    Re: GS500F 2008 burning oil and trembling

    Get your friend (who had the GS) to ride it, see what he thinks before bringing it to a mechanic. Perhaps it's just you being new?

    Re: GS500F 2008 burning oil and trembling

    Was the bike on the center stand (double stand), off for 10 minutes, when your friend checked the oil level and also when you checked it again.

    Do it yourself. That way you know for sure.

    Re: 2002 Suzuki TL1000R shuts down :S

    Did your bike shutoff on you while it was in dealer mode though? If not, try to keep it in dealer mode until it does, then see if a different code appears.

    Re: 2002 Suzuki TL1000R shuts down :S

    When the bike's ignition is turned off the code is reset. Can you keep it in dealer mode, and see if there is a code thrown when the bike shuts off?

    Bike is idling at 1200 rpm?

    Re: Mechanic recommandaton

    There is one fault in your "documentation".
    Do not have the car/truck running when jump starting.

    Other than that, I prefer your "Motorcycle Batteries For Dummies" version :)

    Did you try this?

    Turn it so that it idles at 1250-1350 rpm at running temperature. Then report your findings.

    Is there a name/make on the side of the exhaust? Take a picture of the exhaust and post it.



    Remember to adjust the idle speed and see if it gets better.
