Question about 2006 Suzuki SV 650
Has been in my garage for 2 yrs, added Sea Foam to gas & then 1 gal of Prem gas. Will start then shut down immediately.
Replaced battery & keep cleaning spark plug which comes out black, any ideas?
Unless you drained the tank and carbs when you put it away for that length of time you are going to have to strip and clean the carbs out. Unfortunately as petrol evaporates it leaves a varnish type material behind. Over time this will build up. Carbs run on very fine tollerances so you are having rich running issues. Probably one of the bypass circuits is clogged. Time patience and plenty of carb cleaner I'm afraid then run some in-tank cleaner through for the first tank or so. Good luck.

Make sure your choke is fully in closed possition> Sitting up for that long could have allowed vanish to not allow it to seat and cause an overly rich condition
