The header pipe connection is where all of the vents and drains end. Take a look around and you will see the hoses for these.

Well my old b6 has gone to a good home. I have a few odds and ends left in the garage: Pelican topcase, 74k running motor complete with carbs starter & alt, Katana wiring harness with fuse box and ignitor, rear wheel and factory windscreen. PM me if interested.

I'm pretty sure only the full fairing version of the 650 was sold in the USA.

What are the differences, if any, between the 2009 Bandit touring version and the 2011, besides dropping the name Bandit?

Suzuki Canada has new 2009 Bandits and tempting prices...

difference GSF1250SA and GSX1250FA

The only difference technically I know of is that the GSX1250FA has an extra radiator fan, witch will turn on if the engine temperature is still rising when the first fan is already running. The full faring makes is more difficult for the engine to lose its heat. That is why Suzuki uses the extra fan

Hope this is helpful

cheers
Erik

Visually, both are the same?

Was there also a change in the instrument cluster to include a gear indicator?

The faring is different. The GSF1250SA touring is basically a normal bandit with an extra fairing pieces fitted.
The GSX1250F has a one piece fairing witch is different, different headlight, different cockpit. And I do believe with a gear indicator. Besides from the extra fan it is also a 1250 bandit underneath.

I have a 2010 GSF1250SA bandit, with only the top fairing.
It's a very nice bike to have.

Nice bike! So with the 1250SA, you can simply remove the lower fairing panels and you have one like yours, and one would assume heat from the engine on the rider is not an issue. Thanks for the info and photo.

Yes, you can remove them. Just a couple of simple brackets as I recall.

I don't notice any heat from the bike while riding.
I really like the torque the engine makes, pulls hard in every gear, with low Rpm's.
Only mod's I've made are a Sebring Twister exhaust, because I find the original just to big.
And a Puig radiator cover to protect that big radiator. (not shown on the picture by the way)
Oh Yes that seat came with the bike when I bought it. I think its from top sellery.....can't check right now, bike is sleeping at the Suzuki Dealer

Now i'm riding my old Suzuki GS500E through the winter. Its half the bike the Bandit is :-)

cheers!
Erik.

The handlebars are (or so I'm told) different.

Wow, that color looks very nice on a Bandit. Congrats on having one of the best looking Bandits.
