    Default 1983 GS650G Decals

    hi guys i have a doubt, i want to respray my bike and now i need to make models of the decals, i been searching the web for decal sets with no luck, the issue is that in my search i come across with two different models:
    875B0D98-CB25-4B76-812D-9F9E206D1DFB.jpg

    The first is one, only have gold decals and the second (my bike) has orange an red decals, so i was wondering why is there 2 types of decals and is there a difference in bike trim or something like this?

    It looks like there were different paint jobs per the same year.

    you can have a look at
    https://www.cmsnl.com/suzuki-gs650gt...488/partslist/
    which is for the USA model

    one of the first pages has the colours for the year, including the "tapes" being "Sunday Orange","Pure Red", and "Gold"
    In Bolivia, perhaps you had the other "Euro"? version but both show the same "tapes" in the colour chart

    as to which goes on your bike per the colour of the bike, you can look for Pictures on your search engine- it's usually a separate tab- AND/OR have a look here:
    The picture here shows orange tape on a black bike....

    If you want to break down and buy a decal set, you can check out http://bdesigns.ca/. He has done up sets for our Canadian '83 650G for at least two members on here, including me. That is, the colour scheme with Orange and Red stripes. I'm sure he could do something for you.

    Nice, and a Canadian source too! I'm thinking of repainting my '82 GS650G this winter, but not the traditional burgundy/red or black. I'm thinking British Racing Green, so I would need decals that would look okay in this colour.

    They should be taking measurements and pictures of the old decals before stripping the body parts.

    Also in Canada is Diablo cycles who offers a ton of graphic sets for GS's..
