Could also be water in the fuel - the main jet hangs lower in the fuelbowl and would be stuck into any water before the water level got high enough to mess with the idle circut in the carb. As your accellerating it would require fuel from the main jet more and suck more water instead of gas. Clean your carbs and gastank. Check for the wiring first. lots of water could mean electricity not going where it needs to be.

Maybe some water in an electrical plug. Remove the tank and dry it all out with compressed air or WD40. Work around the coils and other wiring. Also where the wires come out of the engine case.

How can I tell Which Year My GSF 400K is?


Everything you want to know about the bike can be found in the VIN number (letter). In this case pay attention to the 10th digit (reading left to right). This may help too: http://www.suzukicycles.org/Bandit-series/GSF400-Bandit.shtml

Will not idle


blocked carbs, get a good fuel system cleaner, if you in USA get Berrymans B12, double the dose and mix in tank. run til hot then leave to stand overnight. also if you can remove the air cleaner to get to carb intake, get spray carb cleaner an chuck a load in there. also check to see if you have a fuel filter inline

Flodding carbs


sounds like a sticking float in the carb....remove the bowls and check for sticking, bad float, or needle and seat partially open...might be just some dirt in there
