I love mine. I do get some low rpm vibes from it around 3-4k.

Changed out my rear tire this morning with a Continental Motion M 180/55 ZR17 M/C (73W). Never tried this tire before so will be different. Cost was 99.99 bucks to my door.
At 86666 miles on the ometer but really need to add 7% to that total for actual miles due to speedohealer.
Pirelli Angel GT on got me 9196 before showing cord.
If I was still able to do long distance travel , it would be Dunlop PR3's for sure as I got great traveling miles with the PR2 back in the day.
Probably next will be Chain and sprockets along with rear brake pads. But, in the future.

Doing end of the year mileage figures .Wow ! The Corvette, even though only had it 9 month, has really cut into Motorcycle/Truck mileage this year. Corvette > 7625 miles Truck > 3369 miles ; Suzy > 3322 miles and bringing up the rear is the KLR > 1598 Miles. Next years resolution is more motorcycle miles. Gotta ride while I still can even if it's just in a 150 mile radius.

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

Anyone have a source for what I call frame plugs on either side of the gas tank that are triangles? I went naked and this is the last two pieces I need to finish but canít find them anywhere.
Again they are to cover the triangle frame area on either side right below he gas tank. Any help would be much appreciated. Or if another model would fit the bandit like the 600 or 1200
Thanks,
Randy

Fuel Tank Cushion ( triangle) part number is 44511-27E00

The rectangles are either 44541-31F00 or 445149-45330

A quick google search should reveal a source in your area or availability.

Thanks Shmerick, But I’m not looking for under tank pads I am looking for the small triangle fairings to plug the holes on the frame below the gas tank when you take off he front cowling/fairing to make a naked Bandit.

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

Hello,

New 2007 Bandit 1250S owner. Looking for help diagnosing a tapping sound that has something to do with the rotation. Not sure where to post this question as Im new to the forum as well.

Driving me crazy and I cant tell where its coming from. When I through it in neutral rolling to a stop is the best time to hear it as the engine is quieter. I can feel it ever so slightly as well. Almost like when you have a rock stuck in the tire kinda thing where you hear it speed up and slow down with the tire rotations. Any common issues out there that I should check out? Rotors, chain, ect? Thanks in advance.

Welcome to the forum!
Do you hear the tapping with the engine running or with it off? Only at low speed or all the time?

Is the chain properly cleaned, lubricated, and adjusted? Iíd start there, unless I misunderstood your problem.
