    Suzuki SJ50QT strange issues...any ideas?

    Hi all, so I have been fighting a losing battle with my suzi for a few months now. As a foreword, I am relatively familiar with 2 strokes, and passably mechanically adept.

    The little B***h will sit on the stand and idle all day if I let it, but as soon as it's given some herbs it will act like it's starving for fuel, it dies completely but will go back to idling if I let my hand off the throttle.

    So far, I have:

    -Pulled carb off, cleaned and blown all jets and passages clear, and checked float height which looks kosher.

    -Installed new NGK spark plug

    -Filled up with fresh gas

    -Replaced inline fuel filter

    -Cleaned stock exhaust, which appears to be nicely free flowing.

    -Sprayed CRC around carb manifold gasket, no change to engine speed.

    -Checked variator assembly just in case something funny was going on there, all clear.

    -Checked fuel flow to carb, fine.

    -Checked compression, feels fine.

    I am fast running out of ideas on what else it could be, it isn't acting like any crank seal issue I have ever encountered, as it will sit and idle fine. It might rev out on the stand for <5 seconds if I'm lucky, until it dies again. Do you folk have any ideas?

    have you checked fuel flow from the tank? coil breaking down under load? air flow? the filter may be collapsing .
    riding history into the future since ages ago.

    Yup, forgot to mention the air filter has been replaced recently, cleaned it once problems started happening to no avail. And fuel flow from tank is fine.

    Some scooters have a safety switch on the stand, so the bike wont rev with the stand down.

    Head gasket? Try the spray trick around the barrel. Nothing too flammable.
