I would try checking the rubber between the carb and motor for air leaks,and/or spray carb cleaner through while running with the air box open.
Hope this helps.

Drain the carb floats and clean with Seafoam. Gas breaks down after about 6 months and the ethanol in the gas coats the carb.

No use of the Bike for a long time

Disassemble and clean the Carbs. That might be all you need to do. CBike Carbs have small Jets and this ethanol gas is very bad for Carb'd vehicles. It evaporates quick and causes much growth in the carb.

My suzuki back firing on me and also is cutting out

Has the bike been sitting? It sounds like a carb issue. Most times they backfire because they are running too lean.Also,check for vacuum leaks around the intake using brake clean while the bike is running.If the idling characteristics change when you spray it,then you know you have an intake leak.If the bike has been sitting for a while,then the carbs may need to come off,and be cleaned and synched.

Have a 2000 Suzuki Intruder 800. Back cylinder

When cleaning a multi carb bike, it is best to take them all off. Clean and reset float levels on both. Then reinstall, set both idle mixture screws about 1 turn out. Then adjust, and you'll probably have to syncronise them also.

What will happen if I use automotive carb cleaner?

Nothing. Your best bet is to give to a professional. If you are somewhat mechanically inclined, you can tackle the job yourself. If you can get past dismounting the carburetors while remembering how it is installed into the bike (I recommend taking pictures), then you are more than capable of cleaning the carbs yourself. Let me know if you need any help with that. A service manual can be very helpful during this and other repair jobs. Remember, riding your bike is more fun after you fix something yourself.

Suspected problem with choke.

hey apparently and did are two different stories draining the float bowls and cleaning the carbs are two different things the fact that the choke dosent change suggest the carbs are stopped up after sitting for 1 year clean the carbs let them soak in carb cleaner and blow them out with high pressure air, keep notes of the adjustments befor you dissasemble them (air screws)
