I have a 1980 Suzuki GS 250 motorcycle that will not charge the battery when running. Will only run off of the battery.What could the problem be, and is there a manual available to download?

    We changed the battery the first thing. But thanks for answering us back. Bike has only 8,000 original miles.We were thinking that it might be the stator. Didn't want to spend the bucks if I was wrong.

SOURCE: Battery on 125cc Suzuki GS is ok- but not being charged

You need to have stator coil tested.
An alternate problem could be the regulator/rectifier.
Both of these should tbe checked by a dealer

Cheers

SOURCE: i have a 1980 suzuki 850 gs and its not charging

As suggested, check the voltage with the engine running accross the battery. If its below 14 volts you have an issue with the stator windings/regulator/rectifier/wiring.
Do the cheapest thing first and clean up all electrical connections, esp the earths.
A manual will tell you how to test the charging system, but the Suzuki GS range has always had charging issues.
The simplist method is to fit the combined reg/rectifier unit from a Honda CB250/400 Superdream.
Always keep your engine oil topped to the max mark, as this cools the stator.
Dont leave this, it is not unknown for the entire system to fail including the CDI if left unchecked.

Hi Henry, I'm leaning towards weak battery or starter, do a proper load test on the battery and the starter circuit, for more information about your question please visit the website below. Good luck and have a nice day.

How do i replace battery in 1980 suzuki 850 gs?


Do you know where it is located?
Have you had issues with it, as in dead and let to freeze, acid spilled out onto the bike from being frozen or overcharged etc?
If so mix up some baking soda and water and pour over connections and frame then wash off bike before swapping battery.
Take off negative first and put back on last, just like with a car battery.
If wet cell, fill to proper level and charge first on 1A or smaller charger for a day... If GSM or Gel, install and ride.

Can you use a lock set from a 1980 gs 750 on a 1981 gs 750


seat lock yes, ignition lock if it fits in the hole ,you'll have to get a wiring diagram on line and match the wires by what they operate,if your really lucky wires run the same stuff and are the same color.

Electrical problem


Suzukis aren't the only bikes with this problem. Certain Hondas are notorious for stator shorting. If you can get the temperature down you will be able to get MANY more miles out of the stator. I'm referring to the stator temperature. If you have any heavy load accessories (extra lights, boom box, etc.) you will need to get rid of them. If the battery is ancient it will really load up the alternator. Check out the rectifier. My last BMW had a small daylight running headlight that drew about a third of the night time headlight wattage. If all is well electrically, install an aftermarket oil cooler on the engine.
