Question about Suzuki GSX-R 600 Motorcycles

1 Answer

Hello, I have a 2001 gsxr 600 that won't start. It sit for about a month and ran fine the last time I rode it. When I turn the key to the on position and the panel lights up and the rpm's tach out then go back to 0 but the neutral light doesn't come on (it is in neutral) and the fuel pump isn't priming. I checked the fuses and they are ok, I just don't know what to do next. Can you please help??.

    I have asimilar problem on my Honda CBF500 when weather became cold.
    Neutral indication is working correct but the motor does not want to start.
    I found losen (-) cable on the battery, tightened but it does not help.
    As temporary solution (because I need to drive) I turn 1 gear, push bike gorward and back a bit, next turn on Neutral position (neutral indication stil works correctly).

    But after this manipulation the motor starts. after few day if that repeats I repeat steps above. I am sure the problem is with neutral switch, connection to switch or wiring

Well...normally with most bikes...neutral indication is only needed to start the bike while its on the sidestand.
Even though it is in neutral because it doesn't indicate it, you need to have the sidestand up, and the clutch lever pulled in to attempt a start. Make sure kil switch is set to Run.
If it does start....because of no neutral indication, it should kill the engine as soon as you try to set the sidestand down.
If it will start and run....to look for the neutral indication issue, you need to trace the harness going to the neutral switch (or gear indication switch depending on make and model).
Any chance of rodent damage to wiring while stored....just seems odd the neutral light worked before...and now it doesn't. My experience is with Yamaha, and they usually grounded the neutral circuit at the switch, so you need all wiring connections secure and no wire breaks to get neutral indication, and satisy the interlocks.

I have a 1990 Suzuki Gxsr 750 I turn the key on and lights come on when I try to hit the start button it does nothing rode to gas station and back morning n when I got off work later it did not start.


Hi, William and the usual suspects are:
1. Ignition Switch not in the "ON" position.
2. Engine Run Switch in the "OFF" position.
3. Discharged battery, needs to be 12.5 volts or better and be able to pass a load test if necessary, check 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 if necessary.
4. Bank angle sensor tripped and ignition/light key switch not cycled to the "OFF" position and then back to the "ON" position.
5. Faulty ignition switch.
6. Faulty starter button.
7. Faulty kickstand or clutch pull in switch/sensor.
8. Security alarm needs a reset.
9. Starter control circuit, relay, or solenoid faulty.
10. Main fuse or circuit breaker may be blown or faulty.
11. Electric starter shaft pinion gear is not engaging or over-running starter clutch slipping.

1999 Suzuki GSXR 600 turns over extremely slow


Hi, Sharon my gut tells me you may have a faulty battery ground cable connection to the frame or engine case or your starter relay, starter solenoid, starter motor are being given last rites for this scenario you will need your service/owners manual if you can't find the first and best tool you ever bought for your Suzuki, despair not, for a mere zero $0 you can download another one.

GSXR 600 K1 Won't start tries to fire up and the exhaust pops but that's all


Based off of the limited information, the solutions are going to be generalized.

Visually check your battery for any acid build up. If you spot any, obviously some acid remove would be called for. Acid can sap a battery's output to a starter.

Visually inspect fuel components. Fuel injectors on bikes tend to get clogged when they sit for a while. Especially on older models. Refer to a repair guide for your specific model for guidance on the procedure to inspect fuel injectors.

Those two common starting problems for bikes. Without more information it is hard to offer a specific solution.

My 1999 gsxr 600 turns over but won't start it was fine until changed front tire


changing front tire has nothing to do with your bike not starting! first start by turning the key to the on position, do the lights come on bright? turns sigs Etc, work normally, hit hi beam, does it work, if yes then i would guess your battery does have enough juice to turn it over. Since you said it was running fine before this i doubt its a fuel problem but check your fuel pump fuse just to insure! if fuse is good then its time to get out the meter pull off the seat and take a voltage reading across the battery terminals. if it reads only 12.1v or less, it needs a trickle charge for about 5 hours. Batteries only last about two to three years! if you charge it and it starts!! but sputters when you ride it, then change the battery its going bad!
