1250 Bandits on this Site

These front brakes, while serviceable, have never been very good. I have always wondered if the master cylinder is just weak and isn't providing much pressure. I have changed rotors, pads, fluid, and though it helped didn't give me the kind of bite and feel I would like. If I commit to keeping the bike another few years I might go after the master.

I might get some input from Dale Walker @ Holeshot and see what he says. He does offer some interesting if not expensive braking goodies that I could look into as well.

Owner for a month of a left over 2016 Bandit 1250 in Red. Great bike for a standard. Only mods are 308 Givi tank bag and 19/42 sprockets to put speedo spot on by GPS. As to the "weak" brakes, I've owned 2 wee stroms (still have the 2012) with approx. the same front brake feel and has never been a problem for me. Suppose I've gotten used to them.

For me, it's simply because the brakes are pretty worn out I think. This bike is 7 years old now so she's going to need a little help. I refuse to get rid of her though! She's just too good a bike to let go of.

The thing that brought the brake situation to the fore front is the fact that I got a 2017 Triumph Trophy SE and my gosh those brakes are amazing! Truly one finger braking can be used on this new bike, so it really made me realize how bad off the FA's brakes are.

J.R. I don't know what number I am. I guess since the last number I saw was 306 I'll say 307 and I ride a red 07. As for the front brakes everybody is talking about. I put new pads on the front and they'll put you over the handlebars. I'm sure if I were a trick rider it would do stoppies. What more could you want? Mine doesn't have ABS. I wonder if having ABS could be causing people to not feel like they don't have enough front brake? Just a thought.

Hello Achesley good to see your still kicking. I too haven't been on the thread for awhile I'm getting close to the 100k and haven't had any problems with my 07 Red Bandit. I don't commute with it anymore because I finally got the RE attached to Tired and seem to be catching up with projects that don't require travel. I did just do a 300 miler recently and must say probably the best purchase of a vehicle I've ever made, it's still a blast. They opened up PCH 1 recently so a trip to Phils in Moss Landing from Pismo Beach for some cioppino is in order. Enjoy the road.

In 2009, I was #105, later sold it, but after 10 years, I bought it back this summer, the same '07 Red. So maybe I'm #105x2............? Sold with 8k+ miles, 10 years later, bought it back with only 9600 miles.

You bought back the specific motorcycle that you sold? That's pretty cool.

Kinda of late to the party but I bought a 2007 with 37k on the clock for $1300.00. Brought it home and removed the tank and installed new pump and filter, new chain and sprockets, changed oil, and installed a new rear tire. I could not believe the torque these things put out. Most fun I. Have ever had on a bike.

There were some dents in the tank so while it was off I had them removed and all fairings painted for a cost of $300.00. I ended up for a great bike for about 1800.00. Couldn’t be more happy for a 70 year old.

I bought a 2016 with just 3k miles on her. Found Dale Walker‘s Holeshot website and been modifying the bike. Bike now is much more exciting and enjoyable to ride. Can’t believe the difference. Anyway, here is a picture of her.

Wow, 3k miles. What a catch! Bought mine with 5.5k miles on it and thought that was a steal!

I found mine with 4500 miles, I am close to 10000 now...I use it for weekend rides mostly. I did the Stage 1 with a Delkevic Slip-On. It made a noticeable improvement on the ride. My last 4 bikes were FZ1 first generation...before that a Busa and before that several Hondas. Finally I got tired of messing with carbs! And I like the ABS....now, after I got use to it.
I like this baby, great torque.....but I still miss the high revvs rush of the FZ at times.
