This bike came with a vaccum petcock so you might want to change the hose that may be collapsing and not letting gas go thru

If it is running like that with new fuel the problem could be plugged idle jet circuits. The carburetors will have to be removed, opened and cleaned. You will need compressed air for this job. Good idea to replace all 'O'rings inside carb at this time.

Hi JIM
remove the carbs and clean main jets slow running jets NB there is a small pin hole in fuel bowl under carbs use cleaner blow that hole that what operates the choke , so activate the choke and spray through till free from blockage and assemble .that,s it.

It runs good but can't get it to start in cold weather. What should I do 85 Suzuki gs 550.


Without much other information of what has been done, I would start with the choke system. The choke cable may be detached or far out of adjustment. With a helper see if you can watch the choke cable move the choke lever on the carbs when you move the choke lever to full choke. Cables do break and or stretch. If that is the case then reconnect, replace, or adjust as necessary. If the choke lever and carb choke system is moving correctly then the problem may be in the carburators themselves.

Good Luck

Bike starts on choke and runs.Turn off choke engine will not tick over,any throttle and engine cuts out.any suggestions?


Very common problem, You will have to remove the carb.s and clean them. Gas dries and turns to varnish after 3-4 months, this dried gas clogs up the jets and ports in the carb.s. If you chose to do this your self there are adjustment screws on the bottom do not mess with these screws. Just clean the bowls and jets, clean one at the time so you do not mix up parts.
