  • Bandit mods

    Not sure if I'm recreating for the sake of it, but thought I'd suggest that we all list the mods we have done so far as a ready reference for other bandit riders that might join the group.
    I think most are probably on this thread in one way or another.

        Mods so far;
        - Ventura Tail Rack and Bag
        - Tank protector skins (3M type clear stuff, can't recall brand)
        - Viper stainless steel bolt-on exhaust (fitted yesterday)

        plus extra road grime as it is a commuter that does a daily run of 130km, rain, hail, or shine.

        Wondering what to do & airbox mods? Possibly also a throttle lock and heated grips or electric gloves.

          throttle lock and heated grips
          This in my opinion.
          Much more useful for your daily grind i recon

            • #7
              If you can open the secondaries with software then let me know.I'm keen as mustard. With no ram air or different cams I doubt bigger injectors or throttle bodies would help mate.


              • #8
                agree reddog, bigger TB's and injectors is more a - wonder if it'd work or do anything. probably more close to a - if i had heaps of $$$$$$ and didn't worry if i blow stuff up, i'd have a crack

                block off plate turned up yesterday, bikes in bits. should be finished by next weekend (family day tomorrow)

                ECU reflash can be done (I don't have Ozzie maps tho so some work to do on that front) but i'm looking into if it can be done thru OBD plug instead of adding another harness to do it.

                      Hi Bandit heads,

                      Been a bit since i've been on here.

                      Have just spoken with a company called Waggott Cams regarding cam re-grinding. Although they are yet to actually
                      grind any cams for the 1250 particularly, they have ground plenty of cams for Gsx-r 1000 to 1300 and mention
                      that they have enough specs for a motor size of 1250.

                      I replied with "i'll check with the mechanic" as the contact, Pete, mentioned a price of around the $250 mark for
                      both cams plus freight.

                      If there is not too much involved in the way of cost for remove & replace and reasonable gains can be expected
                      without too much other work e.g. porting, valves or compression ratios then it could be next on the cards.

                      keep you informed.

                        Noticed that there was a listing for a Zero Gravity Double Bubble screen in amongst the mods, would you consider this an improvement to the standard, does it throw the air over your helmet etc. How much, where from and was it easy to fit, looks good?

                        Also, I have a pair of GIVI panniers, thinking of adding a V46 Givi topbox, noticed this was listed too, how does it look, would you have a picture?
