I had a similar problem with my Vulcan years ago, it turned out to be the Ignition Wires. Check to see if you get spark while the bike is hot.

1998 Suzuki GSX 600 F (Katana) only running on 3 cylinders

Hey Anon,
...If the bike has been sitting for a long time,.. as you state..99.999% chance its the carburetors, they are probably clogged/stopped up/dirty.. (sitting for this long has actually ruined some carbs to the point of replacement).. all the garbage that is included in gasoline now is really bad on the insides of a carb!!) Take them to a qualified professional for checking, cleaning and setting .... Check the compression on all cylinders.. you should have at least 120+psi. MINIMUM.... with no more that 20PSI. max difference between ANY two cylinders... Forget about all the minutia in the first answer.. just a bunch of copy and paste... no real life experience..he's just racking up points

2002 GSX 600F katana no spark on 1&4, replaced coil and still, no spark, checked all connections where to go from there, help season is coming

Hi, Bill and the usual suspects are:
1. Fouled spark plugs.
2. Severely discharged or a damaged battery, should have 12.5 volts or better and be able to pass a load test if necessary.
3. 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.
4. Loose connection at ignition coil or plug between ignition sensor and module.
5. Spark plug cables in bad condition, shorting, leaking, spark plug cable connections loose check for spark leakage in the dark.
6. Faulty ignition coil or electronic control module.
7. Faulty CKP, CMP, or BAS sensor.
8. Faulty ignition switch.
9. Tilt sensor needs a reset.
10. Security alarm failing to disarm needs reset

Why did my 97 katana gsx 600f lose power after i changed spark plugs?

Pull those spark plugs back out and check the gap, Charles. If they don't have the correct gap, they'll work poorly. If the gap is a LONG way from correct, they won't fire at all.

Hi Michael, for this situation I would consider using a carburetor dipping solution that your dealer should sell or you can purchase at an auto parts store and for more information about your question please visit the website below. Good luck and have a nice day.

Suxuki gsx 600f won't tick-over when hot

Things need to be asked, have you had the valve clearance checked. it could be holding the valves open when the motor is warmed up and not getting the compresstion it needs.

Slight ticking at iddle speed

have you tried adjusting the tickover/idle speed on the carbs. Its should be ticking over at 1000-1200.
