I'll have to do a bit more serious thinking on getting one of those Speedothingies.

Please tell me you did the Dale Walker stage 1 air box mod. You will not be disappointed. Free HP everywhere in the RPM band.


                                         Shrug


I have not. Not sure if I will unless I go the whole route with Dale’s exhaust and EFI tuner. In all honesty, I am quite happy with the power in stock form. I ride fairly conservatively. I only had the stage one mod kit in the 1200 because the factory jetting was way off. If I do go Stage1, it will be with the touring muffler and probably the DB Killer; I like quiet bikes.

The next mods are a gear indicator and PAIR removal. My do the PAIR removal myself but will probably have Dave, at Speedwerks, do it when I have him check the valves. I could do that myself, but am at the point in my life where I can afford to pay to have it done and I trust Dave.

Too bad I don't live closer to you. I could probably follow you around and live off whatever falls out of your pockets!

Not to beat the dead horse again but the silencer and two holes drilled into the air box cover is free HP everywhere in the RPM band without much more sound. The catalytic converter acts as quite a sound killing "plug". And no ECU programming necessary.

I don't doubt you a bit, but I am happy with the power it makes. Should that change...............

I had a 2007 1250s Bandit that I hot-rodded to 127rwhp and 84ftlb torque.  I used a PCIII Commander, pulled 2ndry Butterflies, eliminated 02 sensor, modded air box with K/N air filter, full exhaust system.  I felt that removing all that weight off the bottom made the Bike feel more top heavy with a full tank of fuel.
Read this thread if you really want big HP from your engine. Makes 160rwhp!

The hand guards toughed the windscreen at full lock. A quick and easy fix was to epoxy a small nylon spacer (cut from an extra thick nylon washer) on to the steering stops. Now the guards have just under 1/4" clearance from the screen.

That is a nice fix.

What do you think about the DB windshield?

I saw that your car was a Dodge then I saw the hub cap. A Dart! 66 or 67? Tell me it has a 383 and not the 318!?

It is a Zero Gravity Sport Touring windshield. I like it.

The car is a 64.

I haven't looked too hard at a bigger windshield on mine. After all, the bandit is my "day" bike.



When you didn't answer the 318/383 question I now know that you have a 6 cylinder, 3 on tree setup.        If you look hard enough a 413/4 speed will make the world right again.

Original 64 GT, 225 slant 6 with push button auto. 413 wedge will not come close to fitting without major modifications.

She is too original to mess with. Has under 160k original miles, I am the second owner and it was a california car.

Electronic turn signal flasher installed today in preparation of a turn signal mod. Ordered these (two sets - clear lens);

 https://www.aliexpress.com/item/For-SUZUKI-GSF-650-1200-1250-Bandit-GSX-650F-1250FA-Amber-Motorcycle-Accessories-Turn-Signal-Indicator/32319108102.html

Notice they are three wire units. I chose three wire so that I can have running lights and turn signal. Amber in front and red in the rear using LED 1157 bulbs from Super Bright LEDs.

Darn!!! I have to spend money! I like the gear position indicator. I hope it will work with my 2016.

By the way, I put a 19t sprocket on the bike to lower the rpms on the freeway. I still go for 7th gear once in a while because the bike has so much grunt that I think there is another gear coming.

This is how I finished the 2016 Bandit 1250 for long runs. Of course, that is why I have the FJR1300 but it is down for maintenance.

I made spacers/brackets to keep the soft bags off the painted parts. I also made a luggage rack to properly carry stuff. The tent goes across the passenger seat. A large tank bag and bingo.

Notice the 4 into 1 full exhaust, 12v power outlet on right side of lower dash board, VStrom handguards and removal of passenger foot peg brackets. You can't see the throttle lock. Oh yeah, I installed a 19t front sprocket. The speedometer is now spot on as verified by three of those side of road radar thingies. I got 55 and 56 MPG on two complete tank refills!!!!!!! That was in the high country though.
