what can i do to fix this i have put in new plugs and change oil.

Also the fuel gauge stays at E is there a fix for this? Im a new first time owner of a bike and well this bike didn't have a owners manual It runs nice and these are the only problems i have at this time

Where do i look to see how much gear oil i have in drive shaft gerabox1982 gs suzuki l 1100

Since the other "answers" failed to note that this is a shaft-drive bike and the OP asked about GEAR oil and not engine oil....
On the side of the rear hub that has the shaft drive, look near the top of the hub. There should be a filler-cap of some sort. Usually on the face of the hub, but above the center-line and slightly to the rear
Put the bike on a level surface and put on the center stand (or have a friend hold the bike level). remove the filler-cap (inspection cap). The gear oil level should just start to be at the lowest point of the opening for the cap.

81 Suzuki gs650 #2 carb floods gas out after start

The float is stuck open in the leaking carb. Remove the float bowl and clean the carb after removing the pin holding the float in place. While the float is out, shake it to see if gas has gotten inside it. If so, you will need a new float or will need to drain the float then re-solder it to seal it up again. To drain the float chances are you will need to drill a vent hole in it to allow the gas to drain. Just solder the vent closed when done.

1982 suzuki gs650 runs, but not over 300rpm

better check for the ignition coil for proper sparking or igniting of current in the comprssion chamber, check the ignition coil spark plug wire, check the spark plug, check for proper fuel supply in the flow system to Carbs, check for Ignition timing of the bike, or still you cant solve or still worried then dont worry better take the bike to nearest aurhorised Suzuki service centre for better assistance on this problem surely the problem will be solved.

High idle when the bikes hot.

You either need to clean and adjust the carbs on it, or you have a vacuum leak somewhere.

Have an 06 Suzuki Katana 750. when I start it with full choke it runs fine, then when I go to ride (choke off) it has a low idle and stalls out. I have to go full choke for it to warm up for over 30 min....

Not for sure but u might try to re jet the bike.i own a 98 suzuki bandit 600s and it also is really cold hearted. those bikes are unfortunately known for that problem.not that it was much help but u might try contacting Dales Holeshot Performance he specializes those types of bikes he also sells the jet kits.
i would also try to adjust the idle slightly higher hope this at least helps
