    You need 4 arms or two bellies for the tubed ones... ;) well done. Balance them on some axle stands using the axles as a pivot using the heavy spot method. :)

    Leaks in the airbox (lid not sealing, foam not sealing), airbox to carb boots or carb to head boots would be my bet... Also worth making sure there are no leaks on the other side & that the vacuum...

    Welcome or is it welcome back? :) The 16v engine has some different characteristics to the 8v in the 850G, you'll definitely notice the lower weight as you say :)

    To fit the forks you’d need to change the bearing to the more modern one and use the 1000 triples. You would probably want the gauge cluster to make figment easier. I think steerer stops will be...

    The 78 GS1000E would be my guess.... right bore size and style for the dual brake bikes.
