You have two coils on the bike. I would start by checking the coil for the non working cylinders. Trace the spark plug wires back to the coil from cylinders 1 & 2.

1990 gsxr 750 coil reads 14500 , ohms on secondary circuit (plug cap 1 to plug cap 4) should read 30,000 to 40,000ohms but same on coils 3and 2 plug caps engine runs but not well on no 4 cylinder

Most coil secondary resistance measure between 12K and 16K so well within the limmits. The HT wires may be resistance wires and then read around 15K to 30K.
I would look elsewhere for your fault. Check the compression and plug gap.

Have a 78 gs 750, new points, condensors, plugs, plug caps, swapped coils from another gs, and still cylinders 2 &3 are not as hot to the touch as 1&4. Compression checked at acceptable values...

Does the 2 & 3 cylinders have any oil smear on the plugs.? please pull off all the plugs and check the performance. Check the gaps in the plugs. now since you did compression check , I would advice to have the firing of the 2 & 3 plugs with the plug attached checked.
Now correct if the gaps are down or reduce slighly if the intensity is no so good.
now start the engine and remove plug 1 , if it stall , try again with 4, now try with 2 & 3.
Check if the firing order is misplaced or there is lack of HT in the distribution.
check and comment
please rate me

Do u know the firing order for a 89 suzuki

89 Katana uses two coils, one fires cylinders 1 and 4 together and the other fires 2 and 3 together. It's a waste spark system. So your firing order is either one coil or the other every revolution.

My old suzuki 250 gsxr - j is only working on two cylinder.

Hi and welcome to FixYa,

If the cylinders that wont fire are 1 & 4 or 2 & 3, then it would be an electrical/ignition problem. Check the ignition coil, wiring, connectors, CDI and pulser coil. On the other hand, if the cylinders that won't fire are 1 & 2 or 3 & 4, then it would be a carb issue. Determine if fuel is reaching and filling the bowls of the carbs by loosening the drain screws of each card. Note the amount and quality of fuel. Alternately, a carb pulldown, cleaning, soaking maybe required.

The red speed light would lit up on 80 KPH is normal. This is prescribed by Japanese law since presumably your bike is a JDM (Japan Domestic Model). If no restrictors are installed, then either remove the bulb or ignore it.

Good luck and thank you for asking FixYa.

Stops firing on middle 2 cylinders when it gets to running temp

The coil is probably breaking down internally when the heat rises. The only other possibility is the electronic ignition going bad. Have a dealer check the bike before spending bucks on a new coil when the old one may actually be good.

Please rate this solution. Thanks! :)

Not runing

switch plug wires and see if the dead cylinder starts firing --if it does you need new wires
