99 suzuki katana 600 exhaust issue startup problem.. help..??

Hey Folks!
I've recently acquired a '99 Suzuki Katana 600, which I'm totally loving being on.. however, there's couple of things which do makes me a bit uncomfortable, and I can't help thinking of fixing them somehow..
just fyi.. I've recently got the Jets changed (replaced a new kit) with the fuel flowing richer than usual..
Now, for starters, I'm facing ignition / startup problems in the morning.. although it's cold here, but still it takes quite a while, and after starting the first time, the rpm gets lower and lower and ultimately the engine stops.. (even using choke)
Then comes the part where I have to throttle it a bit to start, and it gives out quite some smoke too..
Soon after it's up, I still get the engine cutting off on me at certain points, as if the exhaust is choked.. there's quite a lot of backfire pops from the exhaust.. and that continues for the whole time I ride it afterwards..

So, I hope you've got the scenario, and can guide me in the right direction.. :)

Thanks in advance..

J.

Hi and welcome to FixYa,

Initially, pls re-check how the carbs were installed back with particular emphasis on:

  • the rubber coupling carb/manifold & the clamps;
  • the air box, how it is seated to the carb;
  • the air filter;
  • the vacuum hoses, carb balancer ports;
  • sorry to bring this up, could it be overjet?
Good luck and Thank you for using FixYa. Happy Holidays.

Hey guys, is the 2000 GSX 600 Katana liquid or air cooled? I"ve been seeing air/oil cooled...if thats true, what does that mean? Thanks.


if it is air/oil cooled then the wind blowing on it wen your driving cools it. also the oil while circulating through the engine cools the engine.
