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.

This bike has fuel injection and will not start if the battery is flat or has a low charge bumping it will not work
if you have had cold weather over the last five months I would expect that the battery is dead and will need replacing
when you have replaced the battery it should be fine

'bogging' down in low gear

your carbs will need a good service ,pinning the throttle wide open wont help either ,so open throttle slowly. I expect your needle valve in the carb has gone oval ,it should be round allso check the needle condition no scores, but first clean and adjust your pilot screw,best thing is to get a haynes manual to find the proper setting for it,but quite simple to do.

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

Suzuki bandit sticky gearbox

Stop riding the bike until you change the gearbox oil and oil filter. Yes, the oil is probably the problem. I am somewhat surprised that the pistons haven't seized yet. On the bottom or lower side of the gear box there will be an oil drain plug. Drain the oil and put in new oil. The oil fill hole is probably on the right side cover near the rear of the casing. The plug will probably have a dip stick to measure the oil level. Put in 10w40 motor oil. Ride the bike for a few hours then drain the oil to help flush out the dirt and grit built up in the gearbox. Put in fresh oil and a new oil filter if the bike has a filter.

Your bike is 18 years old and parts can be difficult to find. Your bike probably has an oil filter. If so, it desperately needs a new one. Google " vintage suzuki motorcycle parts " . I can not find a free service manual online. You may be able to buy one at

Suzuki 1200 bandit 1997 running rough at low revs

unlikely. If u don't work on your bike the best thing u can do is take it back to whoever did the plugs and tell them to fix it.

My suzuki bandit gsf250 will not start, there are spark and feul. can you help me

1.Do you have a fuel filter? maybe it's clogged up, and needs to be cleaned or replaced.
2.If no fuel filter, it could be you need to clean your carburateur.
hope its the first, but no worries if it's the second, it's quite easy to do.
hope it starts soon, so you can get back to riding.
greetzzzz, Gilbert.
