    Ahh blast! I just want the thing up and running now. I think I have a cap somewhere to blind of the Tach drive hole, so I'll start with that and will have to do without the Tach meter ;-)

    Alright, I'm getting closer. I might have found out what it could have been. The tach-drive was not tight and even though I tightened it there still is a drop coming off it. I could suspect that it...

    Thanks John - so in case I get one that is prior 82, what changes would I need to make in order for it to work with my 85 harness? I'm guessing the ignitor box is what needs to be changed in that...

    Are all GS450 model engines the same?

    Hi all,

    My question is if every GS450 model had the exact same engine, i.e. would I be able to put a L model engine on my E model frame? I'm asking because I have been offered a really cheap...

    OK, it wasn't the bolt as I put in a new washer and made sure it sits tight. Did another test ride up and down the street, and this is how it looks. Maybe there is a crack somewhere and I have missed...

    Aha! Then that could very well be the culprit! Yesterday I checked the bolt and it wasn't all the way tight. It had a full revolution more before it became tight. The washer also looks hard and...

    Hi All,


    Running my head into a wall here…


    I have finished putting together a GS450 engine and found a leak coming from the head gasket. So I re-did the top, new gasket made sure the...

    Hi All,

    Here's an update. I took them apart again and massaged the diaphragms like it was a night with the misses. It seems to have helped as the time difference between them sliding down is...

    Thanks for the replies Guys - as always very useful and constructive.







    Both springs are the same, but I'll try switching them around. I have given the slides oil.
  13. Carb slides do not move at the same speed (GS450)

    Hi Guys,

    I'm rebuilding my GS450 carbs and have reached the final stages of putting it back together. I also changed out the slide diaphragms as they had tiny holes in them. The new diaphragms are...

    I see, my option is a specific / custom throttle cable. I will also check the handgrip like suggested by LAB3.

    Thanks so far.
  16. Throttle cable from GS500 on GS450 = Problem!

    Hi Guys,

    Long story short, on my GS450 I have a GS500 right hand control switch (the original one is dead - actually worse than dead!). The GS500 switch requires a different throttle cable. The...

    Hi All, an update.

    Went to the local mechanic today, and they have a hydraulic press. They gave it just below 5 tonnes, and it still sits where it did before, so I reckon it is fine now.

    Good news and bad news. Good news is that I found the measurement cast into the rim (thanks Nessism). The bad news is that they are thinner than I expected.

    Front = 1.60 x 18
    Rear = 1.85 x 18

    Yes - good questions. I thought the star shaped mag rims were all the same.

    They measure:
    - Front = 60 mm (2.36 inches)
    - Rear = 68 mm (2.68 inches)

    I measured with the calipers on the...
