    Help2 Advice on 1981 Suzuki GS250T

    Hi Everyone
    I have just bought my bike yesterday for £350 with long T&T. Seems to ride ok until i am in the 40mph bracket and it seems to not be firing correctly or has flat spots and won't pick up. If i turn the throttle after a couple of seconds it starts to pickup, but not immediately. Now i know it is an old 250 and i have not rode a bike for over 10 years, but i am certain it should be more responsive than it is. Any help or advice would be great.
    Thanks
    Bryski

    P.S. Just joined the site, looks great. By the way i live in Manchester, England. Not quite as glamorous as some places on here.

    Welcome to Pashnit!.

    And the symptoms you describe indicate it's time to to pull the carbs and clean them. I suggest Yamaha Carb cleaner for your Suzook.

    You shouldn't need to replace any parts.

    Be sure to count how many turns the pilot screws or out.
    Do this my marking the slot location, and slowly turn each screw in untill it lightly seats. Count the turns as you do this and note it some place. Clean the carbs, but be sure to remove to pilot screws so you can get some cleaner into the air passages.

    Your problem is a lean fuel mixture, caused by dirt or sledge in the carbs.
