Question about 2000 Suzuki GSX 600 F (Katana)
My bike has a mind of its own. Sometimes it runs ok, sometimes not. When the chokes on it actually runs its best, although it idles between 3k and 4k rpm's. With choke off it usually idles below 1k until it dies. Tonight when i came off the clutch it bogged the rpm's down real low and then all the sudden it just kicked in and took off. When I give it just a bit of throttle in like second it kind of sputters in and out like its getting spurts of gas. I tore it down to the carbs and cleaned them and then just put about a half a can of sea foam in the gas tank. Lemme know if you can help me out
Hi m8,, just a couple things,, wen u stripped the carbs down and cleaned them,, did u take the main jets and cold start jets,ie the jet that the needle in the carb sits in,, and poke the dirt out with a pin,, so u can see threw all the holes wen held to the light, u have a blockage still in the carbs,, undo bottoms of carbs take the main jet and the needle jet out ,,and clean ,, make sure your airbox is sealed down on the carbs and jubilee clips are tight,,,1 at a time pull off the spark plug cap and pull off the cap from its ht wire and snip a little bit off the end so u can see copper or brass stranded wire then screw cap back on ,do that to all 4 caps, do these checks ,the bike will run good, ,, look more in2 the carbs tho ,, its almost certain u have a bloked jet still
