20 Most Recent 2008 Suzuki Bandit 1250 Questions & Answers


Well being that yours is a thumper, it shouldn't be too hard to track down. With no other info, I'd guess the carb was gummed up a little on the pilot jet. So unless you have reasons to think otherwise, I'd say it's time for a full carb cleaning.

Test the bulb with two wires to the battery.

Check the grounds.

Check the switch.

Then clutching at straws, the continuity of all the wires involved. They often break inside the insulation where the wire flexes from headlight unit/forks to the frame.

Step 1 Pull back the rubber cover of the clutch lever to reveal the lock nut and adjusting screw. Loosen the lock nut with a wrench. Tighten the adjuster screw until it won't turn any more.
Step 2 Remove the left frame cover of the body of the bike and set it aside in a safe place. Remove the bolts holding the secondary gear case cover and the clutch release cover with a socket wrench. Remove the secondary gear case and clutch release cover and set them aside.
Step 3 Find the lock nut and screw located at the lower end of the clutch assembly cable. Loosen the lock nut. Loosen the screw by three rotations. Slowly finger tighten the adjusting screw until you start to feel resistance. Loosen the screw a quarter-rotation. Tighten the lock nut to hold it in place.
Step 4 Locate the lower cable adjuster above the clutch release cover. Loosen the two lock nuts of the adjuster with the socket wrench. Turn the cable adjuster screw and check the clutch lever as you turn. Tighten the adjuster screw until the clutch lever will wiggle loosely or "play" about 1/8-inch. Tighten the lock nuts.
Tighten the lock nut of the clutch lever. Replace the clutch release, secondary gear case and left frame cover. Pull the rubber cover back over the clutch lever.

There should be an adjustment on the carburetor. If you follow the throttle cable to the carburetor, and turn the throttle, you will see what moves on the carburetor when opening the throttle. Whatever part moves, there should be a screw or knob that you can adjust to raise or lower the idle.

This motorcycle has a hydraulic clutch. It probably needs to be bled, or has a bad slave or master cylinder. Try bleeding it first.

On the right side of the bike near the site glass for the oil level there may be a chrome cover you will need to remove. it should be somewhere near your right heel as you ride the bike. On the large round crank case cover. Some older bikes use the same cap to included the 'dip' stick.
