One of the lads did the Iron Butt of Ireland on his restricted Bandit S and didn't have any trouble so you should be grand.

As for the weekly rideout, I need to get my bike fixed first. Hopefully in the next few weeks I'll be back on her again.

Why would it be stressful on the engine?

Wouldn't have any stress effect on the bandit engine, they are bullets, plus i did Dublin to cork and back again on my restricted bandit no bother

If the engine is designed to deliver say 100hp, but is restricted to 33hp, you won't be able to stress the engine anywhere near what it is designed to be able to take.

I would think that out of respect, nobody is going to go haring off and leaving others behind. I reckon you'll be ok. I am of course open to correction.
