Question about 1999 Suzuki GSX 600 F (Katana)
Have rebuilt the carburater,will crank up ,run about 5 to 15 minutes,then cuts off.after it is hot,want start back up,it is a 2 stroke suzuki motor,wondering if it is the carb or piston and rings.it is a suzuki ds 80 dirt bike
The air screw and throttle screw are NEVER supposed to be tightened up at all. Doing this can damage the seat. Only screw the air screw and throttle screw in until they LIGHTLY seat. Now turn each adjuster one and one half turns outward. Chances are you will need to replace the adjuster screws to get the bike to idle properly. Yeah, the ends look okay but that little ring indentation where the screw was tightened down matters a lot. If re-setting the screws fixes the problem you should consider yourself lucky.

Tips for a great answer:
I,v got one as well 2 things can cause that, petrol or spark,check to see if the float is set right height and needle and seat aren't blocked and only letting a tiny amount of fuel threw you should pull carb apart and give it agood blow out with compressed air and clean the jets I think there are 2 if remembered if its starting,normally its a fuel problem could be tank tap halved booked as well normal on bikes been sitting awhile then after that get anew spark plug sometimes they start breaking down when get hot 9 times out of ten that's your problem any way try that it should work good luck
