Question about 2003 Suzuki GSF 600 S Bandit

1 Answer

2003 Suzuki GSF 600 S Bandit quit running

I was driving home going an estimated 60mph. My engine started to make a deep sound like it was losing power. Then I started to lose acceleration and wasn't getting any response from my throttle. Eventually, my engine died and I came rolling to a stop. The bike wouldn't start after that. I had a little less than half a tank of gas. I tried starting it up the next day and it worked fine. The bike is a 2003 bandit 600s. cant figure out what it is?

Hi, Sibleymd10 and the usual suspects are:
1. Severely discharged or a damaged battery must 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.
2. Faulty alternator/generator and or voltage regulator.
3. Loose or corroded battery terminals and or cables especially the "NEGATIVE" cable, look for loose, corroded, or broken connectors inside the cable harness at "BOTH" ends.
4. Faulty main circuit breaker or ignition switch, check for loose connections and continuity.
5. Faulty system and or ignition relay, check for continuity.
6. Faulty ignition coil, ignition/electronic module.
7. Faulty CKP, CPS, CMP, MAP, TPS, or BAS sensor, corroded, loose or broken wire connector pins/sockets.
8. Throttle cables and or idle speed improperly adjusted hot idle speed should be 950 RPM to 1000 RPM.
9. Faulty neutral, side stand or clutch lever safety switch.
10. Fuel tank empty
11. Fuel tank contaminated with ethanol sludge.
12. Water or dirt in the fuel system, or clogged filter.
13. Restricted, blocked or kinked fuel line.
14. Faulty fuel pump.
15. Faulty pressure regulator.
16. Faulty or clogged fuel injectors.
17. Lean angle switch is faulty or needs adjustment.

SOURCE: bike started to sputter and lose power fuel

This sounds like water in the gas. Condensation in the gas tank makes it's way into the float bowl and after enough accumulates the bike dies because water just doesn't burn like gas. Drain the carbs and then let them fill up again. The good thing is that the cost to eliminate this as a problem is zero.

SOURCE: how to remove spark plugs

If the plugs are very tight, use firm pressure intermittantly whilst unscrewing the plugs a bit at a time, screwing the plug back in and then out again. This, if done with a hot engine, will help to avoit damaging the head and the aluminium threads.
If the threads get damaged due to a build up of carbon on the end of the threads, Helicoils will need to be inserted. If you need helicoils, contact a quality engineering company for help, or a good garage. Don't foget to fit the correct length plugs and use "Copper Ease" on the thread to avoid this problem again
Hope that helps

There should be a check engine light on.You will need to retrieve the diagnostic coded from the computer to help you pin point why this is occurring. Go to autozone they will do this for free.

My sunbird is losing power while im driving. Check engine light comes on and off. After losing power, it starts up then loses power when accelerating and cuts off again. I had the head gaskett replaced


sounds like the distributor, I would replace it and see if that fixes the problem. If not then it may be with the fuel pump and filter. Good Luck Tim

Won't accelerate faster than 55mph. Loses pwr..


When you losing speed, do you lose RPM? This is important. 1- If you don't lose RPM then you have a problem with your torque converter. 2- If you lose RPM then you have a problem with fuel air mixture and this is controlled by ECM. Usually ECM is not a problem, but the problem is coming from other sensors contributing fuel: air mixture control like Air mass flow control ans Oxygen Sensor besides the throttle body valve is gummed up and need a through clean. So try to address the last one first then follow in reverse order if the case is in # 2. Good luck.
