I did clean my 250 kemco carberators .It idels wel,ref wel but does not want to go slow.Can you please advise me.

If it idles and revs fine, then make sure there is no binding in the throttle cables. Turn your handlebars, right lock to left lock while twisting the throttle open to closed. Everything should operate smoothly.

I inherited a suzuki burgman 400 scooter(not sure of what year it is) from my father in law. We can't get it started. I turn the key on and there is power but I can't seem to find the right switch...

This may not help but here goes.

The button for starting bikes is usually on the right handlebar under the light switch. I had a Suzuki that wouldn't start unless you pulled the clutch in (Left handlebar, lever in front of grip). Make sure the red kill switch is on too (right handlebar).

Good luck

The front tire and the handle bar are not turning together. When I turn left or right the handlebar is all that moves. The front tire is just kind of "there". How do i get the two connected so...

Depending on how old your bike is there is an allen head or a nut at the top of your handlebar that when adjusted properly tightens the stem of the handle bar. You just have to tighten it down. Most use metric allen wrenches or sockets.

The bike idles great as long as the handlebars arestraight or turned to the right but when you turn the bars to the left it start reving up. check the cable it as no signs of a problem.

The cable is probably fine but it is not properly routed through the frame . When you turn the handlebar the cable is being pulled out of the top of the carburetor causing the motorcycle to rev up. You may have to remove the tank and experiment with cable routing to keep the handlebars from pulling the carburetor slide up from the idle position.

Basic questions

yes both lights are supposed to be on inc low/high beam. the pass switch is supposed to flash the main beam as you said,check the loom at the lights for loose wires or butchery. the choke is on the left hand side of the fairing by your knee. to adjust the tick over if you look under the carbs on the left hand side you will see a wheel on the end of a cable adjust this to turn the tick over down...hope this helps

No problem just done top end rebuild

Just ride it normally. Avoid super high revs when the bike is not in gear and using the power.
