1981 550 suzuki one cyclinder is dead has spark and fuel and bike runs but start extremly hard seems cold blooded

Check compression of cylinders, all should be close the same. Swap spark plugs and check if problem cylinder moved. If bike sits for long periods of time then most likely it will be a plugged carburetor.

Hello Maria to remove the spark plugs you will need a 3/8th drive13/16th spark plug socket with universal and a extension.removing the spark plug,first pull the plug caps off then use the socket wrench turn the spark plugs counter clockwise to remove and install the new plugs.turn the plugs until they are seated and tighten them 1/4 to 1/2 turn.

What is the spark plug gap for my 1987 suzuki 700

Spark plug gap is something that people will have different opinions, set them as per the manual. If you are buying new ones, they should be set as per the manufacturers specification and should not need adjustment. Never bang the plug against something to change the gap, adjust with some sort of lever. Plugs tend to fracture when hit hard enough and you might never know until it doesn't work.

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
