Your best bet is to go to a Suzuki shop and get one there. That way you know for sure you have the right battery and that it will fit your bike.

Sound like it's time to get the carbs looked at.
It wouuld seem your float is bad, stuck, or not properly adjusted,; thus causing too much fuel to enter the cylnder

It could be a stuck choke, but it could be a stuck carb float, or needle valve. You may want to pull the carb bowl off and check and clean.
Once you get the bowl off, you can use a can of spray carb cleaner to spray the needle valve (gas inlet to carb), and inside the bowl, any jets and around the choke. Also check your air cleaner.
While you're at it, pull the spark plugs, and check to see how they look. I would clean them with carb cleaner, make sure there's clean metal at the electrode and replace any that look questionable.

Testimonial: "Thanks This is indeed what I was thinking to do, the sparkplug looks dark thus to much fuel"
Hello bragg, sounds like you either have a vacuum leak and/or a fuel delivery problem. If you can plug the plugs and check the condition it will help to determine which cylinder and carb is causing the problem. The pilot jet may be clogged, causing you to have use the choke. If the spark plug is a greyish or light brown color, that would indicate a lean fuel mixture. Black would be rich and fouling. Also check for vacuum leaks around the carb mounts...let me know what you find.
I hope this helps.
