MUCH cheaper than anything you could do to the Bandito, and all will help in the 1/4.
Not sure of the helmet thing although Iam sure it would help. If you came that close to beating a 1000 with alot less weight you should be proud. The 1250 is pretty heavy in stock trim(?) compaired to a liter bike. My cheapest advise would be to forgo the Busa and lose alot of weight. Good job though!

With the 1200's the GSXR cams are a drop in, plus a Holeshot can, Ignition Advancer, drilling the airbox and a rejet and a set of Wisco pistons would be good for around 140 hp, after that it's gearing tire choice and skill.

The 1250's a different animal, what I would do is leave the 1250 stock for a street bike, buy a second gen 1200 and build a drag bike out of it. The mods I mention will run less the $1500, plus another $3000 max for a bike, you'll loose that much just trying to trade up. Check out Dale Walkers Holeshot Performance for some Bandit love
