  2. '95 GS500 has mechanics stumped

    New Member Pitstop
    So, my Suzuki GS500E cut out as if it wasn't getting fuel all of a sudden when I was riding on the freeway, with only a little warning with the bike reducing power slightly then going back to normal at the start of the ride. It wont start at all now, I can't get any signs of fuel getting into...
  3. GS500F clutch issues

    Mechanics Corner
    I bought my first bike a week ago (yay!). It's in pretty solid condition, but I do have some clutch-related issues with it. If the bike is in gear, and the clutch lever is all the way in, the bike still pulls forward slightly. This is regardless of if it was just started or if it has been ridden...

  7. 2009 GS500f low idle/stalling/wont start

    Mechanics Corner
    This is my first post. I bought my first motorcycle about 2-3 weeks ago. A 2009 GS500 with 3600 miles on it. The bike was about 160 miles away. Rather than put it on a trailer I decided to ride it home. It rode great. No problems no complaints. I then went away for a few days and let it sit...
  8. Stalling when stopping GS500F

    Mechanics Corner
    This problem is really frustrating, when i downshift to stop coming to an intersection the bike dies every signal time. Sometimes even while I'm coasting i'd hold down the clutch and the engine would die. what i've done, emptied the tank of the old fuel it stood with and burned off the rest...
