You must have some free play in the cable or you will damage clutch. Why won't rod lock in correctly? Did you have cover off?

While it is possible there is bad battery connections or a relay your description is typical of a discharged battery or likely a battery with a bad cell.

Remove and charge the battery and hope that is the end of your problem but if it isn't, replace the battery.

best way to tune this is to reshape the inlet port from a circle to a wedge shape as it has a rotary valve and put a decent expansion chamber on it.

have some one do the work

Motor oil turns white/beige when it becomes emulsified with water or coolant. While the presence of emulsion can indicate an internal coolant leak or careless topping up the oil level, the nature of modern anti-pollution positive crankcase breather systems draws cool damp air into the hot engine. Some such systems aren't well designed and are prone to creating "mayonnaise", especially in the cooler, damper months.

most likely the crankcase breather valve is not working properly.

One simple way to put the correct amount of oil in the forks is >>>with the fork caps removed and the spacers and fork springs removed from the forks, compress the fork all the down, then fill it 6 inches from the top. You can use a turkey baster (marked and measured) to remove the un-wanted oil if you overfill it.

A variety of possible issues here. Bad plugs dirty carbs or timing chain is stretched and timing is off.

Hi, Scott_towers for this scenario you will need your service manual that has all fastener torque specs and a wiring diagram on the back pages, parts fiche, and owners manual if you can't find the best tool you ever bought for your Suzuki, despair not, for a mere zero $0 you can download another one.

Hi, Anonymous before testing any electrical component in the Charging System it is "IMPERATIVE" that you have a fully charged battery of 12.5 volts or more and be able to pass a proper "LOAD" test if necessary, you may have a preliminary reading of 12.5 volts or more but little or zero amperage, the battery is faulty and must be replaced. AGM type batteries fall into this scenario more so than lead-acid batteries.
1. Check battery terminals for damage or corrosion, check the battery cables at "BOTH" ends for loose, corroded, or broken connectors, "INSIDE" and outside the cable harness, perform connector wiggle test and check cables with an ohmmeter if necessary.
2. To check the regulator unplug it from the stator. Take a test light and clip it to the negative terminal of the battery and then touch first one pin and then the other on the plug that goes to the regulator. If you get even the slightest amount of light from the test light the regulator is toast.
To do this with a meter: black lead to battery ground, red lead to each pin on the plug, start with the voltage scale higher than 12vdc and move voltage scale down in steps for each pin. Any voltage is a bad regulator.
3. On the other part of the disconnected regulator plug. Set the multimeter for Ohms x1 scale and measure for resistance across the pins of the stator. You should read something around 0.1 to 0.2 ohms for a 32 amp system.
4. Then check for continuity between each pin on the plug and frame/engine ground. The meter needle should not move (infinite resistance)(digitals will show infinite resistance) if the meter needle does move (indicating continuity)(digitals will show some resistance), recheck very carefully. If the meter still shows continuity to ground the stator is shorted (bad).
5. Set the meter to read A/C volts higher than 30 volts (the scale setting for voltage should always be higher than the highest voltage you expect or you may fry the meter). Start the bike, and measure from one pin to the other on the plug (DO NOT cross the multimeter probes! - touch them to each other). You should read roughly 16-20 vac per 1,000 rpm.
6. If the battery was good under load test, if the stator is NOT shorted to ground, and the stator is putting out A/C voltage, then the regulator is bad (most likely even if passed step 2)
