My fast idle lever won't stay open anymore. Let me know if you can look inside yours and see what holds it open or lets meet and I can take off the two screws and peek inside.

Its annoying to hold that and the clutch to start..

You shouldn't need to hold it to start your bike. I've got 2 k3 600's, and neither need the fast idle opened to start up, just a small bit of throttle for the initial start.

If you'd still like to peek inside, I'm free on the weekends generally.

it also acts as a nice cruise control on downhills. What year is a k3?

I don't really need it to start, just makes it a bit easier. At 48k, it needs all the help it can get

I might have to stop by this weekend on the bike

only the 00 has that lever, the newer models use the svta to prop the fast idle open

I have a 2000 750.

So this is the only year that has the fast idle lever?

k3 = 2003, it's a suzuki numbering system.

So both of my bikes have the fast idle levers, basically all it does is open the throttle plates a little bit for cold starts using cables.

i think its just friction in the "pod" keeps the lever in place

If it is just friction, maybe it just wore out from use? Here is a pic,

Yes, it's just friction and probably worn out from use. Wrap electrical tape around bar, put back together. Done.

took a little trial and error with how many times to wrap the "cam" and placement but I cut the electical tape in half and wrapped it twice around. Seems to work well, thanks
