Question about 1999 Suzuki GSX-R 600
So I have a 1999 Suzuki GSXR 600. I have had the motor replaced, carbs are clean, gas tank replaced and some more stuff done...too much to even say. After getting the bike back it ran one good time. At this point, it will not stay running. I had the battery checked and it was good. I even took the battery and put it my 750 bike and it started up with no issues. When trying to start it sounds like the battery is dying. I'm planning on taking it back to the shop. But I wanted some ideas on what could be causing it not to stay crunk.
Hi, Sharon my gut tells me you may have a faulty battery ground cable connection to the frame or engine case or your starter relay, starter solenoid, starter motor are being given last rites for this scenario you will need your service/owners manual if you can't find the first and best tool you ever bought for your Suzuki, despair not, for a mere zero $0 you can download another one.

Clean the air filter and, if you have one, remove the water trap bowl on the fuel petcock and clean it. How good is the battery? Install new STOCK plugs. Bear in mind it may be time for carb kits. Other than your cleaning the carbs, the carb kits and balancing and synchronizing of the carbs are best left for the shop to do.
Check the exhaust pipes. If there is a restriction in the burned gases exiting the tailpipe then the bike will not run right, will loose power and even die if too much back pressure builds up. Disconnect the exhaust system and tick off the neighbors with a quick ride around the block without a muffler. If the engine still dies then exhaust is not likely to be the problem.
Check the compression on all cylinders. Depending on the compression, the bike may be ready for a valve job. If you pull the head for the valve job then you might as well consider re-boring the cylinders and install new pistons and rings. Bear in mind, doing a valve job and / or pistons is not recommended for the novice. The good part is that when the work is finished you will effectively have a new engine.

carbs need a good cleaning. had this same problem with an 82 GS1100. cleaned the tank as best i could, you can never get all the rust tho. finally had an idea to place a couple of old car speaker magnets on the outside bottom of the tank to catch any residual rust. been 4 years now with no more problem.

I have been having a simular problem with my girlfriends bike.She complained about the bike looseing power or "bucking " as she calls it , at speed.Several "shops" have played around with it ,but none have solved the problem .She feels the bike is not worth spending any more money on ,so I have tackled it .
The first thing I found was that someone had put the wrong hose on the pet ****. To open the pet **** you need vaccum from the cylinder side of the carb. There are two other hose nipples on the filter side of the carb that I don't know where they go .If you know , please tell me .The vaccum helped but didn't solve the problem.So I took the carb apart , cleaned out all the jets . One was pluged.
Now I have to run the bike a little,then check the spark plug. I think I am getting close.

200° is quite warm...
If the engine wont turn over, probabily you have a bad battery, a bad starter or a bad starter relay, or bad connections.
A hot engine has more compression. If the full battery power doesn't reach the starter it won't turn over...
