Question about 2001 Suzuki GSX 600 F (Katana)
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.

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
