    Looks like the one in your link is also 6" & from an "L" model. I don't know how to do links, but go to ebay & put in 1978 Suzuki GS750E complete headlight, there's one there that may be something to...

    Around here non ethanol gas is very easy to find, just costs a few cents more than E10. I never thought it wouldn't be that way everywhere. Well, maybe California, but they are kind'f different than...

    That looks like a plain old round 7" that came on many, probably most all, GS models, not the 6" "L" nor the 8" "Train light models.

    Pet cock should flow fuel freely only in Pri. position. ON & Res. should require vacuum to open & let fuel flow. Yes, gas in crankcase you have both a not sealing pet cock & a leaking needle & seat....

    Blue is a lighter, happier, upbeat color, black is a dank, unhappy, sinister color. Can you tell I'm not fond of black bikes. Either way, Good luck & welcome.

    Everything OEM except K&N filter in the orig. air box? orig. jetting will be fine. If it were me, I'd go up a size or 2 on the pilots, These bikes stock were a little cold natured, this minor change...

    Yep, looks pretty much stock except for red plug wires & exhaust. Back in the day, I had a Kawa. KZ1300 with one of those detoured exhausts on it, knowing how that 700 lb. locomotive ran, it's hard...

    That is really nice, I love the way it looks so close to orig while being so far from orig. Scale of 1 to 10, I'll give you a 26. Congrats, & thanks for the picture.

    Maybe you're lucky & someone has changed your pet cock, but many of the "80" GS's didn't have a Res. I'm thinking if yours has a screwdriver slot instead of a little lever there is only ON & PRI....

    On Prime the fuel should flow full stream constantly, vacuum or no vacuum, vacuum has nothing to do with that position.
  18. There's "GOT TO BE" be vacuum on the small line...

    There's "GOT TO BE" be vacuum on the small line at the pet cock to make the fuel flow when in "ON" position. That's how they work, when in "ON" no vacuum (eng. not running) fuel is automatically shut...

    Uh, Uh, Uh, Uh, Seems strange from what you did. Raise rear of tank & unhook fuel line from pet cock,. turn to Pri., if fuel flows full stream the problem is something farther down.

    I'm thinking the "80" & "81" 850, 1000, & 1100's used that switch without the choke on it, probably had the # 49233. If you look them up on the parts charts today, they show the 45373 # that has the...

    Just figured his "jump" meant roll it off & let the clutch out (yes "push" or "bump"), if jumper cables it would be too obvious the batt. was the problem. Fuses & clutch switches normally work fine...

    I'd think the most prominent cause of starter button not working is the clutch safety switch. Oh yeah, welcome.
