Question about 1997 Suzuki GSF 600 S Bandit

1 Answer

Gsf 600 electrical

Hi All, First post on here so hope i have come to the right place. If not sorry. I have a Bandit S reg, i recently stripped the headlights indicators off to enable me to get the frame sprayed to get rid of the rust spots. when i brought it I think the previous owner did some electrical works to it so don think that is as standard. Came to fit the Speedo and Tacho back on an couldnt tell which wire went where as it was (orange/green, black/red,black/white). now the engine wont switch on, I put the ignition on both neutral light and oil light comes on but when the ignition button is press the headlight comes on instead, also when the indicators are put on the headlight flashes away. Back light doesnt come on when lights are on. Any ideas? ive taken the Tacho off. anyone got any photos of the back of their tacho under the silver bowl to see which wire goes where. **** Just went back to switch the engine on and it came on - Headlights came on left indicator worked however went to put it to right and twice the engine cut out and now it has gone back to the above. ***

When you reassembled the bike did you pinch any of the wiring harnesses? Trace the wiring through the bike and make sure everything has a solid connection between their respective power sources and activation switches. Alot of time bikes run wiring under the gas tanks so you need to make sure that you didnt cut anything when pputting it back on (if you removed the tank)

SOURCE: My suzuki gsf 600 bandit 1999 wont start.

Hi and welcome to FixYa,

Initially, try with the sidestand folded up and / or the clutch lever pulled in.  Likewise determine if there is a clicking sound when the start button is pressed:

  • if there is a clicking sound, locate the starter relay. Follow the big cable from the battery's + terminal; it would end in nother terminal of the starter relay:
  1. turn ignition ON and kill switch to RUN;
  2. short the 2 big terminals of the starter relay. Expect a big start. If the starter spins, startr relay is faulty.
  • if there is no click, then the safety interlocks are preventing the relay from engaging. Check the neutral switch/wire and sidestand switch/wire.
It is of course assumed that the battery is fully charged and that the battery cablles/connectors are clen and tight.  Postback result(s) of tests.

Good luck and thank you for asking FixYa.

SOURCE: Fault with electric start on my Suzuki GSF 250 Bandit

Check that the clutch is in, kick stand up, and neutral light ablaze. Then try your start button. When you had it running and hit the button, the starter engaged at a slower speed then the bike engine was turning, which led to the stall. The stall means your starter works. If the starter works when the engine is running then it is wiring. Check your kick stand wiring along with the clutch wires which plug in on the handlle bar or where the clutch cable enters the engine.

I need to know what the positions are on the fuel stop **** are on a p-reg 600 bandit s suzuki

They usually are this:
horizontal is off
handle pointed up is reserve
handle pointed down is on
I have seen pethocks (spelled wrong on purpose) work differently though, usually after market ones.

Will a sump off a 600 bandit fit a 1200

The pumps have different part numbers > The 600 is #16400-06B01 and the 1200 is 16400-06B20
Chances are, even if the pump "fits", the 600 will not have the volume of oil flow needed for the 1200 motor. Starve the 1200 of oil and plan on a new engine in the near future. Sorry.

A “very helpful” rating for this answer? Thanks!

Sprocket covers

sorry mate but they arnt interchangable due to the fact the 1200 has a hidrollic clutch...other sprocket covers can be fitted from a number of other suzuki 600 bikes, eg:GSX F...GSX R...(600,750) hope this helps
