    I used a gas treatment before it was stored and there is new gas in the tank now

  • hufftusmc Sep 06, 2010

    i used a gas treatment and drained the tank before it started sitting. i have also changed out the battery and the air filter is clean. could the injectors be bad?

If it sounds different I would check the air filter box. Make sure the filter is clean. Another thing you can check is spark on the plugs. If it is idling rough then it is a spark plug, or maybe a coil pack. And it could be bad gas. Depending on where in the US you are. Gas goes bad really fast in the southern states. I would start with those three. Good Luck!

If the fuel wasn't treated then the problem is plugged up fuel injectors due to gas that has turned to gunk. drain all the fuel add about 1/2 can of carb cleaner to the fuel and make sure the tank is full of fresh fuel

Is this carberated? When you store any type of item for a period of time with a gas engine, you should use a bottle of Stabil. It goes in the gas tank. The left over gas that is in the fuel system will gum everything up if not drained or stabil is used.

    You could have plugged injectors. Or possible plugged fuel filter.

My cbr 600 f2 1993 had been sitting for a long time


Sounds like the carbs were not properly cleaned or set up. Choke should cause the cold start rpms to be higher than what you are experiencing. Application of choke to a warmed up engine will usually cause the engine to stall.

Gsxr 600 1999 rough idle white smoke underpowered knocking pinki


I,d probably do a compression check on this old girl. sounds like she needs some attention to the top end.The valve stem seals sound like there spent.Oil is seeping past the seals into the combustion chamber and being burnt off,thus explaining the rough idle and white smoke at start-up and dissipating as the engine warms up.Probably time to spend a bit of coin keerossi.Think of it as an exchange, money for thrills.hope i've helped you out a bit....tabby...OZ

2003 SUZUKI GSXR 600 SHIFTING QUESTION


just input , not resolving anything. but i used to have a similar issue with mine, but i had a gs 750t . it has around 20,000 on the clock. sometimes it didnt want to shift into 1st from a dead stop, i had to let out on clutch, then pull clutch again , then it went right in. the gears are so fine cut in the bikes that once they get worn, even the shift fork, it gets a little harder to get into those gears without a little coaxing. by the sounds of it (without knowing the mileage) i dont think id worry too much. especially if its shifting up and down through gears without grinding of any sort. if the clutch is ok on it (being an 03) i assume its still touchy , ull be ok

Have a 2003 GSXR 600 JUST BOUGHT BUT WHEN RIDING IT FEELS AS IF BIKE WANTS TO DRIFT TO LEFT, AS IF BIKE WONT DRIVE A STRAIGHT LINE, NOT SURE WHAT THE PROBLEM IS, FEELS LIKE REAR TIRE COULD BE A BIT...


have the alignment checked at your local bike shop. chances are the rear tire might be, as you stated, installed a little crooked from a tire or chain change. if they can't figure it out i'd go after a bent fork or even as far as having the swingarm / frame checked for straightness. as a fellow rider we have enough to watch out for, we don't need to be thinking about the bikes stability so play it safe and have it checked!

hope this helps!
