NOW I'm finding some of the old guard!  I lost my poor ol' B12 to stupidity and a broken crankcase.  I'm getting back in the fold tomorrow with an '09 12fiddy!  Wish me luck.... :yikes:

My 1999 is still running strong.  Did have to go thru the carbs and replace emulsifier tubes and get rid of the Dynojet kit that was in it.  Dales stuff worked out great and she flies!

Hello Beejkay!
Good to hear from you. Please add to the threads... we need ya! Tell us about your bike... what you like about it, changes you've made.

I have a feeling that, within a short time, air-cooled B12's are going to line up with Collectibles like CBX's and BKings.. well, maybe!

Emulsion tubes: I DID change mine at some point along the way... not because I really had to, but because I was Hitting & Hoping, trying to nail down some performance flaw.
What I DID find along that route was that my NEEDLES had worn, developed a STEP up on the barrel. Fortunately the Mfr replaced them for free... despite being pretty old. Changing them did clean up the roll-on some.

By all means, check back in here. I've got 140K on my '98 B12... have been through every system on the bike now...right down to the crank bearings and transmission shafts.. so I have a bit of info.

Wow, fantastic pics!!  Your gen 1 looks great!!

I visit Maximum-Suzuki regularly, but it's pretty damn slow there, too.  The UK board (banditforum.co.uk) has more bike related stuff and activity, but lots of folks are more active on the various Facebook Bandit groups.
