Question about 2000 Suzuki GSX 600 F (Katana)

2 Answers

What would cause hanging revs/RPMs when the engine is warm? It's a stock 2000 katana 600 with 14k miles. The revs don't hang when the engine is cold.

Sounds to me like your carbs may need cleaning and or a rebuild, i had a 750 katana that would do that as well, didnt want to idle when cold, then too fast when warm/hot, gave my carbs a good cleaning and it cleared up, the jets can get plugged really easily, could also be bad gas, any contamination and or particles can cause problems, especially if the bike sits without running for too long, hope this helps =)

My 2000 linclon ls 6 cly cranks but sounds terriable just started doing it


I hope it's not the timing chain tensioner,Chris. I know the 2000 V8 engines had bad tensioners.
Could it be a loose starter or the starter drive is hanging up in the flywheel teeth?
Could it be a really bad DRIVE BELT TENSIONER or the idler pulley gone bad?
It's just difficult to say,but I hope it's not the TIMING CHAIN TENSIONERS. Lot of miles on it? don-ohio (:^)

Once bike gets over 3000 it sticks there. (hanging idle)


Probably the vacumn slides are hanging up, Not because they are stuck, But because the idle screw is set too high to get to idle. The idle will usually hang up at 3,000 rpms. Set the idle mixtures at 1 1/4 turns out & make sure the throttle cable has play. Now back the carb idle down till it just idles about 1,100 rpms. with choke off. If the carb sync is way off, I will hang up on 1 carb when hot. You need a vacumn guage set to make sure they are balanced. To check the spark advance (which I doubt), Put a timing light on the LH plug wire & shine it at the timing marks behaind the LH cover on motor at botton covering the generator. It should be on the F marks at idle & at the unmarked line aprox 1 " over which is full advanced when reved up to 1/2 throttle. But yes a air leak at the intake manifold could cause it to rev, But will be a very erratic idle at 1,100 rpms. If the idle circuits are working correctly, You should be able to kill each cylinder with turning in the mixture screws one at a time. That checks the idle jet circuits.

RPM revs high and changes while in neutral


Check the air intake sensors, called MAF or MASS air flow. They have temp and baro devices in them.

When i start the car it revs up to 2000 rpms or sruggles at around 200 or 300 rpms. After it warms up the problem seems to go away. Their is no check engine light on.


You have a vacume leak, and once the temp sensor starts to read after the warm up the ecm starts to control. I would also check IAC idle air control valve.

After vehicle has warmed, the oil light comes on under 1100 rpms . rev the engine the light goes off


You can't trust the light sensor, so you need to get a mechanical gauge. A cheap capillary tube one is only $10.
You should also change oil.
If the engine has over 100,000 miles, you could consider 20W-50 oil.
You could also have a problem with fuel or ignition, causing oil dillution.
Does it look too thin or smell like gas?
It could also be the oil pump is bad, but that is not normally worth trying.
The number of miles on the engine would help.
But low idle oil pressure is not that important.

hello lloyd...... definitely pull the carbs and rebuild them. Since you did everything else right, this alone should fix the problem. Joe

sounds like a vacum leak. get a can of wd-40 and spray all around the carbs when the motor revs up thats the source of the leak. fix or replace that part and ride into the sunset.

My 2005 Katana 600 F was idling slow at about 600 - 700 RPM so I messed with a throttle screw under the throttle lever. I got it to idle at 1000 RPM where I think it should be. But now when I turn the...


turn the cable adjuster back to its original position ie between 600-700 rpm look to the left hand side of the carbs you will see a large adjusting screw on a metal bracket whilst engine is running turn inwards towards rear wheel until between 1000 - 1500 rpm remember to warm engine first as rpm will rise if idle is set with a cold engine as the engine warms up when riding

Have 1999 cavilleir does it have a rpm protecter


Yes, the PCM for your vehicle's engine has a rev/speed limit seeting programmed into it. Most stock, non high performance/police package vehicles usually won't go above a top speed of 97MPH. if you were to rev your engine while it was in park or neutral, once the engine reaches the cut out rpm limit preset in the PCM, it will cause the engine to cut back, then it will rev up until it hits the preset limit, then cut back, and it keep repeating that pattern. It may sound as though you have a high rev ignition failure that sounds like waaa, waaa, waaa, waaa, but that indicates the PCM is doing its job.

Slow deceleration in neutral


it revs fine but then backs down to idle slowly. Cdsracer mentioned that his cousin's in SoCal also does this.... Is it due to the different dirtbike clutch basket size? Any idears? Something simple maybe?Mine both drop right back down. Sometimes a slight hover at 2200 RPM or so then settles at 2000 RPM (usually only before motor has fully warmed up) ,,,
