Hi. This is my first post. I have a bandit 600, great bike. I have been riding it for 3 years now. I like the look and feel of it, but would like to know about modifying for increased performance. I suppose I was wondering about a different exhaust etc. Would appreciate some guidance.

Welcome syncrat,any mods, more so increasing performance will have to be declared to your ins com to keep covered,also could you sell it on if you mod it?
Why not buy a 1200 standard bandit?
The size/weight are similar to the 600 BUT 100BHP.
There's many options. You can put 750cc barrels on, you can get them bored out to 884cc or even just slot in a 750 or GSXR1100 or 1200 engine.
A different exhaust won't do much but will improve the sound.
The best thing you can do to make it quicker is to THRASH it. Don't change up until you get to the red line. Ride it like you stole it. Ride it hard.
I had one from new, and did 26k on it, all ridden hard including track days and drag racing. It never missed a beat. As long as the engine is in good condition and you have the right oil in it (and enough of it) you won't harm it. The 600 is a downsleeved 750 engine and they were bullet proof.
