Question about 1985 Suzuki GSX 550 ES
Im in the middle of restoring my 1985 gxs550es got the engine and electrics all plumbed back in but it only runs on cylinders 3 and 4 there is a spark on 1 and 2 so it can only be a fueling problem but i cant seem to locate it and or fix it and im stuck in a rut without anything i can think of doing to fix the prob.
Any help would be greatly appreciated,
many thanks richard.
Hi m8,,just to give u some things to check b4 i give yuh some more tips,, 1st, thing had your bike been stood 4 a while if so it would have been on its side stand at some point so 1 and 2 carb would have contaminated fuel in, work on those two carbs and make sure they have clean jets and float bowl,,while your in the carbs have a look at the diaphrams on top of the carb,, gently take one out and hold the diaphram up to the light to see if it has any pin holes,,, if there isnt then happy dayz,, it sounds more like fuel thats gone off in side the float bowl and blocked up your jet,, take the jet out,, and poke a pin in the holes ,try that mate,,
