Question about 1991 Suzuki RGV 250 M

Open Question

I have a suzuki rgv 250 m.The problem is the carb slide on the left carb sticks.When bike is not running it is perfect and never sticks and the twist grip feels right.When bike is running it sticks and there is more resistance on twist grip and is not free.I have run bike with tank and air box off the bike and you can visibly see throttle slide sticking.It doesn't go back to tick over position.The cables are all in good condition and are free.This problem only occurs when it's running,when it's not running the carb slides work perfectly.

SOURCE: installing new grips

I use hair spray. -Cut the old ones off -Soak the clip-on (left) w/hairspray -Quickly slide grip on and align. Once it is aligned allow it to dry. -Soak throttle tube (right) with hairspray, slid grip on, align, and allow to dry. I guess this is probably a bad time to tell you about the R1 throttle tube (or BRG throttle tube) mod. It's a bigger throttle tube which means less twisting to go WOT. Late model Gixxers are notorious for a long twist to go WOT.

SOURCE: DRZ250 2007. throttle sticks momentarily

To eliminate which is causing the sticking:
Remove cable lug from throttle tube and roll throttle back and forth with 1 finger. It should roll very easily.
Now with cable still undone from the tube, grasp the cable lug and pull it straight out and slowly feed it back into the cable sheath. If it sticks, then remove carb and top of carb. Leave slide attached to cable and pull the cable out by the lug like you did before. Watch the spring compress and extend as you slowly let it back out. if it sticks again this time, you mostly likely have a single broken strand that is snagging on the coil shaped section of the sheath. If not, then you have an issue with the slide not freely traveling in the tracks, or the main jet needle not smoothly reinserting into the hole of the main jet.

Back to the very first test. If the throtle tube stuck at any point with the cable unattached, remove the rubber grip and check for cracks or breaks in the plastic throttle tube. With the rubber grip removed, and tube still attached roll it again with one finger. If it moves easily, take a look at the large round part of the grip. was it rubbing on the housing of the brake reservior?
let me know what you find, well get it figured out. - astrawoid

The noise it was making was probably the fuel pump. Check for a burnt fuse or bad relay.

Iv had problems starting my RGV too. Try changing both spark plugs. If that doesn't do it you should give the mechanic who restored it a call, may be a stiff carb slider on only 1 cylinder

RGV 250 m Backfire

Could be a crack in the boot between the carb and the head. this cracks usually from back firing. also check the exhaust flange to ensure that it is tight. Have you checked the valve clearances lately.

My dirt bike won't fire it's a 1992 suzuki rm125 it has spark compression. but it's not getting gas the carb won't shoot out gas it shoots out air the ring on the screw on the bottom is shot.

is gas getting to the carb? check in line fuel filter if you have one. make sure fuel shut off valve on tank is working properly. if you are getting fuel to the carb, try cleaning it and making sure the jets aren't plugged up.

Bike has no power up to 7000 rpm

check your gear ratio ie chain and sprokets if thay are to high of a ratio this will happen . as these bikes dont start to make power untill thay rev up hight . thay are tuned for top end revs and speed
