Hi all, This is actually leading on from a tangent in another thread so I thought I would post it in the right thread and get some more responses and opinions. I bought a 71 Suzuki T500 on the weekend. Great, well restored bike with only 1000ks on the rebuilt engine. Only issue is it is really, really tough to start and cuts out every now and then - usually at low revs or idle. At first I thought it was the plugs - either the wrong ones fitted or too much carbon building up on them (its a 2 stroke). But it does indeed have the correct plugs and I have limited the oil intake (to the amount indicated in the manuel) to no avail. Would anyone know whats going on? My suspicions are the battery, which is new brand new. Anyone else had any issues like this before? Thanks!
