Suzuki Motorcycles - Recent Questions, Troubleshooting & Support


The Suzuki GS500 may just need new spark plugs. This is an older bike. If the plugs check out you may want to look around. I don't know how much you know or how far you want to go but. A loose timing chain or sprocket, bad spark plugs, leaking intake manifold, old gas or dirty/faulty carb can cause this symptom.

Hi, Joey, to begin with, I "HIGHLY" recommend using a torque wrench on all fasteners to avoid the distress of broken bolts-studs, if you snap a bolt or an exhaust stud I feel your pain. This will happen from time to time if you work with nuts and bolts. "ALL" threaded fasteners have a torque spec for their relative material compound and tinsel strength. The trick is being able to recognize the fasteners markings to determine its tensile strength so the proper torque spec can be applied. If you break or snap a fastener it is because you used too much tightening or loosening force or the fastener was faulty, to begin with, ie. rust-corrosion etc. If you are a novice at removing broken fasteners I suggest you take it to a professional. For those weekend warriors that have a devil may care attitude and the proper tools ie. broken bolt extractor kit, start by accessing the situation are we dealing with fresh meat that broke because of Gorilla tightening tactics or trying to remove a fastener that was installed when Teradactels ruled the sky and centuries of graft-corruption-rust have moved in.
FRESH MEAT
1. For fasteners that broke and left a nub to grab on to use vice grips or pliers to extract the remaining threads.
2. For fasteners that broke off flush with the surface metal, use a die grinder with a 2" sanding disc to smooth out any imperfections flush with the surface metal, center punch a dot in the middle of the broken fastener get out your broken thread extractor kit, choose the appropriate drill bit and tool and proceed to remove the remaining threads.
3. For fasteners that broke off below the surface metal, you will need to select a drill bit that fits in the hole and drill out any imperfections on top of the fastener so its surface has concave finish conducive for a center punch divot that will allow the extractor drill bit to drill out the center meat of the broken fastener without walking.
TERADACTAL AGED FASTENERS
The same above steps apply except for special preparation before extraction is attempted.
1. If the broken fastener is in an area that heat is not going to melt any nearby plastic or rubber, then I suggest using a propane torch to heat up the fastener and the surrounding area in a circular motion for 1 minute. For step 1 above use a hammer to smack the protruding nub moderately hard like you were pounding a nail then proceed with the extraction process.
2. For areas that using heat is not an option then spray a liberal amount penetrating-rust removing oil on top of the fastener wait for 5 minutes for the oil to penetrate and do its job, then do the hammer smacking abuse.

Hi, Kristen external oil deposits fall into 3 categories:
1. WEEPAGE is oil that is sweated pass gaskets, seals, o-rings, and crankcase seams, it's covered by dry dust and is normal for older engines with lots of miles, no repair is necessary.
2. SEEPAGE is the same as weepage except the deposit is wet and confines itself to a specific area, repair is optional depending on the owner's cleanliness criteria, the deposit location and the weight of his bag of "DRACHMA"
3. LEAKAGE is the same as seepage except it is enough to drop to the ground leaving a spot. Repair as necessary.
To find the source of your oil leak, start at the point where you see oil and trace its path going up and forward, blowing baby powder from the palm of your hand will help in those difficult to see areas if there is too much oil present then buy a spray can of engine degreaser apply it to the affected area then rinse off with a pressure wand or garden hose, use compressed air to blow off excess water or just let it drip dry, take your bike for a 15 minute ride and check for the leak.

hi you would be better off upgrading to lockheed or girling brake hoses
they are slightly smaller bore than the standard
and improve braking by a hell of a lot
you can also get them made in what ever size you want

Hi, Anonymous the vast majority of service, parts fiche, and owners manuals on the internet are "FREE" to download and all service manuals contain wiring diagrams in the back pages. The rest usually charge a modest fee of $15 and there is a handful of obscure, rare, obsolete, and very old models that are no longer or never were available and some were never printed in English. The Indian and Philippine markets are usually in E-book format only, for these rare occasions I shall look on eBay and find the cheapest one available. Most of the manuals will cover your exact make, model, and year otherwise one will be provided that comes as close as possible to your bike and will have most of the same info that an exact manual would have. If there is no $ sign after the manual link it is free to download.
