Question about 1998 Suzuki LS 650 Savage

1 Answer

My savage was running fine. I went to start it and wouldn't start. I thought it was the spark plug. So I began to take the tank off and notice the fuel lines didn't have any gas in them. I was took the tank all the way off and I was unable to get the gas to come out.

Check the spark plug. My truck did the same thing and it was because the spark plug had completely been removed.

Sounds like you got a tank of bad gas. That would easily cause your issues. Start by draining as much as you can, put a can of Seafoam in there, add a few gallons of fresh gas, drive to the gas station and tank up, and run that tank down until your gas light comes on before adding more. You may end up needing a fuel filter or plugs again, but with minimal run time on the bad gas, you'll probably be fine.

Check the condition of the plug again. If it appears to be fouled, you are likely running your carburetor mixture too rich. Adjust the carburetor and if you need to replace the plug again, do that. Make sure also that the plug is gapped correctly before installing it.

Hi i have just bought a 1990 650 savage & it does'nt start until about the 4th try of the button! i wondered if a change of spark plugs would sort it! & would i need to remove the tank to do this!...

it would make it easyer to life the tank if only to get at the 2 center plugs there a real pain to get out and in again, a good service is never a wast of time as the bike need it by the sounds of it
