Question about 1973 Suzuki GT 380
Posted by Anonymous on
Hi, you dont say if this is only 1 spark plug that does not spark, or the 3 plugs dont spark, lets assume its all 3, and you have checked that the engine run switch is in the run position, this is the switch on the r/ h handleber throttle twistgrip housing, also you have 12volts charge in the battery, the next thing to check is as this bike has 3 ignition coils 1 for each cylinder and also 3 sets of contact breaker points you can narrow the problem down to each cylinder indervidualy, ie if no1 cylinder does not spark check the points/ contact breakers are opening, more importantly closing for no1 cylinder this will be marked on the contact back plate, it may be nessasary to clean the points with some lite wet and dry, with the plug removed and resting on the cylinder head making a good earth, opening the points with a screwdriver between them should make the plug spark, when the ignition switch is turned on, repeat this on all 3 sets of points until you are happy they all spark, do not leave the ignition turned on for long periods of time without the engine running unless the run switch is in the off position as this will cause the ignition coil to overheat and eventualy burn out. realy great bike hope you manage to make it run, any further help feel free to contact me and i will try to answer your question, paul
