  2. 2001 GS500 Stall issue

    After riding the bike for roughly 30-40 min on the highway, I got off the exit and stopped at a few stoplights. After the 3rd stoplight, I accelerated to roughly 50/60 mph. Once I hit 50/60, my bike started lose RPM and then they'd pick up again. Then after a few seconds it would do it again...

    First Bike / New Rider
    As stated I'm new all around. I just got my first bike about a month and a half ago. I love it! It's a 2005 Suzuki GS500f. Like in the title though, I do have a problem though. A few weeks ago, I was riding home from work and the bike starts to sputter then stalls. I've only been riding about...
