First post here, just thought I would share a pic of my two ladies.
Only 28.9 Miles on her so far. Just got her a few weeks ago and it hasn't stopped raining yet. First clear night was tonight so I had to take her out for a spin. Thanks to all you guys on the forum for everything. I researched A LOT before I even took my MSF course, much less purchased a bike.
It's off of a Bandit 1250. 90 bucks on ebay, and frankly I got lucky.
if you want to mod the bike, go put a delkevic exhaust, or a HID lowbeam in it.
those are far and away my two favorite things I've done to the bike, hands down.
A 14" steel muffler from delkevic is like... 140 bucks, sounds awesome, and looks awesome. The 18" muffler with it's baffle in is absolutely as quiet as stock. the engine noise is drowned by wind at 40mph. baffles out is just about right though. I'll try and youtube an engine movie sometime soon. Delkevic isn't repped nearly enough on youtube, for JUST HOW GOOD this pipe sounds. No joke.
I would like to know what year of 1250 you got your seat off of if its important and did you have to modify any.I heard they don't fit but yours looks really good and I find the stock seat a little uncomfortable.Thanks
Hey Void, where did you get the flush mount indicators from? I went to the parts department by the dealer today and they said all the flush mount indicators they have for the bike wouldn't fill the hole.
Voided. what mirrors did you put on your bike? I do not like the stock GSX mirrors, yours look great and with the turn signals I could eliminate another ugly part on my bike. Also how were they to install? your help would be appreciated.
Just picked up a sweet '08 GSX-F and wanted to know who has possibly done a mod on the fender. Wanted to eliminate it with minimum cutting and wiring.
Heck I would even be interested in who possibly had a the fender completely removed and used a integrated tail light.
Also, wanted to know...
I bought this bike March 2010 with a hair over a mile on it off the showroom floor. Within a few weeks I had it tore apart and started modding it. Heres the list-

i am currently on an aprilia caponord. i have put 57,000 trouble free miles on it since i bought it new (2006 uncrated in 2009) in october '09. great bike. stocke except for leos and a better map. i was hoping to do at least 100,000 miles for sure.
then some ancient woman runs my bike over...
So I found a little baby turbo charger that works well in small engines from .4L up to 1.2L. I figure us being at .6L would be a good middle ground, however I need lower compression pistons, the 10:1 pistons won't cut it for F\I, I'll have detonation like crazy.

HID Low beams from Hidsrus.com - 10,000ks, had to drill 2 holes to run the wires from the HID wiring harness through the OEM light cap. Other then that fit pretty...
