Bandit 1200 project...

My friend wrecked his Bandit 1200 so I am lending a hand in its resurection. He bent his original forks and triple clamp as well as tweaking the rear subframe. Here are some photos of the progress.

The major items to be done were to convert front to use USD forks from a 95 GSXR 1100 as well as remove (ie- cut off) the steel subframe and replace it w/ a 2002-2003 R1 subframe & tailsection.

before pics:
bandit1
bandit7


progress pics, after w/ USD forks and a 2002-2003 R1 rear end:

bandit 009
bandit 004
bandit 010

Now we've pulled the motor so the frame and swingarm can get powder-coated:

bandit 011

Question...I have a friend with the same B12 and wants to do the GSXR fork swap...did you have to press in different bearing races into the neck of the frame? or do the bearings from the SRAD match the Bandits? Once you get the triple trees mounted correctly, the rest is pretty easy. Do the steering stops & locks still work?

Also, what about the speedo? My B6 was cable driven off of the front wheel - is the 12 the same way?

Oh yeah, one more thing - what is the difference in the length of the forks?

Looks good!
The speedo runs off the c/s.
The fork length is close.
You have to modify the GSXR triple.

I know the difference in the SV forks compared to newer GSXXR forks is like 10 - 15 mm shorter on the GSXR forks. Most people use a 70 series front tire to make up for the difference, so it's not a big deal. I have a friend that wants to do this swap, but needs the information so he can do it properly. Also, he has a 1st gen B12, so could he re-use his speedo gear on the front wheel if he uses the SRAD stuff?

Also, steering stops & locks - do they work still? It's a problem on the 1st gen SV's....just wondering.

Looking good!

Red,
The speedo drive won't work, but he can use a sprocket cover / electronic drive off a late model and adapt it. The stops will be fine.
