Christmas comes early. Go to the site below and you can download a free PDF service manual. Yours is the 1st one in the "Suzuki GSF" section of the list. 4 or 5 below that is a PDF parts diagram with part numbers.

http://www.carlsalter.com/motorcycle-manuals.asp Most manuals are in English but some are not. There is no way to be sure without doing the download. You can always delete it if in a foreign language.

Top rating due for this answer! Thanks Asel :)

How much fork oil do I put in


Dave, I usually measure the amount of fork oil that drains out of each fork and replace with that same amount. In my experience this is not necessarily a critical spec. All bikes are different, however. Many owners and mechanics will experiment with differing amounts and weights of oil. You may consult your dealership and try to get within a couple ounces of spec.

How are the front forks in my suzuki bandit 600 (1998) made up i.e if i take them apart to replace the springs and oil what will i find inside them ???


That is a good one. You are going to find springs and oil! Unless the seals are leaking, you shouldn't have to touch the forks. If the springs are shot, I would just get a new set of forks. But that is rare. You have to take them apart and spill the oil all over the place and get the seals off and the new ones on. There are books written about your specific forks, just have to dig. They tell you to get a pan like a wallpaper pan, and about 40 newspapers, and pull the tops off and catch the oil, then pull the springs out with all the washers etc, Not a hard job.Need about 2 bottles of fork oil, each one takes about 3/4 of a bottle. It is a premeasured amount, you will have to look that up too. Hope this helps.

I need to know the oil capacity of the front forks on my 1999 Suzuki Marauder VZ800.


FORK OIL
• Place the front fork vertically without spring.
• Compress it fully.
• Pour specified front fork oil up to the top level of the outer
tube.
Capacity (each leg): 490 ml (16.6/17.3 US/lmp oz)
99000-99044-L01: SUZUKI FORK OIL L01
or an equivalent fork oil
• Move the inner rod slowly with the special tool ten times and
more until no more bubbles come out from the oil.
09940-52841: Inner rod holder
NOTE:
Refill front fork oil up to the top of the outer tube so that bubbles
are visible while bleeding air.
• Refill specified front fork oil up to the top level of the outer
tube again. Move the outer tube up and down several strokes
until no more bubbles come out from the oil.
• Keep the front fork vertically and wait 5 – 6 minutes.
NOTE:
* Always keep oil level over the cartridge top end, or air may
enter the cartridge during this procedure.
* Take extreme care so as to pump out air completely.
• Hold the front fork vertically and adjust fork oil level with the
special tool.
NOTE:
When adjusting the fork oil level, compress the outer tube fully
without the fork spring.
Fork oil level: 153 mm (6.02 in)

Fairly used suzuki bandit


Hi and welcome to FixYa,

Most used 250s are ridden hard either as a starter bike or forced to max out playing catchup with bigger bikes. But unless abused, they tend to have longer usable life than the bigger ones. Often areas that would need your attention/check would be:
  • condition/level of the engine oil. An oil change would do no harm;
  • brake pads (front & rear);
  • carb and tank condition, A rebuilt/clean is a wise action;
  • sparkplug check/replacement. Note the color/condition of the ends of the plugs;
  • valve check/adjustment;
  • electrical system check which includes battery/terminals, major connectors (high amperage), regulator;
  • chain and sprocket. If adjusted against the stops, might be time for a replacement of the set;
  • fork oil seal.
Even if there are somethings you feel like needing work, the general judge wold be how you like riding the bike. Your body, sense of balance and riding style would dictate which if ever would need priority work/replacement/checking over.

Pls post back result(s). Good luck and Thank you for using FixYa.
