Remove the spark plug, put the bike in fourth or fifth gear then try a jump start but with the key turned off. If the rear wheel locks up when you jump on and release the clutch then the piston has probably seized up OR the kick start-to-clutch hub gearing is messed up. The best thing to do is to remove the left engine side cover and look at the kick start mechanism. You may need to remove the clutch assembly for a full inspection. With the clutch removed the rotor ( crankshaft flywheel ) should turn. If it will not turn then a seized piston, broken cam chain or dropped valve is likely. If the rotor does turn then the kick start mechanism is the problem. Please rate my answer. Thanks!

If you are running 5th gear mid throttle the compression in the motor wasnt enough to push the piston back down

Possible you ran out of fluid before refilling...or maybe didn't get bleeder closed tight when you released brake pedal, and some air got in the lines. I'd just bleed it again.

Sounds normal to me. Keep the choke on slightly until it warms up...As little as needed to
keep it running

Hello,

Kinda sounds like a problem I had some years back with a Honda. We checked everything and finally found a small hole in the carb boot. It was running fine at idle, but when taking off at full throttle it would **** out. We replaced the boot and clamps and it ran like new.

I hope this gives you an idea of what to look for.

Regards,

Oz

you may expect no lower than 10 hours because you have to remove motor and dissasembled and you may expect to reshim a valve or two that is too tight at the same time.....we rebuilt a kx 250f 2008 last week and rebuilt the crankshaft and change valve guide and reangle valve seat for 12 hours r&r.....

well if it has a title runs well and show no sign of excessive wear or tear meaning no parts are needed to be replaced, you should be looking at about $2200 high end $1700 quick sale. At least here in Ohio

With the valve rocker covers off and magneto inspection plug and centre plug removed, turn motor using nut on magneto, counter-clockwise until a line appears centrally in the inspection window. This will be at Top Dead Centre (TDC).
To check this, all rockers should at rebound with all valves closed. There should be a tiny amount of play on all rockers.
If not, (being a 4 stroke) rotate motor one full turn counter-clockwise.
All engine work or strip downs must commence from the position of TDC.
Cheers!

The site listed below has exploded view diagrams of all sections of your bike with parts named. This will show location of your idle screw. The diagrams will also show how the kicklever goes together.

it depends on what you have for a suzuki ? if you have a road cruiser, you have to remove lower
case cover on left side of motor, this will expose linkage adjustment rod. do not try too much
adjustment, work with it little at a time. it has a wet clutch.

You can go to Autozone and get an epoxy. You really need to get all of the water out of the system to make the epoxy stick. If you go to Autozone tell them that you need an epoxy for forged aluminum. That is what the case is made of. It is best if you can epoxy both sides of the case.
