New Bike

2016 Suzuki Bandito 1250.
All the goodies.
The other day i installed heated grips. Can I just say...do this.
Seriously. This is an easy install, and the best hundred bucks you'll spend on a motorcycle. Quality product.
This bike - i have ridden everything. This thing is best described, I think, as "competent."
Such a pleasure to ride.
I mean...seriously. Just a great street bike.

Nice! I have a 2007. Doesn't look like many changes have been made...

Added Penske rear shock w/reservoir, front fork springs. Sargent seat.

Also Motodynamic rear tail light replaces blinkers, cleans up the rear end.

Check out Holeshot/Dale Walker. He's the Man for this bike.

What brand of heated grips?

Oxford.
The wiring is simple.
The only boltage I had to mess with was the two battery terminals and mounting the bracket for the control module to the two clutch master cylinder mounting bolts.
The control module double-stickies to the bracket.
The grips and control module have screw-in connectors and I tidied it up with zip ties.
BAM - hot hands.
The tune is done: electronic module under seat, ti Arrow header and Yosh can, KN air filter.

The suspension is perfect as-is.

Very cool. The Bandit is a terrific bike. As a former Suzuki dealer, I have always said the Suzuki Bandit was the most underappreciated bike on the road.

Yep, very nice. I had an old 1200S 2003 that my son and I shared, and 2 years ago customized a 2007 for a friend who then a couple months later let his son ride it and he looped it. Just got it finished and ready for round III.

Well , by kid I mean late 30's, had some riding experience on Hardley's, so yeah...not too familiar with what throttle inputs can do to momentum changes on a 'real' bit of riding tackle.

Here are a couple of attempts at a walkaround video of the finished work. Fantastic paint & bodywork by my nephew Josh Gilliam!

536lbs on the scale this morning, as it sits, 3/4 tank and an empty trunk-pack.
560lbs is book weight.
the stock exhaust was a beast.

Just got back from a lunchtime ride.
Well, an extended lunch.
Perfecto.
Even stopped to adjust my ear plugs and happened to pull over right in front of a blackberry smorgasbord. Sticky fingers.. So yummy.

That pipe and chin spoiler look pretty sweet on that.

You are right about that stock can, they could shoot it out of a cannon for more effectiveness.
