    The bike has always leaned A LOT. IIRC it did lean a bit more after putting the Hagons on but I don't remember a difference with the tires. On a flat surface, it's okay, but if there's any uneven...

    I've done the swap and found a set of GS500 pistons with the original rings in them on ebay. Runs great but if I were doing it again I'd get the OEM rings since you're forking out for all of the...

    Update:

    Took the clutch apart again to triple check number of plates like somebody suggested. All good there although I did end up breaking one of the clutch basket retaining bolts. A little rusty...
  6. Clutch plates - OEM or upgrade recommendations?

    The clutch on my '77 GS750 started slipping last summer. I replaced all 6 springs with OEM suzuki parts and it was still slipping. The friction plates were either right at spec or slightly under so I...

    I replaced my cruininmage intake boots on my GS750 after one year. The rubber started tearing at the flange on multiple of the boots resulting in huge intake leaks.

    Finding a Weaker Carb Return Spring

    I've decided that the return spring for my carb rack is too strong. After a few hours of riding, my wrist gets really sore. In a certain sense, it affects "performance" since it's harder to flick the...
