Question about Suzuki GSX 600 F (Katana Motorcycles

1 Answer

I have a 1999 katana 600. It will start and run with the choke on. However it will not run without the choke. I have cleaned the carbs and dipped everything in carb clean over night. The diphrams don't look too bad and the fuel filter is new. The mixture screw is turned out 2 turns. Everything seems fine, but it just wont run. The carbs are also synced.

It still sounds like your pilot jets in the carburetor are clogged. Just soaking will not clear plugged jets. The jets need to be removed, and manually cleared out. If you take a single strand from a piece of wire, it is usually small enough to pass through the pilot jet without damaging the orifice. After you have passed the wire through the jet, soak it again to remove any remaining deposits. Then blow the jet clear with compressed air. You should be able to see light through the jet orifice if it is clear.

Hi Michael, for this situation I would consider using a carburetor dipping solution that your dealer should sell or you can purchase at an auto parts store and for more information about your question please visit the website below. Good luck and have a nice day.

Cant accel faster than 6000 rpms on my 1999 600 susuki katana or you can say cant go faster than 75-80 mph it starts to stall or bog out i think


Well one area I recommend you to check is the power jets in the carb. Overall check your jettings because you are starving on high end. To test try closing your choke half way and see if that gives you more pull ower over 6K rev. Good enough?

No idle,only runs if choked


2 and 1/2 just a point of refrence, it might have just as well been 1 1/2, when cleaning carbs disasemble them,as just using spray or add to the tank cleaners cant remove solids stuck in carbs and filters.Also look for any damage to ductwork at carbs that could let in any unregulated air.

Having problem keeping 1999 suzuki katana running when starting it up what can i do please help


Check petcock for fuel flow from the tank. if you have flow. Make sure your carb jets are free flowing. Check the degree range on your float springs. Make sure your carb airfilters are clean and free flowing, I order for a motor to operate it need fuel, fire, and air.

I have a 2005 Honda Shadow Spirit 1100 that starts with the choke out but will never warm up. If you turn the choke off it stalls, if you give it gas with the choke on it stalls, If you try to start it...


this sounds more like a fule problem to me, try striping the carbs out and clean all the jets out, also check the fule it reaching the carbs and its not a blocked fule tank or filter as this bike is just not getting any fule to the engine after cleaning the carbs it should run ok, but just to be on the safe side get some cleaner and tip it into the fule tank also

My 2005 Katana is stalling left and right


Has the bike been sitting for any time longer than 4 days? 4 days is enough to clog idle jets. Cleaning the carbs if it has carbs, is the first defense against idle to low rpm stalls. Pull the carbs and clean them out. Definitley will help you out.

What would cause hanging revs/RPMs when the engine is warm? It's a stock 2000 katana 600 with 14k miles. The revs don't hang when the engine is cold.


sounds to me like your carbs may need cleaning and or a rebuild, i had a 750 katana that would do that as well, didnt want to idle when cold, then too fast when warm/hot, gave my carbs a good cleaning and it cleared up, the jets can get plugged really easily, could also be bad gas, any contamination and or particles can cause problems, especially if the bike sits without running for too long, hope this helps =)

My motorcycle cuts off when i release choke


The pilot jets in the carbs are clogged. This is usually a result of the bike sitting for 30 days or more with gas in the carbs. It evaporates and leaves a substance behind that clogs the pilot jets. The carbs will need to be cleaned to resolve the problem of running on choke and stalling off choke. The pilot jets meter fuel at zero to 1/4 throttle opening.
