Bike looks great!
Did you make a mold for that airbox cover, or is it a one-off?

Thanks for wearing pants this time.

Just weighed the bike. Front is 175, rear is 189 so 364 total

Bike has the fuel tank absolutely pressed, full of coolant oil etc.

I have a few ideas to drop a few more lbs but in reality will add it back with a damper and hand guards. Pretty happy with those numbers and pretty close to what I thought backing out the weight of the fuel id be right at 350

There are some steel brackets for the original linkage that I haven't removed yet should get another couple lbs

Very good numbers on the weight.

Hoping for 390 pounds on the Bandit, but the motor is a pretty big lump compared to your CBR.

Threw on the sumo wheels, after an unreal time getting the slicks off and the new battalax s20 mounted. I have almost zero swingarm clearance might need to shave the tire slightly.

I have a 150 street tire I want to run on the Bandit.

congrats on getting it moving, hope the nervous front end feeling is just down to the knobblie tyre on the the street.

i was just showing my dad your vid earlier on today, and i had to go back through the thread to find the shot of it with the sumo setup, (gonna do the same to my cbr after another project) and there you go posting a new shot just after i get home!

btw i think the oil cooled bandit engines are about 80kilos, cbr 65kg.

160 60 17

I think if I shave the sharp corner I'll be fine but next tire I'll go to 150. The rim is 5" wide though, and it's a factory ktm wheel. Maybe 150 is the way to go.

The front end was due to lack of bearing preload. All better now

It's about as light as I would want, the compactness is awesome

Beware that some tires are wider than others, but in general a 150 is too narrow for a 5" rim to handle well. The SM guys are modding the same swingarm that you have to fit with a 5.4" (Marchesini) or 5.5" rim and 165-175 slicks. There is a guy on SMJ who does it for a fee, rpugh (?).

Since you like to cut and weld you could try it yourself.....

I have an 150 Anakee tyre fitted on a 5.0/17 rim. Apart from the fact that you need tie downs to seal the tyre and inflate it (my rim is tubeless) the bike handles very very well. But I suspect the overall width is dictated by rim width as well as tyre, so a 150 might be equally wide on your rim.

Lukas,

Cool idea but I'm not sure I want to modify the swingarm, maybe I might try another tire as they do vary between manufacturers. Most of the time I expect the bike will be dressed for dirt and those tires fit. If I shave the sharp corner I cab probably get another 1/4"

Mousitas, maybe thats the tire to run next time they do have a lot of grip. Are you using the same swingarm? How did you seal your rims? I like the idea on these tires to do that

Depending on how much you feel like investing, you could probably lace up a narrower hoop that would fit the 150.

Hi Sailah,
doesn't the tyre shave itself on the run?
Sorry, not quite serious!
Kind regards, Bambi ... waiting to relive the old camp-fires in Germany, you remember?
