SOURCE: hi i have a 1993 suzuki GS500E it has been sitting

I had the same problem with my '81 850. Try taking the carbs off and clean them with carb spray. Take out the jets and spray them good. Then find ethenol free premium. The ethenol will gum up the carbs.

SOURCE: suzuki gs500e all electrics work

Electrical issues are difficult to fix in general. I have a Suzuki GSX-F Katana which has similar electrical mapping. When I was fixing my brake lights, I found the connection underneath the rear faring behind the seat. You'll need to make sure those wires are there, undamaged, and connected. Otherwise locate the fuse box and make sure the fuse for the rear brakes is still good. If you like my solution please feel free to give me a thumbs up!

3. Spark plugs in bad condition or partially fouled.
4. Spark plug cables in bad condition and leaking.
5. Spark plug gap too close or too wide.
6. Faulty ignition coil, module, and or sensor.

1994 Suziki GS500E Bike has been in storage for 9 years. Just did the carbs, hooked everything back up and it wont start. No fuel is reaching the carbs. No sure why- also there is air in the clear fuel...


Since you just did the carbs, my guess is that you forgot to hook up the vacuum line from one of the carbs to the fuel valve.
The fuel valve should have 2 lines on it....one brings fuel to the carbs, and the other uses the vacuum from ONE of the carbs to open it - the main idea being that it shuts the fuel OFF when the engine isn't running.
Hope that fixes ya up!

After I long and cold winter season, my gs500E doesn't want to start. How can I troubleshoot? Do I need to recharge teh battery?


If the bike has been sitting without running, your carbs bowls should have been empty. You may have old gas in the lines, check the battery voltage with a meter, check battery acid levels, try a good charger that will increase the voltage for cranking, and apply choke. If it doesnt start clean carbs, and air filters. check sparks plugs may be fouling out because of failed initial starting.
