Question about 1994 Suzuki GSF 400 Bandit

1 Answer

Engine loses power

My suzuki Bandit 400 ('93) sometimes suddenly loses power and the engine turns off. If I leave it rest for 10/15 minutes, then the enginge starts normally. It happened always when the engine was warm (enginge on for at least for 15 minutes), and always when I was going slow in the traffic. What could it be? What shell I check? Thanks for your help

Had a similar thing on mine and it was the leads breaking down. Bought new leads and plug tops. Probably need to go to an independent motorcycle spares shop should be able to help you. Check the plug type - if they are too cold they might be coking up. The higher the number the colder they are. Standard spark plugs are CR8EK. If you have CR9EK they are too cold. It's fiddly and awkward trying to sort out these problems. Otherwise it is a great bike!

2007 Suzuki Bandit 1250 won't start when hot


Hi, Z your bike starts great when cold but once it reaches operating temperature and the engine is shut off for a few minutes then you try to restart it and it will turn over but will not fire or it doesn't do anything, the usual suspects are:
1. When electronics get hot they build up resistance then stop working. It might be an ignition coil, stator, CDI unit etc. First, you must find out if the spark dies out. When the bike won't start, pull a plug wire off, stick a new spark plug in the end and ground the threads on bare metal while someone cranks the engine over. You should see a nice big blue spark between the spark plug gap. Incorrect spark plug gap will cause or contribute to a no start when hot issue.
2. Fuel Tuners have been known to cause this type of problem, disconnect it and see if resolves the issue.
3. Any engine management sensor could be faulty especially the ones that monitor temperature.
4. Gas cap not venting properly, improperly routed fuel lines they must always go down from the gas tank to the carburetor never in any kind of a loop this will cause a vapor lock. Clogged, bent, kinked, pinched or restricted carburetor vent lines will do the same.
5. Overhead camshaft valves adjusted too tight when cold, this will cause loss of compression when hot, except for pushrod engines they usually get looser when hot.

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.

Are the plugs sparking. Short them out to the engine while cranking engine to see spark at electrode. If they are not are you getting power to the coils. If they are sparking do they get wet when they are in place in the engine and it is run. Run it for a minute and remove plugs to check. If they are dry you may have a carb problem. If they are wet check the compression on the engine cylinders you may have blown the head gasket between no 1 and no 2 cylinders.
