    Default New member - Hello!!

    Hi. Just saying hello. I recently purchased a 1977 GS 750. Hasnít been used much in a couple years. It runs pretty good and the charging system seems good as per all the great info on this forum and the gsresource site!!

    Got forks seals, air and oil filters on the way. It was painted reddish by someone in the past. They also tried painting the engine black. Itís flaking off easy though. I plan to restore to original as best I can. Iím going to pretend the original colour was blue because I absolutely love the 77 blue!! Lol.

    I got a 80 xs 650 running and in good working order about a year ago. Sold it after I did everything I wanted to. Now Iím keen on restoring this GS. Iím already very impressed by the vast amounts of info on this forum!! I hope I can shed my lurking status ASAP and help others as I learn about these awesome bikes!!

    Welcome to the site, Guss.
    If you have been lurking you know pics are required even if it ain't pretty.
    Easier to show off your restoration progress.

    Welcome & congrats on your new project. Huge step up from a Yamaha XS 650 to a Suzuki GS 750. It's kind'f like jumping from a Ford Pinto into a Chevy Camaro SS. Should be great project. Good luck.

    UNI do replacement filters that fit on the original cage - work great. You will probably need to run some door seal foam around the top of the cage & also on the airbox door etc.
