Question about 1999 Suzuki GSX 750 F (Katana)

GSX750FX running problem

I Have a 1999 GSX 750 FX, this problem started a few days ago and has gotten to the point where I cant ride it. I have made no modifications to the bike before the problem arose. I can start the bike and it revs well when in neutral, when I try and drive the bike, as long as I keep the revs around tickover it runs, as soon as I crack the throttle it slows and dies. However if I put the choke on, I can ride it around quite happily with the engine running at about 3.5-4000 RPM, but again if I crack the throttle, it starts to choke out and die. A few months ago it would not start at all, the fault was due to water in the carb floats( due to a kinked fuel cap water drain, which was sorted out), could this be an extension to that problem with more water in the floats?

any help would be gratefully recieved.

Needs the carbs cleaned out, and possibly some new spark plugs. If it has been over 4K since the plugs were changed, they need replacing also.

1999 Suzuki GSXR 600 turns over extremely slow


Hi, Sharon my gut tells me you may have a faulty battery ground cable connection to the frame or engine case or your starter relay, starter solenoid, starter motor are being given last rites for this scenario you will need your service/owners manual if you can't find the first and best tool you ever bought for your Suzuki, despair not, for a mere zero $0 you can download another one.

Hi there!
Too much gas mixture or there maybe plug problems. If it doesnt start, charge the battery and start the bike with new spark plugs. Replace the plugs, this usually works.
Let me know if this is any good. Other options:

1. THe spark plug cable
2. The ballast
3. The jets are clogged
4. Poor fuel quality.

Bike shut off when riding.


Hi and welcome to FixYa,

Your description indicates an electrical malfunction. Offhand, the jump start and charging is significant. This points to the bike's battery not charging. Suspects would be:
  • voltage regulator (most likely);
  • connectors to voltage regulator (likely). Check/clean corrosion/burnt marks;
  • stator and/or the 3 wires coming from it (least likely).
Good luck and thank you for using FixYa.
