Is there anything that you really miss from the Bandit/GSX?

A question for those that have gone to the dark side.

Is there anything that you really miss from the Bandit/GSX?

It may well be something we just take for granted while we're on the Bandit, or is there nothing about it you miss?

A bit OT from what you posted(although I still have my Bandit), after riding my brothers FA I wish the bandit had a gear indicator on the dash  Crying or Very sad

I know there are aftermarket ones to be had, but a factory one would have been nice.


It may not have been the reply you were looking for, but at least you got a bump  Very Happy

I was more thinking along the lines of what did the Bandit do that you miss, what did it have that you mis, not so much what it doesn't have

Well I did say it was a bit OT  Very Happy   

If I were to sell it, the first thing I think I would miss is the sheer pulling power the Bandit has  Cool


There you go bro, another bump  Cool

I miss not being able to see at night Razz
I miss the bottom end torque but I don't miss running out of puff at 7k Embarassed
I miss average brakes and ordinary front suspension Crying or Very sad

I really really miss cheap and simple servicing though Idea

Being able to see at night lets you see all that scary stuff that you are better off not being able to see..............ignorance can be bliss  Razz Laughing

@2wa did you not do a full tune etc. on your old Bandit? Mine doesn't run out of power at 7K. Dyno says around 8500 with stock cams. Will rev to 10500, but not worth it unless doing a wheelstand and then you'll have an ubrupt halt to proceedings as you mouse trap back to earth on the ignition cut Smile
