Broke My Suzuki Gn250

Postby johnL on Tue 7/Dec/10 3:49pm

When to start the bike the other day and in turned over weakly (Battery was down a bit) Put the jumpers off the car (it is 12v) Now the starter dont turn at all. There is no Click from relay, I think I have fried that. Lights all still work.
Just read on Interweb OK to jump off a car, but dont start the car!!!! now they tell me.

so would it be the relay that gone bad?

Tap the starter motor gently with a hammer maybe, could just be a jammed gear?

Or remove and clean neutral sensor and side stand kill switch sensor. Squirting a bit of contact cleaner in the relay and tapping that with a hammer might just free it up if it isn't fried.

Failing that, 2nd/3rd gear push start...

Yeah, not fair....I just don't like them. I did actually ride one once when a mate and I swapped bikes. Both were 250's he could not believe the power difference.....nor could I :p
They're actually really good, very cheap bikes that are excellent for learners and you just need to hold an oily rag about 40 foot away and they'll go for another hundred miles! The truth is that they're probably one of the best bikes ever built, but that doesn't stop them from sucking generally. :)
