Curious about this too. I was about to pull the trigger on a full D&D setup for my 750 but now I'm wondering if I should go for a picemeal approach built around 1200 headers.

I'd be grateful to anyone with dyno comparisons for the 750 with stock versus Bandit 1200 headers. My suspicion is that the low torque would benefit from this with (presumably) no compromise in upper-end flow since the 1200 is pushing so much more to begin with, although I'd love to see dyno charts for comparison to make sure there isn't any "tail off".

It would be my guess that you would substantially raise horsepower over the stock Katana exhaust however you will probably lose some torque and I would imagine that if you think about it a stock exhaust vs. aftermarket the flow design itself is going to be totally different as well as the pipes being larger and everything too and tuned specifically towards the bike and engine you are putting it on. So just some things to think about. Later ~Heath

Anyone knows if 89+ (yes 89+) would fit on a 1988 engine ??? My stock exhaust cans are fully black and remarked that 89+ had silvers cans... can I swap it ???

Thanks a lot !

icyhandles,
My bike is a 98 600 with the bandit 1200 exhaust and two brothers end can. It also has a K&N air filter with the big restricter ring. I have a jet kit, 5 degree ignition advancer and shift detent spring kit from Factory Pro. The bike also has cam shafts from an 88 GSXR 750 and the final drive gearset is 14/47.
As far as the mods needed to put the bandit exhaust on the only problem was that the center stand interfered so I removed it(I have bike stands). Oh and of course I ground out the welds inside the head pipes the same way others others have done.

I have a 750 motor that needs rings but I haven't gotten around to working on it as of late. Maybe next winter.

That's about it.
