Question about 2006 Suzuki GSF 1200 Bandit S ABS

1 Answer

Using Oil

Because of an extended warranty I had been getting free oil changes on my 2001 Bandit 1200 every thousand miles. Now at 9,000 miles, I have had to add almost a quart of oil since 7,000 miles. I hear this year´s model may have a problem with too-large oil holes in the pistons. Is that true and will Suzuki fix the problem?

Bandit 1200 oil in crankcase


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.

transmission and engine share the same oil, so it is changed when you change the engine oil, and for that reason I change engine oil on my bike at 2 thousand mile interval.

I have 1200 bandit with fuel getting into oil


Check the Compression in all 4 cylinders, if the compression is low on one cylinder, squirt some oil or or WD40 down the bore and immediately recheck the compression. If the pressure goes up a fair bit you have a broken ring, if not you could have a burnt valve. If your getting fuel in the oil it definately sounds like a ring problem

'Sticky' gearbox on 2004, 1200 Bandit


Have had the smaller brother of this bike, here is what I found, try using 10W40 full synthetic oil, make sure the clutch is adjusted exactly right, if that doesn't help the engagement dogs are worn and u need an overhaul, which isn't that hard, about 10 hours work and $200 in parts.

Best oil to put in a bandit 1200 1998


For the Bandit 1200 use only regular motorcycle oil. Stay away from synthetics for this particular engine. The Bandit has a weak clutch and using synthetics will cause slippage and premature wear. I recommend either Suzuki's oil 10-w40 or Yamalube 10-w40. I have over 30,000 miles on my Bandit with no problems at all. I hope this helps.

I have 1200 bandit 2001 that smokes


I guess it depends on a number of tings - how many miles has it done? Has it been regularly serviced? Have the oil change schedules been properly observed? Is the correct amount of oil in the bike? Not too much? Has it been thrashed or is it one-careful-lady-owner :)
If it has had a hard life, even though it is a bulletproof engine, the rings could be gettng tired and you are getting excess oil in the combustion chamber. They are popular with the 'drive em hard' fraternity...
Do a compression test to be sure... easy and cheap to diagnose.

Will a sump off a 600 bandit fit a 1200


The pumps have different part numbers > The 600 is #16400-06B01 and the 1200 is 16400-06B20
Chances are, even if the pump "fits", the 600 will not have the volume of oil flow needed for the 1200 motor. Starve the 1200 of oil and plan on a new engine in the near future. Sorry.

A “very helpful” rating for this answer? Thanks!

Oil plug


Bottom of oil pan...underneath the bike. Approach the undercarriage from the leftside of the bike, so you will not have to deal with the exhaust pipes. Remember to change your oil filter with every other oil change.
