hum says V but looks to be a normal 400 motor and not the V cheers nice bike


It's not a VV model, it just had no stickers on when I got it and the only ones I could find were the V ones  :duh:

My bandit:

B250, 45hp version, bone stock. 31,000km, Japan import.

Black frame, tank and tail, silver/bronze coloured rims.

Plans are to clean it up, leave it as is, and save up for a big bandit when i'm off restrictions.

that said, i'm in the process of designing up a twin headlight conversion to give it a more streetfighter look.
Sheppo..

1990 Black Bandit 250 - stock (at the moment)

yeah leave it as is, as in no modifications to the motor, exhaust, intake, etc. it's only a 250 and it'll never be fast enough to warrent the $$$ spent on modding it.

in under a year i'll be off restrictions and then it's big bore time, and that means i've gotta get saving for the new bike! so no money for mods to the B250.

GSXR-1000 2002mdl is appealing to me at this moment, good for track days!

Naaa... you need a 1000 on the street so you can beat all those Bugatti Veyrons& McLaren F1s in the 0-60 races.  :wink:

A buddy just got rid of his Aprillia Mille track bike because it was way too much and got a DRZ 400sm for the street and a 05 GSXR 600 for the track instead. Really, unless you're last name is Spies, Mladin or Biaggi, you'll never get everything out of a literbike on the street or the track.

Before you think he's some rich schmoe, he's a track day nut and had a prepped SV before the Mille (got the Mille for like 7k) and had more fun on less HP. You can only go so fast in a corner...

You have a lot of ground to cover!  I would like to know more about how you decided on getting a bike that needs repair, since you are not yet a rider.  A very interesting path you chose...

I been there and done that. It's slow and sucks. Once you're done, take it to a mechanic to get it all checked over... safety first. The bandit 400 has one of the lowest seat hights I've seen. I'm sure you could lower it further if really required. Good luck.

It's more fun to ride a slow bike fast than a fast bike slow.

Easy to explain- I'm not rich  :lol: - My BF is a bike mechanic, and going to teach me most of it, nice eh?? When I decided I wanted to ride a bike, I thought I would be better off knowing what's what and how things work, so I know how to maintain and run it properly. Hopefully I'll enjoy it. The whole CBT and Test is a different matter  :lol:

  :grin: Thanks for stating about the whole saftey thing - But as I said above ^^^ The BF is a bike mechanic, and a stickler for things like that (I'll propbably be wrapped in bubble wrap, when I eventually get on the bike)  :lol: :lol: - But  :thanks: for saying about the seat hight - It's something I'm worried about - as all other bike's I've tried are just too big - If this doesn't work I'll be learning how to make a chopper  :taz: :taz: :lol:

Just for my personal edification I have a question. What is the acronym BF, boy friend or best friend?  :popcorn2:

 :welcome::congrats: on your purchase.
One quick question though:
Did you buy a fixer-upper car and and rebuild it before you learned to drive?  :lol:

 :clap::beers: to you for wanting to learn the mechanical aspects of motorcycles anyway.  :bigok:
(Most of what you learn will apply to anything with an engine, so it's all good.)

Some of us here are old enough to remember that's how you HAD to be to be a rider of even a new bike. Fortunately, those days are behind us. Most of us would much rather ride than wrench.  :motorsmile:

Oh yeah, I remember now I saw it on a TV commercial about texting messages where the phrase "My BFF Jill" = "My best friend Jill". So BF = boy friend. Oh crap, I have to go punch out my neighbor!

BF generally means boyfriend in england
