Removing the floats on your Suzuki GS500 is the most effective way to diagnose fuel level problems. The floats are responsible for maintaining a constant level of fuel inside the float bowl, and poorly functioning floats can have a detrimental impact on your motorcycle’s performance. If you are experiencing poor jetting, locating and removing the floats can help you decide if you need to re-jet your carburetor or if your motorcycle’s problem can be resolved by a simple inspection and cleaning.
