    Default GS undergoing some up-grading

    So Saturday i bit the bullet and started with my front end swop from a K1 600 onto my 78 GS1000E as the GS speedo seized up and ate the front wheel bushes & bearings

    Needless to mention my GS is my daily wheels

    Geez, I would have thought the cable would snap before all that happened.

    The Katana does not have provisions for a bolt on handlebar. It has a plate with clip on handles.
