Question about 2001 Suzuki GSF 1200 Bandit S
On my 2001 Bandit 1200 , when changing the oil i found it had a substantial amount of gas in the oil, I just had my carbs rebuild, cleaned, and synced. After getting my bike back i was doing a oil change and new air filter. One problem i found is the guy put the cap for the air box run off tube on the gas tank vent hose, would this cause my petcock to malfunction and let gas run into the crankcase even though my carbs are set up right. Is there anyway gas could of got into the vacuum system and filled the crankcase that way.
No i would not expect it to, if anything blocking the vent hose to the gas tank would cause a vacuum and stoping fuel from flowing as easy , most likely a faulty fuel pump diaphram or incorrect float height.

The breather tube may warrant re-jetting but not re-syncing.

When you want to change jets for more fuel.. they actually come in Jet Kits. you can try different sizes but will have to change 3 knobs for proper mixture of gas/air ratio. The knob adjustments you just have to try one at a time for proper adjustment and only turn 1 knob 1/4 turn at a time. Tightening the knob makes less gas flow and loosening allows more gas. the three knobs are for 3 different ranges of RPMs. there is a low mixture knob, mid range knob, and high rpms knob. for example if your RPMs at idle through 5k RPMs are boggy, you can try a 1/4 turn and if it gets worse do a half turn back and ride again. do this off the street where you won't disturb traffic. it takes a while to get it running properly mixed.
