Hi, Doug and the usual suspects are:
1. Spark plugs in bad condition or partially fouled.
2. Spark plug cables in bad condition or leaking.
3. Spark plug gap too close or too wide.
4. Faulty ignition coil, module and or sensor.
5. Battery nearly discharged.
6. 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.
7. Intermittent short circuit due to damaged wire insulation.
8. Water or dirt in the fuel system, carburetor or filter.
9. Fuel tank vent system plugged or carburetor vent line closed off.
10. Carburetor controls misadjusted.
11. Damaged carburetor or intake seals.
12. Loose or dirty ignition module connector at crankcase.
13. Faulty MAP, CKP, O2, and or CMP sensors.
14. Incorrect valve timing.
15. Weak or broken valve springs.
16. Damage intake or exhaust valve.

I have a 07 grizzly 700 4x4,when cruising at a steady speed you feel the bike surge,the faster you go the faster it surges,what could cause this?


Surging is usually at the throttles and idle air control motor. Cleaning them usually takes care of this problem. I haven't worked on bikes since the 80's. Surging back then was always dirty carbs. I am assuming that the new bikes are fuel injected and have an IAC motor.

Hey. I have juat bought a kawa zx9r. But the guy said he fitted an.other cdi so the rev counter dont work.. how do i fix it? Do i hve to replace the cdi to its original.one? Then the bike will be slower


Why do you think the bike would be slower? a cdi is mearly a box that regulates ignition pulses. There is no power to be generated here, unless you're flashing your ecu and re-mapping yout ignition table. Just run the original CDI. It's easier and cheaper to make yourself faster than your bike faster.

Cutting out on a cylinder until revved up to 3500rpm..1986 virago 700


Hi, Anonymous you need "FIVE" things in order for a cylinder to run properly:
1. FUEL: in order to validate your not getting fuel spray some starting fluid into the air cleaner and hit the starter button, if it fires up and runs for a few seconds then you know you have a fuel delivery issue.
2. SPARK: remove the spark plug and with it connected to the spark plug cable ground the threads to something metal you should see a bluish white spark if not you have a faulty spark plug, spark plug cable, ignition coil, condenser, CKP, ECM, sensor or the wiring in between.
3. COMPRESSION: you must have at least 80-100 PSI for most bikes if not perform a leak down test you may have a burnt or bent valve or hole in the piston or broken rings.
4. CAM TIMING: confirm your timing marks are aligned to see if the cam chain or adjuster are worn out and the chain has skipped a couple teeth.
5. IGNITION TIMING: on older bikes check to see if your points have not closed up, timing plate has not become loose and confirm with a timing light for proper retard and advance functions, on newer bikes where timing is controlled by an ECM and is nonadjustable check you CKP, TPS, MAP, O2, sensor or it's counterpart for integrity.

2001 ultra classic fuel injected Problem: I parked the bike and covered it up but forgot to add stabilizer to the fuel bike has set for about 3 months with battery tender on it. It started but ran...


Check fuel pressure. It should be in the region of 55 - 65 lbs.in After that ignition system needs to be checked. Does it run badly on both cylinders or just one? If one only then fuel pressure probably o/k.

Engine backfire


this sounds like a timing problem

Backfire and hesitates to take off then all of a sudden takes off


Check the air filter and then the ignition timing. If you have fitted a new exhaust get the bike set up on a rolling road, it will save petrol and make the bike go better (faster)

GE GSS25IFRF "surging"


The motherboard (part 801 on diagram) controls the speed of the fans and it may be going bad. The round type of condenser fan you have may be the cause of the weird sound.(part 730) Make sure it's clean. As long as it's cold you can run it just beware it may stop. http://www.appliancepartspros.com/partsearch/model.aspx?model_id=5241174&diagram_id=24104631#d24104631

I need information about how to adjust ignition timing of Suzuki Intruder 1400


hi,as with most modern bikes(if not all)the ignition timing is not adjustable,the advance ****** function and all the timing is controlled by the cdi(black box)unit,these are sealed and non adjustable,the only moving part in the whole ignition system is the interrupter which is located on the end of the crankshaft assembly which spins with the crankshaft between two pickup sensors,these sensors are also fixed and non adjustable.all of the timing parameters are factory preset and once again non adjustable,if you are having problems with the bike not running smoothly or surging etc,i would be looking at the carburettors or fuel system..hope this helps

Can't get the revs below 3500rpm


Remove the negative battery connection and leave it disconnected for about 15 minutes. That should reset your engine management system. I would try a different battery if you have one handy, or maybe put yours on a battery charger. For the problem to appear suddenly after six weeks without running the bike my best guess is the battery is not functioning properly.

Good luck.
