I just cleaned my float bowl. Make sure to check your float measurements and the gasket on the bowl too. The gasket is a couple dollars depending how or where you order them. If the screws are stiff use PB Blaster to loosen them up with some tapping from a hammer with a screwdriver.

The flow bowl is stuck. Easy to fix. Take the carb off and take it and dump it unside down. Re-install and check it out. Or you can try to tap on the flow bowl on the carb. Float bowl is on bottom of carb, it is screwed in by 4 screws.

I just bought the same bike. I had to choke it hard to even get it to start. Seemed as if it was running lean. It sputtered under acceleration and would die when I pushed the choke in. My first step I filled the tank the tank with 93 octane gas. This is a high compression motor. After gas swap my bike jumped out of it's skin. No more choking and very smooth through the power band and does not sputter no more. A totally different bike from then

My bike backfires bad but it idles perfect and the pipe gets real hot fast


Could be you have air leaks in the intake manifold connections causing a lean burn situation, which can cause loud noises from the exhaust, fireing back through the carb/injectors, and the pipe and engine to get extremely ho
with engine running, spray carb cleaner over and around the intake connections. If you hear the engine change tone or smooth out in it's running, you have found the leak. Fix the leak and the other problems could go away. If the bike has been setting for a length of time, your jets and passages could be gummed and needing a cleaning. If there is a possibility of gummed jets, pour 1/4 to 1/2 can of SeaFoam into the gas tank, lock down the front brake and rock the bike back and forth to mix the gas and SeaFoam. Start the bike and run at a high idle for a few minutes. Shut it down and let it cool, then do it again. If it is gummed or dirty jets, they should start to clean up shortly.

Bandit idles HIGH when hot Just bought the bike! My bandit 1200S, 1997, runs smoothly when the engine is cool. But at hot temps when the bike warms up, the idle increases to 3000rpms. It doesnt want to...


OK.... firstly change the fuel cap, the tank needs to be vented correctly so pressure will equalise. Normally a rich fuel concentration will cause the engine to die not run high. From what your telling me it sounds like the throttle cables are not adjusted properly, if they are too tight the rpm's will not come back to idle. if this is the case you might be able to twist the throttle the opposite direction to lower the revs at idle. For the excess fuel problem, it could be what you say about the fuel cap, another thing will be the Needle and Seat might need changing or the float levels are not adjusted correctly. Whilst your there fit a good inline fuel filter, it will stop problems in the future.

The excess fuel is caused by the float levels being out of adjustment. Fix the floats and the dead spot may disappear. If not, pull the slides and then move the jet needle clip down one notch. With due respect, I would put the bike carbs back to stock. :)

Bike turn off while driving


I was on my way home from work when I stopped at the stop light and when I went to take off my bike just died. It started right back up but as I gave it gas it would die again. I managed to roll it out of traffic into a parking space. I tried the choke the fuel valve, but nothing worked. It would idle, but as soon as I would give it some gas it would just sputter and die. I got a ride to my house where I got my truck and came back to my bike. I started it up and soon as I gave it some gas, it died. I started it up again and gave it some gas and then it started working just fine. I revved it a few times, but it wouldn't die again. I drove it home and didn't have a problem. It seems to be running fine now. What the heck?? It only has 693 miles on it. It has almost a full tank of gas. What could possibly be wrong?,It's fuel or air related. If your bike didn't have any issues at all, no minor symptoms until it fell on its face like that, I'd wager something worked its way loose. Could be something is preventing fuel from reaching the carbs or something rattled loose in your airbox or carb boots. If something blocked off your air filter it would show those symptoms, or if you suddenly had a huge vacuum leak from a carb boot coming undone. I'd start by verifying you have fuel in the carbs by attaching a length of tubing and opening the drain screw at the bottom. Fuel comes out of your carbs, look elsewhere. No fuel, find out why it's not getting to your carbs. Perhaps your fuel line kinked.,,,
