This is a list of the modifications I've made to the Bandit:
  • Micron oval race can. This is loud but unleashed about an extra 15BHP
  • Corbin "Gunfighter & Lady" seat
  • A higher screen for the fairing
  • A good set of engine bars
  • A sports rack
  • Carbon-look hugger
  • Stainless brake hoses
  • EMC rear shock
  • Scottoiler
  • Chrome radiator grill
  • Replaced fasteners (alloy or stainless)

Living With A Suzuki Bandit

Advantages

Disadvantages

  • For an all-rounder, it is quick
  • Handles quite well
  • Pulls like a train, plenty of low down grunt
  • Easy to ride, you don't need to put a lot of effort in to go fast
  • Great fun
  • The running costs are horrendous (eats rear tyres)
  • At times the engine seems harsh
  • It has no "soul"
  • Build quality isn't so good
