Question about 1991 Suzuki GSF 400 Bandit
This could be almost anything, probably minor. Good premium unleaded fuel, fresh/clean and gapped plugs, fuel filters clean,. Carbies clean and jets good, correct float levels, no air leaks in intakes, air filter clean, Electrical connections 100%, ignition coils OK, no sign of moisture behind magneto/stator cover or on source/pick-up coils. Engine earth wire secure from head to frame?
New plugs, 0.7mm gap to start with and set air* mixture screw 1.5 turns out.
To flush carby with cleaning solvent (spray can from auto access.) Take float bowls off (check for sediment) and fuel lines off and spray till it pours out of float needle seat, Loosen carby clamps and swivel carbies outwards 90 degrees and unscrew pilot jets and spray thru also. Check operation and smooth return of choke.
* Air mixture screw controls fuel-air mixture at idle speed and is a trial and error thing. Pilot and Main jets regulate cruising and acceleration mixtures and ranges according to rider style and riding and climate conditions.
If there is any undue noise comming from the top of the engine with revs slowly rising from idle to 2000 revs, you may need to check camchain tension and valve clearances, easy done with some simple tools and a manual. Downloadable free with an engine search!
Goodluck and Cheers.
