  1. Oilcooled noob here so pardon my ignorance... If you were to build a bike from the frame up using a GSXR 1100 or Bandit 1200 engine, would you choose the GSXR 1100 engine/frame or Bandit 1200 engine/frame and why? Which is the better engine/frame? Is the Bandit 1200 frame stiff enough for trackday duty or should I be looking at the GSXR 1100 frame? It appears that the B12 engine bolts up into the GSXR 1100 frame so that may be an option to get a newer engine in an older but stiffer frame?

  6. Modern liter bikes come fitted with a 525 chain standard. These modern liter bikes are pushing 200 plus horsepower at the crank. I think our bikes will be just fine with a 520 or 525 chain in a good brand like DID, EK, RK etc.
  7. I have 17 front 48 rear tooth 520 sprockets on my GS1000 to maintain the stock gearing ratio of 2.82
