06 Apr 2014 - Ignition Question

My little 400 has no spark, I pulled a spark lead from each coil and tested it with no results.

I checked ...

05 Apr 2014 - Compression Test

I picked up a Bandit with a "seized motor"
But I can crank it over  :duh: I'd like to do a compression test but my repair manual says to do a compression test only when fully warmed up  :stickpoke:
The carbs are old and dirty so I'd rather not go through all the effort of trying to get t...

So after some reading and research, and a good opportunity, I am soon to be the owner of a 92 red bandit 400. Im pretty excited. Apart from wrestling with the carbs and tuning, the biggest thing that the bike will need is to be repainted.

The tank is good, not faded at all, but the frame...

02 Apr 2014 - Newbie

I'm the new guy. I finally decided that Suzuki wasn't going to bring back the GS series so I'm now the proud owner of a 2005 Bandit 1200. I stole this M/C because the P.O. let it sit (3800 miles only) and the carburetors had to come off and get degunked. Not much different than a GS (except the damn...

Hi Guy's

Can Anyone please tell me how to remove my Suzuki Bandit GSF 1200N Governor, MY bike only goes to 204 km/h, i really would like to remove my Governor but don't find anything on the internet.

Thanks in advance

From what I've read, it's very hard to remove the damper rod because it requires a special tool (or something home-made).
However I was just wondering.. you don't need to remove this to replace the spring, right?
I can just do it like the following video? :

I need some help with this weird issue because I'm at a loss.
Whenever I steer to the right, even by 5 degrees angle, the RPM on my B400 will rise +- 500rpm. (it will accelerate).
Obviously this sounds to be a perfect case of throttle cable too tight. However turning rig...

Hi, I have issues with leaking Keihin carbs in B600 1996. Sometimes, one or two of carbs are strongly leaking. I've cleaned all carbs, set float height to 17mm. After this setup, carbs were leaking even stronger. Later I swapped needle valves and checked that nothing leaks when floats are depressed ...
