Just Picked Up a 03' 1200s Bandit

Post  dominick2006 on Mon Sep 08, 2014 11:20 am

I just picked 2003 Suzuki Bandit 1200s for $1850 with 14,409 mi. Hopefully I will get to throughly enjoy it like I did my ZX550. I was wondering does anybody else get a jerky feeling when cruising at a low rpm?

If its around the 3k rpm mark then its usually down to the emission restrictions to make them environmentally friendly. You can tune it out with carb kits and ignition advancers Very Happy (did this on my ZX9R)

thanks for the reply tiger .my mk1 has a 4 into 1 pipe with a motad can straight thru which I had to baffle as it was attracting interest from the local constabulary !It only started doing this a few months ago?I'm pretty sure its from the back end?maybe I've overtightened the rear axle after chain adjstmnt?Its one of those quandries that's got me beat!Its like a binding noise and you're right it appears just around 2.5 to 3 k?As we say here in scouse land "It's doin me head in!!Cheers mate..
