I have a 2000 katana 600 i was riding the bike and it just died down and now it wont start it has been sitting up for three months i just cleaned the carbs and it wont start it turns over but wont start...

Hi, Jon and the usual suspects are:
1. Fuel tank empty.
2. Fuel supply valve/petcock turned off.
3. Fouled spark plugs.
4. Engine flooded as a result of overuse of the enricher.
5. Vacuum hose to the fuel supply valve/petcock disconnected, broken, cracked, or pinched.
6. Fuel valve/petcock or filter clogged.
7. Fuel line to carburetor or throttle body pinched or kinked.
8. Carburetor float stuck.
9. Fuel injectors clogged.
10. Severely discharged or damaged battery, you need 12.5 volts or better and be able to pass a load test if necessary.
11. Check battery terminals for damage or corrosion, check the battery cables at "BOTH" ends for loose, corroded, or broken connectors, "INSIDE" and outside the cable harness, perform connector wiggle test and check cables with an ohmmeter if necessary.
12. Loose or corroded wire connection at the coil, battery or plug between ignition sensor and CDI box.
Spark plug cables in bad condition and shorting check for leakage in the dark, cable connections loose, or connected to the wrong cylinders.
13. Ignition timing incorrect due to a faulty MAP, CKP, O2, TPS, sensors.
14. Faulty neutral, clutch lever, or kickstand safety switch.
15. Faulty fuel pump or fuse or relay.
16. Faulty CDI box.
17. A stuck bent or burnt valve.
18. Tip over sensor needs a reset.
19. Check for engine trouble codes.

99 Polaris 500 xc sp flooding, cleaned carbs and checked floats and main jets. reinstall carbs and run. next day fill gas tank approx. 12 gallons. next morning motor completely flooding gas tank lost

it sounds like it is still you needle and seats are worn or your float has a hole in it just check the float and see if it has fuel inside it ,but i say a new set of needle and seats and bowl gaskets cheers

Bike floods its self constantly, i drain the carb bowls, it starts then floods after not even 1 minute of running....

The fuel is probably flooding due to trash in carb, remove the fuel bowl,clean float needle,clean jet and the orfaces in it.(if dirt is in it clean the rest of the fuel system to keep it from happening again.) Spray cleaner does good.

Srad 600 2000 x plate wont start some times

it sounds to me that there is a lose connection inside the cdu, you will need to replace it,any suzuki dealer will sell you a new one, for your model. a newer model will probably do the trick, but will cost you more. parts for s.rad suziki's are still easy to get hold of. if your local dealer is a bit pricey ,then try e-bay, there are plenty of s.rad bits on there.

( 93 cbr600f2 was crashed and rebuilt seems to have hot spark but wont start smells like its flooding Made just a couple gurgle sounds out of the pipe then a small backfire where do i start fire carbs...

sound like it's flooded over. i have one of these bikes for a stunt bike and had a similar problem before. use a fully charged jump box. connected it to your battery and hold the start button. don't use choke or give it any gas either. it mike take about 5-15 minutes to start, but it will.

93 katana 600 wont start

Take one of the plugs out and hold it against the head while the engine cranks. You should get decent spark. If not, you have an ignition problem. If it gets decent spark, try spraying some starting fluid into the air cleaner box. If the engine starts up and runs for a couple seconds, you have a fuel delivery problem.
