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!

Bandit 1200s replaced the solenoid but no power when turn key on


Hi, Laz and the usual suspects are:
1. Ignition Switch not in the "ON" position.
2. Engine Run Switch in the "OFF" position.
3. Discharged battery, needs to be 12.5 volts or better and be able to pass a load test if necessary.
4. Check the battery terminals for damage or corrosion check the battery cables at "BOTH" ends for loose, corroded, or broken connectors, "INSIDE" and outside the cable harness, perform connector wiggle test and check cables with an ohmmeter if necessary.
5. Tip over sensor needs a reset.
6. Faulty ignition switch.
7. Faulty starter button.
8. Faulty kickstand or clutch pull in switch/sensor.
9. Starter control circuit, relay, or solenoid faulty.
10. Main fuse or circuit breaker may be blown or faulty.
11. Check for engine trouble codes.

Suzuki bandit 1996 will not start


If you have spark and still the bike is not starting ( and the timing on the spark is correct) make sure you got fuel flowing to the engine, if fuel is getting there and still the engine doesn't start, check the cylinder head and pistons and make sure you got compression. These are the problems that can cause a bike not starting. Hope it helps

Engine swop


You need a wiring diagram for a 99 and compare with the 91 and trace the power for each circuit.

My #1 and #2 cylinders are not firing. I have


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.

Randomly loses power and sometime dies


1st thing to do is have the system tested for the code that caused the check engine light to come, you may also have a fuel pump starting to fail or many other things, the check engine light may be the key. How many wiles on the car?
