    Been almost two years since I've updated this but figured it's the place. Don't really have too much time for the GSR these days

    Anyway, just installed this Delkevic exhaust last week and the Pirelli Sport Demons last year. Between ditching the crash bars and stock exhaust, it at least feels a lot lighter although maybe that's just in my head after listening to the sound of the Delkevic haha
    Had some clutch and carb things that needed sorting out at the end of last and beginning of this year - all taken care of and the bike rips. I do want to get of the case savers that go around the points/stator cover areas so if anybody has a pair hit me up.

    Bike looks good, Sam.
    That is a thick chunk of wood under the side stand.
    Do you think it is the taller profile of the Pirellis or maybe longer Hagons?

    The bike has always leaned A LOT. IIRC it did lean a bit more after putting the Hagons on but I don't remember a difference with the tires. On a flat surface, it's okay, but if there's any uneven surface I have to be careful parking it. From what I've seen they're all like this?

    Sam,
    I have two sets of case guards. Not sure what they fit though

    If there's a way to tell I'd love to see them put to use. I have reason to believe at least one is from a 750. I'd be glad to draw a template of mounting points and mail to you, take measurements and post etc.

    Can anyone suggest a way to confirm what I have or that they'll fit this 750?

    Roger, I've been hunting for case guards for my bike. My frame is certainly different from the OP's '77. But if you want to template what you have and mail it to me, I would confirm or deny that the holes line up with the frame mountings of an '82 750. AFAIK, all of the '80-'82 750 models, and the '83T frame mountings are exactly the same. Someone correct me if I'm wrong.

    Same, when I picked up a '77 GS550 to fix up last year I bought a pair from Z1. They just have generic sizes (330mm, 340mm, etc) and don't match the exact spring rate to the bike. I ended up going for the slightly oversized 340mm for a little more of an aggressive ride which I like the feel of but the spring rate is slightly too high.
