If the starter is spinning when you try to start but doesn't spin the engine over then you most likely have teeth missing off the flywheel ring gear. The facts that you say you have to push it and then it starts means the flywheel position changes and the starter has good teeth on the flywheel to engage. To confirm this next time the engine won't crank over remove the starter and look inside at the flywheel for missing flywheel teeth.
clean and tighten all your wires, especially the ground, from the battery to your starter. If this doesn't work have the battery checked out, sometimes you get enough voltage but not enough cranking amps to engage the starter
Some manufacturers (I'm more familiar with Yamaha than Suzuki) used a starter button that had 2 sets of contacts...one for the headlight, one for the starter circuit. The idea being to save battery power while cranking,,,,so as you pushed in the button, first it opened the headlight contacts, killing the headlight. As you pushed in further, it closed the starter circuit contacts cranking the starter.
Problem is over time...dirt etc gets in behind the button, so when you let your finger off, the starter contacts reopened, but the headlight contacts don[t close again....so no headlight!
Key off, Try spraying some Wd40 around the button to flush out any crud and work the button in and out letting it snap out several times.
Then retry key to see if headlight is back.
The chainbrake should be activated when starting the chain saw. Activate the chain brakeby pushing the front hand guard forwards.b>Cold engine Start position, 1: Set the start/stop switch in the choke position by pulling thered control outward - upward.Decompression valve: Press the valve to reduce the pressure in the cylinder and makestarting easier. Once the machine has started the valve will automaticallyreturn to its original setting.Air purge: Press the air purge diaphragm repeatedly until fuel fills thediaphragm (at least 6 times). The diaphragm need not be completely filled.Grip the front handle with yourleft hand. Hold the chain saw on the ground by placing your right foot throughthe rear handle.Pull the starter handle, 4: Pull the starter handle with your right hand and pull out thestarter cord slowly until you feel a resistance (as the starter pawls engage)then pull firmly and rapidly until the engine fires.Push down the red choke control: As soon as the engine fires which can be heard through a"puff" sound, push down on the red choke control.Pull the starter handle (6): Keep on pulling the cord powerfully until the engine starts.
check the conections of the wires at the starter and silonoid disconect battery first as to not short anything out by bumping the engine wich is grounded if all conections are good then the bendex in the silonoid is not engaging all the way to operate the starter or the broshes in the starter ar woren out eather way just replace the starter a new one comes with the silonoid on it and they are only about 45-65 bucks at schucks and have a 1 year warranty. i dont recomend just replacing the silonoid on the starter cause adventuly you will have to replace the starter any ways. or if you are on a budget then u can remove the silonoid from the starter and sand the bendex in the silonoid with some fine grit sand paper and use air to blow any debres out of it and reinstall silonoid and it will get u by for a short time.
its the silonoid that bolts to the starter.the brushes inside the silonoid are not making good enough contact with the copper probe inside. solution buy a new starter or check the voltage going to the starter by checking the hot from the battery and the hot going from the starter to the alternator.
On most bikes including Kawasakis, the starter button would be on the right side of the handle bar on the throttle grip assembly. It would be right below the headlight switch. Above the headlight switch would be a switch that must be set to RUN, this is the engine kill switch.
If the above still fails to crank/start the bike, then the following would have to be checked:
battery and battery cables;
If the engine will crank but will not engage/run, then you need to check for:
spark at the plugs;
fuel as supplied by the carbs.
Just a start, do postback how things turned up or should you need additional information. Good luck and Thank you for using FixYa.
