Since this bike has been in storage for eight years my feeling is that things might still be a bit stiff and gummed up.The best thing to do I think would be to take it out and ride it and get all the parts freed up and moving again.Do an oil change after a couple of thousand kms and see if it makes any difference.I can't see a bike with that kind of low riding time having any great problems BUT keep an ear on things. Good luck and good riding.

2002 suzuki savage

I just bought the same bike. I had to choke it hard to even get it to start. Seemed as if it was running lean. It sputtered under acceleration and would die when I pushed the choke in. My first step I filled the tank the tank with 93 octane gas. This is a high compression motor. After gas swap my bike jumped out of it's skin. No more choking and very smooth through the power band and does not sputter no more. A totally different bike from then

Can u fit a Suzuki sportbike motor on a 2001 Suzuki savage ls650

The new engine is NOT going to slide right in. You would need to cut the frame tubes, add tube sections and then cut off and move engine mount tabs on the frame. Another problem will be the alignment of the front sprocket to the rear sprocket. A wider engine than the old one will stick out on the right side. This would affect the balance of the bike and cause a squirrelly ride. Please rate my answer. Thanks.

Suzuki Savage 650 LS found 4 gears not 5

One down (first), four up.
Unless the box is toast... but you would hear it... it isn't exactly a new model - who knows how hard a life it has had...

Specifications , Air/fuel mix for my LS400 88' savage

Is the compression release operating properly? Is it stuck open a bit? Is the head gasket blown? Normal compression is 125psi to 150psi. This sounds like a stuck compression release, blown head gasket or burned valves. A mechanic will need to pull the cylinder head and do a valve job on it if the compression release or gasket is not the problem.

Please rate this answer. Thanks robbman1!
