Re: New to board, some questions...
The plugs were fouled in storage. The previous owner had some unreliable people store it in an a/c controlled place, and they fouled both the plugs to my bike, and his other Suzuki. They had been in storage for two months. He told me that they could have laid it down the wrong way and that the gas could have fouled the plug that way, or that possibly the condensation from the cold a/c could have ruined the gas. When I try to start it will rumble for 2 seconds and then pop off. After that first intial try, it will combust slightly when it ignites, but you can just smell the gasoline flooding into the cylinder. It really reeks. We thought it could have been the power commander, so we by passed it. Still the same result. Then we found out his Suzuki was doing it as well. He's a mech. engineer for Harley, and my old neighbor, which is the only reason I would trust him as a seller. I've seen him baby this bike since it was new.
Thanks, I wasn't too sure if the valves would be that bad after only 16,000 miles.
Thanks for the speedy reply.
