    The GSXR 1000 engine is narrower than the GS due to the GSXR being liquid cooled (no need for space around the cylinders to allow for airflow, just a water jacket). The GSXR exhaust spacing is...

    +1 on the iridium plugs. They are more expensive than the nickel variants but they last a LONG time so you may save money in the long run. I haven't changed my iridium plugs in my GS1000 yet (no...

    The secondary breather is coming out of the clutch cover in the picture above. Hope your rings seat soon. If not, you may have to rehone the cylinders and install fresh rings.

    FWIW I have a 1100 cc Wiseco piston kit in my GS1000 and had a LOT of blowby mist coming out of the breather until around 750-800 miles on the clock. It took a while for the rings to seat. No...

    Not trying to incite an oil thread holy war here but is there much advantage other than saving a few bucks to using 15W40 diesel oil vs 10W-40 motorcycle oil which costs only a little bit more?

    I love the 4-2-1 design for ground clearance and the nice power boost my Hindle provides. It's nicely built too from thin wall stainless and all the welds are well done.
