Real Men Ride Naked.

Post  bigboresuzuki on Mon 16 Oct 2017, 3:01 pm

Got that title from Cam's re- introductory. Wow that bike registration in NSW is over the top. All of Oz should be like W.A rego...one price, doesn't matter if it's a V8. Laughing Should make Licences just one, country wide too.
  Welcome back Cam. I have had my Burgundy '08 1250 Naked for a couple years and it had 46,000 k on it when I bought it. Now on 65k.Stock apart from the pipe and deleted 1250 stickers. Have had Suzuki's most of my life my first being a TS 185 at age 15.

  The move to a six speed is awesome, my previous bike being a worked '78 GS 1000. I tell people ( non bikers ) that at 5000 revs, just over half of redline, in sixth gear I'm doing 150 kmh, just cruising for the Bandit. The clutch has the usual Suzuki rattle like all my old air cooled 1000's and 1100's and hasn't slipped yet. The guy I bought it off tried telling me it had a dry clutch Question , what a laugh, I think he thought the clutch was kaput.
 
  I'm about to do a 'Gus' on the fuel pump, and clean the filters / screens. I have a broken foot at present so plenty of time to tinker and troll the pages of this mighty fine forum. I have been a member of the GS Resources Forum in the U.S of A for a number of years and like to throw a spanner at my bikes, so thanks in advance to all you people that have contributed on here.

   Happy days and may The Suzuki Gods be with you. affraid

Thanks for the welcome guys. Wish I had bought the second bandit I looked at as well. A 96 model for 2k, the guy was desperate for cash. Would have made a good visitors bike to show them around the Coast.
