I have a 2006 Suzuki GS500F the bike ran fine and started fine for 2 weeks after i bought it used, and it started fine all day until the bike wouldn't even try to start. I thought the battery was dead so i...


Hi, I would still suspect the battery. Lights and ignition do not really draw much current neither does the bike when running.. Your battery goes almost flat when the starter is engaged lots of amps are required. Try this check: remove the battery (undo negative lead first please) then connect a high wattage bulb across the terminals see how long it takes for the bulb to dim. If the bulb is still bright after an hour re charge the battery (please use a dedicated bike charger max output 1 amp). Re-fit the battery (connect positive lead first please). If bike still does not start check starter solenoid is activating it should click when you press the start button. Hope this helps.

I left the bike in my garage and now it wont start, what could i do?


hi friend,
Step 112230_65x95_aspect.jpg
Move switch to ON position
Locate your dirt bikes OFF/ON, RUN/OFF, or START Switch. Use your finger to move the switch to the RUN, ON, or START position.
  • Step 212233_65x95_aspect.jpg Turn fuel switch ONLook on the side of your dirt bike near the engine and locate the "FUEL ON/OFF" switch. Use your finger to move the lever to the "ON" position. Your dirt bike will not start if the fuel is turned off. This off switch helps prevent fuel leaks when your dirt bike is stored.
  • Step 312234_65x95_aspect.jpg Turn choke ONIf your dirt bike engine isn’t warm, you will need to turn the choke on to start the bike. Locate the choke lever near the engine on the side of your dirt bike, probably not far from the "FUEL ON/OFF" switch. Use your finger to move the choke lever to the on position. Once your dirt bike has started and the engine has warmed up, you will need to move the choke lever to the "off" position.
  • Step 412236_65x95_aspect.jpg Foot on kick start pegBend your knee and place your foot on the kick start peg while leaning your weight on your other foot. Stand slightly and push the kick starter all the way down with as much force as you can.
  • Step 512239_65x95_aspect.jpg Push all the way downIf the bike doesn't start after the first attempt to kick start it, try again. Remember to push the peg as far down as it will go with as much of your weight as possible.
  • jQuery('.article ol .image').each(function(i,e){ var $this = jQuery(this); $this.find('img').error(function(){ jQuery(this).remove(); $this.remove(); }); }); Tips & Warnings
    • If your dirt bike has a four-stroke compression engine and won't start, release the compression valve and try starting it again.
    • Sometimes, the engine remains in a compressed position and cannot turnover until the pressure is released.
    • If your dirt bike is equipped with an electric-starter, but won't start, you can follow these steps and kick start it.
    • Remember: always wear safety equipment when operating a dirt bike or ATV.
    • You should at least wear a helmet, boots that cover your ankles, and a chest protector to avoid serious injury.
    • Always supervise children when operating motor vehicles.

    My headlight will turn off shortly after starting the bike and won't turnm back on..Tested wires and not getting power..Then 2 days later husband started bike and headlight turned on, but shuts off...


    Hi, Laura_hunt_c if your headlight is not working, keeps burning out, blinking, or is dim the first thing you need to check is the headlight bulb for damaged filaments then check your light circuit fuse, that being said the usual suspects are:
    1. Faulty ground or power supply wire to headlight bulb socket.
    2. Worn, chaffed, or broken wires in the light circuit.
    3. Corroded, broken, or loose pins/sockets in wire connectors.
    4. Faulty hi/lo beam switch.
    5. Faulty ignition switch.
    6. Fuse is good but no continuity on both sides.
    7. Faulty wiring between battery positive and headlight bulb socket.
    8. Weak charging alternator/generator.
    9. Faulty voltage regulator/rectifier, overcharging.
