Question about 1994 Suzuki GS 500 E

1 Answer

1994 Suziki GS500E Bike has been in storage for 9 years. Just did the carbs, hooked everything back up and it wont start. No fuel is reaching the carbs. No sure why- also there is air in the clear fuel line... like there's no pressure forcing it through the fuel valve and on the carbs. I'm pretty good at figuring things out... but this is my first time for this sort of thing.

Since you just did the carbs, my guess is that you forgot to hook up the vacuum line from one of the carbs to the fuel valve.
The fuel valve should have 2 lines on it....one brings fuel to the carbs, and the other uses the vacuum from ONE of the carbs to open it - the main idea being that it shuts the fuel OFF when the engine isn't running.
Hope that fixes ya up!

Gsxr 750 shoots flames


If the bike was running correctly when it was put in storage two years ago, I would start with the easy things first: As the previous poster suggested, install new, correctly gapped plugs, along with a new battery. Your bike uses an electronic ignition system, and it will not opporate correctly if you have a bad battery. The bike will miss, pop, and backfire, because there is not enough electrical power in storage (battery) to properly run the ignition system.

If these two things do not get the bike running correctly you will need to look at the carbs. Was the bike stored with fuel in the tank and carbs? If so, this is the most likely reason for the bike not wanting to run correctly. Flames from the exhaust are an indication of a very rich fuel/air mixture (a float could be stuck open (it can also be caused by the ignition not working properly and allowing unburnt fuel into the exhaust system)). Cleaning and reassembling mulitple carborators is not that difficult if you are careful and reasonably handy, but tuning them properly can be very difficult. You can save a lot of money if you rebuild them yourself, then take the bike to the shop to be tuned (The standard service rate these days is around $75 an hour)

1985 yamaha maxim 700 wont start no fuel. however i have fuel in the lines all the way down to the tee where it seperates in to the carbs. tank appears to have some rust in it and i did replace the inline...


I had the same issue with mine, just recently purchased the bike, previous owner said it ran but has been in storage a year and a half. I filled the fuel filter and everything and it would **** down the fuel but never even attempted to fire. I came to find out that there are two lines that come off the tank, the one without the fuel filter has a vacuum on it. So what we did was pour a little fuel down that line to prime the engine because it dumps fuel straight between the carb and cylinder. Took about 3-4 attempts but it fired and ran, just had to set the idle from there. Hope that helps you.

1994 ltf3004wd king quad fuel pump connections,not sure what outlets are what,winds over wont start,not really getting fuel to carby,have good spark,compression average,did go before though.


There are three connections to the fuel pump.
Fuel in/out at ends, the pipes should only reach to the correct ends. The IN pipe connects to the end toward front of the bike , OUT toward the back heading to carb.
A small connection on the back for the vacuum pipe from the carb.

This pump only spits the fuel along rather feabley, also check the gause on the fuel tap. When bleeding, remove the fuel pipe from the carb and blow into the tank in order to force the fuel through the pipes until all air is removed.

I had the same problem with my '81 850. Try taking the carbs off and clean them with carb spray. Take out the jets and spray them good. Then find ethenol free premium. The ethenol will gum up the carbs.

1994 GSXR 750 wont start


the carbs are proberbly blocked, you might have rust in your tank that will keep blocking, put an inline fuel filter in and get carbs cleaner, you also got a flat battery, give i little revs until it starts then adjust the idle

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.

Kawasaki zepher - stalled and now wont start


poor fuel, gummed up carbs. blocked fuel filter, if you in the US get some Berrymans B12 double the dose and put it in the gas, hopefully you can get it to turn and draw it through to the carbs, it should clean them out, also you can try the berrymans spray carb cleaner, remove air cleaner, make sure slider in carb is up and spray a bunch in.
did you have lights when it died or nothing at all?
