Help with new back tyre

Can anyone help, I need a new back tyre for a Bandit 600, it has Avon tyres fitted, the front is like new so I don't want to replace the pair. Front has a 120/60ZR17 AV 27 compound. Rear has 150/60ZR 17 Azaro sport AV 40 compound. This is my first bike and I don't know much about tyres, all I know that the tyres should be compatible in the compound ratio. Can anyone suggest what tyre to have fitted to the back. Cheers

Thinking of buying a Bandit

Hi Folks, I'll hopefully on two wheels sometime in the near future and I'm thinking of buying a Bandit 600S for my first bike. I've heard these are quite user friendly and i think the fairing will gove me some protection seeing as i'll be using it to commute to my work during the warmer months 190 miles each way trip. I'm just looking for some advise as to whether the Bandit 600 would suit me and information about things i'll need to keep an eye out for when it comes to buying a used Bandit 600S, cheers Davie

Protecting GSF650N

I keep dropping my bike for various reasons (weight, soft ground, skidding, lack of coordination) and despite fitting a cage around the lower part of the engine - every time there is a fall, there is a broken brake lever, dent in the tank. Is there a solution - cage that goes higher up like on a police bike. I guess a tank bra would help. The problem seems to be linked to the huge wide tank on the bandit, maybe I can replace with a narrower version? Graham, Paris

carbs icing

I am having a pig of a problem with very cold mornings riding to work, my Suzuki Bandit GSF 600 (1998), after been riding for 5 to 10 minutes the engine will star to feel like you are on 3 cylinders on low speed and low revs, if I increase the speed the engine will pick up, but as I come to crossroads or traffic lights the engine will die on me. To stop this happening I need to stop and pull the kill switch wait for 1 minute and then the bike will go all day without a problem. ...

Tank Range

Hello, What kind of mileage are you guys getting from the Bandit now that it has run in ? My reserve (tank signal ting) is flashing around 150 now. When new it was 170 easy. Is this normal ? I do mainly motorway riding and do go completely banana's on it or anything. Mine is 4 months almost exactly now and done 3900miles so far. Nearly time for second service already ! Cheers

I hate winter!!!! But....

For once last weekend, I had the chance to get out on the 1200s. Went to start - battery flat:( cant find manual to disarm alarm to take battery out:( recharge battery whilst still connected to bike and 2 hours later - Vroom and we are off:) It was great to get out after a 3 week lay off and again the next day. drove for 3 hours each day, nowhere in particular but had a ball. Has anyone else been out? Its too quiet in here - come!

Is it summer yet?

What a bummer, I'm just sitting in the office, sun is shining, sky is blue (in Aberdeen??? hard to believe but true), thinking "wish I was on my bike" when I remembered it's colder than a penguins pecker outside, ARSE!

Now there's a thread topic on its own....

How does the odometer reading effect the value of a bike? discuss. In my experience, the mileage of a bike does not effect the value of any bike a dealer is selling, but significantly devalues any bike he may be buying in part exchange. However, when my 99 Bandit was stolen with 39000 miles on the clock, (yours is still low milage FighterBoy) the insurance company paid out %XA32750 after the %XA3250 excess was deducted. I don't think I'd have received much more if it had only had 15000 miles on the clock.
