Question about 1993 Suzuki GSX 750 F (Katana)
93 gsx750f...Engine gets hot, banging sound in motor gets louder, and eventually stalls. Will continue to run, while driving, until come to light etc, then it stalls (and sometimes won't restart til cool)
Now I figure its a cooling problem, been doing some research and its Oil/air cooled. Oil has been changed numerous times in the last 3 years. Now what can I do to narrow down my problem? gunna take it to the local carwash and high pressure clean the cooler fins (tho i think they look clean)
I am at a loss, dunno why its been acting up...Kinda new at this trouble shooting stuff, so any help is appreciated.
The banging sound in the engine is Pre-ignition aka engine knock and detonation. This is BIG TIME BAD for the motor. It can destroy a crankshaft and piston in no time. And once it punches a hole in the top of the piston then little metal filings run through the entire lubrication system screwing up bearings and the like.
A lot is involved so the best thing is for you to download a service manual and a parts fiche. The manual can give you all the info available on the oil cooling and lubrication system. The parts fiche is a handy aid in parts identification and unit construction. Free manuals can be downloaded at the site below. Yours is 42nd from the bottom of the Suzuki list. The two files are next to each other.
Please rate this answer. Thanks chirker!

Your problem is probably fuel filter, replace it and you should be fine

How does it run before it warms up? Carb issue, or wires jumping arc not a heat problem
