    did you ever figure out what was wrong? i have the same bike with the same problem. tried the spray trick with no luck. battery and everything has full power, has gas, it will occasionally fire (but not start) but mostly just keeps turning over? does this sound like your prolem?

Take one of the plugs out and hold it against the head while the engine cranks. You should get decent spark. If not, you have an ignition problem. If it gets decent spark, try spraying some starting fluid into the air cleaner box. If the engine starts up and runs for a couple seconds, you have a fuel delivery problem.

I have a 2000 katana 600 i was riding the bike and it just died down and now it wont start it has been sitting up for three months i just cleaned the carbs and it wont start it turns over but wont start...

Hi, Jon and the usual suspects are:
1. Fuel tank empty.
2. Fuel supply valve/petcock turned off.
3. Fouled spark plugs.
4. Engine flooded as a result of overuse of the enricher.
5. Vacuum hose to the fuel supply valve/petcock disconnected, broken, cracked, or pinched.
6. Fuel valve/petcock or filter clogged.
7. Fuel line to carburetor or throttle body pinched or kinked.
8. Carburetor float stuck.
9. Fuel injectors clogged.
10. Severely discharged or damaged battery, you need 12.5 volts or better and be able to pass a load test if necessary.
11. Check battery terminals for damage or corrosion, check the battery cables at "BOTH" ends for loose, corroded, or broken connectors, "INSIDE" and outside the cable harness, perform connector wiggle test and check cables with an ohmmeter if necessary.
12. Loose or corroded wire connection at the coil, battery or plug between ignition sensor and CDI box.
Spark plug cables in bad condition and shorting check for leakage in the dark, cable connections loose, or connected to the wrong cylinders.
13. Ignition timing incorrect due to a faulty MAP, CKP, O2, TPS, sensors.
14. Faulty neutral, clutch lever, or kickstand safety switch.
15. Faulty fuel pump or fuse or relay.
16. Faulty CDI box.
17. A stuck bent or burnt valve.
18. Tip over sensor needs a reset.
19. Check for engine trouble codes.

What position on the petcock is on off or res on a 93 katana gsx600f

There is no OFF, you have RES toward front , ON is all the way down, and prime toward back, PRI is used when it has been sitting for awhile. RES and ON wont let gas out unless bike is runnig. There is a vac hose on back of petcock that lets ON and RES work it must be connected..

Just bought my first bike: 1995 Suzuki 600 Katana. Heres the problem: its been sitting for 7 years. Emptied gas tank, cleaned carb but is flooding. Put new battery in it and air filter is dirty but not...

When you cleaned the carb, did you get the needle valve put back in correctly? That is the small pointed valve that is actuated by the float. As gas flows into the carb it raises the float and the needle valve rises to shut off the gas flow. You should have put compressed air through the hole that the needle valve goes in. There is a removable jet that the needle valve tip goes into to shut off the gas. Remove a spark plug after trying to start it. If the plug is very wet it means the carb is flooding, and if it is dry it means the motor is getting no gas. If the plug is dry you can take off the air cleaner boot and pour a tablespoon of gas into the carb opening, then quickly try to start it. If it starts momentarily you know you just need to work on the carb. You also could remove a plug, put a teaspoon of gas into the cylinder, replace the plug and try to start it, to see if you get a pop or two. Put some Seafoam in the gas to help clean the carb. Make sure you use compressed air to clean out all the small passages in the carb. An owners manual would tell you exactly how to adjust the float level, but I think you can assume it's okay if you didn't do anything to it. Generally the gas shuts off when the float rises until it's about level. When you take off the bowl of the carb, before removing the carb from the bike, there should be gas in the bowl, but it shouldn't be overflowing.......somewhere around half full. Also, are you getting good compression? If that bike has a kick-starter it would be easy to determine if the compression is okay. If there is not much resistance to the kick-starter, or pushing the bike in high gear, the compression is bad and valves may be stuck or burned. Let me know how your project is going.

( 93 cbr600f2 was crashed and rebuilt seems to have hot spark but wont start smells like its flooding Made just a couple gurgle sounds out of the pipe then a small backfire where do i start fire carbs...

sound like it's flooded over. i have one of these bikes for a stunt bike and had a similar problem before. use a fully charged jump box. connected it to your battery and hold the start button. don't use choke or give it any gas either. it mike take about 5-15 minutes to start, but it will.

My 05 gsxr wont start

Check for spark first of all. If no spark, is the kill switch on? Is the side stand up? It should be up when starting. Is the bike in neutral? Check the fuses.

If spark is present, is the gas turned on? How clean is the air filter?
If the bike still will not start go ahead and drain the carbs. If your bike has a water trap bowl behind the gas valve then remove the bowl, clean and reinstall it.

Doing this should get you back on the road.
Please rate this solution. Thanks!
