Question about 1983 Suzuki Gs 550 L

2 Answers

The bike runs for almost precisely 15 minutes, then dies

You must wait approx. 20 minutes before you can start it again, (I guess to cool it down), then it runs perfect for another 15 minutes before dying again. When it is in its dead mode, no spark is reaching the plugs.

It may not be the coil. i got a bike that didnt run right, it came with box of spare parts and about 5 extra sets of coils. when i was talking to some buddies about what my bike was doing they told me that it was the coil. then i was talking to another buddy that used to work on motorcycles professionally he told me to check the points. I checked and adjusted them and now it runs just fine. so what i am trying to say is check your points before buying new coils.

My husgvarna staggers after a while of cutting then dies whats the problem


i am going to guess that it won't restart immediately after it dies either. It sounds to me like an ignition module going bad. it gets hot then cuts off the spark, once it cools down it starts and runs again until it gets hot again

More likely to be your ignition coils. They heat up and expand this can cause an open circuit which will close up again when it has cooled down. Although, a bad charging system may cause this problem. Check the battery voltage with engine switched off ( approx 12 volts) and with the engine running (approx 14 volts) If you are getting 14 volts then your battery is dead, if you aren't, then your charging system has a fault.

I was driving and the bronco died. I waited for a while then the bronco then the car strated again.


most of the time its the crank sensor doing this. it will die then restart after about 15 to 20 minutes, when it cools down,until it dies again. the crank sensor sends a signal from the crankshaft to pcm. to tell its the right timing, if bad timing will be way off. and engine will die out. good-day !!

Car shuts down after 20 minutes of driving


a likely problem is a fuel pump going down...as it gets warm, it heats up the wiring inside and they expand causing a loss of connection inside the pump...As it cools, it comes back together and works again...when it dies out turn the key off and listen closely for the pump to hum when you turn the key on...If it doesn't wait for it to cool and then when you try again listen and if you hear it and it starts, that's your problem...fuel pumps will go bad quickly if you don't keep your tank at least a quarter to half full as the gas is what keeps it cool so it don't get too hot and melt the shellac on the wiring which will eventually short out...

Reddy heater 165,000 runs for approx 15 to 20 min. I unplug wait 5 min. it restarts again and runs for another 15 to 20 min. and so on ....and so on purchased approx 1 year ago


There is a sensor in the tube that is a safety feture. it is a snap disc it maybe faulty, it is reading that the tube is to hot and shutting down, it cools and works again, check snap disc and also they need pleanty of fresh air.
