    Hi, suzuki made the GS650 katana from 81 to 83 they were designated GX, GZ,amd MD. The latter was only for the U.S market. I am rebuilding an GZ at the mo, when I originally started it up the coils were knackered, so I replaced them with dynacoil high performance ignition coils and it seems to have done trick.

There are two possible causes. 1> one of the floats are sticking. Tap (gently) on the carb bodies to see if it stops. 2> The fuel petcock, which is vacuum operated when the engine runs, has gone bad. this will cause fuel to continue to flow when the engine is off.
