    So I just picked up this $400 dollar beauty to basically just finish up and legal up. it WAS a 96' bandit 600, PO had plans to do a gsxr 1000 tail conversion, but decided not to, so now it just needs brackets for the seat basically. This is my second, my current DD bike is an 07' ninja 250...

    Had trouble uploading my pictures, but here is my bike- favorite build/project I've ever done. I am co-owner of a small shop and I recently wrote this up for a build from last fall. I recently started digging back into the bike to fab up a few more cool things so it kind of resurrected all my...

    So after not having a bike for over a year, the other one having been written off by a car that decided it would drive on the wrong side of the road, I finally have a new bike. It's a 2006, Suzuki Bandit 650 K6, 19500 miles on the clock. It has a few small scuffs on the exhaust and screen, as...

    So, I'm finally looking around for a bike (Bandit 650). But, I can't decide on a colour scheme. I get kind of obsessed when it comes to the colour of my bikes, but I'm having some trouble deciding on colours to do my bike. The bike will most likely be light blue/Grey/Black, as those are the most...

    Well! It is winter again up here in Can-ah-dA. *cues quiet music, and prompt rolls for Mr. Freeman* As the snow begins to fall the motorcycles will seek shelter in the bowels of manmade structures. This particular story details the transformation one such motorcycle will undergo while it...

    So I just started looking at insurance again on a Bandit (Which I'm hopefully getting soon, if the solicitors will hurry up!). The main reason I wanted to get a Bandit over any other bike, was because the insurance was cheap; £350 Third part Fire & Theft for a year. Now, for a 19 year old...

Only came across this site earlier today, but everything looks great and seems to be an extremely friendly and welcoming environment! So, on to bikes and my story (it's pretty long, just...

    It is about time I started a build thread for my SV. I plan on having my bike ready by Ride Of The Century and would like to win SVOTM/ Fighter Of The Month for that month. So let me begin! :Evil_smile:

    Right, I joined this forum a while back, then some silly bint decided to pull out infront of me, meaning my front end got destroyed, along with a couple of bones. I've finally got the insurance sorted, and looking to get her back on the road, and head down the streetfighter route. To get her...

    As the title says: "Will a Fazer 600 99 shock fit a bandit 600 98!? I hate how squidgy the bandit's rear suspension is and my mate has a fazer shock going, how would it fit and what would it be like? ANY HELP WOULD BE GREATLY APPRECIATED! :D

    WTB: Bandit In-Tank Fuel Filter or Petcock I know this is a long shot, but does anyone have a spare OEM in-tank fuel filter for a Suzuki bandit? The one that attaches to the petcock. For whatever reason this bike I'm working on for a buddy is missing it. It has a universal in-line filter but...

    I currently have a tail tidy for my mk1 B12 (on it when I bought it), but I want it even cleaner. Looking to transform it into a fighter, and am thinking of an Yamaha R6 tail. I see a lot of people doing this and I like the look. Anyone have any experience with this or similar mod? Do I need...

    I just got a B12 last week and it came with a set of Aztec 8 dual 5-3/4" headlights: http://aztec8.com/catalog/i32.html And I want to trade for a single 7" round headlight. Stock Bandit preferred, but I'm not too picky. Let me know what you've got.

    Hey guys! can anyone point me in the direction of a reasonably priced belly pan that would fit my '08 GSX650F?

    So I took the bandit out for the first time the other day and it always had a small oil leak that would get a little thrown up on the block when I was riding and leave about a quarter sized spot when I parked it but on the mile that I rode it it left a splatter of oil on my left foot and I can't...

    :suzuki: SOOOO..... I have been crawling this site as a guest for a hell of a long time and having been inspired by many of the members rides. Major props to Cabbie on that mock up and subframe for the blade with that k5 tail section. That job was TITS! Gave me the courage to take my Sawzall...
