About 2 weeks after getting my '88 750 together, it's coming back apart ... but don't worry, it's a good thing! I ran into a friend who ran into money problems (and speeding ticket problems), and sold me his 600-mile-old custom Bandit 1200 motor.


It uses Bandit cases, a 91 Katana 1127 crank and rods, Bandit pistons and cylinders, and an '88 750 "slingshot" head. I took his old bike for a ride yesterday, and bought the motor today. For a mere $1500, got the motor (fresh from top to bottom), carbs, a battery and an exhaust system (Dale Walker Holeshot!). Criminal, ain't it?


I can't friggin wait. Anybody want a low-mileage '89 Katana 750, with GSXR cams?

Helluva deal ya got there


You'll have a ball with this combination... the B12 is only about 9.5:1 CR stock, but installing the small-chamber 750 head pushes the CR up a point and a half... I ran my B12 as a stock-bore 11:1 for a while and had a lot of fun with it.

Did you get Dale's complete exhaust system as part of the deal, or just the slip-on? ...either way you'll be a happy guy; I have a lot of Dale's shit on my bike and am very satisfied with all of it.

What are you gonna run for camshafts?
