    My Gixxer SF seems to have a problem riding in rains.
    The rev drops for a few seconds then becomes normal and this cycle keeps repeating over and over. Similarly it's difficult to start the motorcycle if it's raining. In dry conditions, it performs beautifully, no issues.
    What can be the issue?
    Motorcycle is serviced properly.
    Could the spark plug be the issue? (Plug was changed recently, March 2020).
    Thank you.

    Congratulations on the new tyre. Hope you have a good time on it. Do let me know if your tyre develops a weird wear just like mine did.
    Is Amazon trustworthy, local tyre dealer told me they sell old stocks and isn't the best place to buy a new tyre as you may face several problems including used tyres.
    What's your opinion on this?

    Thanks bro. I got a fresh stock of tyre (September 2020). Tyre seems to be brand new. The seller helped me in registering the warranty. Regarding online purchase of tyre,there might or might not be risk buying from sellers in amazon. It's better to buy a tyre from a seller with replacement policy, which in my case is 10 days.
    Regarding the weird wear, let me observe the wear for some time and report the same.
    Also I have a query, do you experience a whistle sound while riding at low speeds at the time when the tyre was changed.? I hear that sound. Is it normal?

    Im going through the same exact issue, ive changed the spark plug too.

    The overflow hole in the gas tank is clogged up most of the times due to rust.

    Once was stuck on a solo ride on village roads whit no help , tride kick starting for 20mins before it started back again.

    I am suspecting carborator issue, which is causing loss of compression in the engine.
    Im Totally worried to take the bike for any short long rides now.

    Gixxer community pls assist here

    It has been more than a year now since the tyre has been changed, but if my memory serves me right I don't remember any such whistling sound. Do keep me updated on the wear. Really looking forward to see if it replicates.




    If both of us are facing the issue due to the same fault, I doubt the carburettor could be the reason, because mine is FI.

    Can someone please help?

    Hi Alphamike,

    Im here at the Dolphin suzuki service center,Andheri,Mumbai.

    Got the service done, replaced spark plug to a new original suzuki plug, also replaced the spark plug cap, which as per the svc was causing short.

    Also did carb cleaning and found out internal spring of the carbs to be rusted, the mechanic suggested to change entire carb assembly (Rs.5k approx) which i currently think is a bs idea.

    Lets see if this spark plug cap resolves the problem of not starting randomly.

    One more thing: the 4 screws which hold the handle bar in place rusted easily and their replacement takes 20 days on order request only.

    Keep us posted sandsbhatre.
    Haven't faced a problem of rusting yet, but my motorcycle is usually in a covered parking area most of the time. Hopefully the spark plug cap replacement must solve the issue.

    Update: The sparkplug cap replacement seems to have resolved the issue.

    1)Now looking at new set of tyres and thinking of Ceat zoom rad and zoom plus.
    Anyone with a review for these?

    2)Rear wheel bearing faulty, wheel wobbles few mm sideways. Svc will take 25 days for part on order.
