Hi Anonymous, could be a fuel problem, but more than likely it's an ignition problem. First remove the spark plugs and check their condition, electrodes should be clean dry and have a lite tan color. If they look good put one in a plug wire, make sure the run/stop button is in the run position, ground the plug threads on bare metal like a cylinder fin and crank over the engine. If you get spark your ignition system is ok, and I would train my focus on the fuel system, is fuel getting to the carb ect. If you have no spark try retrieving a trouble code to point you in the right direction. If you are unfamiliar with this procedure go to http://www.fuelmotousa.com/harleycodes.html Good luck

1980 Suzuki Gs450L won't start. I stalled out pretty bad in 4th gear and it won't start back up after. Bike won't even crank over, just makes a clicking noise. Any ideas?


pull the plugs then crank motor you may find one cylinder full of gas and that will keep it from cranking, if it cranks without the plugs allow it to dry for a bit , make sure plugs are dry then install and hopefully GO!

Error code 40, found problem, still wont start


you can disconnect the battery to clear the codes. If I remember correctly the code 40 is indicating an open injector circuit. You might want to check that area as well as the service manual for more detail

Bike stalls out in neutral and wont start back up while riding


It sounds like the battery may be bad in spite of Auto-Zone's pronouncement. The connectors to the battery may be bad enough to make a poor connection to the battery posts. Is the battery water level up to the line in each cell?
Re-jet one step bigger as the baffle removal will make it run lean.
