Congratulations on the new acquisition, Yogi. The Bandit is indeed a very very practical and mature bike. I rode it once and simply loved the progressive power delivery. Does this come with an aftermarket can?

Congrats Yogi on the new ride, you bagged the bandit ! It's one of the most underrated bikes , only because it's not tuned for high power and lacks the latest gizmos and suspension, full fairing. I don't know if I could live with the 250kg weight though.

Appears you live in an apartment block like most of us, do you leave the bikes uncovered ? I wouldn't dare leave my big bike(s) uncovered in a common parking. So do you mod the Bandit as many do in the US, or better off close to stock for a reliable touring machine ?

Thanks bro. yes the bandit is very practical and can be sued for daily riding. Loved the initial power delivery and believe me the bandit too does the numbers which the 954 can do. Its fitted with a race fit kind off exhaust, just like the MGP of your 954 and yes its loud.

Yes bandit is the most underrated but somehow I was behind the bandit since last 2 years, just roll back a couple of pages and you would find my post searching for the bandit. Its a nice machine and would keep it stock.
Yes I do stay in a small building with multiple apartments and we have a open but covered stilt parking for 2 wheelers, no fixed dedicated slots but all bikes under the stilt. From this parking area 3 slots are for me and no one dares to put their bikes in that area and its like "Iska gaadi ko haath nai lagane ka" type.

I prefer to keep my bikes uncovered to avoid the risk of rats getting in and enjoying a feast with the wiring noodles. Moreover its an eye candy for the bypassers from the front of the building who keep peeping inside to see what new has come in.

Came back to work today and bikes are in Hibernation mode for 5 weeks.

We did ride in August during the rains, but did short breakfast meets only. Here are few pics of the meets.
Many changes happened in the last month. Repsol and Busa were replaced with R1 and Bandit respectively and the Blue 600RR found a new home.

Was facing some low voltage issue with the 954, the battery is almost 2 years that I am using and this is what came in the bike , dont know how old it is. the OEM rectifier failed in 2-3 months of having the bike and since then running a chinese rectifier, working fine so far and costs 1/10th of the OEM.
Since the center bulb low beam works as a DRL on the 954 which remains on throughout, with the normal halogen bulbs the Voltmeter was reading 13.6 at Idle, to cover up the low voltage I had plugged out the Low beam connector and was riding. Thought of giving a try with the LED bulbs and see if it makes a difference. Results are visible in the pics, voltmeter now reads 14.2 at idle with the Low beam running, low battery voltage issue sorted for the time being. Once the battery gives up will replace it , till then extracting every drop of it.

How practical is the LED? And how much for? I've also been contemplating a lower wattage bulb for the low beam; or, if feasible, have a switch.

Well the LED's are a bit less brighter than the Halogens, ofcoz these are cheap 10 USD/Pair Chinese ones, but does the job well. Illumination is not bad but not like the Halogens. For temporary use U can just unplug the center socket and ride.

I guess when Yogi meant new 1000RR, he meant it as a new addition to his superbike family and not brand new.

Congrats on the 1000RR Yogi. Bike looks to be in excellent condition. Could you post some more pics and details please and obviously mods planned

Out of curiosity (please feel free not to answer if it's personal - and Mods can then edit this question out of the post). Why do you change your bikes so often? Is it because you get bored with some and look for something more exciting? Or is it something is exciting and you are looking for something more exciting? Is it because you get a good deal on the exchange?
Just curious because the only people I have seen changing bikes so often and dealers - and I don't think you are one.

Now coming to an interesting question - out of all the bikes that you have owned - right from the CBR600F to the Bandit - which one did you love the most and why?
A short like and dislikes of each of the bike you owned will really be helpful.

Thanks and Congrats again. Time to report this post for a title change

Dear Yogi,

How about a detailed new thread/detailed on buying used superbikes? Also sourcing spares and service where A.S.S. isn't available
Your experience can help a lot of us. I get perplexed by random prices and out of state registrations apart from grey/legal

Well yes the bike is in excellent mechanical condition but with a few cosmetic niggles here and there, manageable and will get it back to mint condition gradually. On the mods planned I am blank yet what to do as it already carries the below addons.

Power Commander 5
Secondary Fuel Module
Dynojet Quick Shifter
Gi Pro gear Indicator
Full System Yoshi Rs5
Vortex sprockets
Racing Chain
K&N Air and Oil Filter
Motion pro quick throttle
Lithium Battery
Adjustable rear sets
Do you have any suggestions over the above.

My answer to this is yes getting bored is on the top of the list. Have been playing a lot with these older machines and somehow get attracted to the newer ones which gives an itch for change.

Dude its the BANDIT, I am short of words to explain more on this. Meet me on a weekend ride and lets exchange our bikes. Then I would like you to elaborate about the Bandit. BTW 2 bandits in our group now, yellow 600rr was replaced with a bandit immediately after he test rode mine.

Let me draft a word file over the weekend and post a new reply.

I will try my best for a detailed thread on buying used SBK's but I guess there is one existing thread on the same to which I can add some bullet points.
On sourcing parts I would strongly suggest either you have a person carrying stuff from the USA / UK or you go for an INDIAN Billing where A.S.S facility is available. Had to source few parts for the bandit recently and believe me getting parts from Indian Suzuki officially was cheaper than buying from Japan or USA. Spares are cheapest in the US Market but when it came to buying parts here I would say they were 10% cheaper then Partzilla prices.
On the prices yes agreed market is spoiled but its better to get engaged with the direct owner than any dealer in middle and a out state registered legal SBK is safer than buying a grey market SBK.
