Re: Suzuki GSF400 Bandit

Looks like a good time for an update! For quite a while I had the intention to go for an intank fuel as a replacement to the external inline pump I've been using so far. Main reason was the power consumption of the external fuel pump, simply too much for the B4 generator despite my attempt to reduce...

Re: Suzuki GSF400 Bandit

Additional intake runners sound like a good plan if you have room to spare... I don't know about the CB-1 but the B4 does not have any free space at all to consider such a fabrication. And since no other set of TBs fits in I had to do my best with the existing carb bodies. It does have a few good th...

Re: Suzuki GSF400 Bandit

Kevin, I just t'eed together the vacuum port from each separate carb body (originally intended for carb balancing) in one hose. Fed the MAP sensor and pressure regulator from this pipe. Got a decent MAP signal and it works good for the FPR I suppose. Now the thing is that I am not really sure if hav...

Re: Suzuki GSF400 Bandit

...What pump and pressure regulator did you end up using? Hi, I am still using the same stuff I bought originally for the project. This would be: -an external in-line fuel pump (automotive type replacement for bosch part # 0580464070) -an adjustable fuel pressure regulator (1 - 5 bar) The exact par...

Re: Suzuki GSF400 Bandit

Time for an update. As I said in previous post I would be attempting some serious modifications on some bike parts. Well, instead of fitting an intank pump, I preferred to stick with with the fuel pump already used and the adjustable pressure regulator. Why spend extra money to buy something that I ...

Re: Suzuki GSF400 Bandit

Greetings everyone, Baby was born so I left project aside for a while :) Not much happened since last update except the fact that I rearranged the fuel system. Removed fuel pump from underneath airbox. It was receiving too much heat from engine block at that place. Also moved the fuel pressure regul...

Re: CBR400RR 1991. Possible?

We haven't heard from Tubular in a while. He lives in Athens, Greece which makes me worry for him. Greece seems like the place that history will note as "where the world first began to come apart" this is tubular speaking, I don't know about the rest of the world but things are coming apart here......

So you are into it for good!

Not too much from my side. Some modifications in fuel system but in the meantime my wife gave birth :yeah!: :yeah!: :yeah!: so bike is left aside for the time being. Will follow up shortly though.

Re: Finally! I feel ready to call my Kawasaki EX250 a succe

Neat job!

Well done. Now enjoy :)

Just one question regarding code running on MS. Any special reason for using MS EXTRA code? Did you run on B&G code (eg 2.890) at some point? If yes did you notice any difference?

Re: Suzuki GSF400 Bandit

Newsflash: The B4 is alive and kicking again :yeah!: Just came up from the garage. Indeed the R20 was damaged, probably from failure of the TachoModule. However I cannot put the blame on this tach input module cause it was not designed or intended for such use. This is merely a small circuit designe...
