Haven't picked up my new bandit yet, it's a GSF600S 2001/Y reg. what's the likely hood of a fuel gauge?

I hardly ever use the shout box tbh, but welcome benji you should try the main boards and probably get more luck on them, if you haven't already go to the newby's and away you go.

August 30, 2014, 16:57:05 PM
I'm no expert but I'd guess so too. If its just running rich did he suggest anything like adjusting pilot screw or re jetting or something? If they were fine before he probably put the pilot screws randomly maybe?
August 30, 2014, 16:40:51 PM
We'll this guy is meant to be the best in my area ? He told me to look out for a new set of carbs ? But I'm a logical thinker ant can't see why mine are not repairable in some way as all parts on a carb seem to be replaceable ?

Massive karma points for M & P Direct - they sent me a hose and valve I needed next day, completely free of charge, even though I had never used them before. Would recommend! It was for my vacuum gauges and I had been looking for about 3 months!

I'd check your battery terminals are tight.  If OK, then check the main plug that goes into the back of the instruments.  It sounds like a bad earth and re-seating the plug may do it.

im no expert but maybe check that the cables are'nt snagging?  does it happen as your turning?   i switched my headlights to twins a while ago and found that as i turned the headlight wires pulled over the speedo cable and kept stopping it.

cheers,shawn.

Hi, has anyone found the cause of this problem, as it's just happened to me.

I have a 1250 57 reg with 1607 miles on the clock. It all works very well, but I left it ticking over for 5 min in the garage, when I returned, the rev counter was at zero and the digital display was dead but the engine still running fine....all other functions were working ok.

Can anyone help?

if the time is resetting then I would say that there has been a break in the current going to the clocks, a minor interuption would be enough I reckon to reset the clock, not sure if this would affect the rest of it and make it stop working, they can be a bit prone to condensation I have found this on mine but never had a problem so far, touch wood.

my first point of all would be the wiring, check all plugs are tight and not corroded, terminals tight as alreadt said.

edit: looking at the vid , thats what happens when you first turn the key, the rev needle wraps round and then resets back to zero, could be an issue with the ignition wiring telling the clocks that you are turning them on ?

This isn't exactly realted to your problem but just for information, the 1250 will run and ride without any clocks connected at all

Had a similar issue on my Mk1 b12, check your fuses, there is one that controls most of the console if I'm not mistaken.

Hi,

just had my Bandit sorted. Had all the wiring checked, and all was ok. It turned out to be the clocks that had a faulty pcb which intermittantly cut power to the dial and display. A new set of clocks is the only fix for this problem, which Redcar m/c's of Leicester sorted for me with great customer service. I now have a Bandit with zero miles on it  Grin
