If you buy an oem ignition switch the wires will be the exact same color and make this repair very simple.

SOURCE: electrical problem

Suzukis aren't the only bikes with this problem. Certain Hondas are notorious for stator shorting. If you can get the temperature down you will be able to get MANY more miles out of the stator. I'm referring to the stator temperature. If you have any heavy load accessories (extra lights, boom box, etc.) you will need to get rid of them. If the battery is ancient it will really load up the alternator. Check out the rectifier. My last BMW had a small daylight running headlight that drew about a third of the night time headlight wattage. If all is well electrically, install an aftermarket oil cooler on the engine.

There should be a spring loaded pressure bar with a external set bolt you loosen a little to let the spring push the bea against the chain.

I have a Suzuki gs 550 1980 sometimes I don't have spark.

with electrics start at one point and eliminate each possible cause ie; is the kill switch corroded inside the switchgear due to water ingression, when did you last change the your coil working there a loose/damaged connection in the ignition system wiring, a bad earth there dirt on your electronic ignition pick up or if you have points do they need cleaning/replacing condensers need replacment from time to time. you may have a damaged ecu if you have electronic ignition.. hope this helps
