03 gsxr 600, isit fuel injected???

i purchased a 2003 gsxr 600 recently and i was starting it yesterday and i realized it has a choke lever on it. now i thought that it was fuel injected. so is it or isnt it fuel injected?. keep in my mind this is my first suzuki after defecting from team green so please dont be too harsh on me.

Yes it's fuel injected. The choke lever isn't REALLY a choke lever. Newer model GSXR's have an electronic fast idle that holts the throttle SLIGHTLY open for a few seconds after a cold start so it doesn't just go straight to normal idle speed and die on ya when it's cold. That lever does the same thing, it just slightly opens up the idle for cold starts.

so it opens up the runners on the throttle bodies. okay thats cool i was kind of pissed when i saw the choke lever. i didnt notice it when i bought it because i wasnt looking for it because the dude told me it was fuel injected. thanks duff

Yeah, I think all from 2001+ were fuel injected? Even though 2000 is the "same" model I think it's carbed.


Heh, when I first checked out my bike and he used the choke I brought it up. "Wait!? I Thought it was fuel injected?"

Yep. They used the same type off the 99 750, while the 750 went to a full ECU system in 2000.

It was hard going back and forth between my '03 and the wife's '99... kept forgetting the "choke"...

No it doesn't. It has 4 throttle bodies. No carbs anywhere.

What the fuck are you smoking?


To clarify - Fuel Injection was introduced in:

'01 on the 600
'98 on the 750 (mid-model, looks the same on the outside as the carbed '96-'97 apart from the gauges)
'01 on the 1000 (which was also the first year of the 1000 - the last 1100 was the '98)

And NO, none of them have both FI and carbs... But YES, the lever that looks like a choke lever on the early FIs is fast idle. Same as turning the idle screw on the left side of the bike but easier to get at.

Re: 03 gsxr 600, isit fuel injected???

is the fast idle lever really easy to push/pull. If so, it might not be connected to the cable that changes how fast it idles...

It doesn't seem to be loose. But then again its never worked since I've had it and I've never felt one that's works..so I guess its possible.

I gave the ghetto cruise control a try and it doesn't maintain highway speeds.
