Black 1250S heading up the SE Freeway just before the tunnels this morning

About 40 min later a black 1200S on Brighton Rd Glenelg

I also spotted a Red 1200 S on Tapleys Hill Rd near the airport one night earlier this week

Rode along the M80 with a new...ish 1250FA in black. Looked good! A chat at the lights revealed this was his second bandit.

I got followed up the main st of Wagga last Sunday by a Black 1200s ( like mine ) and I was totally underwhelmed at the outstandingly poor headlight. It was as blinding as a tealight candle. Sooooo, Can anyone suggest an easy fix, old globe out - new globe in. Ive tried searching but can only find 1250 info. ( Calling MtBeerwah, do you have a copy? over. )

Thats what I'm thinking Hammy. I'd just like someone to tell me the right one to buy or at least where to find it. Ive read too many " wish I'd have bought the such & such and not the whatsaname " stories. 6000 lumens, no 4500 lumens??? you know what I mean.

Well, it wasn't me, although I was out and about on Sunday.  But yes the lights are pretty crap on the Bandits.

Internal fix
35watt 6000K HID switched by relays

External fix
LED spotlights

There are quite a number of members who have fitted both options. Plenty of information available on the forum.

Janice has taken to riding the Bandit (or as it is now known OUR bike) rather than riding her SV650S (which incidentally is still HER bike).

I passed a red bandit 600s on the F6 just heading into Heathcote and he/she was riding slowing in the breakdown lane like he/she was hoping to get to the servo at Heathcote  before running out of fuel.
I took a second look when I saw the 600s on the fairing, thought I had been riding too long maybe.
