    Suzuki GS question

    My first bike was a GS 450L (1986). I know a guy with a GS 750 (1982). He is having a carb issue. I still have my service manual. Are the carbs the same (just twice as many?).

    Carbs are very problematic on the early 80s GS Series bikes from Suzuki. While I don't know if the carbs are the same (as you ask), I do know that they become plugged very easily from gasoline remaining in the carbs leading to poor running issues. My success with my GS650E (w/4 carbs) only came after removal, deep cleaning, and re-synching the carb. A sure sign that carbs need cleaning is if the bike runs better with the choke on.

    A nice set of 29MM smooth bores can cure lots of problems. You just have to use pod air filters.
