Question about 2003 Suzuki GSX 600 F (Katana)

1 Answer

2003 Suzuki GSXR 750 sounds like a vtwin and heats up quickly

My bike had just recently started doing this. It ran perfectly before I left for vacation, it sat for 5 days, then when I started her up and rode it, the thing sounds like a vtwin [don't really mind that too much ;-)], and the operating temperature rises rather quickly. It does have a powercommander, runs rather rich (about 30mpg), and only has 9,400 miles on it. My first guess is one of the plugs has fowled (too rich) and is causing the engine to misfire at one of the cylinders. But I don't see how this would raise the operating temperature so quickly. I can get the bike started, but it doesn't want to idle for very long, and it stalls easily. I know I need to take a look at the plugs to verify fouling and if they are covered in black carbon. Also, I'll need to take a look at the air filter and replace that if necessary. I may need to get a better fuel map and tune with the pc...Any other thoughts?

    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.

    Got a suzuki gsxr srad 2000 model went out for a ride today since i brought the bike 2 weeks ago and i let her warm up with the choke up must of forgot to put it back down for the ride and now it wont...


    Around 2000 was the first year for fuel injection for the GSXR 750. It really isn't a 'choke' in the true sense of the word. It's a device that causes a high idle similar to an 'enrichener circuit' to warm up the bike engine. There should be no damage to the engine by leaving it on for a short ride so I'm thinking there was an unlerlying issue with the bike that the previous owner left undisclosed.

    Around 2003 that device was abandoned due to the advancement of technology in fuel injection and was no longer needed.

    After typing this response I just noticed the original post date was in 2012 and I'm sure the bike has been either repaired, sold or crashed by now but maybe this answer will be helpful to someone else.....

    My GSXR 750 J runs extreemly rough between 7000 and 9000 rpm. Its a mildly tuned engine with after market cams, a dynojet kit and I recently installed some inline fuel filters. The bike runs perfectly...


    I would check and adjust the static ignition timing as if too far retarded it will tend to misfire at mid range revs. and suffer from lack of power at the top end.

    My 2003 suzuki gsxr won't star has been sitting in the garage for three months without starting it cranks over pretty good, did I choke the engine with too much gas trying to start it?


    Hi from Spain,

    no way to choke this fuel injected bike in theory....but by my experience try to start the bike with fully open throttle several times, take care do not flat the battery, if the bike has not much fuel do not try with the bike on the side stand so the fuel cannot reach the fuel pump inlet.

    BR,

    Emilio.

    Bought a gsxr at an auction with no ignition and key......what do i do to start the bike


    Without a good knowledge of the bikes wiring you could fry the ignition system if you try.

    Your best bet is to get the new ignition cylnder from a junk yard or Suzuki dealer.

    I hope you made sure the bike wasn't on the hot sheet before you bought it!

    I have a 85 gsxr 750 running rich on the left


    Hi Chris,
    You will have to recheck the float level (in the float chamber) of those two carburators, reset if necessary.
    You may also have to reset the air-mixture screw for both of those carbs. Standard procedure to set htem is tighten them all the way in making sure not to over tighten to avoid damaging the sharp end of the screw, and thn to open 2 and a half to 3 turns.
    You can thn reset them as the engine is running + -- either way.
    Hope this helps!
