19 Jun 2016 - Bandit Build 5b

Bandit Build #5 was the orginal build on this bike a couple of years ago. It didn't sell, so time for a re-build aka Build 5b.
The plan:
1. CBR 929 with 1995 GSXR 750 Forks. This gives better trail and rake numbers. It has a 2mm additional offset when compared with the 1995 GSXR 750 tri...

27 May 2016 - Busa Shock on 1250

I have a 2008 and last year the shock gave up the ghost.  So, all winter searched out the different replacement shocks, and also read about the Busa replacement option.  I found a lot on here regarding Busa shocks and B1200 but not so much regarding 1250.  So, if this has been beat to death, shoot m...

Looking at a couple of 1250s, are there any downsides to getting the fully faired one, or is it just a case of personal preference?

I'd be doing my own maintenance, are the full fairings an obstruction/a pain to get off?

07 Apr 2016 - Fuel hose routing ??

 Working on a 1992 GSF 400(the fast Red one). Prior to me arriving on the scene , there was a real knucklehead at work on this bike!

 I understand the Vacuum line from intake to pump side of petcock.

 I understand the fuel feed from petcock to lower port on carb bank.

So I've been working on a GSX600F katana which has the same carbs as the GSF400 (BST33SS).
Like my bandit, it has the 4 rubber plugs on the idle jet, and it will draw fuel via the passage from the main jet.
The plugs on this set have shrunken and don't fit properly anymor...

Will it fit a 1991-1993 400?

22 Mar 2016 - B4 Search Results

I've spent the last month working on my B4 just to get it to start without killing the battery every time. I figured it was something to do with the carbs because it would want to tick over but just take ages to actually fire, which is one of the reasons I ended up on this forum.

The bik...

I installed the 97.5 main jet and positioned the needle height at the third clip with the adjustment screws 2.5 turns out.

So I took it for it's first ride the other day.  ...

07 Mar 2016 - Carburetor Installation

I'll be reinstalling the carbs on my 2001 1200 today after cleaning the jets.  I always have a terrible time reattaching the rear/open throttle cable end to the "throttle wheel"--you can't really see it or feel it with the carbs loosely in place.  The last time I did this, it involved ...
