  2. Tricky Issues, experts needed

    Motorcycle Repair
    Hello! :grin: I've got this '96 Bandit 600, andI've got some problems. The issue in itself is that when I idle it, it won't really run without stalling.

    Story goes, I found a couple bad diaphragms in the CV carbs off my 82 GS 850. Those slides don't have replaceable boots and the diaphragms are prohibitively expensive (150+ per carb). My brother bought me a 79 GS850 with VM carbs on it but the displacement is different. (26mm versus the stock...

    Hi everyone, I hope someone can help me with this. I just purchased a beautifully kept '82 Suzuki 450T, and it's my first bike. I have a problem with it though: while I am riding below, say about 2500 RPM's, the engine seems to be not supplying enough power, and so it jumps a little bit. At...
