1991 suzuki intruder 1400 starter cranks strong but won't start

Hello - the bike is new to me last year. Ran great last summer and this Spring - but noticed that it started to have some problems starting. It would start and then sputter and if I gave it gas - it would seem to ''blow out the cob webs'' and then run just fine. I let it sit for a week while on vacation - and now it won't start. The starter turns over just fine - battery charged up - but it is not even really turning over the motor - not even close to starting. I do smell gas - so I think the carb and full pump are working. I read previous posts to check the fuses and and replace the spark plugs - i see where the fuses are - but not sure where the spark plugs are - any other suggestions before I head out to grab the plugs and check the fuses? Thanks in advance for any help - this is my only ride and I can't afford to tow it down to the shop...

Ok, you said you have spark in one of you comments. The most critical thing on a bike that sits is the fuel. It can go bad in less than six months and cause carb problems if not drained fotr storahe. Make sure your fuel is fresh aand you will be surprised.

The spark plugs are under covers at the top of the cylinders. There is one plug on the back cylinder under a cover on the left side, and one on the front cylinder on the right side. You have to remove 2 10mm screws to take the covers off.

1991 suzuki 750 intruder, hot do you replace battery, do i need to take everything apart?


No, not at all.

Normal procedure is to turn off ignition and any plug in accessories and simply remove terminal connections.

The site below has exploded view diagrams for your bike to help with access. All sections are covered.

Battery has a vent tube attached that will come out with the battery. If stuck, remove tube from battery and pull from beneath bike. Identify tube as there is a few other tubes from carby/crank etc.

Cheers.

It's electrical problem, it seems like something is draining your bike's battery, not letting enough current to go to starter for a strong engine cranking, I suspect there might be a short circuit within the ignition switch and/or wiring, as you said the bike keeps running even with the key out.

it sits for 2 years so you have to general check and clean everything, first replace the battery, spark plugs oil filter(if any) have your oil change, clean and balance your carburator and air cleaner, remove your gas tank empty it and clean use new gas, if you can spray an WD40 on all wiring socket then start the bike

Suzuki 1400 intruder wont start.. just clicking noise.


It's most likely the connection to the battery. The screws dont tighten in well and you get the famous clicking....I replaced the stock philips screws with a hex bolt and after two years of trying to solve the problen have been starting everytime for the past year no problems. Another gie away is the intermitant starting problem gets worse when wet.
