Question about 1997 Suzuki GSF 250 Bandit

1 Answer

I got the bandit back in pieces and am trying to figure which lead goes to which spark plug. There are 2 "coils", each with a black and a red. One is a short and long lead. The other has two similar length leads. Thanks if you can help. Mal

The coil with the short and long leads connects to cylinders 1 and 4. The similar length leads connect to cylinders 2 and 3. It does not matter which way round as the leads on each coil fire together.

2001 Suzuki GSF 1200 Bandit S no spark


Hi, Ricky and the usual suspects are:
1. Fouled spark plugs.
2. Severely discharged or a damaged battery should have 12.5 volts or more and be able to pass a proper "LOAD" test if necessary, you may have a preliminary reading of 12.5 volts or more but little or zero amperage the battery is faulty and must be replaced, AGM batteries fail in this scenario more so than lead-acid batteries.
3. Check battery terminals for damage or corrosion, check the battery cables at "BOTH" ends for loose, corroded, or broken connectors, "INSIDE" and outside the cable harness, perform connector wiggle test and check cables with an ohmmeter if necessary.
4. Loose connection at ignition coil or plug between ignition sensor and module.
5. Spark plug cables in bad condition, shorting/leaking, spark plug cable connections loose check for spark leakage in the dark.
6. Faulty ignition coil or electronic control module.
7. Faulty pulse coil.
8. Faulty CKP, CMP, or BAS sensor.
9. Faulty ignition switch.
10. Tilt sensor needs a reset.
11. Security alarm failing to disarm needs reset

If a coil goes down can it go to 3 cylinders or will it always be two cylinders to go down??


Hi, Steve if a coil goes bad you are going to lose 2 cylinders I would look for a faulty plug wire/cable try switching cables to see if a different cylinder fails for more information about your question and valuable free downloads that you will need please visit the websites below.

WHAT IS THE SPARK PLUG ORDER FOR A KAWASAKI NINJA 900 1985


Left coil feeds 1 and 4...right coil feeds 2 and 3...as long as you stick to this it doesn't matter which lead goes to which plug. Left coil will have one short lead and one long...short =1...long = 4. Right coil leads will be about even in length...doesn't matter which goes to 2 or 3.
It's a wasted spark system so plugs 1 and 4 fire together...2 and 3 fire together...only 1 cylinder in each pair will be compressed and ready to fire when the spark happens, the other will be empty and coming on to it's inlet stroke...

I replaced plug wires: unfortunately i got mixed up : plug1, plug2, plug3 and plug 4 ; please show me where the wires must go to.


hi you dont say what model kawasaki you have im assuming you have a transverse four like a z1000 generally speaking as you sit on the bike the outer cylinders are 1 and 4 the inner cylinders are 2 and 3 ,now again im assuming you have two coils, each coil has two plug leads
coming out of them coil number one will serve cylinders 1 and 4 it doesnt matter which of these leads goes to either 1or 4 as bikes use a wasted spark system and will spark on the exhaust stroke as well, coil number 2 will serve cylinders 2 and 3 again it wont matter which plug lead goes to either 2or3 ok now for the tough part
you need to find the sparking point for no1 cylinder remove no1 spark plug probably the outer left cylinder as your sat on the bike and turn the engine over by putting the bike in gear (only do this with no plug leads connected as it could start unexpectedly in gear ) and push or bump the bike gently with the clutch out to bring the piston to the top of the bore a small torch would be handy for this to shine down the plug hole you then need to find a timing cover on the outside of the engine
you may need a service manual for this as there are many variations but usally there are two pick up modules one for each coil the timing marks correspond to each coil with cylinder 1 at the top of the bore the timing mark should be near number 1 pick up module now that you know which module number one is follow the wiring back to the coil ,each pick up wiring is a different colour like black and orange wires for one coil and black and green for another when you have found number one coil attach plug leads to it and fit them to cylinders 1 and 4 you then fit the remaining coil with plug leads to 2 and 3 cylinders refit the spark plug take the bike out of gear and go for a start good luck with this

I have took all the leads off from coil to plugs and forgot the set up on suzuki gsx600f Hreg


If you are sitting on the bike the left coil has an orange/white wire on the top and a white wire on the bottom.The HT leads go to plugs 1 4.The right coil has an orange/white lead on the top and a black/yellow wire on the bottom.The other HT leads go to 2 3.It doesnt matter which HT lead goes to either plug as thboth HT leads on the same coil fire at the same time (wasted spark system).Hope this has helped or you have already sorted it out.
