New older Bandit

Post  Farrider on Mon 17 Jul 2017, 4:19 pm

I previously owned a triumph Tiger sport after 6 months I couldn't live with its problems. Enter a 2010 Bandit 1250. Best thing I have ever done. Im 60 and 75 kts yet I can chuck the Bandit around like a 250. Great bike only wish I had looked at them earlier. Cheers Greg

Welcome to the forum Greg. What sort of issues did you experience with the Tiger?

Cheers

Starting when hot was luck of the draw. When starting from cold the cam chain would rattle for about 5 minutes. Dealer told me they all do that and to wait until problem gets worse for a proper diagnosis. This all on a bike I bought new in October last year.

Welcome Greg, the Bandit isn't perfect but it'd be hard to beat it for Bang for Buck, enjoy the forum.

BTW, which part of this great country are you from?

Welcome along. Sounds like the triumph dealer was an idiot. Nothing wrong with the tried and proven bandit though. Not the latest tech but simple and reliable
