Bandit 1200 with k8 gsxr1000 shock

Discussion in 'Modifications and Projects' started by Jez79, Mar 19, 2012.

  1. hi all, after reading about this mod, i did it to my bike but i've hit an issue where the front of the spring touches the front of the swingarm. i believe i can fix this but i was under the impression it should have bolted straight in. this leads me to believe my dog bones arent standard. they are 175mm ctoc of the holes. does anyone the standard length for dogbones for mk1 bandit 1200? or has anyone done this mod with success?

    thanks in advance :)

  2. That response you are after is a very bike specific, I hope you snag an answer, have you asked on a bandit specific forum?

    I have a cbr900rr shock in my CBR1100 but I resprung and reshimmed for the increase in mass, did you do this?
