Gidday there Tim, It could possibly be dirt in the Jets or carby;s themsevles. I would go and purchase some fuel additive put it into your tank after filling up and take her for a long run. It might take 2 or 3 goes at this rather than pull down the actual carbs which is a messy job.
Could also be a crook plug breaking down when you throttle up. Even though they are new sometimes like all things you get a not so good one.
Try that there Tim and see how you go failing that back to the shop and explain what is happening.
Hope that helps

SOURCE: bike runs in neutral but cuts out when a gear is selected.

Your sidestand switch kills the engine if the bike is put in gear with the sidestand down. If your stand is up and this is happening either the switch is broken or out of position. If it is broken you can twist the wires together until you can replace the switch. If it is just bent out of position you can bend it back carefully.

it sounds to me like the carb float levels are out of adjustment and it is overfilling the bowls,or,the needle valve seats are worn and leaking,which will allow fuel to continue filling the bowls even though it looks like they are closed,remove the carbs from the bike,remove the bowls,turn the cabs upside down close the floats(push them right to the top,this simulates full bowls)then blow throgh the fuel inlet pipe,if you can hear air escaping from around the seats they are faulty,also check that the seats themselves are tight in the carb body,i dont know why but gsxr carbs seem to shake the valve seats loose..hope this helps

SOURCE: suzuki gsxr 600 06 starting problems

200° is quite warm...
If the engine wont turn over, probabily you have a bad battery, a bad starter or a bad starter relay, or bad connections.

A hot engine has more compression. If the full battery power doesn't reach the starter it won't turn over...

SOURCE: my suzuki gsxr 600 srad started to over heat.

One, or more, of the three necessary ingrediants for combustion are missing: fuel, compression, and a spark (at the right time).
You said that it started to overheat. Find out why. Then, check the engine's compression. You need at least 140 psi of compression, in every cylinder, for the engine to start and run. Low compression indicates either the need for a valve adjustment - or serious engine repairs.

1999 GSXR 600 s-Rad. Why does it start spluttering and juddering like crazy?

Hi, Kear and the usual suspects are:
1. Spark plugs in bad condition or partially fouled.
2. Spark plug cables in bad condition and leaking.
3. Spark plug gap too close or too wide.
4. Faulty ignition coil, module, and or sensor.
5. Battery nearly discharged.
6. Check battery terminals for damage or corrosion, check the battery cables at "BOTH" ends for loose, corroded, or broken connectors, "INSIDE" and outside the cable harness, perform connector wiggle test and check cables with an ohmmeter if necessary.
7. Intake air leak.
8. Water, dirt, or rust in the fuel system, carburetor and/or filter.
9. Fuel tank vent system plugged or carburetor vent line closed off.
10. Carburetor controls misadjusted.
11. Damaged carburetor.
12. Loose, dirty, or corroded ignition module connector at crankcase.
13. Faulty MAP, CKP, O2, and/or CMP sensors.
14. Incorrect valve timing.
15. Weak or broken valve springs.
16. Damaged intake or exhaust valve.

I have a 1999 suzuki gsxr I sync the carbs and changed the spark plugs I started my bike and idle fine put in to 1st gear and the bike starting spuddering every time I put a load every gear it would...

If the motorcycle has sat more than 6 months with reformulated gas, it more likely has jets plugged up and will need a carb cleaning. Plug jets will cause sputtering and bogging down when the engine is loaded.

I have a 1999 suzuki gsxr 600 I sync carbs changed spark plugs now I ride and when I give it a load it stats to spudder out

If the motorcycle sat more than 6 months with reformulated gas, it most likely needs the carbs cleaned out. Plugged jets inside the carbs will make it sputter and bog down when under a load.

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.

Where can i find the spark plugs on my gsxr 600 1999 model

To locate the spark plugs on your bike you will need to remove the tank or at least raise the front and prop it up, in front of the carbs there should be a rubber heat shield pull it up and the there will be 4 coils attached to the spark plugs the two outer plug are a little dificult to get to but with a little work you can do it.

My 97 suzuki gsxr 1100. start but that is it Help.

Rebuild the top end? Run screaming from that shop. The fact that they said they couldn't sync the carbs should have been your first clue. I would have been suggesting a fuel problem anyway but take it to a shop that knows what it's doing and you should be fine but you will probably have to replace th spark plugs because of the fuel problem.

1999 GSXR 600 ---> Hesitating and bucking??

The best help I can give you is a free factory service manual. There will be a troubleshooting section in the book that should be of help. You have fuel injection and I am a "carbs only" man. Go to the site below and download the free manual. Yours is the 43rd from the top of the Suzuki section.

Now you can do a whole lot more on your bike.
Please rate this answer. Thanks fieldsry!
