Recommended Posts

as many of you will no i spent a lot of time on the bandit forum were it seems every member including my self modified there bike to some extent, i'm wondering who does modify there bikes and who leaves them as the factory intended. if you do mod it what do you and why and to what bike?

so some mild performance improvements a few aesthetic bits and bobs and one or two comfort mods. sounds like a good way of getting what you want while still keeping the bike close to its roots.


Daytona has a quill can and headers with the can stubbied (mostly for noise but frees up a few ponies aswell)
triumph remap for the new system
crash mushrooms
renteck grab rail for the pillions
bar risers
oxford heated grips
cnc leavers

thats it so far as i would like to keep it close to stock as its the 100th anniversary ce model.

would like to replace the rear shock and change the springs in the front or convert to usd while keeping the originals for resale, would also quite like braided front lines and some adjustable rearsets.

im trying to keep my ace standard as i think it looks good like that i have done a few things such as changing the fairing fasteners and disc bolts to a2 stainless the old ones were a bit tatty and nos peg rubbers etc and ive fitted a renntec rack.
i did modify my bandit a lot as it was in a right state when i got it thumbs

i know what you mean about the bandit, mine was shot when i got it, needed the front and back suspension completely renewing and the zorst was buggered and the dam thing was flecked with so much sodding rust. still a good excuse to polish the crap out of it.

For pure grin factor, it had the be the big SV. The torque and sound was brilliant. It was also very comfy even though you wouldn't imagine it to be. I used to get numb wrists on the B6. That said, I'm wanting a b12 soon. I loved how I got the b6 looking and they are much easier to mod. I want to do a full project b12. If it doesn't give me as much fun as the sv did then I'll either sell the b12 for another sv or I'll have both Very Happy

lol. Maybe I'll have to do an engine conversion if I got another SV although there's more than enough power for me on a little island like this Smile. Especially with my experience of the crap brakes.

Same for me, just a few bits:

Renthal bars
short levers
carbon fibre front mudguard
Quill can
chrome frame inserts
alloy pegs (front and back)
LED back light/ front indicators
braided hoses
after market bellypan

Mainly to get it looking as I want. When I took if for it's test guy said to me he has no idea what the Bandit actually looks like as he's never seen two the same Shockedthumbsthumbsthumbsthumbs

First mod was to cover all the paint and bodywork with Venture Shield plus front light cover, next replaced the indicator lenses with clear ones next was a Zero G taller screen. Carbon rear huger, one off CNC’ed brace arm.

Then I got down to getting a the horses to pull together I popped down to the local Dyno first run stock was 158BHP I then put in a pair of K&N cone filters in, second run 170BHP and a much smother power curve, next I put an Akrapovic end can on third run 178BHP! Get in!!!! thumbs
I would love to get a Power Commander III but it’s not worth it as I want to get the K13 maybe later this year.
