Harro From the Sunny Coast.

Post  mstrrab1992 on Sat 04 Apr 2015, 9:38 am

Hey Guys.

My name is Ryan and im from the sunshine coast in queensland.

Im only 22 and have my full opens motorcycle licence. i was commuting to and from work on a suzuki boulevard c50 for the past year.

Ive decided to upgrade to a 2010 gsx1250fa just for a little bit better touring capabilities And a little more grunt for the still younger side of me. Even though im not to much of a rev head. The cruiser just didnt cut it for me.

The gsx1250fa i purchased 2 days ago. Has 73k kms on it. Alot of kms i know. I only paid 5k for it with 3years warranty from the dealership i bought it through. Even tho it has 73k kms it was a one owner bike and seems to have been maintained very well..i honestly thought it was brand new. ive gone over the bike with a toothcomb and i have counted a total of 9 stone chips all over the bike. A 1cm scratch on part of the front fairing and a 1cm tear in the seat. I am very ainol yes..

It has a yoshi carbon slip on and a ventura rack thats all the mods its got on it at the moment.

My inteded use it just to commute 40kms return trip to work. And an occasional (once every couple of months) to mum and dads in new south wales which is a 800km return trip.

The seat it has is very comfy for my build i feel. And im too young for heated hand grips Wink not implying the older generation need them haha.

Im not looking to acheive much improvement just smoothe out some flat spots. I was just thinking keep the slip on..k&n air filter and air box mod secondsry butterflies (although im not sure why this is done any reason why would be nice) and a power commander or something like that.

Look forward to seeing ya'll round

Cheers ryan.

Hi Ryan and welcome aboard. All the GSX powerplants are virtually bullit proof, so 73k is nothing. As long as it has been serviced regularly. As I have said a thousand times before. The Bandit (GSXFA) are a great bike for someone who can use a screwdriver and a socket set.  You will find all the help you need here.  Most of them don't bite.  Laughing   Enjoy.

Welcome to the forum Ryan. I'd get the dealer to do a throttle body balance before deciding to fix the flat spots with a whole series of mods. It just might disappear. New plugs and air cleaner at the same time. If that doesn't fix it, then go down the more elaborate route. Cheers.

Im very mechanically minded ive ordered a carbtune and will do that once i get it.

I use to be a apprentice motor mechanic but i left because it was too much of a hobby. Doing my hobby for a living isnt enjoyable

Secondary butterfly removal stops the computer telling you how much throttle you can have. It seems to make the bike much more responsive

I found that I needed a PC3 after I fitted new headers with NO cat c.  It was running too lean and there was a chance of over heating. I'm pretty sure things are ok with just the butterflies removed, air box mod and slip on.  You will notice a big difference. The secondaries are easy. You can pull the TBs out the R/H side so you don't have to disconnect the throttle cables.

Welcome aboard. Lots of info here.
I'd be doing suspension before any engine work.
