Question about 1997 Suzuki GSF 1200 Bandit S
Blowes out white smoke when down shifting. also pops when down shifting is that normal?
I guess it depends on a number of tings - how many miles has it done?
Has it been regularly serviced?
Have the oil change schedules been properly observed?
Is the correct amount of oil in the bike? Not too much?
Has it been thrashed or is it one-careful-lady-owner :)
If it has had a hard life, even though it is a bulletproof engine, the rings could be gettng tired and you are getting excess oil in the combustion chamber. They are popular with the 'drive em hard' fraternity...
Do a compression test to be sure... easy and cheap to diagnose.
