To replace the head gasket disconnect the battery, remove the tank, remove the rocker cover. Manually turn the crank shaft until the engine is on top dead center compression stroke and the lines on the cam shaft gears are even with the top of the cylinder head. At that point evenly loosen the bolts that hold the cam shaft. Do one cam shaft at a time. Before you remove the second cam shaft tie a piece of wire to the cam chain then let the chain fall into the hole after removing the second cam. Loosen the carburator mounts and slide the carburators back so they are free of the engine. Now you can evenly loosen the head bolts and then remove the head. Check the head and cylinder for signs of warping or why the gasket needs to be changed. When you replace the head gasket make sure the gasket fits over the guide pins. Reassembly is essentially reverse of the disassembly. After you get the head torqued to specs, you will be glad you fought that wire attached to the cam chain when you start to install the cams. Make sure each cam goes back from where you took it from and the lines line up like they were before you took them out. Don't forget to install a new gasket on the rocker box.

I have a 2004 Suzuki LS650 that won't start. Battery says it's charged . Has new spark plug. Gas is good. When I go to start it it does not start, and then the battery is low again.


You say the gas is good? do you mean fresh in the tank? Try draining the card floatbowl using the 10 mm headed bolt on the very bottom of carb. If you smell a foul odor there is varnish buildup in the carb which will require a complete fuel system/ carb cleaning to fix.
