Question about 2002 Suzuki LS 650 Savage

1 Answer

Suzuki Savage 650 LS 4 gears found not 5. I just bought a 2002 Suzuki Savage It runs great, plenty of power but I can't find 5 gears only 4. I've had it to 65 and had no over-reving. Am I missing something, or do I have a problem?

Your bike has a fifth gear. The problem is probably a bent shift fork. Broken engagement dogs could be present but I have never seen that happen in anything other than 1st and second gear. This is approximately an $800 to $1000.00 repair. Personally, I really like only having to shift 4 gears. Don't you?

Below is a partial image of your trannie and also a generic image showing how a slider gear moves left and right when pushed by a shift fork. In this example the gear dogs engage into either 1st gear or 2nd gear depending on which way the fork moves the slider gear. If the fork were bent, the slider may go into second gear but not have enough movement to reach first gear. If the gear dogs were broken off then the gear has no way to engage.

I don't get paid for my answers but I do take pride in them, I just try to help where I can. So if you feel it is right, > > A “very helpful” rating for this answer? Thanks!

The Suzuki Savage didn't add a fifth gear until 1995. Your bike only has four!

2002 suzuki savage


I just bought the same bike. I had to choke it hard to even get it to start. Seemed as if it was running lean. It sputtered under acceleration and would die when I pushed the choke in. My first step I filled the tank the tank with 93 octane gas. This is a high compression motor. After gas swap my bike jumped out of it's skin. No more choking and very smooth through the power band and does not sputter no more. A totally different bike from then

How do I change front fork seals on 1998 suzuki savage


Have a 2006 suzuki s40 formerly known as the Savage 650 one cylinder. I ordered parts and tools to change front fork seals from Suzuki and its been 6 months they are on backorder. I decided to go another route since I need my bike running to and fro work. I went on ebay and bought good used forks from a parted out 06 that had really low miles. Put these on and all is great. The forks were $150.00 but that is not bad considering I did not have to buy fork oil, seals, tools for the job. Just had to put that on. Right now there is a set for a very reasonable price. Good thing about the s40's or savages plenty of good used parts to fix and they are easy to work on. I did it so anyone can. If you have any further questions on this Suzuki let me know.
