Hi, I wonder if anyone can help me.
I have a 1989 Suzuki GS500E. We are in winter here and it always starts first turn of the key with a little choke.
Today I started it after not having started for 3 days - no problem, it fired up first turn of the key, After a few seconds I turned off the choke and gave it a few high revs to warm up the engine quicker [this I had always done on my previous bike a Honda Rebel].
All of a sudden the bike stopped and wouldn't start [turn over okay, but not firing]. I checked the plugs, which are only about 3 weeks old, to see if flooded, but they were fine.
I went inside house for 2 hours and then tried again - no success. The only thing I did do was to take off the seat so as to tighten the pillion passenger grab rail. other than that I didn't do anything. I have not had ANY problems before - I am mystified as to what the problem could be.
Can anyone please tell me where to look for the problem.
Kind regards,

SOURCE: bike runs in neutral but cuts out when a gear is selected.

Your sidestand switch kills the engine if the bike is put in gear with the sidestand down. If your stand is up and this is happening either the switch is broken or out of position. If it is broken you can twist the wires together until you can replace the switch. If it is just bent out of position you can bend it back carefully.

most likely you have a CDI box failure. the easiest way to find out tho is take it to a dealer and have them run a diagnostic test, usually around 60$ find out whats wrong and depending on the problem have them fix it or tackle the issue yourself.

SOURCE: no fire to spark plugs on my 2008 gsxr 1000

check kill switch, then battery for full voltage, 12.5V Check fuses and wiring for loose connections.
If you have the wiring diagram check ignition switch, do the simple stuff, before you start replacing coils or sending units on the ignition system.

SOURCE: i have a 05 gsxr 750, replaced battery, now no start.

Hi and welcome to FixYa,

Initially, try starting with the clutch lever pulled in and / or the sidestand folded up.  Additionally, determine if there is a clicking sound.  If there is, then it would most likely be the starter solenoid.

Good luck and thank yu for asking FixYa.

2005 roadstar silverado starting riding bike cut out, now it wont start, turns over perfect, any ideas?

Hi, you need to first determine if the problem is ignition or fuel related. Spray some starting fluid into the air filter inlet then try to start it. You need to open the throttle 1/4 to 1/2 open. If the engine fires for a few seconds, you have a fuel delivery problem. If the engine does not fire at all, you'll need to verify you have no spark. Then you'll know it's an electrical/ignition problem.

Motor is turning over good,can smell gas,it is like a kill switch is off somewhere,does anyone have any ideals what is wrong,have checked fuses on side of bike.

Once up on a time, something similar happened to me. In my case, a pin broke on the cam shaft and as a result, the time was way way off. Checking for spark in this case does no good because I had strong evidence of spark ... it was only that the spark was not on time. Sometimes in this situation, you will get a back fire depending on when the spark happens. In my case I didn't get back fire ... only smell of gas and no run.

Show me the bank angle sensor

Above the oil filter behind the round plastic cover. It has a red led that flashes when you turn the bike over or the bike runs. if it doesn't flash - it is bad or the fuse to it is bad.

Dos,nt take gas bake firing

I have the same bike with 8000 miles on it., Alot of bikes backfire especially these with the emissions package. I'm a smog tech and what backfiring means is detanation from a lean condition. The cylinder gets hot on decel and you get the pop. You could go the sabrehood forums and register and talk to people about these bikes.

What I did was put a k/n filter. put a stage 2 jet kit and a cobra slash cut exhaust and this seemed to reduce the amount of backfireing alot.
Bikes loud and maybe a little quietier exhaust would of been better but for now bike runs alot better.
Hope this helps

2002 r1 code 19 on speedo and no fire

19 is associated with the sidestand interlock

The bike must be in neutral or have the sidestand up. These interlock the starting cut-off relay.
Does your neutral light work? If it does not, that needs to be resolved, but bike should still start if the sidestand switch is made (stand is up).
If bike still does not start, then you may have problem with the diode assembly or the starting circuit cut-off relay.

I busted out all the baffels in the stock pipes and was wondering what would happen if i didnt get the bike rejected. the bike runs good its just it back fires due to me busting the pipes out but i can...

baffles are on a bike for a dual reason one it cuts down on noise and the other real important one is proper back pressure your valves will get no commpression relief if the air can just escape to fast your bikes motor will get hotter faster damage depends on how your valves are set and the choice of spark plug you run i would say for your peace of mind if you want a loud pipe get power cones to give back the pressure your motor needs and then you can run a free exaust flowing pipe that back fire is your valves already going out of adjustment they are not closing right and extra air is sneaking in during the intake /exaust transition i hope this helps you

Will not start turns over ok but will not fire up

during the winter you can get build up on the tip of your spark plug that will prevent the engine from firing. remove the spark plug and soak it in gas for ten minutes or so. Dry it ogg with a clean towel reinstall it and it should start right up.

Back fires when starting runs irratic


Offhand, may I suggest that you have the battery externally fully charged. Thereafter start/run the bike with the voltage regulator (rectifier) disconnected. Shorted diodes or transistor inside the regulator maybe responsible for the abnormal heat buildup and likewise the backfire and/or the intermittent engine run. The CDI may be cutting out if the voltage is higher.

Just a start, do postback how things turned up or should you need additional information. Good luck and Thank you for using FixYa.
