  1. yeah i agree things are different under load but it'll get your mixtures in the right ballpark, it does say in the instructions to go through the rev range !!! my old XS11 had a small flat spot at 3-4000rpm and i could see it was running weak with the colourtune, so lifted the needles and the flat spot has gone with a nice blue flame. it takes the guess work out of it and at £40 its a dam sight cheaper than a dyno run for us who are skint
  2. yeah got it off the bay £40 new. they are a good bit of kit and can help get your mixture set right through the rev range. have you got another exhaust system to try on ?
  3. how does the bike run ? has it still got an airbox ? an exhaust change or an end can doesn't really make much difference, ive just bought myself a colourtune to set mine up, works a treat.
  4. 750 will drop straight in, 1100/1200 engines are a bit taller though.
  5. they will, also the tanks but not the front mudguards
  6. I get my seat covers off begay, theirs a seller on their that sells good quality covers but not cheap, ive had a few off them but at £45 a time. just as good as OEM i think.
  7. the best part is trying to drill the hole in the right place
  8. they won't stay tight on the bars, you need to drill for the peg. or wrap tape round the bars. ive used some shim steel in the past, you can get it in sheets.
  9. I think widening the original wheels is a good idea (if its possible) as it makes the bike more OEM but with the benefit of better tyres. but far easier to fit modern wheels.
  10. yeah i know what you mean about the US spec smaller GSX tank, the larger GSX UK tank works with a GS 1000 tail unit like on my bike. but the GS1000G tank will look ok.
  11. it would, and you can do a burn out without trashing the tyre
  12. not something that give much trouble but could it be the pulse coils ? or maybe its a wiring fault ?
  13. whats the condition of the plugs after it stops running, are they wet/sooty or dry ? could be a fuel problem !!!
  14. im hoping that was a misprint ???????
  15. you can't beat an old bike with upgraded wheels and suspension, what tank are you using ?
  16. ive had a few bandits, i think they are great bikes and ive had so much fun on em and they are tough as old boots.
  17. TonyGee


    im no fan of faired bikes but that looks good Joseph
  18. got to agree on the bandit frame, they are pretty stiff but let down by the suspension which can be upgraded.
  19. noooooo they take away the fun of looking for the 6th gear you haven't got
  20. I remember once at the streetfighter's do at Sheffield one of the stunt bikes was a B12, it was a red hot day and Garry Rothwell was doing a burn out till the tyre popped, the headers where glowing red I asked him later about it and he said he does it all the time on that bike. tough as old boots
  21. if it hasn't been totally abused 50K is nothing on the oil cooled engine.
  22. ive had 6 bandits and worked on countless others and the vast majority where a bit on the rattley side !!!! saying that ive heard others that where quiet.
