easy. its a mk2 bandit so was always unsure if it ever qualified. plus is a bandit eh... fucking bandits.... lol

According to 'The Rules' it qualifies as a heavily modified Blandit. It is a great example of how with ingenuity and imagination even a Mk 2 Blandit can be interesting.

Basic question, but how rideable are these setups (talking about the more reasonable 230-250 hp bikes shown above) ?

I'm thinking spirited riding mode ON, speeding up to a bend, brakes, downshift, revs go up, turbo kicks in due to exhaust surge, and so you're lifting the front wheel while on the angle you're leaning over to take said bend ? 

Thats basically what caused the Renault Super 5GT turbo for example to go in straight lines when cornering back in the day xD

 

Perfectly usable my one is, it's light, handles and is very fast. Thousands of road miles also. IMG_20201020_152223.thumb.jpg.57b648480cba83551a14caf51d8a20e9.jpg

Mine isn't that fast, but that step in my seat is there for a reason!! First I had my old seat on, but when I opend her up I was almost sitting on the tail piece.

Also with the step in the seat it's easier to keep it under control.

 

I do start to think that my bike has more HP then I think..

When my bike was running way to lean and with the ignition too much advanced it cranked out 150HP. Hayabusa's crank out 160HP on that dyno, and when I fiddled around with the ignition timing and put bigger jets i it it gaind quite a bit more power, con rod snapping much ;)

my 2 turbo bikes

my current play thing is the infamous 'Pyro' FBM kit 1216 gsxr motor in GSX ET frame. 300hp at the wheel on race fuel

my long term project wheelie bike. aiming for 300hp again but with a short wheelbase. probably going to convert to Fuel Injection too

‘90 750L

EFI, Borgwarner snail :)
200hp even at the rear wheel @1bar. Extremely streetable- so much so that I’ve even built a seat for my son to come along for a ride ( it hides under the rear seat cowling). It’s also fast enough to push 180-190 at the bonneville salt flats on the intermediate course.

Mine, know awaiting surgery to have motec M84 fitted and  a list of stuff as long as my arm to do, not sure if I'll ever get it going or not.

Cheers SRR

Why did you choose for this setup?

Because how you have it you have both a long exhaust and intake..

No, it's M84 the cheap mans M800.

Cheers SRR

Shows how long i've been out of the Motec loop! I was aware of the M800 as that was the natural upgrade from the M8 I last used but the M84 is now a deffo option as I do have 8 injectors to control sequentially!
