I had one for about a month. I had heard good things, and they are a gorgeous bike.
I found it very difficult to modulate the throttle, though. About mid-turn, the thing would shoot off like a rocket when it hit the power range. Maybe I wasn't keeping the revs up high enough, but it got on my nerves. That little bike was a stick of dynomite! Hella fast.

Why do you want to get the back up higher?

I like the Bandit 400. It is a popular bike amongst the inseam challenged. It is nice, sporty and they can touch the ground comfortably without having to lower it. If you plan to sell, I'll have to think for a quick second, but I thought I knew two people in the Little Rock area looking a while back...never mind if you are in Singapore...saw that a second too late!

here's the latest upgrades...till today,i am still hunting for the gsxr front end in local garage sales..

added Tag T2 handlebar and clamps.



now with this bar setup,i felt the riding posture just right for me.

here's my ASV lever upgrade..removed the clutch sensor switch.removed the ERP bracket and relocate the ERP unit.





and took her on a little spin on the highway.




a 12yr old bike with milege that could reach the moon,able to hit 160km/hr.maybe i should change the rear sprocket from 47 to 43.and add one tooth to the front.




really had lots of fun on the bandit that day.

Nicely done... $600 is quite a find. Nice to see pictures of Singapore too. Much better weather than here!

What bike are the screen and bellypan off of?

Hey dude..the only pictures of Singapore you see above are mostly under the void deck or carpark...so nothing so great about it.
The highways,the bikeshop doing the maintaince,modification,and the petrol station are across the borders...its Malaysia.
The weather here at this very month is somewhat temperamental.its normally so hot about 32-35 deg,and sometimes,it just rain like crazy and temperature about 28 deg.this month however alot of unexpected rain.so doin the trails on my XR would only mean mudsplashing...

since you like to see some nice shots of Singapore,will do tomoro..

Ooops...sorry..the question.

well...the headlight comes from this bike.Honda Sonic125cc..its made in Thailand.SGD$30.


i did use the same headlens on my XR too.but with a little fibreglass work.


and the bellypan...its from this bike.

Its suzuki FXR150.only available in Malaysia.not in Singapore.
I got this idea 6yrs back when i spotted one malaysian biker and stopped him to ask him where can i buy them...well...i did it on my 1st bandit back then and it looks good to me.most important,its way cheap.50RM.its about SGD$23.
sounds good rite.

Sweet I had it's big brother the 1200 Bandit. One of the guys I ride with has a 400cc Bandit. He can ride the piss out of that thing. Pretty quick bike. This guys looks funny on it also.

Like a monkey F'in a football. He's like 6 foot 7 in tall.

Here's the bike



Here's the guy that owns it. One of the best guys you'll ever meet. He had a bad motorcycle accident a few years ago. He's pretty good now.
