They did. Then they discontinued them in early '03 IIRC.

I guess I'll have to go hunting for one unless they won't fit on the '05

BP, this is what i thought. when i bolted the 750 header onto my 600 i installed dynojet 120's - which his recommended for an AFTERMARKET header. when i had my bike dyno'd it was running too rich. i talked to the owner - engine builder ( EDR performance ) he told me that it is still a stock header and the collection tubes are not OPTIMAL like a true aftermarket header would be. he also stated that a bigger header doesn't always mean you need more fuel - it can just make the present tuning setup more efficient.

i'm currently running 118's and think it's a bit rich still.


if you have a jetkit w/ an aftermarket filter - you probably wouldn't need and jetting changes if you put the 750 header on.

Man I was looking for this thread like two weeks ago and couldn't seem to find it in a search. Good Info. However if the Bandit 600 Header fits the 600 and the 1200 Fits the 750 98+ then will the 1200 header also fit the 600?

Why didn't yuou try to find a used 98+ oil pan ? Also , the pre98 600 oil pan looks a little different (or maybe that was just the REALLY early oil pans :-k ) . I swapped one out recently that looked WAY different then my 750 pan . It was DEFINATELY shorter , and there was a shorter oil pick-up as well .

Do you know the diameter of the Bandit 600 Headers? Are they larger or similar to the Kat 600. I know they are usually better looking being that they are made to be exposed where as the Kat Headers aren't. But diameters of all these headers would be nice. Also has anyone tried any of the Older GSXR headers for flow or fitment? I found a set a guy has off a late 80's GSXR 750 i could pick up for cheap. Its an aftermarket Hindle header and midpipe and everything. Also when using the Bandit header do you still use the Kat midpipe?

I have a full Bandit 12 exhaust with a Two Bros M2 bolt on system on my bike. I don't know about the B6 but my system was off just enough that my Two Bros slip on for the Kat wouldn't work. I'll let people know more later.

Cools info..
Please update with what mods you had to do.
Do you think the problem was specific to the 2 bros? or any slip-on?
