Question about 2009 Suzuki GSX650F

1 Answer

Yes I'd been putting octane booster in the low grade fuel which never gave me anything but fantastic results. Then I threw some fuel injector cleaner left over from the car now it doesn't idle like it

Recently had a death in family and I've ridden it way too fast, a lot ! Now as I'd said it doesn't idle as it once did, and downshifting it doesn't act right. Had to have an oil change after 1400 miles in 2 weeks, the tech suggested Red Line additive to help resolve, but so far it runs fast just has changed on the idle sound and of course when downshifting, it seems I have to keep a little higher RPM rev than I used to. Please let me know of anything that might adjust this issue...I'm about to change out the plugs but it still starts way to easily and runs pretty fast on top end, maybe 10-20 mph difference than what it did before adding the fuel injector cleaner for the cars.

Not a good idea to use car injector cleaners for bikes. especially type designed for Ford. They need to be sprayed in in take and left for period of time. They can eat away "o" rings and seals.check for vacuum leaks by spraying around intake with 2+2 carb cleaner. if begins to run normally find the leak,

SOURCE: vibration

The carbs should be synchronized every 20k miles. If you are having a roughness in idle then I would recommend the carbs being synched. If the problem is at higher RPM's I'd check to see if the motor has a harmonic dampener that can be adjusted. This often resolves vibration issues. I'm just not sure if this bike has one. These big bikes usually have some sort of adjustable dampening device internally.
I'd also like to have you check the motor mounts. This is a common problem if your bike has any rubber in the motor mounts. The rubber wears or even breaks and you often cannot see it until you actually try to remove the mount. Often they will fall apart in your hands.
These big motors all vibrate a bit so many of the manufacturers have realized that adding modified motor mounts is helpful.

SOURCE: 04-5 gsxr 1000

My 04 gsxr 1000 was parked for a year and a half when i bought it. I had a ton of rust in the fuel tank. The engine is fuel injected so it needs a free flowing fuel pump to keep a constant pressure. more than likely the strainer at the bottom of the pump housing is plugged up full of rust. You will need to remove the tank from the bike and drain all the bad fuel. Unbolt the pump housing from under the tank take care not to damage the o ring. Separate the pump from the housing by pulling apart. This may take some brute force because the rust tends to stick the pump to the housing. Once separated you will see the plastic micro strainer it will be solid brown impregnated by rust. Carefuly remove it and soak it in some fresh clean gosoline. Swish it around in a glass jar with a lid on it if possible. This worked for me. The alternative is a new strainer for about 100.00 USD. Clean the rest of the pump externally with a soft bristle brush. Drain the pump as best you can. Do not attempt to disassemble the pump as it is sealed and considered maintenance free. Ventalate the tank untill completely dry and blow it out with compressed air untill no more rust dust comes out of it. At this point you can recoat the inside of the tank if you wish, there is a product called kreme for that. Im cheap so i didn't recoat mine. Reassemble, refill with high octane fuel and dont store long term without draining the fuel tank completely and run the engine til it starves itself of fuel. With all this said YOU ARE DEALING WITH FUEL BE CAREFUL, DONT BLOW YOURSELF UP!!!

SOURCE: idleing problems(2001 suzuki drz 250)

Remove the carb , dissemble it and clean the varnish out. After so long in storage I am surprised it runs at all. Remove the petcock, ( gas valve ),water trap and clean it out. Next let one cup of gas flow into a container. Any water or rust in the bottom of the container? If any rust was in the water trap or the container then purchase an inline fuel filter to eliminate the rust getting into the carb.

If cleaning the carb yourself does not do the trick then take it to the dealer and have them clean it and install a carb kit. This should get you back on the road.

SOURCE: oil blowing out of exhaust

Run it out, The oil has collect in the exhaust media and baffles. Iver fill can cause this proble. As long as it has oil in it, run it out (burn it out) If the oil is low when you ck it, and that should be often, Then note it. Valve guide wear is progressive and the engine would smoke. Keep the oil level proper and take it on a mellow ride, no hard throttling. You should see an improvement after about 20 miles down the freewayat 60. Just stay alertand pay attention to the sound of the motor. Good luck and let me know when you get back.

SOURCE: 83 suziki GS450 idle issues

the problem with the rubber was close but on the gs450 there is a metal insert that even if the rubber was rotted away the metal seals aginst the head so it cant leak. the problem is on the gs 450 suzuki used a cheap throttle cable that kinks behind the gas tank and kinks at the bend to the crabs under the set and the throttle system is a pull only not a dual cable pull push to always close the throttle. if you start the bike a wiggle the bend in the cable that comes out from the twist grip you will see it changes the idle. with either your finger or a screw driver and push the plate down on the carbs that the cable connects too. if the idle drops this conforms your problem. order a new cable from dennis kirk they have the revised one that has metal adjustment screw and metal clip in. better jacket casing as well.

Vibration at idle


it may be idle control sensor or a bad mas air flow sensor--maf sensor in otherwords. or could be engine misfire at cold temp. start. only time when cold? or does run better when warm? try warming engine to operating temperature before driving,if problem removes it's self after warm up,up grade gas to 93 octane for 1 tank full. then see if problem goes away. it's cold where you are right? if so the fuel needs to be at least midgrade 89 octane fuel because 87 octane fuel will not start your honda correctly at cold temps. in cold weather 93 or super gas octane will start ,no problem,low octane fuel sometimes gels, or freezes at low temps. if in warm climate, change the fuel filter, add fuel injector cleaner to your fuel tank[preferablly lucas fuel treatment] this will lube your fuel injectors and give better fuel mileage. thank you for choosing fixya.com

Needs to know the best recommended fuel type for my toyota corolla 1993 model


Hi!!

You should be using regular unleaded. This is "regular" 87-octane gasoline. You have no reason to need gas with a higher octane, it would be a waste, stick to 87.

Good luck!!

My uplander use to get around 18 mpg. now it is only getting( if im lucky) high 14s to very low 15s. and this started to happen after i put some injector cleaner in it ( seafoam)


some octane boosters have detergent in them if you use some it may clean out your system. other causes for poor fuel mileage are, low air pressure in tires, restricted air/dirty air filter of fouled spark plugs. you may also try using a higher fuel octane for one tank and see if it helps when you switch back to your usual. hope this helps

Knocking/tapping when accelerating on 2003 nissan x-trail td


Usually an indication of Bad fuel, needs a tune up or Slipped Timing. Most likely bad fuel or tune up depending on when the last time you replaced the plugs and wires was. If you have been using the 87 Octane low grade fuel that would cause this or if you happened to get some bad fuel at a station. The vehicle will run on 87 octane but was designed to have a minimum of 89 octane fuel, the mid grade. If you haven't replaced your spark plugs in the last 25,000 miles replace the spark plugs and wires. If you suspect the fuel is the issue you can get injector cleaner or Octane boost and add to a FULL tank of gas to clean it out.

yes theres a fuel filter.
doubt its the plugs.
you dont need octane booster or even anything above 89 octane.
chances are you have a problem with the ignition coil(s).

Spark knocks when taking off from idling/starts to miss after sitting at idle


The 2 most common causes of spark knock are #1 ignition timing too high, and #2 Low octane fuel. Check your ignition timing, and try a mid grade 89 octane or 91 octane fuel, or you could use an octane booster in your fuel. Good Luck! I hope you find this to be very helpful!

You answered your own question... the cause is the low octane fuel... the fix is the higher grade stuff... Also check into having injectors cleaned (or try a bottle of STP injector cleaner)
