well today i disassembled the carbs and held a match to them to find the particles. When i did that the particles caught fire and burned the bike,oh yeah,im not a dumbass,sorry retards. anyways to the people who are seriously trying to help all the jets looked great. The bowls had a few small particles in them so i cleaned the carbs with spray and air in all the passages till they were clean. Ill put the tank back on tommorrow and see what happens. I notices some one already removed the mixture screw caps from the carbs. The bike has after market exhaust do you think this could contribute?? thanks to all!

Did you remove the pilot jets and hold them up to light, after spraying carb-cleaner through them?

If not, you'll know what you need to do if it still exhibits the same symptoms when you fire it up.

Avoid getting carb-cleaner on any rubber bits: it causes them to swell and stretch.

Yeah, the aftermarket exhaust could cause that problem. To run right, a bike has to have balanced exhaust and intake -- sometimes, changing the exhaust for more flow messes up the carburation because the carb can't flow enough gas to match the pipe.

From your original post it looks like the bike was this way when you got it, right?

You have inherited the dreaded but common "I'm smarter than the factory engineers" syndrome. A lot of people think that putting on some aftermarket can will improve HP. They get this idea by reading advertisements from the people that sell this stuff. Sometimes these mods to do work but as often they only make things worse. Tuning engines is a delicate business. The manufacturers spend millions achieving good states of tune. Few guys working in a greasy garage are going to beat Suzuki's engineers at this task.

Some sellers of aftermarket stuff have actually been know to falsify those neat looking dyno charts that claim you're going to get a 10% power increase. Imagine that!!

You may be forced to buy stock jets and start over with the tuning if the problem persists.

You might try picking up a sense of humor as well, no one thought you were stupid enough to check any thing with a match. It was a joke. Anyway my bikes run fine, you can figure it out for yourself 'far as I'm concerned.

The bike probably has pod filters on it, too.

May the Force be with you...

You do realize that these are just old jokes and stories that everyone re-uses and that they aren't targeted at you.

You see the same threads take place when Airhawk, or Sarnali, or Cuddy, or any other forum member posts a question about repairs or bike problems. The match remark has been used, at least, 5-10 dozen times on this forum alone.

The "Jack up license plate" joke, which can also be substituted for "Jack up the seat", is a close second.

Again, just jokes. They've been used on everybody; you are just part of the forum. MO's social I.Q. is about 4, but the forums bike I.Q. is actually pretty good.

So, Fcat5,

Ya got them carbs cleaned yet?

BTW, if you don't have compressed air, you're wasting your time. The pressure from a can won't do it. You need to get Fujita on them things.

And hopefully, you haven't screwed up your carb timing. Assuming they were synch'd to start with.

He's probably still upset because someone had the SHEER AUDACITY to rib him mildly.
