how light can i get 600 FI bike. a bike that weighs 350 stock. I know what to do but would 310 dry no fairings be feasible?
TI Bolts, battery, exhaust, remove fairings, wheel swap.

not looking for anything hardcore like frame gusseting, alum racebuilt sub ect.


also, educate me on the ram air systems with fuel injection. the tuning. i'd be buying a 600 without the ducts and assembly. i'm figuring fi will compensate somewhat but not looking for shit mpg. haven't really done my homework on it tbh.


option 2. bandit 1200 near me. GEN 1. 80k. he wants 1800. i offer 1400. Is it worth it to buy a 80k bandit. less rpms less stress big motor i know ect. I don't want it for 5k miles and have to spend 1k making it a 1216 for example. I have a boiler emporium btw. this doesn't come with pods tho, not sure about the jetting. a bandit, under 20k with exhaust, pods and stg2 jetting is worth about 2k imo on a good day.

I'm thinking even 1300, but not trying to insult a guy who puts 80k on his bike. would pass even at 1500.


option 3. zx12. Looking around 3k. shitty mpg, insurance class sucks.

I love my B12. It's never gonna be a lightweight, and I'm always wanting more power now that the suspension has been upgraded at both ends, but I'm going to hold onto it.

For reference, my first bandit had 23k miles, pods, full exhaust, and jetting for $1400. My second had 35k miles, slip on exhaust and appropriate jetting for $1600. The second was in significantly better shape when I bought it and it shows. I wouldn't be too worried about the mileage on the bandit motor as long as compression checks out.
