Hi,
I have a 80 suzuki 550e. It will run for 10 miles and die. It has gas in the bowls when it dies. could it be cdi or coil failures. after setting for 30 minutes it will start back up.

I'm not a bike tech but the systems work the same way.
It could be the CDI. you'll have to test for spark during the failure. Coils usually fail differently. They will usually drop off under load and come back when you back off the throttle.

If the problem happens to be a stuck float needle, is that a hard fix? Maybe you should take it into a shop, on the other hand you would prefer to do it yourself... something to be proud of....thanks...
