Not certain on some of your terminology, passage plug? and 40 jet?
if you mean the syncronizing plugs, where the gauges connect too, then the missing one has the hose for the vacumn fuel tap, but this wouldnt foul 2 cylnders
1 and 4, run off one coil 2 and 3 run off the other coil, if one of those pairs is fouling it could be electrical.

My 1982 Suzuki gs550l isn't getting fuel to a cylinder i just rebuilt the carburetors my self


is it the carbs with diaphrams on top ? check they seated correctly ! if slide type then renove filter and get a rag to block slightly the cyl thats off as you run engine and see if it starts to fire , if yes then see if it runs without rag acting as a choker ! if not then clean and rebalance the 4 carbs so they open at same time !

Engine wont start it is getting spark and fuel any other reason why it won't start


You need 3 things for an engine to run; spark, fuel and compression. How is the compression? Is the spark plug new? If the plug is old, it could give a nice spark when you check it but have no spark under compression. Make sure the fuel you're using is fresh. If you give it a small shot of starting fluid and it fires up, your fuel delivery is suspect. In that case, you will need to remove the carb an THOROUGHLY clean it paying close attention to jets and passages. I always give people this warning: when cleaning jets and passages, NEVER use steel instruments. Use wood, copper wire or other materials that are softer than the material you're working on or you run the risk of ruining jets or even the entire carburetor.

I have a suzuki qaodrunner160 the motor terns over but wont start dont no howe to set timing up properly


The timing should not need to be adjusted. Most problems with the 160 Suzuki involve the carburetor. Make sure you have spark, pull the spark plug, hook the wire to it and ground the base against the engine. Crank the motor and see if the plug sparks. If it does, your problem is probably the carburetor. Pull the carb down and clean it. Pay special attention to the pilot jet and it's passages. Do not use wire to clean the jets and passages, use a spray carb cleaner and compressed air. Pay special attention to the passage in the float bowl that feeds the starter circuit. It will be a hole at the gasket edge of the float bowl that goes to the bottom of the bowl. There is a small orofice in that passage that is easily blocked, and when blocked, makes the engine real hard to start and keep running until the engine is warm. Good luck

Suzuki gt380 running on 2 cylinders carbs clean main jet clear could it be the coil but their seems to be a good spark


HI A TWO STROKE NEEDS ONLY THREE THINGS TO RUN, WITH THE EXCEPTION OF A POINT GAP AND CORRECT IGNITION TIMEING,

1 FUEL
2 SPARK
3 MOST IMPORTANTLY IS COMPRESON,


IF YOU HAVE A SPARK THEN I WOULD NOT SUSPECT A COIL THEY EITHER WORK OR THEY DONT WORK.
IS THE PLUG GETTING WET ON THE CYLINDER THAT DOES NOT RUN? IF YES THEN ITS NOT A FUEL PROB, IF ITS NOT THEN IT COULD BE A BLOCKAGE SOMEWERE, WHEN ITS RUNING PLACE YOUR HAND OVER THE BACK OF THE CARB, YOU SHOULD THEN FEEL SOME SUCTION, DOING THIS WILL RESTRICT THE AIR FLOW AND PULL FUEL UP THROUGH THE MAIN JET, ELIMINATING A FUEL SYSTEM PROBLEM ITS HOULD THEN FIRE AS YOU HAVE FORCE CHOKED THAT CYLINDER ONLY, IF IT FIRES QUICKLY REMOVE YOUR HAND AND ALOWE AIR FLOW, IF IT DOES NOT FIRE YOU MAY HAVE A COMPESION PROBLEM, REMOVE THE SPARK PLUG, AND USE A COMPESION TESTER TO CHECK FOR COMPRESION VALUES, ALL THREE SHOULD BE SOME WHAT EVEN, IF YOU DONT HAVE A TESTER PLACE YOUR THUM OVER THE PLUG HOLE RESTRICTING IT COMPLETELY KICK OVER THE MACHINE AND THE COMPRESION SHOULD BE FELT, MAYBE EVEN BLOWING YOUR THUMB OFF THE TOP OF THE CYKINDER HEAD SURFACE, REPEAT THIS FOR ALL THREE CYLINDERS IF THERE IS A SIGNIFICANT DIFFERRENCE TO THE LESSER YOU CAN THEN SUSPECT MECHANICAL FAILURE

Not running on #3 cyl' on my 1982 gs550


Not likely valve timing if it will run, cams are one piece so if one is right all are right. Have you checked compression with a gauge, or just by feel? Try swapping the sparkplug wire with the #1 cylinder and see if the dead cylinder moves with the wire. Also try moving the spark plug to another cylinder and see if the dead cylinder moves with it. If the compression is indeed good, the problem will be with the spark plug/ wire, or in the carb, these are the only things that can kill a single cylinder. The coils run a pair of cylinders so a bad coil would put out 2 cylinders at the same time. Start with the spark plug, I have seen a perfectly good looking plug, that would fire whun held to the head, but would not fire in the cylinder.

1982 GS850 Missing and Hesitation


fuel flow to cold pipe cylinder may be stopped with trash or sticky float.Resistor in plug wire for the one not firing could be bad. Try changing coil from one that is firing to the one thats not,see if that pipe gets hot or does the same thing still happen. coil ,plug wire, or fuel would be my primary focus.

My 1992 dr650rse has been stood for 4 years and it wont start.i've cleaned out the carb and jets,put in new spark plugs,cleaned the air filter and changed the oil.its got a strong spark and turns over,the...


The three required ingredients for combustion are; fuel, compression, and a spark (at the right time). When you cleaned the carb and the jets, did you hold each jet up to a light and actually look through them? The openings in the jets are very small and difficult to clean after than many years of sitting. Same with the carburetor; it needs to be completely disassembled and soaked in carb cleaner, then blown out with compressed air prior to reassembly.
Also, I would check the compression with a gauge. You need to see at least 140 psi on every cylinder, or it is not going to run, no matter what. If the compression is low, adjust the valve tappet clearances and see if that brings it up.
If you come up with the three required ingredients, there's no way it isn't going to run.

1200 bandit choking up under 3000rpm


Sounds the pilot passages and or the needl jet air passages are blocked on the carb for that cylinder that is not fireing. The carb should be removed from the bike and disassembled and dipped in carb cleaner. What I think works best for cleaning carb is Yamaha's Carb Dip I mix it 50/50 with warm water. All the rubber parts must be removed as they will be swell and be damaged by the dip. After you dip the carb will need to verify all passages with spray carb clean to make sure the fluid will make it through the intended passage.
