Suzuki bandit 600 (1999) problem

Hello everyone,:winkie:

I have problems with my bandit 600. When its cold weather or it stand for few hours the bike starts very very hard and cutting off.
Also after few minutes of warming when i add throttle its just cutting off, so i need to ride with choke about 10 minutes. 

Recently i changed sparkplugs and engine oil.
Can this be problem with air filter? I also tried to start the bike without air filter, but nothing changed..
Also i can't set idle speed above 900rpm.
It was to the point where if I touched the throttle, the bike would bogg and stall. After about 10 mins though, the bike was running well enough to take for a ride.
Please help, i'm lost.

Suzuki GSF 600 Bandit 1999

Hi MW43al

Dabbsy love the shellac reference,it reminds me of my old dad (painter by trade)used to use shellac on furniture,and if you wound him up he would say,your lookin for a good shellacking :lol: which would be a beating.Anyway to remove the blanking caps covering the Mixture screws you need to drill a hole dead in the middle (Suzuki recommend 1/8th drill bit ) the bit should be set at 6mm so it doesn't go to deep and hit the Mixture screw.Use a self tapping screw and a pair of pliers screw the self tapper in and pull the cap out by pulling on the head of the screw.As has been said before it sounds like your pilot jets are still blocked or very much compromised Good Luck

KCMC:tongue:

AaaHhhhh

Castrol R (Castrol R 40)also known as Cazzie R probably the first thing that reminds me of the race paddock when i was a kid,we still emulate it by putting a small amount of Olive oil in with the petrol just to get the smell(only on four strokes,done it once with a two stroke and it ate the piston:upset:)good memories,showing our age now though :smile
