Question about Motorcycles

Open Question

My suzuki carry idle sounds fine - even idling a little high - but the engine occasionally seems to have a hard time "catching" when I try to start it. I know it's not flooding at that point because I'm turning it over for the first time...Also, I'm not 'sitting' on the starter or I'd wear it out. Is it the carburator?

The air fuel mixture sensor is probably starting to fail. You need to have a simple diagnosis done at the shop and then have it replaced - they are usually not much a reputable mechanical shops. When the motor warms up your air/fuel mixture changes hence the rough idle etc. Hope this helps.

Ihave the same experience try to remove the idle jet located next to the starting jet. But be careful in removing it as it will break easily ( you will need a flat screwdiver to do it ) clean it with a wire that closest size of the jet. change your fuel filter ang drain all the fuel inside before putting it back. make sure to put some air pressure on each holes on the carb so it flush all unwanted particles inside and pls dont use silicone in sealing the rubbers inside.

SOURCE: My battery light in dash and high idle.

it may mess up the voltage to the sensor giving it false information and changing the idle speed.

Hi
I would suggest that you have the valve clearances checked.

Also, check that the carb is clean. Pay particular attention to the PILOT JET as this opperates the idle circuit.

SOURCE: Yamaha TTR 250, Idling Problem

check the inlet manifold rubber has not seperated from the aluminium part of the manifold ,this is very common on the ttr 250 and will cause the exact problem you have,if it is seperated either replace it or repair it with some good quality rtv sealant avoid sillicone sealant as it is not petrol resistant and will turn to jelly.adam

Suzuki super carry 1.3 engine revs high low high low high low when clutch is put down engine revs very high


wow no year car stated nor a country x10 worse.
welcome to our USA forum!
the country with ZERO, carry cars. not a one. here
and due to that , no books here nor coverage at mitchells. either.
That is a G13 engine, (not m13) is my 1st guess.
Most Suzuki's with tiny engine and run a map sensors, not MAF
so is called SPeed Density system.

if yes, the that means ALL vacuum leaks cause fast idle.,
armed with that juicy fact, we know why it races.
you never said and actual RPM so no Tachometer?
only 2 causes. a huge vacuum leak
or unlikely the ISC stuck wide open with gunk inside, (clean it?)
ISC is idle speed control.
old suzuki's had man killler ISC software, my 91 did it.
and all others like it........
it would hunt idle like mad with any vacuum leak.(of any kind)
today this is very *******, this mode. (hunt)
toyata cost them $1billion in fines for this same deal.

but Clutch drivers have no problems with idle hunt, "skills"
what year/country.?
please showa photo of engine. ?
and win. a win/win
you win and I win not guessing all that.

fact 2 , is that that hunt tells me the ISC is moving fast.
so is not stuck. (99% says R3PO)
unplug ISC see the hunt end? sure.
the ECU has lost its wits. from..... this....
it sees a massive air leak (vacuum map readings ) and then (dumbblly ) hunts it like mad, (bad Firmware code) but real.
i can demo this is seconds hood up.
causes?
1: vacuum hose fell off.
2: same hose cracked.
3: brake booster diaphragm cracked, sucking air big time)
4: lots more,. even gunk under throttle plate blocking it open.
and more. lots more. can cause lots of vacuum leaks.

High idle and transmission catches at about 8 miles per hour every time after I stop and then accelerate catches really hard then runs fine high idle in park


may be a faulty tps (throttle position sensor)

would check the idle speed sensor at the same time

My 1994 Camry idling problem.? It's a 1994 Camry V4, 2.2 L. After i changed the head gasket, my car idle became too slow. It seems like it doesn't have the cold engine starting idling anymore, i...


If it runs fine and the idle is the only problem you could try idling it up some with the idle set screw on the throttle body it sounds like it may be a little bit out of time those toyotas have a fine lins on the timing.

I have a 1987 Susuki Samurai, 1.3 engine. Cold start is idles at 2000 rpm up to 2200 rpm. Is this normal? Its seems a little fast. How do you adjust the cold fast idle speed? Thanks, Randy


Yeah it sounds kinda high. There is no adj except for the idle screw on the throttle, the computer does the rest, if it has one. If not, then you can adjust it some how. If carbureted, check for 2 little screws in the front, and check the choke, If throttle body, then just the idle screw, the idle should be around 1000. Hope this helps.

How do i stop my suzuki tf125 from idling to high or to low


Sound like an air leak between the carb and cylinder. Try tightening all fittings. Replace the rubber carb fittings if hard / cracked or chipped.

Even though you probably don't have that many miles on the bike, or if you do have a lot riding time on it, it sounds to me like you need a valve adjustment. That's a high reving bike for that engine that works pretty hard so you might have 1 - 3 loose valves.

Trouble starting, engine won't catch


Try pulling the engine coolant temp sensor, They often crack not sure why but the ceramic tip cracks makes the car hard to start, the car's idle may race while shifting gears, and often smokes. The sensor is on the right side of the engine when looking at it on the head. Easy to change and get too
