Suzuki 1250 Bandit with sidecar

How many people have put a sidecar on the Suzuki, does it have its own thread?

Hi there. I have a 2007 1250 Bandit with a Hannigan Supersport sidecar. I've owned 7 sidecars. I think the Bandit makes a great sidecar tug. Great power and smooth, and decent fuel milage. I regularly get over 33 mpg. Blaine

It doesn't have its own thread that I know of, and I visit here frequently, but both the 1200 and the 1250 are a popular choice for a fast road rig, or even a HP rig. David Hough even highlights the Bandit in the Yellow Book (at least in my 2008 Edition anyway.)

Hello, I have a 08 Bandit 1250/Vetter Terraplane rig. Bike has a full frame and plenty of power which both are good for a rig (simple subframe and can get out of its own way). No tread on the Bandit that I know of here. Bill

That's cool! I loved the Terraplane! Do you have any pictures of the mounting? As I recall, the Vetter only had one upper mount. True?

Holy crap... I just remembered an old picture I had from the early 80's. About 1981 I'd say, of my Marine Corps barracks room at MCAS Yuma. I scanned it in from an old print I've had all these years.

Check out the poster I had on my wall, 31 years ago!! That was my friend Benje in the picture...

ag_steak you are correct, the Terraplane only had 3 mounts, the top one was adjustable for lean out on the go.Mine didn't have one when found so it has a 4 mount with parts easy to come by. The body needed to come off anyway for a makeover due to many years of outdoor life before being put back on the road.

^ ^ ^ Wow! very cool. Is that a custom lower mount on the sidecar frame? It looks like it has five bolts clamping it to the lower longitudinal sidecar tube... Also, did you fabricate the Bandit subframe too?

ag_steak, Yes you are correct,the lower mount is a pinchblock to adjust wheel lead and treaded rod for toe in. I did have a hand in the bike subframe also. I cannot take all the credit though. All work was done at Claude's and the CSM shop which is were I spend most of my free time as my normal job will allow. Without the CSM crews help on my first and now my second rig,I would have never pulled the trigger. It's a wonderful thing to live 25 miles away from a sidecar shop.
