I read the articles, and i only hear the 'ticking' sound described when i twist the throttle really hard from idle. I've never driven a diesil car/truck so i dont know what to look for, i doubt that the bike behaves like it has a diesil engine. However, the bike feels like it has much less power than it used to (haha maybe i'm just getting used to the power it makes and it doesnt scare me as much
) and when I let off the throttle at ANY time, the rpms come down Very slowly... meaning rich fuel mixture right? I just had the valves adjusted, carbs cleaned and new plugs installed about 2 months ago... I'm thinking the easiest way to find out if the shop i took my bike to f-ked up something is to check the plugs, am i right?

what do i look for on the plugs that would indicate a rich fuel mixture? and does it sound like theres a problem with my cct?? i'm worried it sounds like a very looong and involved process to change it out.

thanks in advance gurus

An easy way to test whether you are running rich is when you are able to easily and immediately start the bike in the morning without having to use the choke... you will also smell gasoline and your exhaust tip is black as shit...

As for the CCT sound... not too sure what to tell ya...

If you are around the south OC area... drop by with your bike and let's check it out!

<font size="2" face="Verdana, Arial">When you pull the plug and it looks like it's all black at the prong then you are running a rich mixture. If it looks like white powder then it's a lean condition. But like Migz pointed out you will be able to tell by the smell (if it is very severe). As for the CCT it is a pretty distinctive sound that it makes. Think of it as rattling. Put your ear to the right of the bike when you are sitting on it and listen. How was she running when you got it back from the shop? If it was like that then, then I would suspect they might have done something wrong.

Just bring your bike in for service for the CCT. Its a factory recall so the work is done for free. I brought my bike in for it and other parts were also messed upped so they had to fix those too for no charge since the CCT was the cause of the problem. For you running Rich i dont know bout that.

yes, most defently go with the APE CCT, I'm not sure if a suzuki dealer will install that instead for you(probably not) but its worth a try if they will do it correctly.

If you look close at it, they are the same part number..
Any of the ones they list for a 96-99 750 or a 97 -00 600 will fit your bike..
