I owned one of these, my friends called it the couch cause it's so roomy and comfortable to ride. These are actually bringing good $ in stock form. They can and surprise people how quick they are. It was an amazing bike. Good luck with it, they are a blast to ride...

Caswell tank liner held a full tank of gas all winter(8 months) with no issues. Had to pull carbs off to install jet kit and found no tank liner contaminants inside the carbs. Great product and will use again for future projects.

Installed a Dynajet kit. The bike is running open velocity stacks with open Kerker 4 into 1 exhaust. Here are the carb settings that are working for me:
Main jet - 142
Pilot jet - 17.5(stock)
Neddle jet - Dynajet needles set on 3rd grove from the top
Air Screw - 1 turn out
Fuel Screw - 1 turn out

The bike starts right up, smooth idle and takes no time to warm up(limited time on choke). Bikes pulls great from closed throttle to full, no stumbles or hesitation. The suspension and brakes upgrades were well worth the work. Front fender will soon be installed. This bike will get alot of use this summer!

Wow that is a cool looking GS! Are the fairings/cowl/exhaust/rearsets OEM on this bike? Was this a special racing edition or something?
