SOURCE: 94 GSXR 750 DIED WHILE RIDING AND WILL CRANK BUT NOT START

There may not be an in-line fuel filter on the bike. Most bikes don't come with them. Yes, the fuel petcock has two screen filters on one pipe and they can get clogged up. Remove the tank then remove the petcock and clean it. The gas in the tank should be dumped into a clear plastic storage bin so that you can see if there is any water in the gas as well as rust and trash. Your bike is 15 years old and the inside of the tank may be rusty. If so, Google kreem fuel tank liner “ or go to

www.http://www.4secondsflat.com/Fuel_Tank_Sealer.html

This will end the rust problem. Go ahead an install an in-line fuel filter. There is a drain plug on the lower left side of each carb. Drain each carb into a clear container and look for water and trash. You may need to clean the carbs but hold off to see if the other stuff fixes the problem.

Go to the site below where you can see a parts diagram for your specific bike. You will select the actual brand, year, model, etc., once you go to the site. Part numbers and prices are also shown. You can order parts from this site. In the event no price is shown on a particular part, the part is not in stock.

SOURCE: 94 gsxr 750w with choke on full still only idles

While pulling up on choke see if there is anyone movement at carbs. If not then choke cable is broken. One final test 1st. Find air intke. It should be under your seat. If you have aftermarket K$N filters or similar then it become more complicated. If you have an air box, place hand over hole and bike should idle faster. Same principal with aftermrket but harder to do, Zip Lock bags or grocery bags if Zip lock are to small should achieve same effect.

Make sure your air filter is clean, check the fuel filter and tank for contaminants.
More off the wall , the rev limiter may be faulty, is it a certain speed or a given rev range that causes the shutdown?
Look at the air filter first!!
Good Luck, Marshall

08 gsxr turned off while idling and wouldn't turn back over


When the engine is idling, the alternator is not charging. Starting the bike will drain a weak battery. A fast idle (1000 rpm or so) will quickly recharge the battery. If the battery is dead and the alternator is not charging the bike will not run. Check the connections at the battery. Remove and clean them. Check the main fuse and all other fuses. (The temp indication may be a false reading due to other problems.)

Got a suzuki gsxr srad 2000 model went out for a ride today since i brought the bike 2 weeks ago and i let her warm up with the choke up must of forgot to put it back down for the ride and now it wont...


Around 2000 was the first year for fuel injection for the GSXR 750. It really isn't a 'choke' in the true sense of the word. It's a device that causes a high idle similar to an 'enrichener circuit' to warm up the bike engine. There should be no damage to the engine by leaving it on for a short ride so I'm thinking there was an unlerlying issue with the bike that the previous owner left undisclosed.

Around 2003 that device was abandoned due to the advancement of technology in fuel injection and was no longer needed.

After typing this response I just noticed the original post date was in 2012 and I'm sure the bike has been either repaired, sold or crashed by now but maybe this answer will be helpful to someone else.....

Hi, i have a 2003 gsxr-1000 and when I go to start it up, it cranks and you hear the fuel pump start um and all but it refuses to ignite.


check for a big bluish spark...redish purple is no good, and also just see if the bike will push start if it does, but doesnt quite run right, then go to Auotzone and buy some Sea Foam pour 1/3 can into 2 gallons fuel and drive it around for 10 to 15 miles and let the stuff clean up the injectors.

What should a year 2000 gsxr-600 idle at?


800 - 1000 rpm but the needle should stay quite still, if the needle creeps up and down then you may have a carb/injector balancing problem
