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

2005 Suzuki GSF... | Answered on Jun 02, 2017


Either a short or the circuit is now drawing too much amperage. Disconnect the new indicators and see if that is the problem. Hope this helps.

You mean "tire" presure ?

The tire should state on the side in small print the correct "lbs" or "presure"..

Hope this helps !!
rate me good ;o)

Sounds like you have blocked jets in the carbs or petrol starvation. Try adjusting the idle jets to let more fuel in.

2005 Suzuki GSF... | Answered on Dec 31, 2010


Did you mean that once the battery was taken out to be charged or it was charged while on the bike.
If the battery can be removed off for half and hour and set back to reset the clock ,try adjusting the time once again and see if the clock comes back to display. If not this can be a error in the clock section of the processor, a fault in the crystal oscillator. If the ignition and other electronics are working fine, please check for any loose joints, printed board dry soldering, specially of the crystal . This can be the only other reason than the micro processor.
I also would like to ask you to join the following forum to discuss your issue with the Bandit owners.

it just like you said...you'll have to take the tank, seat, and fairings back off and search everywhere for them..they'll be there, unless someone cut them off.....you might have to put in some extra time start at the rear and work forward..hope you find them.

Hey - sorry to hear about the road rash- - crashed my bike some years ago and still have the scars to prove it . I hope you make a great recovery.

As for finding the bike part you need for cheap. You can start by Clicking here
go to that website -look around for your state - find the best city for you and join it FREE - then post an ad in the WANTED section and be sure to renew it about once a week. Change the wording - and try other large cities as well.
You can also put wanted ads on the local paper's online site usually for free. Be sure to call the local bike repair shops and also ask about a bike salvage company near you. Many times these guys can find deals for people like us. I just found [ on Craigslist ] a full set of wheels and tires to match - Good Years - for 50.00 - very nice deal. SO IT CAN HAPPEN. Please hang in there and scour the outlets and keep praying - it will happen within a few weeks or months but it will happen. Again I hope you're healing great.

"This manual contains an introductory description on the SUZUKI GSF650/S and procedures for its inspection/service and overhaul of its main components."

First thing that I would do is a compression test. Go to you local auto part store and tell them you need to buy a compression gauge. It should come in a kit that has a gauge, hose and adapters. Remove all the spark plugs. On the cylinder that you think isnt running screw the adapter and hose into the spark plug hole then hook the gauge to the hose. Once done crack the motor over buy pressing the start button and watch the gauge. If there is good compression the gauge will build up pressure and stay up. If the compression is bad the gauge will eather go up and fall or not go up at all...after that give send me an email and I can tell you where to go from there....cj_monaco@hotmail.com

32psi front, 36psi rear. thats for street riding not track ;)

2005 Suzuki GSF... | Answered on May 18, 2009


Custom seat - take your seat to a local upholstery shop (I prefer places that do boat seats since the bike seat is out in the weather like a boat seat is) and ask them to add some more foam to build the seat up higher. Custom seat makers like Corbin, Mr. Eds, and Russell day-long saddles can do this too. You might consider moving the seating position back some too, this will reduce the passenger room but make your riding more comfortable.

You can also relocate your foot pegs for some extra room, if there is a kit for your bike. Touratech has kits for some bikes. If you are or know a skilled fabricator you can have some made.

never heard of this. chances are you will find a weak spot in the tank and blow through it. To me this sounds like a very dangerous endeavor.

2005 Suzuki GSF... | Answered on Mar 12, 2009


For the 600 it's 33psi (2.25 Bar) for the front and 36 psi (2.50 Bar) for the rear
