king Giday fellow Bandit riders
I just purchased a 2005 GSF1200 K4 very tidy low miles runs great. However the previous owner did some mods aftermarket can and K&N filter. My mate who is an experianced rider and has owned many Suzuki models including Bandits Busas ect said it is running slighty rich and is lacking a bit of power because of that. I was told that the 1200s can take an after market can or a K&N filter without the need to rejett, but with having both mods I was told its would need to be re jetted. What should I do? go back to the original filter or what?

Thanks heaps Hurricane from NZ

New Bandit rider from NZ wanting advice. Empty standard filter

Hi, with most bikes you have to change the jetting with a k+n filter, but it isn't worth messing about with...standard filter and a pipe is straightforward and doesn't need re-jetting...running slightly rich is better than running lean, and wont do your engine any harm...if you want to make the bike a bit more lively change the front sprocket for one tooth smaller...the bike will more than likely reach its top speed in top gear, whereas with standard sprockets they don't!
