I rebuilt my girlfriends GSF1200 Bandit when we went into COVID lockdown - completely stripped it, blasted the frame, all new bearings, and repainted everything in her choice of matt black and metallic purple and one of my friends made a custom seat for it with a nice gel insert. Even had the head off the engine for an inspection and to fix leaky oil drain tube o-rings.

Aside from that I did a bit of modification on it and it's now effectively stage 2.5 with modified airbox, K&N filter and a full Micron race exhaust system, Maxton suspension. That meant it needed a full set up as it was running so lean above 6k rpm that it was unrideable.

Took it to a local, well reknowned company (mainly specialising in MV Augustas these days) and got it professionally set up on the dyno... wow, what a difference!

115.6hp and 75lbft of torque - a 20+hp gain from standard, so really pleased with that on a 21 year old bike.

I will do some videos on it at some point I expect!

I really fancied the 1200 Bandit when they came out, that is ace dyno results!
Thanks! They are great fun! Goo fun old muscle bikes.

Awesome keeping a bike that old out on the road!
Thanks!

It's actually a year newer than my Blackbird (based on build date!)
