Question about 1996 Suzuki GSF 600 S Bandit

Open Question

My 96 suzuki gsf 600 bandit has intermittent power loss issues. It generally happens when oppening the throttle. At idle it will stall or almost stall but generally gets past a point, where it then will rev on up to redline. When started the bike will run slow and then it will snap into a higher rpm. When riding at speed the issue seems to come on randomly; loss of power, downshift, further power loss, etc. I tore the carbs appart, dunked, cleaned, replaced a few seals, but not all. The problem seems to have been unaffected. Plugs look reasonable but not new and I have not done much looking at the electrical system.

    It seems like something switches or changes and it goes into this problematic mode. It gets better and then gets worse and I really haven't nailed down anything more helpful.

SOURCE: raise the seat

First take off the seat, turn it upside down, unscrew the two screws and two bolts that hold the two parts of the seat together. Separate the pillion and rider seat (takes a bit of wiggling), now you can concentrate on the riders seat. undo the four screw that hold all the rubber gromets down (make a note of the direction they are facing), and unbolt the two small bolts on the front. The seat should now come apart, move the bracket at the back of the seat down a hole. Re-attach the two halfs of the seat at the front but this time one hole up. You should see a gap between the two halfs. Put the rubber gromets back on, this is where I went wrong the first time, TURN THE FRONT TWO 180 degrees and leave the back ones how they are. Screw everything back together and you have one raised seat my long legged friend.

SOURCE: Suzuki 2009 DR-Z 250 won't rev past half throttle

I would have it checked out. I know that it has limitors on it but it shouldn't be half throttle. It should rev as soon as you start twisting the trottle.

1990 Suzuki GSF 400 Bandit will not idle


Hi, Anonymous check your idle circuit passages for contamination also you need to make sure you have no intake leaks by spraying some Brake Kleen, Contact Cleaner, Starting Fluid etc. around the intake manifold and seals, if the RPM's go up or down significantly then you have a leak that needs to be fixed before you can continue with the carburetor adjustment.
The engine should be at operating temperature with the choke off to set the idle between 950-1050 rpm. Turn the idle skrew clockwise to increase the idle speed and counterclockwise to decrease the idle speed. If you have access to your air-fuel mixture skrew you may turn it as well, if not there is a video below on how to gain access, make sure you start with clean or new spark plugs. Gently turn the air-fuel mixture skrew clockwise until it starts to bottom out "STOP" do not over tighten as it will damage the taper on the end, now back the skrew out 1-1/2 full turns to establish a starting point start the engine and check the idle rpm's and turn the idle skrew accordingly for 950-1050 rpm if necessary, turn the air-fuel mixture skrew 1/4 turn at a time and let the engine settle for about 10 seconds, turn the skrew clockwise for a leaner mixture and counterclockwise for a richer mixture, you are seeking the highest rpm your air-fuel mixture skrew can acquire without going past 3 full turns from bottom then resetting the idle skrew back down to 950-1050 rpm If you can not detect any rpm change and can not stall the engine by turning the air-fuel mixture skrew all the way in then your pilot/low-speed jet is too big and needs to be replaced with the next size smaller. Final adjustment should be made with a clean air filter mounted to the carburetor.

GSF 600 won't idle and has poor throttle response.


Hi, Anonymous electrical contact cleaner is what you need and the usual suspects are:
1. Fuel cap or fuel tank is not venting properly.
2. Fuel filter clogged.
3. Fuel line pinched or kinked.
4. Float needle and seat sticking.
5. Float level too low.
6. Carburetor bowl vent line clogged/blocked/pinched.
7. Idle adjusting screw set too low.
8. Air/fuel mixture screw set too lean.
9. Idle port, transfer ports, slow air jet clogged.
10. Slow fuel jet clogged.
11. Faulty fuel pump.

Feels like a misfire


It's time to adjust the valves. You have tight valves and most likely need to adjust the cam chain. This is classic when the valves are tight. Most likely you can start it up when cold ok but after a few minutes performance deteriorates this being due the valve lash being to tight.
The miss fire is due to a lean situation.
