Hi


I've had one for 7 years, 2000. Been pretty much as good as gold, only issue I ever really had was the float needles.


It's doesn't like sitting around not being used and can take a while to start if not been used for a month, a heavy duty has helped though.

I have a GSX600FK3. bought it nealry 6 years aago.

Reliability has been fairly good. It broke down not long after I bought it, had to be AA rescued home.

Turned out ot be a simple bad connectionon the battery earth lead.

I have just fitted a new starter motor, brushes wore out.

Other then these 2 problems its just been the usual tyres, chain sprockets, brake pads.

funny mine is same if left for few weeks.starts on full choke but very "fuffly" and nearly off pots and then clears itself to rev high 4-5000 on choke requiring you to ease it back to 2000ish rpm.runs OK after that but I suspect its running rich as its had a can on it and I bought it with original can refitted ..did u renew needles or dampers?

Havnt renewed anything on bike.had local expert ( arsh) to check bike and set valves for me .he cleaned carbs and set at same time as idle slightly lumpy ....got bike back and still lumpy but not as bad but for free he marked my exhaust and broke my front guard at mounting plate causing extension piece to rub tyre.... Found out the choke cable was to right at lever also...he has a bike repair shop and a legend locally .... :booty:

Starting my GSX600F is similar if I havn't used for several days. Turning fuel tap to PRI helps get it started.

Usually find this works best ifit hasn't been used for a while.

Full choke, in neutral, clutchin, dont touch throttle, hit starter, when engine starts dont touch throttle, wait for eenigne reve to get to 3500 or higher, slowly easy back choke to more acceptable revs, redie off witha little bit of cheoke, after a minute no choke.

Most of the time is starts without choke, about 5degC or less and it needs choke.

One potentially expensive problem I had with mine was a leaking petrol tank.

At first I thought the needle vales were leaking, there was often petrol on the floor in the morning.

I soon realised it was coming from the petrol tank drain pipe - it exits near the exhaust - great idea Suzuki, if the bike leaks petrol dump it on the exhaust!

If you open the petrol filler cap at about 3 o clock position you will see a small hole, this it to let water drain out of the recess.

The hole goes to a metal pipe that goes through the tank and out of the bottom.

Mine rusted through, and started to leak petrol when the tank was more then 2/3 full.

I had a quote for a palce that specialisedin tank repairs, then would cut the pipe out, insert a new one, and respray the tank to original colour, but £200+vat+postage both ways.

I did a successflu repair myself, inserted a length of copper pipe (car brake pipe) inside the metal pipe, flared the top end and used petrol resistant epoxy to seal it. At the bottom end I trimmed the old pipe level with the tank, cleaned it well. The I soldered the pipe to the tank and exisitng tube, using wet cloths to prevent heat damaging the paint work. It worked really well, the repair is barely noticable, 100% leak free, and cost me nothing!

Safety advice - due to naked flame for dsoldering, I drained all the fuel, then blew compressed air to remove fumes, left it overnight with filler cap and tap removed, folowing day blew air through again untill I was sure there were no petrol fumes remaining.

same way I start mine..runs very irregular until revs climb to 4k ish,then I feather choke back wait a bit and then bit more till I get 2k ish then off choke after 2 mins etc...maybe cause it has a vac operated fuel tap and no flow until running up revs ?? Would point to why putting tap to prim would help starting ??? Not happy as not riding at mo as weather that poor in NI at mo I'm waiting for the ark

:roll:
