Question about 1982 Suzuki GS 650 GT

1 Answer

Hi, I have a 1994 suzuki RF900R and It's not starting. For a while I had to press the switch botton a few times until it clicked and started, but the last time it did not start no matter how many times I pressed the botton though the battery still worked. Any ideas?!

There are a few things to check.
1) are the wires good? any carbon buildup? melting? corosion on the ends? clean or replace and try again.
2) inspect the solenoid and the wire leading from the solenoid to the starter, also check the fuses next to the solenoid. you can find the solenoid by tracing the power wire from teh starter back to teh lef side of the bike near where your **** ends up but under the seat. there should be one or two 20A(red) fuses in a holder with it. clean or replace any bad or corroded wires or ends and try again.
3)disassemble the switch housing and look for proper contact. I had this problem and there is a spring in there that likes to rust and fall out. i was able to wire wheel the spring and replace it and havent had a problem since.
hope this helps!

Can you put a 750 head on a rf900r?

no not a tall buddy because off the valves and the bore is bigger you can get the heads reskimmed which will make it smaller for more compression

Hi, i have a 1994 suzuki dr650 rse,it has noise on starting

Sounds like the starter motor clutch is worn or damaged and should be replaced.
Go to the link below and scroll down and click on STARTER CLUTCH. An exploded view diagram and part list is given. All sections of the bike are covered. The starter clutch is not a serviceable item and is replaced when faulty.
Your Yamaha dealer should freely verify the noise if your on good terms with them.
