Has it been standing for a while? It sounds like the fuel has caramelised from standing. All fuels today have so much ethanol that they only last a few months. You could try a can of Sea Foam in the tanks then run it then block the intakes on the carbs so it causes a vaccum and cleans out the pilot jets. This is a long shot, but it might work. If not you need to take the carbs apart and clean them. Take all the jets out and replace with new then let the carb bodys soak in carb cleaner. The pilot jet air ways are really small and get blocked easly make sure they are clear before you put the carbs back together. Good luck. If it wasnt standing check the timing is advancing and retarding.

there is no way for fuel to get passed the rings right? So if you filled the head with fuel, it would just work its way down the exhaust pipe and out the back, just like its doing. The only way of getting fuel into the sump is; if you have seriously bad rings (it would be burning oil) OR if its getting through the breather system. I don't even think if the injectors were on full-time, it still wouldn't get into the sump... very strange. Are you sure its not coolant? A serious coolant leak can be completely unnoticeable from the outside, but catastrophic to the inside. __________________

if engine, has sight glass, if mpty oild filter not primed, fill till sight glass is just over mark, turn engine over no choke no throttle to allow oil to get round with not running throtle pressure, run a few seconds, then let stand recheck at sight glass on foot brake side, top up if needs be to line nr top of sight glass and close cap.

Sounds like the chain is worn out and needs replacing if there is no more adjustment!A good idea is to replace the sprockets at the same time, as they wear along with the chain, and will cause a new chain to wear out sooner.

You need a new chain, a worn chain will not match up properly with a new gear/cog. You can do this yourself, the chain should have a link that will come apart.

Hi, led will only light if they are wired in the correct order, earth to earth and live to live, you have replaced the switch to no avail, the only thing left is the flasher relay, this type of indicator must be fitted with a relay suitable for led indicatorsThe original relay would not be suitable causing problems as you have described, it may be you have the correct relay, led aftermarket relays are not so reliable as original equiptment as used with standard indicators, and sometimes burn out as they are solid state an obviouse burning to the silicone backing is a give away to its condition, if it shows signs of burning or any other damage replace it as so if you still have the original one fitted, lastly you dont say which model your bike is, on some suzuki motorcycles the relay is not just. A flasher relay it has multi functions and correct wireing of the relay is not so easy, unfortunatly suzuki is the only manufactor that specific led flasher relays are not listed for and a universal 1 must be used with the above difficulties

Check for 12 Volts leaving the switch and broken wires.

Look at the sidewall of both tires. There will be a 'MAX PSI' embossed on the tire. It will probably say Max 45 PSI. At 45psi the bike will ride like a rock. At 15psi it will ride really squirrely. Find a psi at which you feel the bike handles well and rides well. One rider may weigh 125 pounds and the next rider may weigh 300 pounds. The best psi for each rider will be different due to weight. Chances are that 30 to 35 psi will do the trick.

Sounds like transmission troubles. The bike is trying to jump out of second gear. At this point, at the very least you have a bent shift fork and rounded dogs on the transmission gear. The cases will have to be split to determine exactly what pieces need to be replaced.
