Question about 1990 Suzuki GSX-R 750 L
Hi, I just resprayed my bike and cleaned it with a high pressure cleaner, now the bike refuses to start, I suspect that the fuel is not coming through, there is spark on the plugs, what else can I look at thanx
The slingshot does NOT have a fuel pump. It is gravity feed through a petcock. Make sure that the petcock is set to the ON position. Its under the tank on the side.
If your bike has K&N filters on the carbs make sure you cover them with a plastic back before you wash next time.plus you will have to wash them and re-oil them before you put them back on. Dont use super high pressure washer to wash your bike. A garden hose will do.
If it has the stock air filter you might have gotten water into the carboration system with that high pressure washer you used. You'll need to disassemble the airfilter unit and either remove your carbs to take off the float bowls and get the water out or try to drain your float bowls while the carbs are still on the bike. Siphon out all the old gas if you think you got water in it or you will have to do this all over again. Sounds like you intoduce water into the system to me.
1. Got good gas?
2. Got spark?
3. Got oxygen?
4. Got rid of water in the system? = Should start.
I use to own a sling shot too. 1988 model red and white.

If you have a spark ,remove fuel pipe from bottom of carb , if fuel is present then the problem may be blocked carbs (common after a respray ). if fuel is not present the n the filter will be blocked in the fuel tap just remove and clean hope this helps
