Suzuki Burgman 650

Hi Guys,
I just bought a Burgman 650 2002, which will need a bit of work. I would like to know how different it is from the 2003 model. I will post a few pics of it soon.
Best Regards
Luis

Re: Suzuki Burgman 650

Luis, The UK and other Countrys got the first year in 2002 but for the USA and Canada we got 2003 as our first year. There was a member fron OZ that has ridden his 02 alround the world, Farquartforever was his name on here but Gary has not posted in MANY MANY months. He could answer most of your questions. Others may jump in here soon.

I would just follow all the 03 problems guide lines of Wheel bearings and Ignition wiring recalls if they have not been done. The 03 had a clutch oil problem too. Good luck and ride safe. Just remember that these bikes have a strong "Engine Braking" that is almost like dropping down two gears and letting the clutch out. the bike will slow down real fast and that Lorry tail-gating behind you will not see any brake lights and squish you flat. Best to get in a habit of applying the brake lever just enough to put the rear brakelights on.

Re: Suzuki Burgman 650

Hi Luis - you are clearly the sort of Guy that needs a project!

The 2002/3/4 are all very similar.

What needs work perxactly?

Depending on what the previous owner(s) did or did not do during thier period of tenure and current mileage.

There were a couple of recalls on the early Burger, probably the most important being the ignition switch.

Other matters for consideration are the 'dieselling noise', wheel bearings and CVT stopper bolt.

We could meet up for a chat sometime - I have family in the Reading/Basingstoke area - alternatively its a nice twisty ride to my gaff!

Re: Suzuki Burgman 650

Hi Guys,
Thanks for the replies, Norman I may just take you up on the offer I will get the 400 back on the road and will let you know.
According to the shop I bought the 650 from it as been stored in a warehouse for at least a year and it came in with a transmission problem, but the engine was running perfectly. this was an Ebay purchase and as the battery on it was dead I could not test it, but when I got home I managed to turn it with a small battery and I can see that compression seems to be there. I have now got a proper battery for it and I am ready to test it. The problem is the oil level, the glass sight on the engine is dirty and I can not see the oil level. I have put in a bit of oil in ( around 1.8l) but I can not see it. on the parts list there is an oil level bolt on the engine(on the clutch cover) and I was wandering what was is function. Can I just take it out and when the oil reaches that hole it will be at the right level?
I just need to test the bike to see if the engine is running and then I can start the refurb knowing that at least the engine is OK. I will obviously still go in to check valve clearances and such.
Any help welcomed.
Best Regards
Luis

Re: Suzuki Burgman 650

I would change all the fluids, to be sure everything is correct. It sounds like the engine oil is too full.



The overflow hole is used in the transmission and final drive

Hi Jim,
Thanks, that makes everything clear. I will just drain the oil and fill up again.
Best Regards

Re: Suzuki Burgman 650

Hi Guys,
Just managed to start the engine and it seems to run very well, no smoke or funny noises although it as what, after reading some of the posts here, is probably the "Dieseling noise" due to the primary shaft adapter being damaged. that probably explains the lack of drive to the wheel.
At least with the Engine running is one less thing to fix
Best Regards
Luis

Luis, This does not sound like a Primary adapter problem. It does sound like a CVT belt failure and could have been caused by a failed "Stopper Bolt". Please pull the bolt out and look at it. Look at these to see what I'm talking about:

and

I do hope your CVT is not wonkie as its a spendy fix. Please let us know.

Re: Suzuki Burgman 650

Hi,
I just had a look at the prices for the CVT they are expensive... Just the belt is 427.
Hope the belt is OK or I will have to end up selling the bike for parts.

Luis
