Introduce your Bandit
« on: March 30, 2006, 07:03:05 PM »
Hey guys,

I guess you could say I post a lot of off topic posts, but being so new to the bandit community, I love learning more about fellow Bandit owners. If you are bored and got a couple minutes to spare, go ahead and post up some info on your bike. (year, mileage, history, mods etc) I'll start it off

1991 GSF400
Just turned 28,000 miles
I bought this bike with 27,600 miles on it. Previous owner was another college student who worked extensively on the bike with his father. Owner before that was a Girl, (license plate used to be WENDYZ)
Bike is red, I believe the tank was repainted since it so shiny compared to the plastic bits. I've got the headlight fairing which I guess is rare.
Right now the bike is stock, a slip on will soon be installed.

1991 400 Bandit
Silver Frame
Silver Wheels
Tank, plastics, and Flyscreen soon to be painted black
Just passed 8600 miles last week (bought it with about 7800 last October)
Slip on holeshot exhaust

I bought this bike for $500 from a friend who had thought the coils had stopped working but what it really needed were some new plugs.  Love the bike and I intend to keep her around for years to come.

Not too much to say, but here goes...

93 GSF400 with 16,500mi

stock red

purchased 2 years ago with ~14,300mi on it from a guy who raced Ducati Monsters (or was it his son?)

Yoshi 4-2-1 pipe and can (growls at idle, and absolutely screams above  10K!)

#105 Main jets

removed hugger and chainguard

supersport handlebars - slightly lower than stock

Black, F1 style mirrors - looking at bar end mirrors this summer.

Thinking about that Gimble seat cowl, but then, I'm still single and I plan on putting lots o really, really, really hot chicks on back this summer!
I've actually read 'Zen and the Art of Motorcycle Maintenance'.... it sucked!

Some interesting Bandits on this site. :) Good to see some fettled 400s.

Mine's pretty stock (at the mo);

'89 Jap import B4
Stainless race can
Custom Paint in Suzuki racing colours
2ng gen B12 shock
K+N filter
Dynojet kit
Errmm...teeny arrow indicators :roll:

End of summer it comes off the road;

powder coated frame *mystery colour*
powder coated wheels with polished rim *again, mystery colour*
Lots of polished bits (engine casings, peg hangers, yokes etc)
GSX-R swingarm (also to be polished :wink: )
Progressive fork springs
Lightly ported head with some GSX-R cams (maybe)
Twin headlights

Cant wait to get it all sorted but i'd rather ride it this summer than keep it off the road. :bigok:
Thanks, Toby.

This post may be beer fuelled...

Well, mine sounds about average,But here goes.
It is a 91 B4,red in color and has 18,135 miles on it.
That is what the speedo says anyway.
 Got it in a computer trade. (I built him a new system)
 I have just rebuilt the top end,and also the forks.
He let it set in his shed for only 6 yrs :duh:
So the rings had stuck to the pistons.
Any way it is still 100% stock, but it is a work in progress.
  Still waitng for the front fender to come in.
and then new brake pads.
  And it has a sweet sound when it is running!!!
If it wont go,use a bigger hammer!

We've got an intruder! :lol:

Shit, now i ended up in here... might as well say the stuff..:
1991 B4, typical red, single disk version.

It's quite standard but looks like hell, i mean: I put a chrome front thingie on it, but isn't placed well yet and the front fender is black  :roll:

For the moment it's standing ready (also bought the Argentinan CDI, works perfectly! fired right up!), just waiting till i solve the charging problem....wel actually the forks are leaking but that's my noob project for summer.
'91 B4 almost bone stock:
GK73 Inner forks& Springs
B6 Rear Shock

92' B400, completely stock.  Still has stock tires and everything.  Only 2500 miles, not running correctly  :boohoo: Working despererately to get this masterpiece running like a champ.  Everything is bone stock, not a scratch on it, looks like it rolled off the showroom floor and stopped running (I think that's what it did anyways)
