G'day guys and girls

Post  Spud on Mon 06 Mar 2017, 1:34 pm

Hi people
I've been looking at this forum for a while now. I finally decided to register myself, and hope to join in on some topics.
I currently ride a BMW 1200rt and a Suzuki GSX650F. I'm planing to do a bit of a custom job on the 650 in the future, and might need some info down the track.
I live on the north side of Brisbane.

Welcome to the forum Spud ..............the 650f looks like it shares many parts with the 1250 .

Hi Paul

Thanks for the welcome

I used to have an 08 bandit, loved the bike, but my ego got to me. I traded it in a 09 Repsol Fireblade. I want to see if the 1250 swing arm and front end fit onto the 650f.

Welcome to the forum Spud

I would imagine the front end and swing arm would fit with little or any modification

Hi madmax

Thanks for the welcome

That is my thought too, the frame, motor ect all look the same, so will have a go soon

Thanks again for the welcome. Good decision Ewok, but I still miss the Fireblade. Don't miss the sore ass and rists though. Got my 1200rt for comfort now. Maybe I'm just getting old

Thanks Chook, Truck and 2Wheelsagain for the welcome. I think the best thing about this forum is that I haven't yet come across any trolls yet!
The one thing I have noticed is the amount of knowledge on this forum, great!
