Hi and welcome to FixYa,

Offhand, some ideas you may want to explore or try using (though not technically sound):

  • weld another bolt on top of the defective bolts. The on-board electronics must be disconnected prior to the welding activity;
  • hacksaw a slot and use a wide tipped flat screwdriver;
  • use a blunt chisel or a throw away screwdriver to notch the head and jarr the bolt out;
  • use a long center punch to nick the head and jarr the bolt out.
Of course eventually the bolts must be replaced.

Good luck and Thank you for using FixYa. Happy Holidays.

    In the event of a sheared head, you can still remove the embedded half with an "easyout".

The bike was drop before I bought it an the top exhaust bolt broke how do I replace

If you can do a metalwork and have proper tools: cut out the old bolt flat; drill the hole in the center of the bolt with the same diameter (be careful on centering and depth); cut threads with a proper plug tap; use double-end bolt

If I do full headers and exhaust on my 08 Suzuki gsxr 600, do I need to do additional upgrades


Yes, your carbs will have to be tuned to your exhaust - this, usually, means upgrading the needles/seats in your carbs. I bought a Cobra exhaust system for my Suzuki (earlier model) and it came with the upgrade kit for my carbs.

Some people are happy adjusting the jets out further and living with poor fuel mileage, fouling plugs and lousy performance.

Do some research by calling your parts dealer and ask them if they have the carb kit for the exhaust you are wanting to buy. I use one of two online dealers; Bike Bandit or Old Bike Barn

Hope this helps. If you find this information useful, please vote on this post. Thank you.

Suzuki bandit 1200 W reg missing under load, will rev freely on its stand,I'm getting sooted plugs, tried new plugs,new air filter, carbs balanced, jets to lean.Also had petrol in the oil on 01 occasion.

Sounds like a mix issue and things are working and adjusted going into the cylinder.

Is your exhaust clogged? Is the condensation water draining correctly (your tail pipes are high so water collecting in the exhaust on cold engines will stay in the bottom. It could even build up if you only take short trips and your small drain holes are clogged. I've also heard of a kids sticking things into exhaust pipes before!

Finally, sometimes rust or other causes clogging. Unfortunately, I don't have an easy way for you to check it.

Gsf 400 bandit clutch needs replacing how do i do it?

Real easy, just drain oil, take off side case and remove the bolts.
Take it off as an assembly.
Make sure clutch plates and friction plates are positioned correctly.

Are you sure you need to replace the clutch?
I assume it merely needs a minor adjustment.

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.
