Question about 1979 Suzuki Gs 550 L

1 Answer

My clutch cable to my 1979 suzuki gs 550e snapped and didnt know if it was a fairly simple fix or if it was something that would require a mechanic. Oh, and the person before me has stripped 3 of the screws to take the cover to the clutch off. Any suggestoins would be much appreciated.

Easy fix to fit a new clutch cable,make sure you leave the old cable in place until the new one is in place, this way you know the route you have taken is the same as the old one was fitted,
Dont know in respect of the securing screws when you say they have been stripped, do you mean the screw heads no longer suitable for a screwdriver or wrench? If so this can be easily removed using a drill to remove the heads of the screws, first using a sharp 3mm drill bit after centrepunching the screw head. Drill into the screw about 2mm deeper than the head of the screw, then using a 6.5-7 mm drill bit again drill the pre drilled hole untill the head of the screw comes off, some care is required to make sure you accuratly mark and drill as straight as possible. If you mean that the screw threads in the engine crankcase have been stripped then you will have to have the threads repaired using a helicoil repaire kit, once the cover is removed remove the cable nipple from the clutch acuating worm, you may have to carefully bend over the securing tag before the nipple is removed,and caerfully bend it back, after fitting the new cable, Obtain yourself some new fixing screws of the correct length and (WARNING) no longer. Replace the cover, grease the nipple at the bar end, then fit the cable
take out any free play with the addjusting screw leaving about 4 mm free play

Try shorting out the 2 10mm nuts on the starter relay (has the lead from the battery and starter going to it) if the the engine turns over chech the relay or safety switches. It will flash so make sure the is no open fuel. If nothing happens try tapping the starter motor l(lightly) then try it. If this works the brushes in the starter are worn out..Dont keep on doing it as you will burn the comutator in the starter..Brushes are cheap.

Hi,
It sounds like you have a blocked main jet in the #1 carb. Unscrew the bolt at the bottom which is the fuel bowl an see if any fuel comes out. If it don't then your needle on the fuel inlet seat maybe jammed.
You will have to dismantle it and clean it out..Hope this helps, let me know how you get on.
