I saw someone put gsxr k6-k8 or hayabusa shock on ,but I have abs and I don't want broke it or cut anything.
what oem shocks fit what?
I believe bandit stock shock 320mm length not sure spring rate ,here's what I find in google
Font Material property Screenshot Pattern Parallel

busa have 330mm 12.5kg/mm spring.
k5-k6 have 332.5mm 8.1spring rate
k7-k7 have 315 mm 10.1 kg/mm spring rate
b-king have perfect 320mm length not sure spring the only problem is they have piggyback reservoirs ,bandit don't have space for reservoir
then I find someone put busa shock on mt09,on ohlins website bandit and mt 09 spring use same part number 01092
and here's mt 09 shock size ,spring rate should be 550ln/in about 10kg/mm
Automotive lighting Automotive tire Motor vehicle Asphalt Line

I do the research but I don't have time try it ,any comment will be very helpful thanks

I feel my rear keep jumping and turn slow , new one ask 400 I want find something cheaper
If your "rear is jumping" (assuming I understand you) your rear shock is bottoming out and either does not have enough pre-load (more likely) for your 240lbs or, if you have adjusted
the shock's preload to maximum (as a test) and it still misbehaves ("bottoms out") it may have become faulty(truly, not very likely, but possible). If it were MY Bandit 1250 (and I DO have one) and I needed the rear shock replaced, I'd search Ebay for a few weeks for a low-mileage USED rear shock that came off the same Bandit 1250ABS model as yours and not go trying to put a different bike's
rear shock on your Bandit. I'm speaking from experience here as I did that very thing with my Yamaha FZ-1 and, although I finally got it right, it was the project from HELL and I wish I had
never bothered and would never, ever do it again.

I edited your post so that it looks right.
The comment that you ADD needs to go AFTER the /QUOTE in brackets.

It was a common swap for the Bandit 1200 rear shock to be changed out for a Busa one It gives better handling and is also adjustable for rebound and compression. I am not too sure what the ABS has to do with the swap since the abs is fitted to the wheel and the shock is a single one fitted under the swing arm via links....or dog bones as some call them.
