Question about 1999 Suzuki GSF 1200 Bandit S

1999 Suzuki GSF 1200 Bandit starter clutch assembly bolt keeps backing off

Dear Sirs, The bolt that holds the starter clutch assy onto the crankshaft end keeps spinning the bolt out when starting after a few times. I've cleaned the tapers on the starter clutch and crank end (there's no woodruff key) and fitted them up to dry then applying blue Loctite to it and torquing the bolt to the 108 ft-lbs factory setting. Yet after following those installation procedures, it will spin it off after only a few tries at starting the engine again. The clutch assy is good and works as it should so I can't see the problem lies in that unit. The tapers look fine too, there's no galling or grooving on them either so the fit is as it should be. Is this bolt a one use 'elastic' type bolt that needs to be replaced after one torque installation or was there a revision of the torque setting??? I can't see any other reason it should keep getting loose. Thanks, Allan @

Pull out the 2 rear seat bolts, lift the rear an inch or two and slide it rearward.

SOURCE: battery does not hold charge new battery fitted

Sounds like a charging issue. First check all wires and make sure they are clean and making good contact, then check for proper voltage at the battery. I ride a harly so I don't know the exact voltage to look for but it most likly is around 13V at the battery if it isn't you need to look at your voltage regulator and stator.

SOURCE: Engine smokes / Ignition coil wire repairable?

Just screw the cap onto the lead if it falls off cut about 6mm off the lead and try again, a standard socket for a plug of your size should fit be sure to use a proper plug socket
smoke from the front of the engine could be from the exhaust where they bolt to the head,
Get your self a good degreaser and wash down the engine then run up the bike and look for oil leak dont ride the bike as a little oil will go a long way and it will be harder to see where its leaking, usual suspects rocker cover gasket if the oil is high up,

I have bandit 1200 wont start in neutral with side stand down also no neutral light on dash. bike year 1999 please help


This could be the clutch switch:
1. Check the wires to make sure they are plugged firmly into the switch.
2. Use a voltmeter to check that resistance through the switch goes to zero when the clutch handle is pulled in.

If you have replaced the clutch switch with a fuse....check that the fuse is good and the blades are not corroded.

We rebult clutch and now the clutch does not engage. We have bleed the lines and it still does not engage. Any suggestions will be appreciated.


I had a similar problem and found that when I put the clutch back in, it wasnt quite seated correctly, i,e one of the bolts that go onto the springs was catching on the basket. This gave the same symptoms as you have. Also, is the cluch slave cylinder operating correctly? Might be worth removing it and checking the clutch is pushing the slave cylinder plunger forward.

all you do is drain the oil before removing the right hand engine casing the bigger one of the two then undo all the little bolts holding the small springs in place then rmove the face plate and take out the clutch plates and replace with new ones remember to put the new ones in the same order the old ones came out there should always be a friction plate between clutch plates once done put casing back and refill with new oil
hope this helps

Hello I have a 2001 Suzuki bandit 1200. The problem is when I depress the starter switch. I hear the normal spinning of something below near the top of the engine. but the motorcycle wont start. 2...


I had the same thing happen. It's a problem with the starter clutch and how it's attached . A primary bolt is loose. Be sure to have your mechanic use some locktite or really wrench it on there tight--my guy fixed it and then the same thing happened again 10 mos later. But it hasn't happened again in the several years since then. Good luck.
