SOURCE: I have a suzuki drz 125l 2004 model that currently

okay theres a couple possable things that can cause this .... carbon on the valves, ran hard,not frequent oil changes, low on oil, cheap oil, spark plugg is too long , too much oil somtimes causes this,crank case breather plugged,it all depends on the way it was treated in the past or the present
i change my oil about every 15-20 hours keeps debre down and less friction on engine,remember this is not water cooled! so use the best 10-40 oil or atleast good known oil and run some seafoam through the gas,it will take that carbon off . and if you dont have a inline fuel filter u should get one they really save carbs and there only $3.00 at oreily! hope this helps <walker>

SOURCE: 2008 suzuki GSX 1000 motorcycle indicates on

FI = Fuel Injection. The FI computer is telling you that it has detected a problem and the code for that problem is "C13". Telephone your dealer and ask what that code C13 indicates is wrong. Then you can determine if you want to try the fix, i.e. "clean the air filter", or if the shop must do it, i.e. "# 3 injector is restricted".

A “very helpful” rating for this answer? Thanks!

SOURCE: How do i change the clock settings on a suzuki gsx

Press SELECT until your odometer reading is displayed.

Press SELECT and hold then immediately press ADJUST and hold it as well.

Keep holding both and your miles should switch to kilometers.

If it does not and your timing is ok, try pushing ADJUST first, holding, and pressing SELECT second, holding both until it changes.

SOURCE: 93 Suzuki Katana GSX 600 fuel issues?

You need to check and see if you are getting fuel from the tank into your carbs, if you pull the line that feeds the petcock valve off the top gas should come out. If it doesnt there is a clog in your tank. Now pull the line off the bottom of the petcock valve (this feeds your carbs) and make sure you have fuel at all setting of the petcock valve except for off. If you dont then you probably have a bad petcock valve. If you are getting fuel from the petcock vavle into you carbs then there is a problem with your carbs.

If you take the fuel bowl drain screw out of the carb (located on the bottom). Gas should run out of the associated carb, if it doesn't, then you have something stuck in the carb and one carb not working correctly can make the bike not run. If you find this to be the problem get a can of carb cleaner, take the fuel bowl drain screw out and let the gas run out, stick the red spray wand from the can of cleaner into the hole and flush your carbs out really good.

Then give it a try. Make sure that the connection between your carbs and head is tight while you are there. If that does not fix your problem you may ahve to pull the carbs and take a closer look.

1989 Suzuki GSX 750 F that won't idle below 3000 rpm


Hi, Suzuki #5 is jumping up and down waving the Suzuki flag screaming "pick me pick me" and the usual suspects are:
1. Throttle cables improperly adjusted, pinched or need lubrication.
2. Idle adjusting screw needs to be backed off.
4. Air fuel mixture adjusted too lean start with 2 full turns.
5. Intake system air leak, check intake boots with propane
6. Fast idle choke ramp is not releasing.
7. Broken throttle return spring.
8. Damaged diaphragm or slide.
9. Faulty MAP, TPS, ATS, O2, sensors or wiring/connector.
10. Multiple carburetors not in sync.

Hi, Sturmtiger the answer to these questions are way above my pay grade for this situation, I would call or visit my local dealer or reputable shop's service/parts department and inquire about any possible quick fix, answers, or parts inquiry.

My bike will idel but won t rev. just cuts off


Starving for fuel.
Make sure carbs are getting fuel.
Make sure fuel filters are clean,
make sure fuel pump is working.

If carbs are getting fuel but wont rev, you need to clean your carbs because your jets are clogged

Changed the air box for pod filters and now the bike seems to run out of gas under hard acceleration do i need a bigger fuel valve? anyone else have this prob


You need to re-jet your carburetors to compensate for the increased air flow. The bike is starving for fuel because the carburetors are jetted for the air box. Typically you would need to change the pilot jet and adjust the a/f mixture on the carbs. You didn't specify if your carbs were stock or modified so I am including a link for you that can guide you through the process. In the meantime, if your bike is a daily rider, put the stock air boxback on until you can re-jet the carburetor. Here is the link: http://www.dynoman.net/carb/pdf/mikRS-access.pdf
