The choke cable (or push-rod if fitted) attaches to a bar which actuates all 4 carbs. It is located at the top rear of the carbs & is very unlikely to get damaged during a fall as it does not protrude beyond the left carb.Check it is not bent or pulled away from the choke plungers. Check also that the cable is sitting properly in its housing on the carbs.
The choke lever on the handlebar may be damaged, or the choke cable may be broken
The most likely cause of not starting after a fall is where the carbs have over flowed causing the engine to flood & the plugs to foul (get wet); clean thoroughly & dry with heat, check for a spark by attaching plug to cap & placing the electrode end on the head
DO NOT TURN ENGINE OVER WITHOUT ALL PLUGS BEING EARTHED
If no spark & the plugs are black at the base of the middle electrode try new plugs
This should be all you need

Ride safe

Katana 600 oil lines


Hi, John it's a vent line for the fuel tank that is supposed to be run down pass the bottom of the frame usually loosely secured with a tie wrap lead acid batteries and carburetors have a similar tubes and tie wrap these lines do not attach to anything at the bottom they should be free from kinks and pinches so they can breathe easily.

How do i bleed my clutch system?


Fill your res. at the lever, leave the cover off. Don't squeeze the lever. Open the bleed valve down on the clutch till fluid runs out. Tighten it a little and add some fluid as it drains out. Close the bleed valve, refill the res. Barely reopen the bleed valve and let some more fluid seep out. Close the bleed valve and refill the res. Put the cap on, Go.
