carbs need a good cleaning. had this same problem with an 82 GS1100. cleaned the tank as best i could, you can never get all the rust tho. finally had an idea to place a couple of old car speaker magnets on the outside bottom of the tank to catch any residual rust. been 4 years now with no more problem.

SOURCE: little sputter between 6-8 grand and then clears up only when you crack it wide open..

I have the exact same problem on my 02 R6, I installed a factory pro jet kit, micron race mr 400, K&N air filter and I have stutter between 6-8 rpms. I took the bike into the show 4 seperate times to fix this problem and nothing has been solved yet. My plugs are fine, my carb was cleaned, I don't know what else to do.

SOURCE: 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

SOURCE: How to adjust 2008 GSXR 600 Idle?

unless you have piped with atfermarket pipes it should not need done yet. Best way to control all timing and carb issues is with a power commander unit. Or have access to a durometer flow meter or Carb sync. This is not an EFI correct

2006 Suzuki GSX-R 600 will not idle backfires


Hi, Gary and the usual suspects are:
1. Severely discharged or a damaged battery should have 12.5 volts or more and be able to pass a proper "LOAD" test if necessary, you may have a preliminary reading of 12.5 volts or more but little or zero amperage the battery is faulty and must be replaced, AGM batteries fail in this scenario more so than lead acid batteries.
2. Check battery terminals for damage or corrosion, check the battery cables at "BOTH" ends for loose, corroded, or broken connectors, "INSIDE" and outside the cable harness, perform connector wiggle test and check cables with an ohmmeter if necessary.
3. Faulty main circuit breaker and or connections.
4. Faulty ignition coil and or connections.
5. Faulty spark plug, oil or gas fouled, wrong heat range or service type, wrong gap, loose in the cylinder head, broken electrode or insulator.
6. Faulty spark plug cables, leaking or broken, internal damage check for spark leakage in the dark.
7. Faulty ignition module, switch, CKP, MAP, CMP, sensor and or any connector in the ignition circuit could have corroded, loose, or broken pins/sockets
8. Burnt exhaust valve or air leak in the exhaust system.

I have a 2001 Suzuki GSX600f Katana that's having a problem when the throttle is applied, it seems to climb slowly and come down slowly. I know one carb has a vacuum leak is that the source of the problem?


Hi, Riley "ABSOLUTELY" and the usual suspects are:
1. Extremely lean fuel mixture.
2. Dirt, rust, water, or ethanol sludge in the fuel system.
3. Sticky throttle cables.
4. Multiple carburetors not in synchronization.
5. TPS sensor out of adjustment or faulty.
6. Wrong spark plugs for the type of service.
7. Throttle bodies not in synchronization (FI)
8. Faulty O2 sensor.
9. Clogged, stuck, or faulty IAC valve.
10. Aftermarket components not compatible with ECM.

1999 GMC Safari, rough running, knock detonation at wide open throttle


It seems like a problem with your ignition system. You could take a look under the hood at night / in the dark to see if there are any sparks between the spark plug wires and anything they touch or lay close to.
As the engine needs to be running during this test, please watch out not to touch any moving parts as it might lead to severe injury.

If you see any sparks - change the spark plug cables. If not, try to move the cables (with engine off) away from any metal parts they could be touching. Then start the engine and see if the problem persists. If it makes no change, you will have to start replacing the spark plugs, rotor + cap, wires and maybe the coil.

I was running it for the 1st time after this winter it was idling fine at high idle 1,200 rpm and i bumped the throttle and it ran really rough and will barely run at all, I just don't know what went...


sounds like it might have varnished gas in the system. I would change the fuel filter, clean out the lines with a good carb/fuel injector cleaner and fill the tank with fresh gas. I will run a little rough until the bad gas is run out. If this dont correct the problem then it might be in the fuel pump or fuel regulator areas.

I get it started it runs as long as you have it wide open but you let of the gas it dies


This might require adjustment of the hi speed carb screw, the lo speed, and the idling screw as well.
The engine needs to be good and warm, you need to be certain you have a fresh fuel mixture in the tank, and you should check the air filter because it too affects the way the saw will run at low speed and idle.

I would start with the hi speed adjustment screw since wi does start. Fire it up and run it a bit to make sure you have it warmed up.

You may need someone else to help you hold the saw while you make these adjustments. With the throttle wide open, turn the hi speed screw slowly, in increments of 1/4 turn, to the left. It may be just a bit off. The objective here is to turn one way until it sputters or runs a little rough. Then turn it the other way until the engine smooths out. Continue to turn in the same direction until it again runs rough. Then turn back about halfway between those two points.

It should run well at wide open throttle. Place your screwdriver in the low speed adjustment screw and turn to the left, in small 1/4 increments like you did before. The objective here is to adjust to the point where the saw will throttle up quickly and smoothly, and more and more from an idling position, or as close as you can get.

If you find you don't get that, and the ramp up is choppy and unsmooth, adjust in the other direction. Eventually you should get to a point where you have quick response to your throttle. You should get to a point where it runs without being wide open.

If it fires up easily and throttles up smoothly but won't idle, the you need to adjust the idling screw. Adjust it until the chain begins to move on the bar when you let the throttle go. Once you get to the point where it idles with the chain moving, back off the adjustment until the chain just stops moving.

Make sure the air cleaner is clean. You may have to clean the carb with spray carb cleaner while it is running at full throttle. If you do, spray a tiny bit at a time, as it will almost kill the engine.

Finally, after all this work, invest in a new spark plug, even if the one in it isn't that old.
