Question about 1979 Suzuki GT 380
Obviously, it is getting fuel to the carburetor if it runs all day. The hose hanging on the carburetor is probably a float bowl vent. Remove the air cleaner connection at the carburetor so that you can look into the carburetor throat. Open the throttle fully, and check if the throat opens completely. If only part way, check the linkage adjustments. I have seen physical limits that were purposely installed to prevent full throttle operation. If the carburetor seems to be opening to full capacity, then check the air filter for plugging as well as for a plugged muffler. Try pushing the machine by hand to see if it rolls freely (tight brakes, bad bearings, etc.). If this is a 4-stroke engine, check the valve clearances. Hope some of this helps!
