It is OK to jump start your motorcycle from a car battery as long as you do not crank the starter too long (it will burn the armature) and as long as the car/other vehicle is not running when you jump start your bike ( you can damage your electrical components( igniter box)). See if you can exchange one with a friend to see if that is the bad component.

How do I remove the main fuse in an 02 Suzuki Grand Vitari XL7?


Sparks do fly, the last connection on the cables is ground
to a metal , on engine not battery,
this will make a small, spark. all do, that. done right.
but if done backwards, a huge spark with the 2 batteries bucking each other, and damage will happen.!
yes you may blow the main fuses,
my guess you blew the 80amp fuse in the main fuse box under hood.
did you put the new battery in correctly Plus to PLUS
and NEG to NEG lugs, if not, BOOM AGAIN.
open hood,
fuse 1, if it ok, then the others fuse to the right blew.
when fuse 1 blows, all things die. zero power to anything in car
including head lights, (head lights are always the first check)

1980 Suzuki GS750L won't start


Hi, Anonymous before testing any electrical component in the Starter Circuit it is "IMPERATIVE" that you have a fully charged battery of 12.5 volts or more and be able to pass a proper "LOAD" test because your battery may have 12.5 volts or more but little or zero amps causing the battery to be faulty and must be replaced, especially "AGM" batteries.
1. Ignition Switch not in the "ON" position.
2. Engine Run Switch in the "OFF" position.
3. Check the battery terminals for damage or corrosion check the battery cables at "BOTH" ends for loose, corroded, or broken connectors, "INSIDE" and outside the cable harness, perform connector wiggle test and check cables with an ohmmeter.
4. Bank angle sensor needs a reset or is faulty.
5. FOB battery low or dead.
6. Faulty ignition switch.
7. Faulty starter button.
8. Faulty kickstand or clutch pull in switch/sensor.
9. Security alarm needs a reset.
10. Starter relay, solenoid or starter circuit wiring faulty.
11. Starter armature or field coils have failed.
12. Main fuse or circuit breaker may be blown or faulty.
13. The electric starter is working but starter clutch has failed.
14. Check for engine trouble codes.

1981 Suzuki 750L. Wont start properly


Sounds like the battery you have in the bike has gone bad sence you have to jump start it all the time. And yes the bike will run bad cause the cdi need a good voltage to work correctly. Get new one and put in new asid in and put it on the charger till it is fully charged and you should be good to go.

1986 suzuki gs450, starter selanoid clicks, starter wont run, can the selanoid be the problem? or the cdi?


if the bike start by pushing it , i believe that your battery would be at fault and not your selonoid .
the solonoid can be tested by arching the terminals with a spare battery but make sure the main battery is unplugged .
Also , try to push your bike in gear for a few metres and try to start it after as your starter motor could be sticking .
try this first before going to buy anything and let me know how you go .
Be very careful to disconnect your battery first

Float setting for BS34ss carb


I have a set my float to 22.0 +- 1.0 for a Mikuni carb.
To set floats, drain the carbs, pull the carbs from the bike invert and remove float bowl.
With the carb inverted, take off the float bowls. Take off the gasket. Use a vernier caliper or an accurate device to measure from the carb body to the top of the float block.
Here is are a couple of good sites about carbs and such.

I have a Suzuki gs 550 1980 sometimes I don't have spark.


with electrics start at one point and eliminate each possible cause ie; is the kill switch corroded inside the switchgear due to water ingression, when did you last change the plugs.is your coil working correct.is there a loose/damaged connection in the ignition system wiring, a bad earth perhaps.is there dirt on your electronic ignition pick up or if you have points do they need cleaning/replacing condensers need replacment from time to time. you may have a damaged ecu if you have electronic ignition.. hope this helps

Need help with my 1980 suzuki gs750l


you should see a spigot on the carb ( normally a brass color) thats where the fuel line goes. and to check for spark, pull off plug cap, remove plug and place it into the cap. rest the plug on the motor so it is touching at the thread part. then try to start the bike while looking at the plug, you will see the spark jump from the electrode, thats if you have a spark, if not then you need to start looking at why? maybe bad coil of just a fuse blown. do you have all other electrics working
