Question about Suzuki Motorcycles

1 Answer

1982 suzuki gsx 250 will start but it wont idle so i gave the carbie a clean and blew all the jets with compressed air to no avail. Also will run for around couple of minutes before it comes to a slow death (will lose power until it stalls). sometimes there is smoke from around the engine. There is an oil leak from under the engine somewhere. Does anyone know is this the oil strainer being clogged or restricted or have another idea. thanks for your help

Look at the carb again - the idle jet is small hole at the base of the throat - just in front of the closed butterfly valve - you may have to soak it in cleaner again - dont try to clean it with a wire -- or if you can get a small straw -try blowing into the orifice - if you find resistance - it is still plugged - wash the bike down and clean the oil off the engine - run it and watch for weeping or leaking - you may just have a loose part

SOURCE: Engine loses power

Had a similar thing on mine and it was the leads breaking down. Bought new leads and plug tops. Probably need to go to an independent motorcycle spares shop should be able to help you. Check the plug type - if they are too cold they might be coking up. The higher the number the colder they are. Standard spark plugs are CR8EK. If you have CR9EK they are too cold. It's fiddly and awkward trying to sort out these problems. Otherwise it is a great bike!

SOURCE: 1982 suzuki gsx 250 not revving over 5000rpm

usually when surging like that happens there is a vacuum leak where the carbs are attached to the heads check the rubber rings that hold the carbs on to see if they are cracked if so then replace them and that should solve your problem

Hi hoeygatt

Look around your bike near where the throttle cable meets the engine, when you pull the throttle, the cable pulls a quarter circle piece of metal which is connected to a spring, then connected to that should be a screw, that is the idle screw, turn it very slightly, usually clockwise to make the idle higher, and this should sort out the problem.

Please remember to rate this solution as FixYa!

SOURCE: 2004 rmz 250 wont kickstart, but will push-start

Kick starting is sensitive to fresh fuel. Tank should be completely drained

1989 Suzuki GSX 750 F that won't idle below 3000 rpm


Hi, Suzuki #5 is jumping up and down waving the Suzuki flag screaming "pick me pick me" and the usual suspects are:
1. Throttle cables improperly adjusted, pinched or need lubrication.
2. Idle adjusting screw needs to be backed off.
4. Air fuel mixture adjusted too lean start with 2 full turns.
5. Intake system air leak, check intake boots with propane
6. Fast idle choke ramp is not releasing.
7. Broken throttle return spring.
8. Damaged diaphragm or slide.
9. Faulty MAP, TPS, ATS, O2, sensors or wiring/connector.
10. Multiple carburetors not in sync.

I need air mix settings for a 1996 zzr 250 kawasaki


it sounds like your low speed idle jets are still cloged as they are very small openings you may need to soak them in thinners then use a air compresser to blow them out ,and see if you can see through them ,i have found a steel guitar string the smallest can fit some of them hope it works cheers

Bike is actually a GSXR 1100 93 model, running perfect one day not the next, has plety of spark has fuel, fuel running through smell it coming from exhaust. All leads and fuses are good. Wont fire wont...


I would have a look at the condition of air filter and air intake manifolds for obstructions, the carby jets for scum build up and floatbowl levels for eveness and for air leaks on intake manifolds to the heads. Are the header pipes heating evenly when first warming up and do the same pressures exit all exhausts. Have you got good even compression.
The link below has all the sections of your bike in exploded view form with parts named and numbered.
Goodluck, cheers!

I need a detailed diagram of the carbs for my 1981 GSX 1100. The one in the Haynes manual I have is not very detailed.


Google babbitts sports center.com then click on buy oem parts and then select your specific bike. A parts diagram will come up, change the page from 'air cleaner' to 'carburetor' on the drop down menu and you can see your carb assembly. Hope this helps...

If its been sitting for a while or run through a lot of water or water in the fuel, try draining the carby 1st by lossening the 17mm drain plug at the bottom of the carby.
if its full of water and or gunk you should remove it and clean.

With patience you can remove the main and pilot jets to clean them..The Pilot sounds more like the problem.....If you have to get the carby off remove the rear (seat) frame lower bolts loosen the top bolt rear ex pipe and swing the frame up watch out for the wires then remove the carby...

Try removing the jets 1st...it can be a pain but its much easier.

Yzf 250 wont run without the choke


Hi mikelapt
You will have a carby problem. When the choke is one, and different fuel circuit is used. When you turn off the choke, you go back to the idle circuit of the carb is used, when under throttle, main jets kick in. You probably have a blockage in one of these circuits. Strip the carb down, clean with carby cleaner, blow out all air circuits and jets with compressed air, then setup the idle mixture and tick over speed. Always work with fresh fuel, and drain off, discard any fuel older than a couple of months. It goes off, and turns to a gel  like substance that blocks up your carby. Hope this has explained your problem. Happy to talk to you more about it. A FixYa vote is a great reward for for my time taken to explain this to you. Cheers
