Question about Suzuki Motorcycles
Clean the carb. Ethanol fuel causes this or just sitting with old fuel.
Use Ethanol free, and a stabilizer such as Stabil or Startron.

Any changes you make to the exhaust system will alter the sound the bike produces. The more you cut baffles,and open up the exhaust, the louder it will get. What you do alter to a greater extent,is the state of tune of the motorcycle. Any changes to exhaust or inlet plumbing will require a retune of the engine to suit the modifications. This can be subtle to dramatic. Opening up exhausts can often rob low end power where exhaust port scavaging is relient on some back pressure for maximum effect.
Best to work directly with an engine tuner to do the mods that are known you can get away with, or buy aftermarket prebuilt pipes that have a known previously tested state of tune. Nothing worse than doing something, that then costs money to put back the way it was on finding out it didnt work as well as was hoped.. Hope this has helped you steer your custom mods a little. I can say with certainty, that I have ventured to do what you are doing many times in the past, and it has always cost me more money in tuning and... and well more parts :) Cheers

Use 10w40 motor oil in the gear box. Don't use any synthetic lubricants, oil marked "EC", or oil with "special" additives. Stick with the major brands; Pennzoil, Quaker State, Mobil or Shell. If in a hot area like Texas or New Mexico go with 20w50.
I don't have a service manual on your particular bike so just check oil quantity with the dealer when you go to buy the new oil filter. Don't forget to lube the cables and chain when doing the oil change.

Could be 2 things to look at first.1 the idle adjusting screw has been screwed in to far and is holding the throttle slide open.The other is an air leak between the carby and the motor resulting in the air/fuel mixture being to lean.This would cause the revs of the engine to be to high.Check these 2 things.Hope this helps

Nothing. Your best bet is to give to a professional. If you are somewhat mechanically inclined, you can tackle the job yourself. If you can get past dismounting the carburetors while remembering how it is installed into the bike (I recommend taking pictures), then you are more than capable of cleaning the carbs yourself. Let me know if you need any help with that. A service manual can be very helpful during this and other repair jobs. Remember, riding your bike is more fun after you fix something yourself.
