Picked up in a barn in December for $600.00
been stripping her apart and rebuilding on the weekends ever since.
not one to type so just follow the pictures...
List of parts updated
07 hayabusa front end
535 chain conversion
1166 big bore but going to 1327cc soon
Dynojet jet kit
Every part sand blasted and powder coated... yes literally every part!!!
New SS Brake lines
New Dyna2000 Ignition system
i think everything is new at this point lol
Hoping to have it together in the next couple weeks so i can start work on my XS650
I also have an 1980 GS 750 for sale in the classifieds section.
got the Frame back last week and started to put her back together, waiting on some more parts to come in but shes 80% there. Wiring up the new Dynatech ignition doesn't look so bad but figuring out the speedometer with gear indicators looks interesting. Does anyone have a wiring diagram for a 1982 Gs1100E?
So I got her all together but I will be tearing her back down. Picked up my 1327cc big block kit with pistons off ebay and cant wait put it in. In the mean time i wanted to see if other had recommendations on which carb to upgrade to... the stock BS32 weren't even good with the 1166cc kit i could tell due to lack of vacuum with the pods and Vance & Hines exhaust that bike was not running properly. I am thinking about going with the Mikuni RS38 Flat sides over the 36s because of the big block and free flowing exhaust and PODs. Any suggestions??
finally got my head back from Mikes Lazer porting and man what a piece of art. Milled down, opened intake and exhaust ports, larger valves and SS springs and valves.... cant wait to bolt her back together. Plus I have some Mikuni 38s on order...
Is a thing of beauty! now you need to dump those hateful CV carbs before they give you tuners nightmare.
yourt engine what cams arev you using ?lol that porting looks like something onf fuel or boost
definatelydrag-race porti gonna be a pos to ride arouind on public roads
Is there something weird with that photo or did he cut the guides too short before installing them? If so, hopefully they are intake and not exhaust. And my guess would be they are exhaust as the other ones appear to have a vacuum port ....

"Non urinat in ventum"
That's the way the kids are porting them these days. Compromising longevity for a pretty looking head.
Sure it might flow great on the bench, but the loss of valve guide area and the boss plus the big block and those valve probably will be burnt and wobbling in a couple hundred miles.
Actually Lazer porting has been doing this stuff for probably 25+years now. I had a zx-11 head ported back in late 90's. So, who knows....
Sure looks purdy though.
