Question about 2006 Suzuki GS 500 F

2 Answers

I bought my first bike used & it rode fine! Its dying

I bought a suzuki gs500f & it seemed a little low on oil so I added some. After I added the oil, I took it for a ride, & after about 5 minutes it started missing & died. Now it will only run for a couple minutes & start to miss & die. Anyone please help, Im so frustated its my first bike & I cant even ride it! Did I do something wrong in adding oil? I just added it like I would in my truck.

Possibly if too full oil is getting to combustion chamber? Have you pulled a spark plug to see what they look like? You should check owners manual for correct procedure on addin/changing oil. I always recommend the shop manual for usually under $15 at auto/cycle parts stores.

There is a oil dipstick on the right outer casing. Use it to maintain proper oil level. Drain some out if too much is in the gearbox.

Drain the two carbs and then make sure that the fuel is getting from the tank to the carbs. There is probably water condensation in the carbs causing the running problem.

My suzuki 2005 s83 boulevard oil looks like chocolate milk.Bike has only 8000 miles.Rode and checked oil the other day was fine.I only rode 1 mile, not that hard.Checked oil today...looks bad


Sounds like water / oil emulsification. Is your bike water cooled or air cooled? If it's water cooled then you may have a gasket leak. If it's air cooled then you may not be riding the bike enough to get a good temp up inside the engine which would drive off the condensation inside the crank case / sump thereby leading to the emulsification. You say you rode an easy mile - certainly that's not enough to get the temp up enough to drive off the water. Was the bike running ok? Was it accelerating and braking ok? If so then try a cautious longer run and keep an eye on your levels. If in doubt consult a bike shop.

I presume that you were riding it back from the dealer when you had the smoke problem ?? in that case one possible cause could be that when they serviced it they got some oil on the exhaust pipe and when the pipe got hot it burned it off. let me know if that helps or not. Alex.

Hi, I would still suspect the battery. Lights and ignition do not really draw much current neither does the bike when running.. Your battery goes almost flat when the starter is engaged lots of amps are required. Try this check: remove the battery (undo negative lead first please) then connect a high wattage bulb across the terminals see how long it takes for the bulb to dim. If the bulb is still bright after an hour re charge the battery (please use a dedicated bike charger max output 1 amp). Re-fit the battery (connect positive lead first please). If bike still does not start check starter solenoid is activating it should click when you press the start button. Hope this helps.
