frack!

i actually have to say the stock bandit is more of a beast than i thought i would be. i got to test ride two of them last week.

monsterous! hella power and tourque, 95 in the top of second! good fun!

add on a turbo, holy crapola.

though i got to wonder how bad a turbo suffers from sitting up like that.

SNIP
You should try a ZRX 1200 sometime

I ride with a guy who has a 1200 Bandit and they are nice all around bikes. They're no 'busa or ZX14, but a well ridden one will surprise a lot of folks out there, no doubt.

thats a steal for $4k

BUT the motor could be melted down inside and it could cost you a couple Gs to get it rebuilt.

It would be an awesome project bike.... Those old draw through kits will make about 230hp on pump gas on a bandit... race gas, turn up the boost and it would probably make 280-290hp....(at least for a while)
