    Yeah, I saw how outrageously priced the regular old B8ES plugs have gotten on Ebay. The fact that people can price those so outrageously high and actually sell them tells me there's still quite a...

    Fantastic! I never thought these caps were capable of being disassembled. I think what I'll do when spark plug time comes around again, I'll measure the diameter and lenth of the rod and resistor and...
  3. NGK non resistorized BxES spark plugs discontinued.. what now?

    Looks like the beloved BxES plugs were a casualty of 2020. NGK discontinued many of their Non-resistor plugs and it seems they left us in quite a lurch for those of us still rocking points. The...

    Hey everyone,

    im looking to replace my weaping head gasket on my 78 GS750. Looking through OEM head gaskets, I noticed Suzuki only offers the multilayered steel head gasket with the bolt hole in...

    I think I'm ready to pull the trigger on them. It looks like the only ones on Z1 that are 330mm and have the clevis at one end are CB750 specific (seen in link below). are these the ones that are...

    I was considering the hagons but they might not work out for me. it looks like they’re designed to accommodate a rider that is 170-230 pounds and I weigh in at 230. I’m guessing having my girlfriend...

    thank you Ed! I did see that page and that some of the stuff is still available on eBay NOS. Considering how old they are, they might just be functionally obsolete at this point. It’s kind of a...

    the chrome is actually really nice on the shaft. I don’t see any oil leakage around that area either but that probably means nothing considering how old they are. The only thing that I can see that...

    Iím considering rebuilding my old school Mulholland rear shocks for my GS750. They feel ok to me but they probably should be refreshed by now. I can see the top mount bushings are dry rotted so those...

    Fortunately I’m not in a huge rush to get them. I’m just hopeful they’ll be better than the Emgos that people don’t seem to care for. I’ll look into the YSS and see what they want for them. Thank you...

    Rear Pattern chrome shocks from Wemoto

    hey everyone,

    The Mulholland shocks I have installed on my Ď78 GS750 have had it. I know they were rebuildable at one point but I donít think thatís possible anymore due to the lack of parts. Iím...

    I’m really ashamed to admit it but I put the rear rotor from my parts bike on the front wheel. Stupid!! I stared at it for awhile and noticed the rotors didn’t match! Doh! No wonder the spacing was...

    Yeah, it’s a bit of a chore but I think it’ll be worth it. I’m just glad they made that screwup so many years ago.

    I totally get it. If you do get some spoked steel wheels from eBay, make sure the tire is already removed as rust likes to lurk in there. Sometimes you get away with grinding it out but other times...

    The cast wheels will bolt up to the ‘77 bikes. You’ll need to move your rotor and some of your hardware over to the front mag. The rear should be a direct swap if I remember correctly.

    I noticed a clerical error on my title made way back in 1979. The dealer or DMV reversed the frame and engine number when the bike was first sold so my parts bike was technically never registered. I...

    California back registration strategy?

    Hey guys,

    I ran up to Oakland from Los Angeles a few weeks ago to pickup a fully stock 1978 GS750E parts bike. I managed to disassemble it and stuff it into the back of my Volvo 240 station wagon....
