Bandit Fever has got me!

Post  Medway77 on Mon 03 Jul 2017, 8:54 pm


Hi, I live in Newcastle and this is my first Bandit and I'm loving this bike. After the GSXR600 I wanted something less revvy but with more power. I thought the lights were poor and then discovered the dip headlight had collapsed inside the sealed unit. Thankfully Youtube showed me how to "bake it" and get the thing apart. Bloody stupid design. The headlight is still very poor. I'm sure every owner has said that. I want to add some extra lights to it. I will check the other posts. I did see a B12 parked at the Newcastle supermoto with some cool LED lights mounted on a bracket above the Oil cooler. 

I noticed a few members had listed previous bikes so here goes with my sad list... Recent to first. GSXR600 SRAD, SV650S, BMW R65(ouch!), FZR400R (brilliant little bike), XTZ750, TR1, CB250RS, GN400(ouch), DR400S, TS100ER, FS1E-DX. 

Looking forward to participating.

Cheers bandit people! 

Ali.

Welcome aboard.
Poor headlight? Wait until you ride a GSF1250S Suzuki installed a couple of birthday candles and a reflector and sent them out the door Rolling Eyes
