Use a chain spilter spilt the chain and attach the new chain to the old one turn the crank round to pull the new one on to the sproket of the crank then set your timing up and rivet the split link to the new chain.make sure you can get the chain if you check the net im sure you will find a spilt link for the new chain or buy a new chain with a split link.

I own a 2001 bandit 1200, 50.000 km. Oil consumption is now around 1000 cc per 1000km and smoking blueish. I will replace valve sealing and rings. Qstn: should I replace all rings or just the top ones


Not being a Mechanic, just what I see as commonsense, replacing ONLY the valve seals without checking for wear in the guides will be a waste of time & money, as the head will already be off the motor, probably also consider re-seating the valves as they need to be out to check the guide wear.---Much the same for rings---If the top ring is worn the others will likley be the same and unmatched rings may cause more problems down the line---for the rings to be checked/replaced, the piston will be out, so check the bore for lip & wear/ovality---specialist tools and a manual will be handy----local library/google may help here.Chains can be measured/checked too---a manual may clarify. I would expect a chain to have some form of automatic tensioner that generally eliminates at least minor wear, which should be quite low (I would think on this mileage---if oil/filter changed as per manual).

Will 190/0x17 tire clear the chain, swing arm, etc. on a GSF 1200


depends on the make of tyre whether u will have clearance or not. U should b aware that 190s r not made to run on 5.5 inch rims and doing so stuffs up the tyres profile and will adversely effect the handling.

Christmas comes early. Go to the site below and you can download a free PDF service manual. Yours is the 1st one in the "Suzuki GSF" section of the list. 4 or 5 below that is a PDF parts diagram with part numbers.

http://www.carlsalter.com/motorcycle-manuals.asp Most manuals are in English but some are not. There is no way to be sure without doing the download. You can always delete it if in a foreign language.

Top rating due for this answer! Thanks Asel :)

Oil plug


Bottom of oil pan...underneath the bike. Approach the undercarriage from the leftside of the bike, so you will not have to deal with the exhaust pipes. Remember to change your oil filter with every other oil change.
