance that is actually the additives that the refineries add to the fuel for various purposes. The problem is that it has probably plugged up the jets in the carb. You need to take the carb off the engine, disassemble it completely, and soak it in professional grade carb cleaner. If you don't have the mechanical knowledge to do this, I'd suggest that you take it to someone that does. If the carb is a stock carb, it's a Keihin butterfly type carb and they can be very finnicky about the float needle setting.

Good Luck
Steve

Recheck the battery conections, undoing them clean them and then replace them, it may be that when you put the battery on charge if you didnot remove it from the bike you may have blown the main fuse, this is not the fuse located in the fuse box, it is the fuse located at the starter solenoide, follow the poss red wire from the battery to the solenoide, here you will find where the wires attach to the solenoide, a fuse located under a plastic cover, supplys ignition power, i trust you have done a thorough test on the battery. ?

Did you replace the gas? Use a gas stabilizer? Have you changed the fuel filter? Very important if you are letting a gas powered engine sit for any length of time. I suggest removing the tank, or if you can do it with the tank in place, flush it out, and replace the fuel filter.

Ben sitting in the garage all winter it has a new battery i checked all the fuses an the connections all it does is turn over but no fire


This new gas that everybody is selling with the ethanol goes bad very quickly try using some lucas fuel stabilizer and if that does work check the run / not run switch above the start button if it got some corrosion in the switch it would allow the engine to turn over but not fire. Good luck riding season is right around the corner.

Sitting all winter with battery tender, battery


The best place to store a battery is in the back of your refrigerator, but you don't want to do that.Your battery will hibernate in the cold, but will age in the warmth. Your car battery is outside all winter and it does not freeze. I put my batteries in a tray, fully charge them and leave them in the garage, topping them up one or twice during the winter and once before installation in the spring. If a battery freezes I would have had to replace it anyway it would not have been good for the season anyway. Put your battery on a different charger and have your battery load tested at a shop. You either have a defective battery, or a defective battery tender, or both. At any rate warm storage for batteries is bad, cool or cold is better for longevity.

Engine wont turn over at start


Hi, Do you have an alarm & Immobiliser fitted on your bike as these drain the battery on your bike very quickly? If so i would recommend removing your battery and fully charging it with a decent amp-age charger. If you have your garage attached to your house then i would definitely recommend purchasing a trickle charger and when not using your bike keep this plugged into the mains and you should not have this problem again. all motorbike shops sell these chargers If after this the battery goes flat again i would suggest purchasing a new battery. This is a common fault as most motorbikes sit in the garage through the winter months and if not kept on charge will deteriorate. Hope this helps.

My suzuki gsxr 750 sat all winter and i didnt winterize it at all. the battery died... i charged it and my bike just wont start. It cranks over just won.t start. What should i do?


check spark plugs,check for spark. check fuel is good. possible needle and seat gummed up in carb float bowl. disasemble and clean with brake or carb cleaner.do not change float level. re assemble ,you can use the cleaner to help to fire the motor with a shot through the carb. make sure you cleaner says flammable. good luck.
