PaulVS: Come to think of it Jim... with all the problems you're having with Bandit tip-overs... you ought to just sell it and buy this bike to match your helmet...



Looks like much more your speed.


Does the fairing preclude Jim from having the little white basket up front, or can it still be mounted?

I would think he can easily mount the lil' white basket behind the 'salmon' colored feather accoutrement on the seat.

Suziblue, you'll get a kick outta this one:  I go to my local Suzuki dealer and then hang out afterwards smoking a ciggie, lounging around my bike in the lot and just being, you know, so COOL!!  I mean, Jimmy Dean, on his best day, had nothing on me standing there, helmet hanging off the bar, feeling like I was on top of the world.  

Suddenly a pack of young toughs, all on nasty looking sport bikes, zoom up and jump off their steeds.  They all just kinda took me and my pretty little bike and my pretty little helmet in and then, as one, shook their heads and headed into the stealership.  I felt about three inches tall, threw my butt away and jumped on the Bandit and took off out of there, tail between my legs.......oh, the ups and downs of life!

New problem!  I finally painted the fuschia a bright candy apple red and it looks really good.  But I covered the visor with duct tape for the painting session.  Took the duct tape off and it seemed to leave a sorta residue.  Tried to take that stuff off but then I realized I was taking off a thin layer on the visor itself.  The visor is okay but sure not 'like new' anymore!  Must be a little film of something on the durn things..... :roll:

You should be able to clean/polish your visor. The duct tape probably left a residue.A felt polishing wheel and wax will repolish the visor. Be careful not to buff on high speed or it will melt.

If it is residue, try eucalyptus oil then soapy water.

I never buff at high speed!  Thanks for the tips - I don't believe it's a residue but I'm still not 100% sure.
