My 98 1200 Bandit seem to have high current consumption. If I connect an ammeter inseries with the battery +ve lead and switch on ignition it reads 2.2 amps, this seems excessive. This is without the...


Bear in mind that even without the engine running there may be a number of things drawing power:

The ignition coil will be powered up
Does the bike also have permanent running lights on as soon as the ignition is engaged?
Your neutral light will be on (only .2 of an amp)
Does the bike have an electric fuel pump?

All these things may add up. You are only drawing about 25 watts, which is the power it takes to illuminate a brake light.

While I don't have data on the power consumption, it doesn't seem that excessive

It sounds like the battery is totaly discharged, using another form of electricity you could use some jumper leads connected to annothwr battery or power pack, if.

The small black box is possibly a relay. It may be sticking on, if so it will need a new one. Tell the dealer the same story and it should be a quick fix

05 Bandit 1200S idles low, run rough at low rpms,


Try buying new diaframs for your carbs, because of the diafram and piston operation, if the diafram becomes weak due to heat from your engine, and by the diafram not beeing rigid enough, it hesitates to lift the needle out of the jet causing the lack of fuel at low tack/rpm when throttling up or accelerating slowly.
