Question about Suzuki Motorcycles
I just brought a old suzuki ts 125 78-79 model not a 100% as the dude I got it of only told me it was a suzuki had to find out for me self. Anyway it only starts sometimes if I put fuel down were the spark plug goes, it's got spark the carby has been cleaned twice the tank has been drained and cleaned( possible stail fuel) checked wires and all that to check for anything loose but all seems normal. Is there anything I could be missing for why it won't run. Would be good for a confirmation on the make of the bike as well.
Hi, Suzuki and the usual suspects are:
1. Fuel cap or fuel tank is not venting properly.
2. Fuel filter clogged.
3. Fuel line pinched or kinked.
4. Vacuum line from the petcock to intake manifold cracked.
5. Float needle and seat sticking.
6. Float level too low.
7. Carburetor bowl vent line clogged/blocked/pinched.
8. Idle adjusting screw set too low.
9. Air/fuel mixture screw set too lean.
10. Idle port, transfer ports, slow air jet clogged.
11. Slow fuel jet clogged.
12. Faulty fuel pump.

DEPENDS IF YOU HAVE SPARK OR NOT,IF NO SPARK IT COULD BE YOUR STATOR/ IGNITION, HAS TO HAVE SPARK TO FIRE THIS IS WHERE I WOULD START FIRST

have you a spark?sounds like ouyr float level is too high and the carbs are flooding,try to decrease the float level,she will not start with too much gas

Hi, the standar for the air/gas screw is 1 & 1/2 turn out from total screw in. Start from there and then you only need minor adjustments. As for the 5 min ride and then nothing, check you fuel suply, start with the buoy level inside the carb.
