May be different in shape but a tap is a tap and unless the outlet places the fuel line in a bad position or the thread is wrong it will still do the job
having said that e-bay shows photos of the taps on sale from each seller and in the product description has a list of units that it will fit generally
you can contact the seller and ask to return it if you are unhappy with the product as you did ask about the application and received assurances that it would fit and so the retail law as to' fitness for use" comes into play to gain a refund or replacement

Suzuki gsf 600 s bandit. 2004 k4.just cut out and won't start. Bike is dead but there is power to lights ext.

First thing make sure there is a spark in the spark plugs. If you know how to do it- good. If you don't- ask me. if spar is there but bike won't start, then problem could be in fuel delivery (tap, filter, obstructed fuel lines ext.) could be fuel delivery. Good luck.

Hi, i seem to have a problem with my bandit not getting enough fuel too the carbs, what can it be that is stopping most of the fuel not coming through? Im also looking for carbs for my suzuki bandit, which...

You may find the petrol filter is blocked. That is usually at the top of the petrol tap in the tank. Unscrewing the petrol tap will reveal it.
I always recomend the manufacturers parts as they have more expertise than us!
Fit original carburettors, they were designed for the engine after all.

I recently bought a suzuki bandit 400 for the mpg. The fuel tank was off and i can't seem to find where the lines go from the valve under the tank.

One hose will go to a vacuum source and the other to the fuel tap. The idea is that fuel will not run until the diaphram in the back of the Petcock is pulled back by vacuum. Prime the engine first and then swap over when the engine fires up.

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

Cant get piston out of front caliper on suzuki 1200 k4 bandit

I'm assuming that it has been sitting for a while and now it's stuck. Do you have oil in the reservoir? Pressing the brake lever should be able to force the piston out with no problems. Otherwise, try to get the seal out from around the piston, and spray some anti rust lubricant and let it soak.
