bogging 01 GSX600F

the bike has been sitting for 2-3 years and i want to give it a complete FULL hauling tune up....i had to drive the bike like 8 mile to a garage where i can work on it....but im not the one to get into tearing it down and doing it myself...little things yes...but i need to take it to a "TRUSTED" shop so they can do the tune up and get her running like she just came of the showroom floor bsck in 01..does any know a place near the southside where i can trust there work....

it will help you prepare for the task, if you attack it thinking its as easy as a gsxr to work on you will lose your mind, 1st step is to do it with a nearly empty gas tank, the tank is a major pain to undo/reconnect the fuel lines and a full tank makes it much worse, then the throttle cables/carbs are not easy to remove/replace , if the bike has hi miles you should check the valve adjustment if it hasnt been done, the service manual states that those need to be checked alot morre frequently than some other sportbikes, the valve cover is tough to get out even after you unbolt the support bar that goes across the top, if you take the carbs off the main thing you need to do is unplug the pilot jets, this keeps it from idling when the choke is turned off, you usually need to poke a thin wire through them all to get gas to flow, i use a short piece of guitar string to do this as its very stiff and small enough

tank is off and empty...the bike has 10.5k on it.....i have to take it in....i wish i had someone work on it from a garage where i can pay like $500 to do this plus a quick tune up for me...i work 60 hrs a week and shit i way to busy and not enough experience dealing with sportbikes to do it myself....

but the bogging/dying idle is most likely caused from plugged pilots...

okay today i took the carbs off and cleaned them right and good a new fuel filter....took the bowls each one cleaned them one by one....and took the top plastic caps with the annoying rubber seal cupping things cleaned then one by one.....put it back together and stared it....STILL BOGGING....so i noticed the fuel filter wont stay full...so the petcock valve is not allow enough fuel into the fuel rails......can that be a cause why is bogging and back/misfiring?

i believe so...i took the thin nozzle put it in the holes of them and sprayed through them and the cleaner came out the other end so i believe they got blown out....i didnt take anything else apart....its runs/misfiring when it is "choked" but when i slide the choke up to "run" is dies out quickly....

you likely only cleaned the main jets/emulsion tubes and only partially

there are tiny cross holes in the sides of the brass tube. youll need to poke thru these as well

near where that went into the carb body there is a smaller jet (low end) which comes out of the body as well, use a socket not a screwdriver to remove and be gentle doing so. youll need to fish a thin wire thru this to clean it out then rinse with spray

if you can post a pic of a carb with the bowl off
