    I'd like to know what you paid for the muffler that needs to go on? And, why did you start at the opposite end to the important one?

    GS is a 'nicer' motor than CB550f (even though I've had CB550 since 1977) Suzuki is more overweight and over engineered though, 640 or 720 kit is worth the time and expense. Decent set of pipes and silencer and you can have a 150mph bike quite easily. Head needs some work for decent flow but if you only want to look like a cafe race leave things mostly stock

    webike might have something.
    I've never ordered personally, but some on here have,.

    huh, nothing there except a MAC.
    checked z1 and delkevic, too. Only for the gs850. I wonder if headers are interchangeable?

    I am sure someone in the past, when the bike was new, made a 4-1 header. However, I don't know how rare they are and how likely you are to find them. Again, I would ask the guys at the gs resources forum because suzuki GSes are kind of their thing.

    Check your local scrap yard, people scrap bikes with aftermarket headers on them all the time.

    For the stock headers?
    not likely, they terminate all over the place, it would be a large complex collector for sure.
