    Coolio. I'm not asking for the recognition, but rather to help the site by showing others that the site is user supported.

    The Berryman product is the one I have always used. It works great. Ultrasonic would work also, but a long soak in the tub-o-carb cleaner has always worked for me. Just give it time.
  6. How do I get my "site supporter" badge so I can look like the cool kids?

    That thing in the title.

    It's surprising to learn just how frail some businesses and institutions really are.

    That was my next stop. I was mainly thinking the contact point between the lever and MC piston, but I'll lube both. This is mostly just poking around with it before I tear the whole front end apart...

    This makes me think back to the days of automotive forums when there would always be that one guy who said "cAAst IrOn dooOoesn't wAArp." Of course it can warp. Brake action is pretty good--no...

    I'm sure it is. But I will likely never push the bike hard enough to know the difference.

    I have a new G lever to install when I change bars, forks, and triples this winter. I have hesitated to change bars because the change is going to lead me down another rabbit hole of making/buying...

    First off, I'll say that I'm not following--in part because of the shortened season that probably should have just been aborted, and in part because MLB has jumped on the woke bandwagon and I just...
  13. Notchy (maybe not the best word) Front Brakes

    My front brakes finally irritated me enough to make me investigate.

    The symptom is that the level feels notchy--maybe "chattery?" I struggle for an adjective. As I squeeze the brake lever, the...

    I think that people get so accustomed to the feeling of chain drive that anything different is interpreted as a problem or a phenomenon rather than normal behavior of a different kind. For my part,...

    Thanks to all who have stopped in and paid a compliment. This kind of work is laborious and time consuming, so it means a lot for people to recognize it.

    I will try to get a sound clip up. I...

    The 1100GL has really impressed me.

    I had my first opportunity to stretch the 1100GL's legs a little this weekend. I still haven't fully explored top end power, but this engine has lived up to its reputation as a stump puller. You...

    I finally got to take a good ride on the GS1100GL this weekend. Riding up to this point had been limited to errand running, one work commute, and a few nighttime cruises that I was able to drag my...

    Thank you. Your answers are helpful as I consider a turbo build of my own. Supporting the turbo would not be easy, as there is very little nearby on the engine/trans unit to tie to. If I do build...

    oldgsfan,

    I am curious as to what supports the turbocharger when it is installed. I can't see anything that supports it, so I assume it is held up by the mid pipe connecting the header to the...

    I'm searching posts right now. The result I have found so far is discussing an 1100 D exhaust port head on a 1000, so not apples to apples. I would be surprised is the D port had lower port...

    That's such a nice bike. The styling of the Suzuki standards, whether G or not, is just perfect. I like to modify things--nothing I own from bikes to cars to guns to our house is exempt. But I...

    Are you referring to the cost of mounting only? The first local shop I asked about tire mounting told me $55/tire on the bike and $48/tire off the bike. Same shop is $32.50/$25 on tires bought...
