Longer travel suspension for Bandit 1200
« on: October 24, 2019, 11:22:42 AM »
Just picked up an 01 Bandit very inexpensively and want to improve her manners on dirt roads. I'm thinking the DL1000 fork tubes would slide right into the Bandit tripple trees, so if I can source a suitable rear shock and increase the ride height accordingly I'd be half way there. Anyone done this or contemplated the technical difficulties I'd face?

FWIW, I'm perfectly happy with the stock engine tune and have no interest in hustling down the road like it was a track day. I just want to be able to take any road I see with some confidence.

And I like the Bandit better than the Vstroms I've had   :grin:
