My last sport bike was a 1997 Bandit 1200....It was dynoed @ 115 to the rear wheel.

Since i'm lookin at a 1986 1100, will i be dissapointed with the HP #'s....?

Just want something equal or more then the bandit was. Will it be anything close to the Bandit..

Thanks......You guys rock on this site!

I think the only thing you'll find lacking is the torque in comparason to your Bandit. The old gix's with a pipe and proper jetting could make that power, but are still going to be down on torque as they are a bit smaller cc's wise and the cams have a bit more duration which is great for topend, but tends to not only reduce torque but also plays in where the torque peak is in the powerband. In the gix's case it will be higher than the Bandit.

So essentially the gix will feel a bit softer on the bottom end (stock vs stock), that's not to say you can't adjust it with a big bore kit and some different cams.

it may have less bottom end than a B12, but suzuki geared the shit outta them(14/47) stock, so they still pull pretty good down low.

stock they should be between 110-115hp and 65-70lbs/ft of torque.

the curve will not be as flat a the B12, but it also weighs a ton less.

the first gen gixxers were the lightest until the the SRAD/2001 models, throw some 17in wheels on that bike and you have a beast...

You'll be happy with the handling and I suspect the power too.

I put a 907 block on my 750 and got 115.3rwhp/65.2ft#

You'll just have to adapt to where the grunt is in the powerband versus your B12.
