HOW DO I PERFORM THIS...HAVE SOME NOISE COMING FROM SIDE COVER...JUST GOT THE BIKE, AND IT IS A GREAT RIDE WITH 17000MLS ON IT... RUN GOOD BUT JUST THIS LITTLE NOISE...CANT HEAR IT GOING DOWN THE ROAD BUT THAT COULD BE BECAUSE OF WIND NOISE AND NORMAL NOISES BLOCKING IT. COULD USE SOME HELP. HAVE EXPERIENCE ON BIKE REPAIR BUT NOT THIS MODEL... THANKS @
Hi, Jcodini57 for this scenario you will need your service manual that has all fastener torque specs and a wiring diagram on the back pages, parts fiche, and owners manual if you can't find the best tool you ever bought for your Suzuki, despair not, for a mere zero $0 you can download another one.

Well, without physically hearing the noise it's a bit of a guessing game. However based on your description and past experience (all of which is from my past life as an auto tech of 23 years) it sounds to me like it may be a fuel problem, probably lean; generally a spark related misfire will occur more under load than steady state and a rich fuel condition will typically lead to bogging, while a lean condition is likely to cause misfires. I don't know if your bike is fuel injected or carbureted but judging by the vintage I'd guess it was carbureted. I'll assume that the engine runs fine under full load acceleration. You may have a carburetion problem (do you have single or multi carbs?) possibly a weak fuel pump although that would tend to show up more under heavy load than steady cruise or even over advanced timing causing detonation. I'm not sure of the specific systems on your bike so I can't offer any advice on how to check timing or examine the carb(s), but I can offer general procedures that may be helpful. Assuming again that you have carbs and a manual choke system, you could try putting a little choke on when the problem occurs to see if the problem goes away, if so this would prove the theory that the engine is running lean. One other thing I would do is to look at the plugs that came out of it (hopefully you saved and numbered them) and then pull the new ones back out and examine and compare them. Perhaps you could take some good pics and post them for us to look at and offer opinions on their condition and cause? Can you duplicate the problem in neutral? Is it only occuring at one particular road or engine speed or any steady speed? Does ambient temperature have any effect?

Hi and welcome to FixYa,
Your description indicates an electrical malfunction. Offhand, the jump start and charging is significant. This points to the bike's battery not charging. Suspects would be:

Could be your spark plugs, or maybe your side stand as some bikes if not all of them now have a switch on the side stand which prevents the rider from starting the bike if the stand is extended. So if the spring which retracts the stand is slightly lose, it pulls on the switch and cuts off power. Im not an expert but just check these.
Could also be that your carbs are dirty. So just give them a bit of a service and check for any blockages in there.

sounds like maybe valves were shimmed too tight,check service manual for clearances...better a little loose than too tight,can cause alot of damage to cam & head,be careful!!

If you went to a less restrictive exhaust and didnt rejet and the bike is popping its running to lean. Need to rejet the carbs when you open up the exhaust.
