  • 1200cc Streetfighter

    2002 Suzuki Bandit 1200s
    Yes it is a bike, can't we be different once and awhile? [img]{SMILIES_PATH}/wink.gif[/img]

    Q&A link

    Build began March 25, 2007 and will be a continuous project.

    The bike was originally bought as a salvage bike, been dropped hard. My main goal was to get the bike back to legal state and ride for a season. Now with winter set in, the projects have begun for next season.

    The mods I have currently;
    D&D Bolt on muffler
    Clear Alternatives Integrated Tail Light
    1" Lowering Links (may be switching back to the 2")
    LED Cat Eye Front Blinkers
    -1 Tooth AFAM Front Sprocket

    On The Agenda;
    Aztec8 7" Single Headlight (powdercoated black)
    Metallic Blue Paint (tail plastic, gas tank, front fender and misc. accent pieces)
    Bar End Mirrors (powder coated black)
    Holeshot Performance Stage 1 Jet Kit w/5* Timing Advancer
    Carb Sync
    TPS Recalibration (improves throttle response, yes its carburated but still it has a tps)
    Misc parts polishing
    GSXR1000 Rear Swing Arm (in planning to see whats required for the swap)

    Long Term Plans;
    GSXR1000 (05+) Inverted Fork Swap
    Custom Dual Exhaust w/D&D or Yosimura Cans
    GSXR1100 Cams
    Stage2 jet kit w/airbox delete
    Hayabusa Rear shock Coversion
    Belly Pan
    Rear tire hugger
    Either Powdercoated or Polished Rims

    Aztec8 Headlight

    Some teardown

    More photos to come, its only about 4 degrees out right now so its tough to work on it.

    Headlight mounted with a gazillion feet of harness to hide away somehow. Gauge mount and windscreen mount is in the works, need to get some steel and fab her up. Everything else is off the bike for paint, i just need to let the gas tank air out some then prep work begins.

      Slingin' the paints

      Next up the gas tank, its going to need some tlc to get it good again, a small dent up near the upper tree and some chips out of the paint right down to bare metal that have begun to rust a little. Some fiberglass jelly or whatever its called, should do the trick nicely to fill in the dent, then a skimmah of bondo to smooth it out.

          Fabbed up a windscreen, not sure if i like it or not yet. In the picture it looks flat, but it really is curved. The tank was also worked on, and painted back on the bike now. All we need now is some warm weather!

            Well it being a nice 42 degrees out today, I decided it was time to get her out for a rip! And man does it look good in the sunlight, not to mention it feels good to ride on something that is a shit ton faster than my shit box.

                      Well, the riding bug is starting to bite again, although ive still got like 2 months ive been killing the time working on the bike. Started back in the fall fabbing up a dual exhaust system using Hayabusa mid pipes and mufflers. I tried to use the header from the Hayabusa as well but even modding it proved to be more of a bitch. Stock header will go back on with a custom "Y" split to the busa mids.

                      Also got a Holeshot Performance Stg 1 jet kit with timing advancer, ran it a lil rich last fall so fouled some plugs. but up top that thing is a beast. Not to mention gearing changes -1 AFAM sprocket in the front and +7 Vortex Racing sprocket in the rear, super touchy.

                      Rims are currently stripped ready for a poilishing, well the lips at least.

                      Once the taxes are back, the GSXR1000 front fork swap will be under way, and a headlight change as well. Ill be doing up the Aztec8 dual headlight instead of the single.
