Hey everyone, I picked up a 1988 Suzuki Katana recently for $150, clean title on non-op. Was thinking about parting it out but it's almost complete so it seems a shame to dump the parts onto eBay. It was a former track bike and everything has been safety wired which is neat. Right now the plan is to get it going under it's own power for minimal $ and enjoy it for a bit. I wanted a project to expand my mechanic skills on and this seems to be the perfect one. How it sits - it's missing a lot of hardware for the fairings. I'll probably clean/zip tie fix the fairings but otherwise they won't get replaced. First thing I did was remove all the fairings. I have a piece of cardboard I have been cataloging the bolts although I may need to get a full bolt kit in the future as what is there is pretty motly and most everything is missing. There are some neat bits including an old school Ohlins shock. I removed the airbox which was surpringly easy...I've never attempted a project this complex before. I'm used to dirt bikes which tend to be very cramped. The airbox wasn't attached to the carbs so I assume I need to get some hose clamps to hold it in place. Sprayed down the choke linkage which was seized with PB Blaster and it started sliding nicely again. Sprayed the bolts on the top of the carbs, opened one up and everything looked surprisingly clean inside. Huh. I figured at this point I might try and get it to crank. Hooked up my XR650L battery, clicked the engine on switch and...nothing. Hooked up a multimeter to the whole mess and when I click the starter switch there is no drop in voltage either. Checked up and cleaned up the ground off the battery and it was fine. Checked the starter switch and...bingo. Fraying wire and cut wire. Might be why this ol' girl was sitting. It looks like there are 3 wires coming off the starter switch on one side and four wires have been bypassed it seems (assuming clutch and side stand safety switches). There's lots of extra length on the wire, any way I can pop open the connector, feed in some new wire and get it buttoned up again?I tried getting the female pin to pop out with a paperclip but no luck. Any trick to these things? Also not sure what the 3rd length of wire (which seems to be missing) is for but I'm working on my wiring diagram skills but if anyone knows, feel free to let me know!
