You have four carburetor's that need to be in sync, one of many problems possible in just one carby will give you grief....

Choke maybe still open, allowing fuel to enter intake without proper air/mixture ratio. Or, the carburetor pilot jets and/or main jets are blocked or dirty.

Fuel contaminates do build up on the linings of various metals prior to reaching fuel reaching the carby's. Periodically (especially if your vary your fuel brand or even retailer's) clean the fuel tap filter and flush the carburetors with an aerosol carby cleaner.

Check condition of air filtration and while the covers are off, check all carburetor's to see slides and needles are moving in perfect unison when you twist the throttle.

Howdy I have a Suzuki 93 katana 1100 whene I start it with choke on it idles good but whene I take the choke off and give it gas it makes a bogging sound soon giving it more gas the bogging goes away

A good chance you have a partially plugged slow speed circuit in the carbs. When the choke is on you are restricting air and getting more gas, when you give it more gas and get beyond the slow speed into the high speed it clears up. My guess is the bike has been run and let sit with Ethanol fuel in it. Probably will take a carb cleaning to straighten it out. Also on that vintage get Ethanol free fuel if at all possible and run a fuel stabilizer additive such as Startron or Stabil as well.

1990 Mazda 626 Car starts, idles and runs very well when cold however whwn its hot the car is hard to start and stalls. So far the idlde air cotrol valve and mass air sensor have been replaced . Each...

Honestly sounds like the throttle position sensor, if the car is cold it will be choked and thus the throttle body flap almost closed easy to crank, more fuel less air.... when the air warms it moves the throttles actual flap opening wider, thus more air less fuel and harder starting, not as much fuel to combust and if the computer cannot sense the correct position, it will cause acceleration hesitating, poor idle, and what is called stumbling, where you press the gas and it kind of sounds like the motor sputters for a second and then goes or the occasional surging if at highway speed of say 60 mph and you feel the car kinda speed up mile or 2 and then back to the original speed.

My 93 nissan p/u had that issue, but the tps was replaced and it takes 2-3 revolutions on the motor and it's running smooth, hot or cold.

Hope this helps.

Automatic choke problem

93 mirage doesnt have a choke, it is fuel injected! What exactly do you mean by hard to start? Does it take longer than normal to start, does it initially crank slower than normal? You could try cycling the key before attempting to start it! By this i mean, thrn the key to RUN, wait a couple seconds, turn key to off, turn back to run, wait a couple seconds,, turn to off, then attempt to start! See what that does!

89 Jeep Wrangler when I accelerate it hesitate slow down its fine,accelerate it hesitate,and sometimes it will ****

Start by checking the choke. While the hood is up reach in to the carb and give it the gas.If the choke is normal then check your distributor cap for cracks(especially hairline ones,then check your rotor etc.
Best of luck

1986goldwing will start and idol but when you give it gas it dies

BO, to check the fuel pump, disconnect the line running to the carbs, then start it up , to see if it is pumpping,if it is that means your high speed jetts might be stopped up, if you do not want to take them off to clean them, poor some SEA FOAM in your gas tank ,and let set there and run for a bit. It might smoke but after it stops ,it will be cleared up,
