Question about 1980 Suzuki GS 750 L

I have a 1980 suzuki gs1000 g. clutch?

I have a 1980 suzuki gs1000 g. I started having a problem with the clutch i believe. i replaced the cable with a new one, and it did not fix the problem. When i pull on the clutch lever it is very hard to squeeze. What could it be. the trans is fine, i know that. would it just be the clutch discs and springs that need to be replaced?

Drain the oil and install a new oil filter. Dirty, gritty oil can make a clutch act this way. After the oil change , ride the bike for an hour or so. Now drain the oil a second time. Doing this will flush most all of the grit from the engine.

    hey bud, I have the same bike with the vetter /windjammer dressing on it.
    it is hard only between 1st and second and visa versa, all the rest of the gears move fine,
    I just learnt to live with it. other than finding it hard to find neutral, it works just fine....it could be just the nature of the beast. I hope this helps at least you know other bikes are somewhat behaving the same...that oil change maybe helpful but it didn't help me any. I even changed gear oil twice.

    ride safe.
    nice bike.

1979 Suzuki GS1000, cylinders 2 & 3 are not firing


Hi, Anonymous you need "FIVE" things in order for a cylinder to run properly:
1. FUEL: in order to validate your not getting fuel spray some starting fluid into the air cleaner and hit the starter button, if it fires up and runs for a few seconds then you know you have a fuel delivery issue. Multi carb banks should be bench "SYNC"
2. SPARK: remove the spark plug and with it connected to the spark plug cable ground the threads to something metal you should see a bluish white spark if not you have a faulty spark plug, spark plug cable, ignition coil, condenser, CKP, ECM, sensor or the wiring in between.
3. COMPRESSION: you must have at least 80-100 PSI for most bikes, multi-cylinder engines should be within 10-15% of each other if not perform a leak down test you may have a burnt or bent valve or hole in the piston or broken rings.
4. CAM TIMING: confirm your timing marks are aligned to see if the cam chain or adjuster are worn out and the chain has skipped a couple teeth.
5. IGNITION TIMING: on older bikes check to see if your points have not closed up, timing plate has not become loose and confirm with a timing light for proper retard and advance functions, on newer bikes where timing is controlled by an ECM and is nonadjustable check you CKP, TPS, MAP, O2, sensor or its counterpart for integrity.

1980 Suzuki GS750L won't start


Hi, Anonymous before testing any electrical component in the Starter Circuit it is "IMPERATIVE" that you have a fully charged battery of 12.5 volts or more and be able to pass a proper "LOAD" test because your battery may have 12.5 volts or more but little or zero amps causing the battery to be faulty and must be replaced, especially "AGM" batteries.
1. Ignition Switch not in the "ON" position.
2. Engine Run Switch in the "OFF" position.
3. Check the battery terminals for damage or corrosion check the battery cables at "BOTH" ends for loose, corroded, or broken connectors, "INSIDE" and outside the cable harness, perform connector wiggle test and check cables with an ohmmeter.
4. Bank angle sensor needs a reset or is faulty.
5. FOB battery low or dead.
6. Faulty ignition switch.
7. Faulty starter button.
8. Faulty kickstand or clutch pull in switch/sensor.
9. Security alarm needs a reset.
10. Starter relay, solenoid or starter circuit wiring faulty.
11. Starter armature or field coils have failed.
12. Main fuse or circuit breaker may be blown or faulty.
13. The electric starter is working but starter clutch has failed.
14. Check for engine trouble codes.
