This is Suzuki standard for a Pointy, sure someone will be along soon to say if Curvy is the same or not. Start at the standard air gap then see how it feels from there.

It is a bit too lean on the idle jet I expect or there is air getting into the inlet manifold.

There should be a glass view hole/ window on the left side, opposite the mufflers.
On my 99 V Star, that's where it is.
You might have to get on all fours and have the bike level.
It's hard to see if oil is new or very dirty.
A flashlight makes it easier.

You need 3 things for an engine to run; spark, fuel and compression. How is the compression? Is the spark plug new? If the plug is old, it could give a nice spark when you check it but have no spark under compression. Make sure the fuel you're using is fresh. If you give it a small shot of starting fluid and it fires up, your fuel delivery is suspect. In that case, you will need to remove the carb an THOROUGHLY clean it paying close attention to jets and passages. I always give people this warning: when cleaning jets and passages, NEVER use steel instruments. Use wood, copper wire or other materials that are softer than the material you're working on or you run the risk of ruining jets or even the entire carburetor.

Hi, use your key to open the side panel. You have to unscrew both battery posts in place, then slide the battery out. Don't loose the nuts that the battery screws screw into. Once the battery is charged, you need to put the nuts in place inside the terminals and carefully slide the battery in without disturbing the nuts. Then the screws will go into the nuts for tightening. Always loosen the negative cable first and replace it last to minimize the chance of shorting the positive to ground when attaching the positive cable. Please let me know if you have more questions. I have one of these and I have the manual for it.

Hi and welcome to FixYa!

Yes it may but as a first course of action I strongly suggest that you replace the fuel filter. It can be clogged causing fuel supply irregularities. If it still doesn't help then replace the fuel pump and you'll be good.

Hope this helps and thank you for using FixYa! Have a good one!

Thanks for using FixYa.

What you are experiencing right now is engine backfiring.

1. Use a higher-grade fuel for a while to help clean your fuel tank. You may have ended up with a tank of dirty gas that's causing some problems with your fuel injection.

2. Buy a can of fuel-injection cleaner that goes into your gas tank. This will clean out debris and dirt from the tank that's getting into your fuel line. Check with your motorcycle owner's manual or the manufacturer's recommendations to make sure this is safe for your particular motorcycle.

3. Check to see if the jets are clogged with debris or thick "gunk" that's causing your motorcycle to backfire. This will also cause problems with the fuel efficiently getting through the engine.

4. Take a close look to see if you have a dirty carburetor. The fuel will not be able to run efficiently through the engine with a dirty carburetor.

5. Visit your favorite motorcycle mechanic for an evaluation of the backfiring situation. Your motorcycle may need a complete engine cleaning to solve the backfiring problem.

I hope this helps. Thanks and good day.

Hi, Jonathan the vast majority of service, parts fiche, and owners manuals on the internet are "FREE" to download and all service manuals contain wiring diagrams in the back pages. The rest usually charge a modest fee of $15 and there is a handful of obscure, rare, obsolete, and very old models that are no longer or never were available and some were never printed in English. The Indian and Philippine markets are usually in E-book format only, for these rare occasions I shall look on eBay and find the cheapest one available. Most of the manuals will cover your exact make, model, and year otherwise one will be provided that comes as close as possible to your bike and will have most of the same info that an exact manual would have. If there is no $ sign after the manual link it is free to download.
