1977 Suzuki GS550 New to me hard time starting up (not a 550 L, but I didn’t see a plain 550 in the choice) I can start her up and she runs But sometimes I have to play the choke to get her going, even it’s warm outside. I the plugs and the two on right are oil-fouled what looks like crust? The two plugs on the left are decent, what I would normal.

If there is a way to upload I’d show you. I tell if there is enough oil or too by the port glass, but is it possible there might be too much oil in the I will be shopping for plugs, and oil after work tonight. worth noting, I pulled the KM air from the carb and they also very grimey, I cleaned them pretty by soaking them in some old gasoline and then air hosed dry.

There was a little bit of oil on the bottom of the intake ports where the connected. Not a lot, but looks I can smell a little gas when the runs, but she’s not burning oil out the although when she gets it does smoke a little the engine, prolly burnoff a minor leak that I located yet.

If this was a car, I’d in the towel, but this bike great otherwise, except it go past 70mph on the open not because it tops out, but like I’m not getting air or fuel fast enough, it has a governor. Where is the best to find gasket kit for this I am in Sacramento, and we seem to have a lot of or harley shops but not any that in classics like this

I get looks and fond memories, but actually carries anything for it.

chanmainor I am still waiting for my manual to come in the mail I start takin things I am not sure how to post pics but iam working on blogging my bike so I should be able to post a soon. what you say makes and will keep in mind the manual comes in.

First off, best source for parts is

They ship the parts out and in stock parts arrive

If you’re smelling gas when running, the first thing I for is a leaky intake valve.

You can usually shore up the leaky with valve lapping and a valve lapping tool which is basically a stick a suction cup on the end.

If you don’t a major gasket like a or base gasket, get high liquid gasket silicone. The you are looking for should be blue it comes out of the tube.

It makes gaskets without the great

Just be sure to use gasket spray on the surfaces before you put the gasket on.

The thinner you put on liquid gasket, the it cures, and the better the seal, but put it on so thin that it cures you assemble the parts!

Leaky can also cause that out effect, as you are losing compression.

I look at the timing advancer and make sure it’s freely.

Check the valve seals while you are in there.

Oil past these seals run oil into the cylinders and cause oil-fouled look in the plugs. Be inspecting these seals as it’s easy to puncture

if you couple that with a intake valve, you get the oil in the intake you were mentioning.
