Why are you putting a new clutch in it? Are you doing it because you think it has a lot of time on it and it might be worn?

    I would recommend getting a Clymer service manual. They do very well in breaking the assembly and disassembly down into steps with various pictures to help you along the way. You won't find one for the 2003 model but there is one for up to model year 2000, and I believe the bandit did not change much from 2000 to 2003. So it should be able to help with the most of the process. And it is only like 25-35 dollars to purchase. Another option is heading to your local Suzuki service dealer and asking if you can take a look at their OEM service manual. Most will let you glance at it and write down some important torque specs and what not, some will even let you photo-copy a few pages for reference. It helps to talk to the parts guy sometimes, if he knows your spending the money to buy the parts there, he may be a little more willing to help rather than the service department that knows your not interested in spending the money with them to have the bike worked on. Good luck.

My 1996 Suzuki Bandit 600 makes a tic-toc noise, as I accelerate. It increases in speed as the motor gains rpm, coming from the clutch area. New chain and sprockets so thats not the issue. How do I check...

Shift cams ( more correctly known as shift drums ), never get broken and I have never seen one wear out in over 40 years of fixing bikes. No real pressure is put on them and they only rotate due to the shift lever moving up or down. The noise is likely a broken tooth on the clutch hub or generator gear or (possibly), too much slack in the cam chain. Please rate my answer. Thanks! tombones49_198.gif

all you do is drain the oil before removing the right hand engine casing the bigger one of the two then undo all the little bolts holding the small springs in place then rmove the face plate and take out the clutch plates and replace with new ones remember to put the new ones in the same order the old ones came out there should always be a friction plate between clutch plates once done put casing back and refill with new oil
hope this helps

I need to convert my bandit 1200 fluid clutch to cable can anybody help ?

I don't understand why you would want to do this, but I suggest you see if a sprocket cover from a 600 bandit would fit in place of the existing one. The sprocket cover is the bit behind the alternator housing on the left hand side of the engine. Since the 600 is cable clutch, i think it works on the worm gear principle, that may solve the problem.
