I have a 2006 Suzuki GS500F. At stops it

I have a 2006 Suzuki GS500F. At stops it itermittently runs at high idle 3000 to 4000 RPM. Adjusting the idle has not helped as then at a normal idle of 1200 - 1500 RPM it likes to stall. Cables looks just fine and are not sticking.

Possibly needs a carb clean, but sounds more like it needs a valve adjustment.

Suzuki jr80 takes too long for rpm to get back down to idle , after throttle is released. wasnt run for couple yrs. completely disassembled carb and cleaned. it starts 1-2kicks.not setting correctly?


Hi, Troy and the usual suspects are:
1. Throttle cables improperly adjusted, pinched or need lubrication.
2. Idle adjusting screw needs to be backed off.
4. Air fuel mixture adjusted too lean start with 2 full turns.
5. Intake system air leak.
6. Fast idle choke ramp is not releasing.
7. Broken throttle return spring.
8. Damaged diaphragm or slide.
9. Faulty MAP, TPS, ATS, O2, sensors or wiring/connector

How do you adjust fuel mixture on predator 212 cc motor. Mine will idle but loads up when above half to full throttle


You should have two adjustments, lo and hi speed. Maybe even a third mechanical adjusting screw that just sets the idle higher by moving the throttle plate open or closed.

It sounds like your mixture is running way too rich....so, try adjusting the high speed first to attain the desired 'no-load' rpm which SHOULD NOT be the highest rpm you can get. If you adjust it on the high adjustment to where it screams but 'blubbers' at wide open throttle you are near to where it should be. The blubbering will straighten out under load and cause the motor to run at full power. If you mistakenly adjust it to full rpm in no-load condition, it will be set 'too lean' to safely run the saw. The excess heat generated from the extremely lean condition could either score the piston and cylinder wall or melt a hole in the center of the piston.

Then proceed to adjust the lo setting. Adjust it to where the chain just begins to rotate, then adjust it back to where the chain stops.

Husqvarna 445 starts and stops running


check carb settings. turn low speed adjusting screw all the way in then turn it out about 1 1/4 turns out. repeat with high speed screw. when running readjust low speed until proper idle and high speed for proper high rpm .

My cars Idle RPM often remains high in the range of 1500 - 2000 and ocassionally Check Engine light comes on, However Check Engine Light dissapear as soon as cars moves on engine power. Did some one has...


a better question is why is idle so high? could be a vaccum leak or other issue. Adjusting the idle circuit is not the answer. Since the check engine light did come on perhaps you can retrieve a trouble code...maybe even a bad tps

My 426 doesnt idle smoothly. have to keep it reving to stop it stalling. have tried adjusting the idle screw, runs fine apart from the idle...


Replace Gold idle screw on the carb and then keep turning it clockwise till its revving high, Then slowly do it anti clockwise till its idling at a low RPM which you feel right or/and defined in the owners manual.

My gs500f is back firing through the CARB. the carbs where removed and cleaned they where in good codition.when the suzuki mechanic reassembled the bike and started it the bike dosent want to adjust down...


Lean mixtures burn very slowly, at times slowly enough to continue burning through the power and exhaust stroke, causing a backfire when the intake valve opens, and that flame gets a shot at the new mixture charge.

In normal operation, as the engine slows, the fuel delivery from the main circuit falls off, and the idle circuit is supposed to take over. If the idle circuit flows insufficiently, that becomes a transition to fuel starvation.

You can try pointing an unlit propane torch into the inlet air, and see if you can get closer to an idle while supplying a supplementary fuel source. You will need to do this in a way that gets propane to both carburetor inlets, maybe rigging a Y with vacuum hoses and electrical tape...

This started with work on the carburetors, so the fuel system would be the most suspect. That, and the fact that it will run at higher RPM would seem to rule out fuel delivery.

I was looking around at photos while developing this answer (needed to know whether this was a twin or a 4-cylinder), and one resource said the idle speed should be 1,200. I don't know if that's right, but maybe 1,000 RPM is too slow for this motor to keep it together. (I do doubt that, though.)

When I wrote that last sentence, I started to second guess myself, thinking "What if the fuel shutoff(s) is/are vacuum operated, and as the bike approaches idle there is insufficient vacuum to hold it/them open?" But the I rejected that, because there is even less vacuum at cranking speeds, yet the bike starts.

2007 Suzuki GS500F, Starter problem


weak wires are sometimes the cause of loss of power,if they have been really hot from trying to start and become higher in resistance. looking at the ends of wires where connection are sometimes can reveal bluing of the copper inside (signs of heat). loose cable ends look good but dont perform well.Test charging system for proper charge output to voltage reg. and battery.Short tolerance to load under start conditions could be due to not being charged at high enough volts from charging system. (too many chicken lites or other stuff drawing current)

Suzuki RM 85 exhaust valve adjustment


I will come back to you with the method for adjusting this.
If you set the power valve to open at a higher rpm or restrict the vavle from opening to its maximum then your problem will be solved.

If you do the latter though you will definately lose your power at high rpm.
