Without much other information of what has been done, I would start with the choke system. The choke cable may be detached or far out of adjustment. With a helper see if you can watch the choke cable move the choke lever on the carbs when you move the choke lever to full choke. Cables do break and or stretch. If that is the case then reconnect, replace, or adjust as necessary. If the choke lever and carb choke system is moving correctly then the problem may be in the carburators themselves.

Good Luck

1981 550 suzuki one cyclinder is dead has spark and fuel and bike runs but start extremly hard seems cold blooded


Check compression of cylinders, all should be close the same. Swap spark plugs and check if problem cylinder moved. If bike sits for long periods of time then most likely it will be a plugged carburetor.

Suzuki GS650G Katana Has trouble starting in cold weather


Make sure choke is closing all the way. And check fuel filter to make sure there is enough flow. Also some suzukis had cold weather limiter knobs on carb you slid in or out if temp was above or below 50
