20 Most Recent 1998 Suzuki GSF 600 N Bandit Questions & Answers

If it was running fine when you got the bike it makes me wonder how you discovered the spark plugs were rotten? Clearly they weren't very rotten...

Spark plug gaps rarely need adjusting these days prior to fitting, mostly just checking to ensure a gap hasn't been closed due to being dropped is all that is needed. I am wondering if you made the elementary mistake of confusing metric and imperial measurements; I apologise if you find the suggestion insulting.

If it wasn't an elementary mistake, I think you should begin a systematic fault diagnosis by checking the spark power and quality.

could be a coil...could also be timing pickups or tight valve clearances...I'd start with a valve clearance check

Hi, the lever should not go all the way down, sounds like you have air in your brake system, check your brake pads, if they are ok than bleed the rear brake system, the lever should never bottom out.

make sure its correct antifreeze for bikes. I'm sure they are glycol mixes but check they are ok with aluminium blocks

run some seafoam through the tank to clean up a little of the crud thats bound to be in the lines and carbs, check all the fuel and brake lines, flush the brake fluid both front and rear, change the oil filter, air filter, and spark plugs. get a shop manual and go from there.

Why are you putting a new clutch in it? Are you doing it because you think it has a lot of time on it and it might be worn?

It sounds like the seal for the clutch pushrod is gone. It will have to be replaced, your local dealer should do it for a fair price, shop about, if you are mechanically inclined you could try it yourself. You will need the manual though. And guess what....here it is! ;-) rate me if this helps you. Thanks

have a look at the earth connection at the battery or engine

1998 Suzuki GSF... | Answered on Mar 14, 2009

try using some either (starting fluid) spray it in the airbox and see if the condition improves. if it does troubleshoot fuel delivery, start at the tank and make sure you are getting fuel to the carbs. if you are then chances are your carburetors need to be cleaned

It's time to adjust the valves. You have tight valves and most likely need to adjust the cam chain. This is classic when the valves are tight. Most likely you can start it up when cold ok but after a few minutes performance deteriorates this being due the valve lash being to tight.
The miss fire is due to a lean situation.
