Hi, Anonymous if your bike has been sitting idle for months or years and you did not do any pre-storage maintenance I feel your pain it will probably have a dead battery and not want to start or if it starts it will not idle unless the choke is full on and run poorly then stall, here are the following steps necessary to complete in order to get your bike back to an acceptable running condition and in the future pour in a bottle of fuel stabilizer and injector cleaner for you FI folks at least 2 times a year and before storage.
1. If your battery was 2-3 years old when you last had the bike running you should replace it.
2. If you believe your battery might still be serviceable remove it from the bike and put it on a 1 or 2 amp trickle charger for 24 hours. If it is the old lead acid type with visible cells and acid levels fill each cell to the top line with distilled water and replace the caps, run the vent tube into a plastic or styrofoam cup, any cells that are cloudy/milky replace the battery.
3. After charging remove the leads and let the battery sit for a couple of hours then check the battery voltage with a volt meter, you should have 12.5 volts or more, any readings in the 11 volt range you need to do a proper "LOAD" test on the battery and replace as necessary, you may have 12.5 volts or better but little or zero amps, any readings in the 10 volt range you have a dead cell and the battery needs to be replaced.
4. Drain and flush fuel tank if it rusty there is a cheap and easy fix. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fUYr_7SwGms
5. Remove and inspect your air cleaner paper elements that are not oil soaked can be cleaned with a soft brush and low pressure compressed air, oil soaked elements must be replaced. Gause mesh and foam elements can be cleaned by soaking them in a container big enough to completely cover them with a solution of 1 gallon of water and 1 oz. of Dawn dishwashing liquid for small and medium size elements, for monster size double the formula and let soak for at least one hour then rinse with warm water shake off excess and let air dry, "WARNING" do not use compressed air as this will embed micro-sized dirt and road grime and destroy the mesh pattern and stretch foam elements out of shape just squeeze it like a sponge and let air dry, use a fan if you're in a hurry. When completely dry spray a very fine mist of air filter oil evenly around the whole element.
6. Remove the carburetors, disassemble and decontaminate with a "CARB DIP" or if you have EFI remove injectors and clean with carb spray and compressed air
7. Check intake manifold and seals for leaks and cracks.
8. Remove fuel valve and filter disassemble and clean as necessary, remove, clean, and inspect fuel and vacuum lines and replace as necessary.
9. Replace spark plugs with new ones and check for spark.

Hi and welcome to FixYa,

A couple of ideas you may want to consider when starting a bike that has not run for some time:

  • drain the carbs - there are drain screws at the very bottom of each carb for this purpose. Of course best would be to rebuilt the carbs or at least, disassemble and clean;
  • of course change to a fully charge battery;
  • remove the sparkplugs, get a clean dry sprayer similar to those used with plants;
  • fill the sprayer with some 2T oil, used for 2 stroke engines;
  • spray the inside of each cylinder through the empty sparkplug hole at least one spray. if the sparkplug holes are rather deep, you can use a short length of a hose;
  • test crank the engine with no plugs. this is to exercise the parts inside and evenly spread the sprayed 2T oil around the piston and rings;
  • ensure drain screws are closed, fill your tank open fuel valve. On most Suzuki, there are 3 positions, ON, RES and PRI. On the initial start pls use the PRI. The fuel will flow. The other two would require vacuum to open the valve.
  • confirm that fuel has entered the bowls of the carbs by opening the drain screw just to check;
  • in some instances, there would be an overflow on the very first filling of the carbs.
Other than the above a few more but these would initially be of help for the moment.

Would appreciate an update, curious myself.

Good luck and Thank you for using FixYa. Happy New Year.

There should be an idle adjustment located behind one of the side fairings, its usually a black dial mounted to the case somewhere low.

Take the carburetors apart and either rebuild them or clean them thoroughly.

Posted on Jun 19, 2009

SOURCE: I bought a 1985 GS 550 LF. It had been sitting

Gas pouring out of the carbs means the float pin are not sealing in thus the over flow.
Go a little down thn .77in , best would be to bench set them.
Take a pipe say from the tank to the feed pipe of the carbs (best would be to remove the tank and place it higher on your work bench to get the gravity flow to the feed pipe of the carbs)
Allow the flow to the carbs and monitor the over flow, see which carbs over flow, remove the float bowl and reset the float and let it go a little less thn .77in, refit the bowl and retry the feed in and recheck..you will come to a point where gas wont over flow, open the bowl and see the level of the gas , it should be covering the jets, but remember that since you will have the float bowl out the gas will show low as when its submersed, the jet stem in the float bowl pushes the gas level up so dont get mixed up when you see the level low , i am sure you will be able to judge it for yourself.
I had the same problem in myYamaha(seca) XJ750R !981and finally managed to win over the problem going over it the way I explained.
Hope this helps! Good luck.

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.

Electrical won't be your biggest problem. Pull the carbs off and start crying now. 5 years of sitting killed them dead. Carb rebuilding or replacement, gas tank sealing, new battery, tank lock repair, oil change, spark plugs, rotted tires replacement (yes they are) and the electric issues will be or exceed your sanity level and value of bike. Sell bike now get a newer one that runs. You'll thank me later.

It wont stay running in stalls out from time to time


Change the fuel filter,clean the carb jets again,and replace the air filter.This should take care of it but sometimes when they sit for awhile,you will need to clean the carbs numerous time as the gunk in the tank continues to wash down into the carbs.
