well I hopped on a train to a magical land and managed to buy myself an almost mint Bandit 600 with under 3K on the clocks smile

I will be ordering a 40 or 45 mm jack up kit to get the rear end up today smile

"Jack up kit" raises the rear end of the bike higher and gives it a much better look, it also makes the bike turn in quicker.

well my 40mm kit arrived so I set about fitting it today smile

Bike on center stand and on top of 2 40mm slabs (the rear wheel will drop down once the old links are taken out) Rear break/footrest undone and held out the way and the same for the gear pedal/footrest on the other side.



Rear wheel supported by bricks to take the weight off the links as they are undone.



Rug to keep me off the cold floor lol and gear pedal/footrest removed



old kit out and 2 new gold 40mm links


left and right side fitted (not tightened)



mmm grease


All Done


Took just over half an hour to complete



I haven't been out on it yet to try out the handling but it feel's a lot higher to sit on so good times smile

Next up... indicators or something else smile

Mini update:

Put a new bridgestone on the rear as the old tyre was 160 wide when it should of been 150. Chucked it through an MOT and it came out shining. Adding another 12month tax tonight.

Had a problem with fueling and then found it to be a blocked breather in the filler cap. Ordered a set of Morgan carbtune pro || gauges to balance my carbs and that arrived the other day. I tested it last night as I had a suspicion that cylinder 2 way working harder than the others (that header was warner before the others during start up)

When I plugged my gauges in it was pretty much confirmed.






As you can see 2 tends to be higher than the other 3 cylinders. I will be balancing the carbs on my next day off. But to be fair I thought it was gonna be worse than that smile little Suzy is a good bike smile
