Today The Suzuki DR600 Died.

Discussion in 'Technical and Troubleshooting Torque' started by beery, Apr 22, 2006.

  1. Today after 4 months and alot of work to get the roadworthy i took the 1988 Suzuki DR600 out for a ride with a mate of mine and it was all going well then when i was slowing down to take a corner going from 3rd to 2nd gear it stops no warning. When i tried to start it again i got nothing i pushed the kicker down and it was not getting any compession. We are searching for a answer our thought is the exhaust valve seals. Does anyone here have any thought on what else could cause this problem and im thinking of droping the motor of a early DR650 in but im unsure if it would be a straight bolt in job or possible.

    Any help would be welcome

  2. It could be a lot of things.

    Check you are getting spark at the plug (pull it out and earth it on the bike somewhere and kick it over) and fuel in the carbie ( losen the drian plug in the bottom of the bowl.

    After that you will be much wiser.

    I used to have a GSX250 that used to drop a wire of the back to the key barrel. I'd stop dead for no reason. Had me buggered the first time, but I knew from then on why all was quiet in the middle of the night.
