Question about 2005 Suzuki GSF 650 N Bandit

2 Answers

Hi - I've got a 2005 650 Bandit & had it service about 4 months ago but didn't use it much. I put fuel in using a petrol can & am wondering whether there was muck in the can - I took it out for a spin yesterday & it wouldn't tick over properly. It was fine at speed but when slowed at junctions/roundabouts, it was cutting out. Just wondering whether it could be something simple & easily fixed as I'm ashamed to say I'm a bird & don't have a clue on maintenance!!

Sounds like you have dirt or rust particles in the fuel system

i had a similar problem on a suzuki gs250t custom, my bike would not start some times and if did start, would run erratically, and cut out, this was after i changed the spark plugs, found out that the supplier gave me the incorrect graded plugs.

SOURCE: Loud tick noise in crankcase.

Thanks for the background info. With all the work that has been done and the good readings I can suggest a few possibilities.

  1. A broken gear tooth, (highly likely if the "tick" is not present in all gears).
  2. Broken gear tooth on the clutch hub, (highly likely if the "tick" is present in all gears).
  3. Wrong heat range on the spark plug causing detonation.
Set the air screw and pilot screw back to factory settings > turn each inward until LIGHTLY seated. Now open each of them one and one-half turns. The stock jetting should be okay.

i had same problem,..i changed the oil and it went away,..i find in the non oil cooled motors you need to change oil every 300-500 miles depending on how hard you drive.

I wondered if 9 months is too long for the gas that is in the tank to use. Would a gas treatment be a good idea?


petrol in a tank starts to change after 1 month and deteriorates rapidly after that
fuel stabilizers extend the life of petrol and are a good idea for all fuel tanks and reservoirs if left for extended periods of time
if the tank is low on fuel then just fill with good fuel and it will be ok
if you are going to use a fuel stabilizer then pre-mix it with good fuel before putting in the tank otherwise it will no mix properly

GSF 600 won't idle and has poor throttle response.


Hi, Anonymous electrical contact cleaner is what you need and the usual suspects are:
1. Fuel cap or fuel tank is not venting properly.
2. Fuel filter clogged.
3. Fuel line pinched or kinked.
4. Float needle and seat sticking.
5. Float level too low.
6. Carburetor bowl vent line clogged/blocked/pinched.
7. Idle adjusting screw set too low.
8. Air/fuel mixture screw set too lean.
9. Idle port, transfer ports, slow air jet clogged.
10. Slow fuel jet clogged.
11. Faulty fuel pump.

Can't find fuel overflow hose


Hi Randy, look for a smmal thin hose coming off of the carburetor float bowl, and the usual suspects are:
1. Damaged or restricted fuel tank venting system.
2. Loose float bowl screws.
3. Damaged float bowl o-ring.
4. Improper fuel level in float bowl.
5. Worn or dirty inlet valve or seat.
6. Damaged or leaky float assembly.
7. Particle contamination in inlet fitting cavity.
8. Ethanol sludge, dirt, rust in bottom of fuel tank
Good luck and have nice day.

Hi, you could try undoing the drain screws at the bottom of each float bowl, to let out the old fuel from each carb which may have become contaminated, however it is my thoughts that the contamination caused by the fuel standing for a period of time in the carbs has formed a varnish type effect blocking the main jets, also causing the float needle to become stuck in the closed position restricting the flow of petrol into the carbs, not such a bad job if you are mechanicaly mindedk

Is a Victa Sunbeam 160 Special a 2 stroke or 4 stroke? Wondering what additive to use with fuel. Thanks so much for your help.


hi there tanyajames88

your victa is a 2 stroke vc160 these units sare stated to run 25:1 fuel / oil ratio

that is 40 mils of 2 stroke for every 1.0 litre of petrol that mix

so if mixing 2 litres - 1st put in 80 mils of good quality 2 stroke oil then put in 2 litres of petrol , give good shake and fill up your mower tank

2 stroke oil that you would use for sthil chainsaw would be ok its hi quality

you could use some fuel stabilizer additive to hekp stop mix from going stale too soon
if wish but most times just mix enoyugh mix to het job done , then mix more if need it

that way mix is always fresh

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.

Starting problem


Try the idle air control valve it is located near the throttle body it has a four wire plug and has two small hoses attached to it this is a small stepper motor that controls the amount of air on start up this part will cost about $200 from a popular auto parts store.
