Question about 1997 Suzuki GSF 1200 Bandit S

Suzuki Bandit 1200 has trouble starting when hot

I have a 1997 1200GS which has trouble starting when hot. It sounds like the battery is very low. If I wait a few minutes it starts and runs normally. I plan to have the battery load tested and also go over the bike looking for any loose wires, but thought that I would ask if anyone has had a similar problem.

    The carb has a diaphram primer pump. Don't crack open the throttle when the engine is hot because this will send a shot of gas into the system and flood the cylinder. Leave the throttle closed when starting a hot engine.

I have 1200 bandit with fuel getting into oil


Check the Compression in all 4 cylinders, if the compression is low on one cylinder, squirt some oil or or WD40 down the bore and immediately recheck the compression. If the pressure goes up a fair bit you have a broken ring, if not you could have a burnt valve. If your getting fuel in the oil it definately sounds like a ring problem

unlikely. If u don't work on your bike the best thing u can do is take it back to whoever did the plugs and tell them to fix it.
