GSX 1250FA

Post  Jimcoleman on Thu 03 Oct 2013, 9:25 pm

Well guys i picked up my new Bandit, oops GSX1250FA yesterday, i rode it home from Canberra and i put in the garage. A wash and polish and General clean was in order, a referral to the owners manual on how to set the clock, off with the bridgestones and on with some dunlop roadsmarts IIs i have read good things about these hoops, fit the mirror extenders, givi top box, now the bike came with a Ixil exteme pipe, but my remus won out in the looks dept and i did not notice any difference in power between either of them.

Now in the little ride home yesterday what comparisons did i find. well the suspensions works for a change, it has a suzuki gel touring seat on it very comfy, two givi E46 panniers. Geezus these are big suckers, might have to put wide load on it, gear selector is very nice, change light is a definite wank, headlight looks brighter, being full faired there will be no curb hopping and a pair of r&g crash knobs will be in order when the budget prevails

So why did i buy another bandit, bang for buck, cheap and cheerful on the wallet and where else do i get a 2011 bigbore tourer with lots of fruit with 4000ks on the clock for a $5000 change over plus if i bought any thing else id miss you guys too much

I got my new GSX1250FA in may after coming off a CBR1100xx, I can't believe how good this bike is.   I couldn't ride the Blackbird any real distances due to damage to my neck and consequently I get severe pins and needles in my hands.  I had put riser bars and cruise control on the Bird but still no good, so enter the GSX1250FA.   The riding position is what sold me initially but it's just the pure enjoyment I get out of riding the thing that has made me a little obsessive about riding again.  I am 48 yrs. old and Love the 1250FA  like My GPZ900R when I was 30.  I can do our local loop, Cairns to Mareeba Via port Douglas and the mighty REX Range around 2Hr's of riding without needing to take a break.   My mate in Canberra had to sell his VFR800 due to back issues recently, he tested 11 bikes including the Ducati Duvall and bugger me he bought a GSX1250FA and money wasn't an issue the best bike won.   Mods so far for me, a Two Brothers Slip On, a Holeshot Pairs removal Kit (Thanks to members advice on this forum), an R&G radiator guard again good advice, an MC Cruise control, sheepskin and a Ventura rack.   Coming in the new year will be the Holeshot stage 1 TFI setup and maybe the Fork Brace.   I have just ordered a Morgan carb balancer kit from the UK for 67 pound delivered to OZ in advance.  That will be helpful for my project bike in the shed.   Anyway enjoy your ride Very Happy  
PS Can anyone tell me how to upload pictures ?

This is one way to do it - it's not as straightforward as you might think.
