Question about Suzuki GSF 1200 Bandit S Motorcycles
Ive got a bandit 1200 sk2 and the oil light comes on once its warm but only on idle once the throtle is touched it goes off
Sounds like an oil pump issue. Can you hook up a pressure gauge to find out how much you have at idle vs with throttle? Probably not a real problem but you might want to replace it anyway. Obvious question here, check oil level?

SOURCE: oil plug
Bottom of oil pan...underneath the bike. Approach the undercarriage from the leftside of the bike, so you will not have to deal with the exhaust pipes. Remember to change your oil filter with every other oil change.

SOURCE: 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.

SOURCE: Backfire out of carb!
Remove and clean the carbs. Clean the air filter and install new stock plugs. Re-mount the carbs and then balance and sync them. Now would also be a good time for a compression check. Valves and rings do give problems sometimes but these problems show up first as a lack of power. Since you didn't report a power problem I doubt if valves are the problem.

ALWAYS have a fire extinguisher on hand when working on carburetors.
Remove the water trap bowl at the bottom of the petcock, (gas valve). Is there any water or trash in the bowl? Drain a cup of gas from the tank. Is there any water or trash in the cup? Dump it, clean it and re-mount it, ( not all bikes have a water trap bowl ).
Drain the carburetor. There should be a screw on the lower side of the carb float bowl. Remove the screw then replace it after the fuel drains. Turn the gas back on and wait a minute for the carb to fill with gas. Install a new stock NGK spark plug and try to start the engine. If the bike doesn't start and run properly then shut off the gas and remove the carburetor from the engine.
Remove the float bowl and clean the entire carb with a spray carb cleaner from the auto parts store. Wear protective goggles to avoid getting spray in your eyes. Spray into all the little airways and fittings in the carb. Remove the idle screw and the air screw on the outside throat of the carb and spray into the screw holes as well.

Be sure to put these two screws back in the same hole they came out of. IMPORTANT > do not tighten these two adjusters down. Only screw these in until they LIGHTLY seat. Now turn each adjuster one and one half turns outward. Before putting the slide back in the throat of the carb, move the clip on the jet needle one notch lower. Put the rest of the carb back together, clean the air filter and install the carb. Let the float bowl fill then start the engine. This process should get you back on the road.
