Hey fast al gordo, Nice looking limited edition you have there  :congrats:

It must have had an engine swap though as '91's didnt have VC motors, they were only introduced in '93 according to what I have read

Squichy - Wow, she looks in great condition! A mate of mine had that exact same one (except the exhaust, but same colors etc) during high school

Have a look here

Limited edition model made in August 91.

Hi,  I bought a Bandit GSF 400 for my girlfriend a while ago. It's a red European one in really good state (22500km), it looks new! Only the bike is not running atm.

Wow, that's a very clean B4.  How can it look that nice and not run?  We will be interested to hear what you find out about its mechanical condition.

Also, very pretty girlfriend.  Lucky guy.

I google more and English so you get more results, but I will sign up for the Dutch forum as well. Groningen is a nice city :)

I feel very lucky, thanks!! I just made a post about getting the bike fixed and what I tried so far. http://forums.banditalley.net/index.php?topic=13974.0
Also the fact that it doesn't run gave me a good deal on it.

Ah, finally found the hello thread!

I've owned a '99 600 (had it a month before it was written off after being rear-ended by a cage), an '09 650SA (had it for eight days before it was stolen), an '08 650 (had it one year and one day before it was written off when I was batted across a motorway by a cage) and now own a '96 400, affectionately called 'the wreck'.



Yeah, she's a little poorly at the moment, but I'm getting there. If I only had this forum to go by I might start thinking this is the natural state for a Bandit 400. It's almost as if they're attracted to owners who have no clue how to look after them as babies.

Wow, you have had some bad luck in the past!

I think the problem is that we purchase Bandits from people that do not know how to look after them! We then want to make them pretty again.

Goodluck with your project !
