Question about 2001 Suzuki GSF 1200 Bandit S
When idling and at low speeds, my 2002 Suzuki Bandit 1200 makes a clunking or clicking sound. The bike runs great otherwise and has full power and no hesitation as I accelerate. I don't know if this sound Is a symptom of something serious or if it's no big deal. The sound is off and on, some days are worse than others. I haven't been able to find where the sound comes from... Might be the carbs?

If you are a little short on "DRACHMA" and a Dealership is not on your list of fun places to visit then perhaps the list below will help soothe your worried mind so you can make an informed decision.

SOURCE: 83 suziki GS450 idle issues
the problem with the rubber was close but on the gs450 there is a metal insert that even if the rubber was rotted away the metal seals aginst the head so it cant leak. the problem is on the gs 450 suzuki used a cheap throttle cable that kinks behind the gas tank and kinks at the bend to the crabs under the set and the throttle system is a pull only not a dual cable pull push to always close the throttle. if you start the bike a wiggle the bend in the cable that comes out from the twist grip you will see it changes the idle. with either your finger or a screw driver and push the plate down on the carbs that the cable connects too. if the idle drops this conforms your problem. order a new cable from dennis kirk they have the revised one that has metal adjustment screw and metal clip in. better jacket casing as well.
