Check the jets in the carb, there might be a blockage there, especially the main jets, check that the needle and seat are allowing the float chamber to fill to the correct level, check that the fuel tap and the in-tank filter are clear of any blockage.

Hi. I have a 1985 Gr 650 which is an australian version of the Tempter and I,m after an starter motor for it and I believe there there are other model Suzuki,s and Honda,s that will fit the GR 650. Could...

Get the make and model of the starter, ie Nippon Denso / Hitachi etc go online and do some detective work because most aftermarket sellers list all the fitments. Try ebay, suzuki owners forums, motorcycle swap meets junk sales etc.
I've just been online for a starter and see there are rebuild kits.

While riding my 1983 suzuki tempter 650, the back wheel locked up, and now the motor dont turn,only a little in gear when i try to move the wheel.

Can you fet the bike into true neutral? It sounds like a transmission problem where something broke and jammed the gears. If it locked the engine as well that suddenly, you may well have a problem with the craknkshaft to boot.
