Check for a spark at night by disconnecting the plug boot and watch to see if it's a good blue spark that jumps to ground... any piece of metal on your bike... just let the boot dangle and watch as you turn it over. If you don't have a good spark, then you need to check the high tension circuit... electronic ignition, spark plugs, wires. If you have a spark, then it's a fuel supply issue. Carb and fuel lines... fuel filter.

SOURCE: need help to connect fuel lines 82 suzuki gs 750

the solution is very simple
there are 2 nipples underneath the petrol tank
the upper nippel should be conected to the venturi nipple because this on opens the valve (can try by light sucking on it)
the second ore lower nippel should be conected to the carbs there is a conection in the middle of the four carb's
please be sur you use fresh petrol and clean the carbs (using compressed air)

when you try without cleaning filter it wil run but not wen you open the trottle (it's because of the vacuum carb's they need the veturi that is placed in the air filter compartment)

lots of suc 6

SOURCE: Engine filling up with gas

gsxr's are known for this problem, you left the petlock on run which will seep petrol through your rings, on the on position no fuel escapes because you need a vacuum to start the fuel moving

SOURCE: Engine filling up with gas

the guy is right! I have had the same problem with my dr750 flooding the crankcase with FUEL!, have used two sets of carbs on it now, both with same result! fuel/oil mix in the crank which when run streams up the breather into the air box! weird one as the bike ran fine for a week with both sets of carbs before doing this. I have tried so many things but am still baffled!

SOURCE: Suzuki TS125R (1994 model), not TS185: Trouble starting

It sounds like the air/fuel mixture setting is not correct i dont know the setting for a ts125 but you can always go to and buy a service manual for that bike and it will tell you all the correct settings for the carb.

Car will not start like its not catching fire , i have a 2008 suzuki xl7

old post. but will answer.
the starter only cranks the engine, that is it's only job.
if it cranks robustly (at crank shaft pulley ,see it) then its ok.
250 RPM is typical cranking speed. RPM
no starts are complex.
for any engine Gas, to start you needs 4 things.
  1. ALL FUSE TO EFI GOOD, TEST THEM. CEL glows key on?
  2. full engine compression and crank vacuum 5" HG or more.?>??
  3. Spark , try a fresh tune up with fresh spark plugs. all 6 sparking.?
  4. Fueling , must be right. not flooding , not starving
if spark and engine are good, all engines(most) will start with test fuel.
This one simple test. proves the engine is ok, and spark is ok.
and the fuel system is dead.
these checks , will let is work the 4 systems. that might fail.
this is the classic basics path.
and works 99.% of the time.

exceptions, are clogged melted cat.
or stuck wide open EGR
or ISC stuck closed, (no starting air.) use 10% throttle to prove that.
or flooding, if flooding use super secret unflood mode (opr guide)
hold the throttle (right foot) pedal to the floor, this cuts fueling
and the flooded engine starts, for full time or runs and floods and stalls again.
This is called basics , in all ASE books in print.

plug wires!? They go bad over time, but may still look ok from outside ... get an ohm meter and pull a wire and check ... more than 500 ohms per foot is no good..... Good high quality wires will be no more than 150 ohms per foot.

2003 Chevy S10 won't start

Are you sure its the starter? did you try it in neutral? could be park neutral switch, or ignition switch, or if its a standard shift maybe it has a switch on clutch that it has to be depressed to start and its bad. As far as jump starting you cross the maine or big post on starter to small or little post on starter to do that, on a v6 starter it on the right side under exhaust manafold, and i think its on the same side on a 4 cyl.

Car running problem

Ok Slow deceleration rev responce was part of the ECU software to keep the emissions down ,however if this has only just started you can try to reset the IAC valve ,the procedure is as follows.

Turn ignition key on ,unplug the IAC valve ,turn the key off ,replug the IAC valve. do this 3-4 times .Then start the engine while holding the gas pedal to 2000 rpm ,then slowley let the go of the gas pedal till the engine idles .

The IAC valve is located on the throtle body and has 4 wires to it.

Sometimes the throtle body needs to be cleaned and then reset.
