    Can anyone recommend a good troubleshooting guide? I have a '78
    Suzuki GS400 (kick-start) and it starts and runs fine when the engine
    is cold but after 20 minutes or so it dies when I'm stopped and it's
    hard to start again. I have to up the idle using the throttle screw
    and then it starts. I have to ride the whole way back home with a
    fast idle (if I turn the idle back down to normal the engine sputters
    and dies again). I use the choke as follows: on when cold, off when

    Any tips would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.
