Question about 1998 Suzuki GSX-R 750 W

1 Answer

Too much fuel in engine

Last thursday i washed my bike (08 gsxr 750 w/ about 8k miles regularly maintained) cranked it and drove it back in the garage where it sat until sunday while i was away... its sat before for a few days without issues but this time when i got home and went to start it it didn't crank... its got a strong smell of fuel when you try to crank it which makes me think there's just way too much fuel in the engine... i checked my PC and it was working fine checked the air intake system to make sure it wasn't the right amount of fuel just no air and it looked fine but i don't trust myself enough to rule it out... aside from that it just makes that god awful cranking noise with very limited response from the engine... limited meaning i've gotten it to crank / rev twice for under 1 sec each time... any ideas? driving a bronco around is killing the bank...

My first thought is that something is wet, which is possible since you just washed it. However you said it sat for a couple of days...... I doubt that it is to much fuel in the engine, you have strong spark?

XV1100 Starter does not engage when trinig to start engin


sorry didn't actually see the post before my first comment, if it is only when the bike is warm or hot but not over heated I would suspect the same thing, faulty starter. "replace or rebuild"

No problem. i have a chance to buy a 2007 600 gsxr with 2500 miles in what appears to be emaculate condition for 4000.00. i wanted to find out if there are any major flaws that will make this bike come...


The biggest difference is that the 2007 GSXR 600 has fuel injection instead of carbs. The FI symbol will alert you that the sensors on the Fuel Injection system have found a problem. When that happens, a dealer will be needed to hook up a code reader to see what the problem is. A dirty air filter is something you can fix. A fuel mapping problem is for the dealer to fix. Minor FI problems still let the bike run. Major problems shut down the fuel system so the engine will not even start. Other than that, just be sure the bike shifts smooth and easy and that all electrics and brakes work properly. How old is the battery? How much life is left in the chain? Does the clutch operate properly? How soon before new tires will be needed? I hope this helps. Please rate my answer.

My 2003 suzuki gsxr won't star has been sitting in the garage for three months without starting it cranks over pretty good, did I choke the engine with too much gas trying to start it?


Hi from Spain,

no way to choke this fuel injected bike in theory....but by my experience try to start the bike with fully open throttle several times, take care do not flat the battery, if the bike has not much fuel do not try with the bike on the side stand so the fuel cannot reach the fuel pump inlet.

BR,

Emilio.

K5 gixxer 1000 tends to cut out untill engine warms up. sometimes when engine has been running awhile to. its just had major service but this has not cured prob.


Clean or replace air filter..then if the doesn't do it, go to Autozone and purchase a can of Sea Foam fuel treatment and pour in 1/3 can to 2 gallons of fuel, purchase or clean up your fuel filter and then dump out the fuel in it, now pour some Sea Foam into the filter and then start it up. if it doesnt start up, then push start it, and get on it and go! Ride for about 10-15 miles on and open highway where you can get on it occasionally to let the stuff work its way through the fuel system. If this did not fix it, then check all your vacuum lines, spray around the carb areas and lines with some carb spray, if the rpm increases ..then theres your problem. Can you rate this! thanks
