Question about 1992 Suzuki GSF 400 Bandit

1 Answer

Suzuki GSF400 Bandit problems with tick over.

I recently purchased a 400 Bandit that was restrice to 33 BHP. It has done 34k miles. The bike was running very rough, so i fitted a new set of un-restricted carbs, since then the bike wont tick over properly. I have gave the carbs a good clean, i have bought new spark plugs, new choke cable, new injection needles, but im still having problems with the tick over.

When i rev the bike it takes a long time to return to tick over, then once it reaches tick over point, it starts to descend even slower until it finally stalls.

As you have replaced carbs you will need to retune for fuel intake also check its getting enough air ie.. air filter has been changed or is clogged

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

1990 Suzuki GSF 400 Bandit will not idle


Hi, Anonymous check your idle circuit passages for contamination also you need to make sure you have no intake leaks by spraying some Brake Kleen, Contact Cleaner, Starting Fluid etc. around the intake manifold and seals, if the RPM's go up or down significantly then you have a leak that needs to be fixed before you can continue with the carburetor adjustment.
The engine should be at operating temperature with the choke off to set the idle between 950-1050 rpm. Turn the idle skrew clockwise to increase the idle speed and counterclockwise to decrease the idle speed. If you have access to your air-fuel mixture skrew you may turn it as well, if not there is a video below on how to gain access, make sure you start with clean or new spark plugs. Gently turn the air-fuel mixture skrew clockwise until it starts to bottom out "STOP" do not over tighten as it will damage the taper on the end, now back the skrew out 1-1/2 full turns to establish a starting point start the engine and check the idle rpm's and turn the idle skrew accordingly for 950-1050 rpm if necessary, turn the air-fuel mixture skrew 1/4 turn at a time and let the engine settle for about 10 seconds, turn the skrew clockwise for a leaner mixture and counterclockwise for a richer mixture, you are seeking the highest rpm your air-fuel mixture skrew can acquire without going past 3 full turns from bottom then resetting the idle skrew back down to 950-1050 rpm If you can not detect any rpm change and can not stall the engine by turning the air-fuel mixture skrew all the way in then your pilot/low-speed jet is too big and needs to be replaced with the next size smaller. Final adjustment should be made with a clean air filter mounted to the carburetor.

Gsf400 bandit wont charge


Hi!

Yepp, since you replaced the generator and you checked the cables, there cant be anything else, the battery is out of time and wont charge.
And its easy to check, take the bike to a repaire shop and let them measure the power your new generator gives, it takes 1 minit to check that and they wont charge you for it ( if they are nice guys ). But i will say that you need a new battery.

Suzuki GSF400 cranks but no fire


either it is not getting spark or not getting gas

FIX

First check for any fuses etc Make sure lights come on and or horn works

try spraying starting fluid directly into carb wile turning over

If it does not fire then remove spark plug and hold the plug (nut portion) with the lead attached
u aginst side of the engine cylinder and turn over
iif ther is no spark you have an ignition problem

It is either the points(not gaping) or magnito problem
