Questions & Answers With Dale

Dear Bandito,

I put this page together to help guide you in your tuning and suspension decisions and the best place to start when it comes to modifying your Bandit. I've done years of testing and my goal is for you to get the biggest bang for your dollars spent and do it right the first time.

New questions will be added periodically.

Enjoy for now! Dale

First lets talk HORSE POWER my favorite thing...

1. What is the first step to make more power?

The first step is to add the Holeshot vortex slip-on, jet kit and +5 degree timing advancer.

2. Is re-jetting necessary when I add the slip-on?

It is not mandatory and the Vortex will add 12 to 14 hp and 10 ft- lbs. on the 1998-2000B-12 and 5-7 hp on the 2001+ B-12. Just bolting it on. To make it less cold blooded, really smooth itout and to get even more power and torque I highly recommend one of my jetting kits. The B-6 will pickup 5 to 7 hp in the mid range and about 3 on top for a much more enjoyable ride.
