i am having a problem getting my 87 gsxr 1100 started after it is hot when i try it sounds like the batt is dead ( or like a car is out of time ) rotates real slow the only way i can realy get it started is to open the throt. about 1/4 and it will eventuly start if it dont run the batt down buy then actuly it has even started it when it is cold when i pull the choke out it pops thru the carbs about 4 times and then it will start but my real concern is when it is hot

i am open for any suggestions

When those bikes get too hot...they will not kick back over till it cools down!!

When it's not hot how does it start?

I bet you your batterey is low on acid....The older gixxers,like mine, bake their batteries in the summer..a whole lotta heat under there. I replaced my batterey yesterday..it was doing the same thing...

Thanks for the replies

It was the starter the brushes we GONE the only thing there was the metal plate behind them

so i replaced the starter and the batt. and it starts like a new one

Again thank you for the replys !!!
