Question about Suzuki GSX 1100 F (Katana Motorcycles
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
Please mark this as very helpful (if it has been!!)
