Hi guys, my motorcycle is a 1998 V Z 800 Suzuki Marauder, my problem is that the front cylinder only starts to heat up after some riding.
I've been told that , that's how the bike is supposed to be, I don't buy that, that's not how a manufacturer would produce a motorcycle.
any information would be appreciated thanks.

"heating up" is not really important.
Not unusual or surprising that one heats up a bit faster than the other.

Does if feel like both cylinders are firing ?
If not, that should be fairly obvious and THAT would be a problem.

the choke system operates with a plunger,as you pull the choke the plunger opens a passage and vacumn pulls fuel into the carb throat.........the top cap on my carb was loose so i lost vacumn and it wouldn't pull fuel.

so between the back of the carb and the combustion chamber the intake manifold has to be warm enough to atomize the fuel until then the enrichener dumps fuel in to power. i think the cable is the problem. it starts as one then enters a splitter becoming two and one goes to each carb.

I guess Gordon might not come back...as stated its not unusual for a front cylinder to take more time to heat up....its getting all the airflow. If the bike runs with no problem other thwn that I wouldnt worry.
