Suzuki Bandit 600

Suzuki Bandit 1999

I am a total novice to the biking world. I passed my test a few months ago (Isle of Man) and got a Bandit.

When i initially try start it up or if i stall it (cold or warm engine/with choke/without)-I have to wait like a minute or longer before it will decided to fire up.

It doesn't even atempt to turn over. Got a new battery on it so that deffo aint a issue. When it does turn over, it fires up first time.

When its running its totally fine (but as I'm inexperianced, stalling it on a new bike is part of learning.....right?!)

Any help would be fantastic....Thanks

battery

Welcome s,a new battery can be faulty,what`s the voltage reading with ignition off and engine at 4,000rpm? Also does the bike start with jump leads from a donor battery?

Cheers for your reply, I'll check the voltage out later this morning.

No it doesnt need jump leads and the lights/indicators work fine when the thing has decided to do a delayed start (aware of not starting the bike with the lights on).

Sounds like a dodgy connection somewhere. check everything is fine at the solenoid and that its a 30amp fuse in it.. the solenoid is under the left hand side side panel.. seat off. undo the pop screw and u should be able to get to it.  also did u check the voltage at the battery like jaffa advised

When she is switched off battery is 14.2 and 16.3 when its on idle.


I'll have to have a look to see if I can find/check the solenoid.
I took a photo of the fuse box and this other thingy that is under the seat. I really am a proper novice at all this!

Cheers for ya help guys

voltage

That is bad news about the battery voltage,any readings should not be above 15v max,if you carry on you will cook the new battery (if not already done so).Your regulator/rectifier is faulty because it should not let more than 14.5v really to the battery for charging.There`s a Paul.D.J. on here from the i.o.m. he`s a bike technician or do you know a vehicle sparky technician?
