Its funny you should mention this but yes, I had its bigger brother the GS 850 G , same problem, Apparently, in my situation I did the same thing and went to the shop and let those butchers make it worse !!!, the way i found my leak was by washing the motor with a grease and oil cleaner , strayed the whole motor and wash it all off totally, then I turn her on and let her get to operating temp went for a few mile and came back and checked it, for me it was the head gasket the guys put on and i forced them to do it again,
I found out later that it was common with the suzi's of that model and ended up doing it myself, I used the original gasket and used a compound called gasket goo and it never leaked through out the 8 years i had it .
But before you do anything , surly they gave you warrant y on the work so take it back and demand they do it properly.
Cheers and ride safe

Turn the petcock valve off and the flow should stop. If the fuel line is long enough, cut the broken line just above the break then re-attach to the nipple.

It may be ok , but many bikes flood when sitting over night and fill the sump with fuel. if the carb float doesnt quite seal.
Not sure about epa , I think it shouldnt be a problem unless carb overflows and drips on the ground, during the inspection.

SOURCE: I just purchased an 86
did a Suzuki 550 carburetor over haul 10 years ago and had 3 of the 4
intake manifolds crack or separate. I would start by closely inspecting
the manifolds. Have you tried draining a carburetor bowl to see if it is
full of gas? If the vacuum line to the fuel petcock is not hooked up
correctly you could just have fuel starvation. You can hold a spark plug
to a cylinder head and turn the motor over to see if you have spark.
Correct amount of fuel, correct amount of air, and spark is what you
I just gave that answer to some one else. The fact is I had to remove and clean my carbs 4 times . Each time I did it, I got one more carb to idle. The last carb to work for me was the vacuum nipple carb. By the time I was done I had to replace all four manifolds they had all separated or cracked. To get my carburetors working I turned them upside down and shot through them with carburetor cleaner in the morning before work and in the evening after work. The reason it wont idle is the carburetor passageways are still plugged in the slow circuit. Carburetor cleaner , air pressure, and in my case time to get the blockage out of the bodies. When I was done it ran great.
