You should also check ignition, there may be a fault with the coil or ignition generator, am manual would give you basic tests, are all jets clean and clear? Is the float valve letting enough fuel into the float chamber? Is ther good supplies of fuel getting to the main float valve's? Check your spark, it should be ccrisp and fat, and be powerful, ignition systems have so much that can develope intermittent faults, i no your truly in a Nightmare! Good Luck, The Yeti - Hastings

My suzuki 1986 gsxr wont start. a few weeks ago i was riding it and it was a little troublesome with the clutch shifting, now it just wont run. it wants to start but it wont. and when it try to start it,...


Hi there!
Too much gas mixture or there maybe plug problems. If it doesnt start, charge the battery and start the bike with new spark plugs. Replace the plugs, this usually works.
Let me know if this is any good. Other options:

1. THe spark plug cable
2. The ballast
3. The jets are clogged
4. Poor fuel quality.

1986 gsxr 400.not sparking r starting


Hi and welcome to FixYa,

If somehow, the CDI could be opened up, then component level repair maybe tried. There would be 2 final transistors that actually do the switching; 1 for each coil. Offhand, it would appear that 1 of those 2 is faulty. Otherwise, replacement is the only option.

Incidentally, in some versions, a fault in the tachometer could also cause one of the CDI's output to fail.

Postback results of tests.

Good luck and thank you for using FixYa.
