Return to idle problems

I have a 97 bandit 600 and after its ridden at say 40-60mph for a while when i go to slow down or even stop for lights it idles at 2000-3500 rpm.it starts normally, its just after riding the bike at these kind of speeds it happens.would it have anything to do with the cold as it was a very cold day when it happened?

    Your throttle cable might be sticking???? Can you rev the motor up high and let go, then will it idle back down. What I trying to say is the when you pull hard on the gas, the spring action slam the slide back down to idle position....???? Check it out, because my cable started breaking apart making it stick inside of the housing.

My 97 GSXR 600 idles high then slowly idles down


make sure the throttle cable is free moving and not sticking or slow to return. it could be a vacuum leak. you can check for a leak by spraying water around any intake seals in the carb area or brake fluid, if the idle changes then you found the area of the leak.

Gsf 600 bandit starts and idles but cuts out when pulling away


This could be ignition related or a fuel problem or even a combination. If you not mechanically minded you are probably better off taking it to a shop. If you would like to try some things first I would recommend changing the fuel filter and the spark plugs(make sure to gap them properly) if that doesn't work. After that it gets more complicated and the shop is your best best.

Dodge Dakota charging issues


You put pulleys on to increase power , but slowed down the alternator. Theres your sign. At idle speed the alternator isnt spinning fast enough to charge. So you can put original pulley back on, or a smaller alternator pulley.

My bike was running perfectly and then just stopped.


check for spark... if there is a spark it could be a fuel problem... check that the petcock is free flowing.. also try spraying brake cleaner in the air inlet... if it starts up that means that fuel aint flowing thru the carbs.. give them a good cleaning

Feels like a misfire


It's time to adjust the valves. You have tight valves and most likely need to adjust the cam chain. This is classic when the valves are tight. Most likely you can start it up when cold ok but after a few minutes performance deteriorates this being due the valve lash being to tight.
The miss fire is due to a lean situation.

How good is this bike for long tours?


The bandit 600 would be great for the twists and turns on european roads, but I suspect it might be to uncomfortable for long distances. It's not a touring motorcycle, and it's suspension is a bit stiff to run on long distances.
