Question about 1997 Suzuki GSF 1200 Bandit S

1 Answer

Will 190/0x17 tire clear the chain, swing arm, etc. on a GSF 1200

I need to replace the rear tire on my '98 Bandit GSF 1200S. A local shop told me "everybody" is running the 190/50 17 on their Bandits. It appears that clearance for the chain, swing arm and other hardware is already tight. 5mm on each side might cause problems. Anyone running 190/50 x 17 in place of the 189/55?

Depends on the make of tyre whether u will have clearance or not. U should b aware that 190s r not made to run on 5.5 inch rims and doing so stuffs up the tyres profile and will adversely effect the handling.

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.
