Sorry mate but they arnt interchangable due to the fact the 1200 has a hidrollic clutch...other sprocket covers can be fitted from a number of other suzuki 600 bikes, eg:GSX F...GSX R...(600,750) hope this helps

They're close, but not exact. Besides the farings, you'll need to get; or in some cases make custom mounting brackets. It's not a straight bolt up.

Need to know how to change 85 lowrider alternator. Fxr. And help would begreat

  1. Replacing the Alternator
    • 1 Remove the drain plug located under the clutch area of the primary chaincase and drain the chaincase lubricant into a catch pan. Remove all mounting bolts from the primary cover and slide the cover from its locating studs. Loosen the primary chain tensioner and inspect it for wear (this is a logical time to replace the tensioner shoe, since you are in the case).
    • 2 Lock the primary chain where it enters the bottom of the clutch drum. Remove the engine sprocket nut and slide the compensator/sprocket assembly from the engine sprocket shaft. Slide the reluctor bowl off the engine sprocket shaft. Push the stator plug through the hole into the inner primary case. Remove the stator mounting bolts and slide the stator from its support boss. Remove the stator from the case.
    • 3 Slide the new stator onto the support boss and orient it so that the stator wires are closest to the stator plug hole in the case. Install and torque the new stator bolts to factory specification (refer to manufacturer's torque sheet). Do not re-use the old bolts. The bolts come pre-treated with Loctite and are designed for one-time use. Insert the stator plug into the plug hole and snap it into place.
    • 4 Slide the reluctor bowl onto the sprocket shaft and bottom it onto the shaft shoulder. Align the splines on the shaft and the compensator/sprocket assembly and slide the assembly into position. Install the engine sprocket nut and torque to factory specification for your model of Harley. Adjust the primary chain tensioner to factory specification.
    • 5 Scrape the old primary gasket from the case. Harley Davidson gaskets are produced with a print-o-seal feature that melts and '"cooks" onto the case surface. Insure that all of the old gasket is removed from the machined surfaces. Use caution when scraping the gasket, as the cast-aluminum cases are easily gouged, leading to poor sealing and leaks. Install the fresh gasket onto the locating studs, followed by the primary chaincase cover. Torque the primary cover to the proper torque and in the recommended pattern according to the specification sheet for your model of Harley. Remove the inspection plate and add new chaincase lubricant. Replace the inspection cover gasket and re-install the inspection plate.

I'm restoring a 1981 Suzuki gs850 , I'm pretty

Personally I would locate an illustrated parts manual for your motor and determine if they are interchangeable. Also, check with a Suzuki dealership for interchangeability of the coils. I am a Harley man personally and I would not even think of putting coils on my motor that are not made for it. Bikes are funny creatures and often very unforgiving. Buy OEM parts made for your particiular model motor and you will be very happy. Don't risk it even if there is a chance they are interchangeable. Are you willing to burn up your ignition system for it?

I hear a cluttering noise coming from my sprocket. I believe the front is worn pretty badly. Does anyone know how to get the front sprocket cover off? I think the clutch cable may be the problem but I...

The front sproket normally last for a very long time so I am pretty sure it is not the cause of this problem.Try to adjust the chain tension and this may solve this problem.Also if the rear sproket are worn out or it could well be the chain that needs replacing.Hope this gives you an idea.

I need to convert my bandit 1200 fluid clutch to cable can anybody help ?

I don't understand why you would want to do this, but I suggest you see if a sprocket cover from a 600 bandit would fit in place of the existing one. The sprocket cover is the bit behind the alternator housing on the left hand side of the engine. Since the 600 is cable clutch, i think it works on the worm gear principle, that may solve the problem.

Shifter noise on my 1985 sportster

The Sportster has a "cassette" type transmission. The transmission can be removed without the necessity of splitting the cases to get at it like most other motorcycles.

To remove the transmission one must remove the primary drive component that include the compensator sprocket, the primary chain, and the clutch assembly on the left side of the engine. On the right side of the engine, you'll have to remove the rear brake master cylinder, the front chain sprocket cover, and the front chain sprocket.

Going back to the left side of the engine and remove the four bolts that hold the transmission front plate (access cover) to the engine cases. There are two "pry points" on the access cover. Look around the edge of the cover and you will see them. Pry the access cover off gently and the transmission will come out of the engine cases. The shifter shaft will remain in the cases. When you reinstall the transmission, mark the shaft in such a manner that you can tell what position the shifter shaft finger is pointing. It should be level pointing to the rear of the engine as the transmission is reinstalled in the case.

If you can find a Clymer's manual #M428, it explains in detail the removal and repair of the transmission.

DL650 Oil Leak...what can it be?

this is on the chain side of the bike, isn't it? i hope you always made damned sure your chain wasnt too tight when you adjusted it... i doubt this would be a problem on the wee, but on my gs1150, i had an offset sprocket so the chain would clear the larger gsxr rear tire i had i can't remember which size the tire was(185?), but my front sprocket was offset 3/8. well, the chain was too tight on that bike and the output shaft toasted the bearing, and that made some neat damage to my engine cases, the symptom i got was lots of smoke coming from there, oh that and the oil leak that looked a lot liek what you describe. however, greywolf knows the strom way better than me and his suggestion of the clutch pushrod seal makes sense. on the gs, the clutch is on the opposite side from the sprocket, so it's an impossibility. so check the clutch seal, also check your output bearing seal. dont fret my horror story, as i said, unlikely on a strom, and never happened on a gs1150 either, only happened because: A- too tight a chain B- offset sprocket.

Buyinf question/maintance costs

All bikes are expensive to service. The Legend is easy to work on so buy a Haynes manual and order OEM parts from dealers or Bike Bandit. You might have an ignition coil or fork seal to go bad. I've had my Legend for 9 years and have had one of each. Every 2 years change the hydraulic fluid for the brakes and clutch. If you use fully synthetic oil in the engine it will last 6,000 miles or 1 year as will the oil filter. Replacing spark plugs is difficult but they last a long, long time. Valves are shim type and rarely need to be reshimmed. If you replace the front sprocket you will need a new gasket for the sprocket cover. Trust me on that. Good luck and ride safe.
