SOURCE: my suzuki katana some body move the screws in the carburators

hi,this might help,it is very difficult to get the adjustments right without a set of carb balance gauges,the adjustments are very small and critical to the running of the bike,borrow or buy a set of gauges,hook up the gauges,balance the left two cylinders together so they are both running exactly the same,then do the two right cylinders and get them both running the same,then match the two sets  together using the balance screw between no2 and no3 cylinders,a general rule of thumb to get a startng point is to wind the mixture screws in untill they stop,then back them out about 1.5 turns,do the same to all four screws before you start trying to balance the carbs,make sure the bike is sitting vertical or on the centre stand because if it is not it will effect the balance of the carbs and also make sure you have a good airflow over the front of the motor for cooling as it will take half to three quarter of an hour to get the balance right...most bikes need the carbs rebalanced on a regular basis because when the parts of the carbs start to wear the balance will change,a good set of carb balance gauges is a worthwhile investment...hope this helps

SOURCE: air screws 600 katana how many turns?

Back the screw out a quarter of an inch. That is your starting point. After you do that with the bike running slowly back the screw out until it starts running good, then keep turning it until it starts to run bad again then stop and turn it back in 1/4 of an inch and you should have your optimal setting.

SOURCE: problems with 2001 w\EFI feul\air mixture off

Check your coolant temperature sensor it will be faulty, so it is giving the ecu a code that the engine is cold when it is warm so keeps running at a rich mixture.
Let me know if you want more information.

The bike idles up and down on its own

That usually indicates an air leak between the carbs and cylinder head. Hardened rubber fittings, caps and "O" rings are the usual source. Clean the air filter and clean the carbs while inspecting the manifold rubber parts. tombones49_189.gif

I am put a K&N air filter on my 2000 Suzuki Katana 600 (carburetors) it lags a bit when accelerating? I was told I should put a larger Jet pilot? #12.5 is the stock one in.I am having troubles finding...

Your bike came in at 80 HP, the 99 year model had 86 HP you can check and see if that year had a larger pilot jet. you are running leaner because of increased air flow. Excellent in you can get more fuel with it. You should be able to go up to the next size and cure your problem. Your Pilot Jet is 75% cruise Mixture and 25% idle mixture. Rule of thumb....
If you go 1 size larger or smaller on the size of the pilot jet, you will change the fuel screw ~1.5x richer or leaner to retain the original idle mixture - Dennis Kirk 6am to Midnight Central: 1-800-969-7501 tell them what you want. You can go online and search also, many items are not listed though. You will find a bucket load of jets on their site. Happy Hunting.

My 1998 suzuki katana turns on and stays on the it turns off plus sometimes while its running it throws what looks like a mixture of oil and gas threw one of the lines that comes from air filter

I guess you need a new ignition switch to cure your turning off problem, the pipe from air filter is probably the crankcase breather that vents pressure from engine in to air box, this will contain some oil mist

Gsxf 600 fork seals are leaking

Get a manual as you will be in over your head if you haven't done one before, and it will have all the steps in there to do it. There are a bunch of parts in the lower leg of the fork. If you want a better set up then you have, I would look at replacing them with some 89-97 model forks as they are adjustable, and our 88 models are not.

Idle speed problems

Hi Walker14,

You have to sync thecarbs and also you will have to reset the air-fuel mixture screws.
One of the carburators should be factory adjusted, I dont wn a kawasaki but I own a YAMAHA SECA XJ750R and thro it I am sharing my experince.
Once you have located the factory preadjusted carburator you can thn set the others to its specs. I use the feeler gauge to do for my bikes carburators and it works fine.
With regards to the mixture screw..... get the all in tightened but slowly aas to not damage the pin end of it!.
Start the bike and get it to normal running temp and thn set the screws 2 and half turns may need to set your idling speed before you begin this setting of the mixture screws, you prolly will hveto go higher on revs or vicecersa ....onc eyou are at the mixture screws and adjusting them , you will surely note the differenc ein sound of he bike an its idling ..
Hope this will help.
