Re: The 2007 Suzuki Bandit 1250S -The Mega Thread

I'm trying to fit my k&n but the fit seems terrible, do you just have to smash it in there?

hello, On my 2007 bandit I had to cut down the rubber thingie sticking up near the bottom of the filter. K&N leads you to believe you just drop it in to replace oem filter. not so I'm afraid, but not difficult to cut either. It will fit. Good luck, Gary.

You do not have to cut anything. There are 2 o-rings (huge ones around the perimeter of original air filter) that you have to remove to fit K&N. One is on the housing body and other in the cover. Remove them intact and you can return to the original filter when you want (as I did).

Thank you, I removed one of them and it seems to fit fine, I'll go looking for the second. I take it there's one on the piece that's removed and one on the airbox itself?

Re: The 2007 Suzuki Bandit 1250S -The Mega Thread

Has anyone added forward engine foot pegs on their Bandit? I have and engine cage and I am thinking it would be nice on long trips to be able to stretch out a little and would like to get some ideas on locations and or interference issues.
Edit: i just realized this question was brought up 2 pages ago.

I was thinking of installing hwy pegs on the engine guards..but I'm not riding this as a hwy LD rider so in reality I dont need them. And riding this bike in the twisties with a new set of Michelin PR2s ..i dont even think about the footpegs..

Re: The 2007 Suzuki Bandit 1250S -The Mega Thread

does anyone have any suggestions for good looking/operational wind deflecting hand guards for the bandits? Figured these might work better than bulky gloves

This has been covered many times. V-strom 1000 guards work nicely. You may have to cut a few zip ties to get your cables routed around them.
