New cases arrived and rebuild looks like it is on the cards. However for now she will just have to sit there and look good till I get the GT on the road.

Missed this thread a long while back. I bought a monoshock 1984 PE175 this past year, damn good bikes! Glad to see you’re enjoying yours- it’s shaping up and looking realllllllll nice.

New piston on its way after a month of searching. One old stock one left on a shelf in Canada. At the engineer at the moment getting head skimmed and bored. She’s going to be super fresh with power valves and new seals all round.

When I was working at Suzuki dealers we used to re-profile the reed stops to a (I think, can't remember) 8" or 10" diameter and about 50% more 'lift'.(just about touching case radius)  o need to polish contact area with at least 600 grit afterwards.  Make sure angle of port and reed block all match up. PE175 was first bike I ever managed a 'tail whip' on, my Yamaha 400 was way too heavy to learn on (plus I broke rear suspension trying  ;D ) I don't like thinking about it too much though, makes me feel real old (almost 40 yrs ago  :( )
