All of those Orgs have yellow and black as novice plates. I have raced with all of them and AHRMA, except CMRA.

    Looks like you picked it up from that CL ad you posted.

    Congrats. Lots of things you can do to the GS.

    More GS750E builds I say.

    It sure beats dealing with bored young idiots or CB350's with the tire rubbing on the frame loop.

    As an aside, it's really annoying dealing with thegsresources and how they're migrating their web site. Using internet archives to look up stuff on the site from 2013 gets old quick. That said, a ton of the stuff there is (obviously) geared towards the GS1000.

    theres a what? Thats a hole which they put a weldnut over to attach the tap. I'd be a tad upset if you developed a groovy new way to jihad a suzi four pot by giving it a leak source of raw petrol above hot things that make for flat black paintjobs with no discernible plastic parts left on the bike.



    number four does all your upper sealing and a pair of number sixes take care of anything that wicks down the threads. I've seen fibre, copper, and alloy all used in the material of said washer and they're under the tap so that number 4 gets a clean flat unobstructed shot at sealing the top half of it.

    Not saying your plan won't work, but if i have the choice of trying to reinvent the wheel, or becoming a fireball, i'm pretty happy with wheels as they are.

    I say leave the seat. The original yosh gs1000 had a seat like that and that is probably why the po had that one done. On the GS the tail is bolted to the frame section so it is difficult to move it around without modding the frame rails. I mean the bike is already cut in another place so if you wanted to I don't see the harm in doing it since it will never be stock anyway, but I also don't really see the benefit as it is a lot of work to do properly.

    Instead i would suggest swapping out the stock brake and tail for something that sits more flush with the cowl. Maybe LED. This will also help sell the faux race bike look as the original ran without lights.

    If you want to run the plates either keep the ones you have or get copies of the originals off the yoshimura/ Wes Cooley bike.

    Yep, I say keep the stock tail and that stepped seat.

    I seem to recall that some of the GS1000S models had a stepped seat like in this pic:

    This one appears to be a redone stock humped one.

    appreciate it, I had interpreted the layout as the 6's went between the tank and the bracket, not the screw and the bracket.
