Bandit 600 to 750 conversion

Hey all, So, I was wondering what your views are on doing the conversion from the original B600 to the slingshot 750 engine, has anybody done this ? I know it has been done by many people but Iv never been told what the bike is like, does anybody have any tips or advice about the conversion?


Im asking as I can get hold of an engine 
Cheers

I done my !980 CB750  190,000 miles up in 2010

swapped the engine for a CB900F1 super sport lump,
had it done by my local shop as he found the engine for me.

It was out with the 750 & in with the 900 all the same fittings.

When I tried to register the change with DVLC they wouldn't accept the change by me :blink:

Had to get the shop to write a letter giving all the details of price, engine No. and an invoice before they would change it WTF!

They wont accept changes to bikes & cars by general public any more

Usual advice

check your insurance; they might not like it, and load your premium accordingly.

Secondly, do you actually WANT a 750, or are you simply interested in doing the work to your bike? If you're after a 750, it'd be simpler (and possibly cheaper) to trade the bike for a 750 than to spend time / money / effort converting a 600.

Unless you want to do it yourself as a bit of a project why not just get a Bandit 12?

Got to be cheaper, easier and quicker, plus you don't need to go through any rigmarole with registering or insuring it.

It should take less than a day to do the conversion. Don't forget the 750's carb's too. You should then have approx 100bhp. There is an 884cc conversion that gives 125bhp at the wheel but it's a lot of work and expense. You could also slot in a 1200 engine, but you'd almost certainly need the 1200's CDI too.

Yeah, you could buy a 1200, but doing the conversion yourself you have a bike that YOU have built.
