Question about 2001 Suzuki GSX 600 F (Katana)

1 Answer

Air filter/housing, being flooded by fuel/oil mixture

On my 2001 suzuki katana gsx600f my air filter is being flooded with a fuel and oil mixture through the breather hose connected to the top of the air filter housing....i took apart the carburetors and cleaned the floats and needles and all that, and put it back together in exact same way, but still have the same problem.....anyone have a solution? They said over $200 just to rebuild the carburetor seperate from the bike, and i dont have the money right now....

Hi, Bgeneblues07 and the usual suspects are:
1. Oil tank over filled always check your oil level with the engine at normal operating temperature, then try running it halfway between the low and full marks or if you have no dipstick 8 ounces less than recommended or a 1-inch air pocket in the oil tank.
2. Clogged, pinched, bent, or loose breather line/pipe. If your lines run into the air filter try routing them into a tee fitting and then a single line that goes towards the ground into a mini filter that is secured by a zip tie to a lower frame rail.
3. The piston rings are worn passed specifications which can be confirmed by a proper leak down test "OR" the rings were never properly seated during the initial break-in procedure and need to be replaced, this is caused by being too gentle on a new engine. Proper break-in procedures are in your owners manual.

As far as the breather to the top of the engine goes, just pull off the hose and replace it with a small breather filter and you are good to go. Sorry, but can't help with your vaccum diagram.

SOURCE: oil and fuel leaking out air filter housing, won't stay running

gasket not possible the thing it could be is floats on a carb is too low so it is filling with fuel and leaking out off carb back through the air filter the way to test for this is to clean the airfilter and just leave the bike for a couple day then go see if the air filters is wet again get back to me once done

I have a 2001 Suzuki GSX600f Katana that's having a problem when the throttle is applied, it seems to climb slowly and come down slowly. I know one carb has a vacuum leak is that the source of the problem?


Hi, Riley "ABSOLUTELY" and the usual suspects are:
1. Extremely lean fuel mixture.
2. Dirt, rust, water, or ethanol sludge in the fuel system.
3. Sticky throttle cables.
4. Multiple carburetors not in synchronization.
5. TPS sensor out of adjustment or faulty.
6. Wrong spark plugs for the type of service.
7. Throttle bodies not in synchronization (FI)
8. Faulty O2 sensor.
9. Clogged, stuck, or faulty IAC valve.
10. Aftermarket components not compatible with ECM.

What problems could an old air filter cause? And how could I clean it instead of buying new one?


It will cause the engine to run rich ie too much fuel in the mixture as it creates a negative air pressure in the carbs venturing and pull more fuel up the jets.so make sure it's clean you can clean it with petrol and compressed air but be careful as it can go all fluffy.

Small amount of gas in rear air filter compartment.Changed out old degraded foam air filters for new K&N Filters


The carbs spit back a little fuel normally and sometimes they'll flood over and stop flooding as the engine shakes but the air filter should dry off as the motor runs. or the gas is real old? Does the bike run OK?

My 1998 suzuki katana turns on and stays on the it turns off plus sometimes while its running it throws what looks like a mixture of oil and gas threw one of the lines that comes from air filter


I guess you need a new ignition switch to cure your turning off problem, the pipe from air filter is probably the crankcase breather that vents pressure from engine in to air box, this will contain some oil mist
