View Full Version : Bike help!

Workin on my first bike, got a 96 Suzuki that me and my bro are chopping out. This is my first bike and I'm stumped. The bike had been starting fine. Then over the past couple of days it just won't turn over. It acts like it's going to but then the battery dies. Now jumping it won't kick it over. It's sounds like it wants to. I took the battery out and charges it but still the same problem.
Anyone know which direction I should go to try and get it going?

Charge then load test the batt. Most shops and auto parts shops will test for free. Charge it up at home first.
Then you gotta check your wiring, relays and solenoid.
Sometimes starters and/or starter clutches fail.
Once started check your charging system.

Sky nailed it. Battery might take a charge, but not carry a load. Double check the battery is good.

96 Suzuki what?

It's an intruder. I'll start checking these out. Thanks for the feed back.
