    2001 suzuki sv650n, 2002 suzuki sv650s, 1994 honda rvf400, 1992 suzuki gsf250np bandit
    pulled off the bandit tank, and added more parts to the replacement list:


    seat housing plate, bolt has been cross threaded and mangled a welded on nut. second hand ad on the bay for $50.

    battery doesn't hold a charge, used two chargers to double check. new lithium roughly $150 the bay again.

    air breather from motor to air box is dead. part no# from the japanese parts list is non existent, found a superseded part number on csml site, roughly €9 plus postage. exactly the same part for the 400 model.

    air filter taken out, k&n filter for gs500 and bandit400 are exactly the same. some ads say that a standard air filter fits 250 and 400 bandits. k&n didn't have the 250 bandit imported, so if i can get the dimensions of the k&n to compare.....

    bought a set of exhaust header gaskets with allen head bolts, only to find i had already bought an oem set before...

    bought a Japanese service manual for the 92, yes I wont be able to read it, yes if emailed, pm'ed (or prodded) can be scanned and uploaded for all.

    the debating parts:

    got rgv front brakes and gsxr1100(750) forks

    got bandit v swing arm

    got gsxr 1100(750) rear shock

    want zxr2r swing arm

    want suzi goose wheels (straight swap for gsf/gsxf apparently)

    still confused:

    codes from japanese parts cattledog says frame should be a zp, stickers and import plate says np.

    direction really needed to confirm what year or sub-model is the motor

    I sold it! I sold my VTR250 just now. Next is to see if the CBR is still available... Because the 14 bikes I still have are not enough!

    Fixed up a few things on the bike, fit the throttle grip properly, oil/filter change, clean, lube and adjust the chain, tyre pressures, and fit the ventura rack I ordered.

    I bought clip-in shoes for my bike! Wait, are mountain bikes allowed on this thread? What if it is one of those electric, pedal-assisted bikes?... What if I adapt a petrol chainsaw to power it?

    Hmmm it appears that in a moment of weakness (or is it strength) I might have purchased another bike....
    Soon to take up residence at my place will be a 1975 CB400F... it is a runner... it is a bit rough but it will serve as a nice project for me... once I sell off the 2 VTR's and the Across, as well as start on the SRX... I think I may have caught something from this site... :)

    Picked up a good oem muffler for my IT200L today, the guy even gave me a new pack of packing with it.
    This muffler came off his IT200 that he bought secondhand 30 years ago, he replaced it with a Dep muffler not long after he bought the bike.

    I also ordered a genuine nos front fender for my IT ex usa which should arrive in a week or so.

    That should clean up nicely Andy, and there are so many parts available for them too. :thumb_ups:
    Even comes with some quality (and rebuildable) S&W shocks.

    Thanks Murdo... yes, I am amazed at the parts available for them... As much as there are some really well done "Cafe" builds on these I think it would be a shame to spoil the classic lines and look of this model.. so maybe some hidden mods.. 466 big bore kit and electronic ignition are definitely on the cards as is a Dunstall style muffler (sound clip attached) as none of these change the look of the bike, but other than that it should be a Restore project... worth more in the long run I think as the CB400F are not plentiful on the ground..
