It could be many, MANY things......

-check the gas cap for venting

-check the needle jet and float

-check the petcock

-check compression

-check reeds

-check for spark/weak coil

-check for air leaks

-clean out tank...........

start with those. :bonk:

When you cleaned the carb, did you take out the pilot jet and check it for a blockage? Not the main but the small one next to it usually under a plastic cap. If the pilot is blocked it will start hard and wont idle down. If you dont have a reed cage behind the carb, and your motor doesnt have a window(power valve) on the right side you have a 85 or 86 motor.The reed cage is under the cylinder.

I'm counting the number of carb/fuel related posts about Suzukis in general, and the number is staggering.. Sorry, I don't have the answer for you on your bike as I am struggling with a similar issue right now myself.
