    General Motorcycle Discussion
    I just bought a 1977 Suzuki GS750 the other day and I was able to get it started up if I jump start it. The whole fuel system is looking great but for some reason my bike isn't wanting to rev up or give me much power. I found out that if I keep the jumper cables connected to the bike battery and...

    I have a 82 GS1100GL with 45,000 km. I replaced the stator and rectifier on it but still doesn't seem to be charging and the only power getting to the igniter is from the battery so when the bike runs it only runs for a short period then shuts off because the battery is drained.
