    Hi There

    Hello and welcome
  5. The full disclosure of this nightmare is in a duplicate thread from a while ago but to cut a long story short, after taking on board some advice from the scholars of OSS land After some initial movement it was just not havin it so eventually Mr impatient turned up and I ended up with “err 2 very nice doorstops “
  6. When I can get back on to it, I’m doing something similar with my es. Regarding the foot rest mountings cut them off and make up new mounts. Then with the top shocker mount you have get creative with some tube to brace the frame and create a mounting for the shocker.
  7. Old topic. Let’s not re-live the nightmare
  8. Definitely EFE clocks Es clocks don't have the warning lamps down the sides, they are along the bottom. Similar shape though.
  9. If there is a code for the correct paint for the engine, I've never found it. Apparently smoothrite is a good enough paint to use but doesn't react very well to petrol. While i've been looking I was pointed in the direction of " Mipatherm" high temperature paint by @ral. I got mine from the bay of e. If you have a look at the topic GSX 1100 ET @ral there is a photo of the engine he has painted Looks good to me
  10. What makes you think they are 550es? They definitely came off my 750es
  11. Good to meet you today @Swirlhope the parts do the job
  12. Great looking bike, hope it puts a smile on ya face for a long time to come
  13. Does that mean when you get the new one fitted, I can buy the old one
  14. Great looking bike, you've done a cracking job with it where did you get the dark screen and bar end mirrors

    Best Gift ever

    Well don’t that just restore ya faith in human nature
  17. Can't take the credit for it though, from some talented chaps in Japan.
  18. Here's an idea for your brackets Because we like pictures
  19. Thanks @Duckndivegood to know, will broaden my search as it's a shame not to try and save the engine. For now though I'm going to put my other 1100 in and see what it's like to get the bike up and running.
  20. As some of you know I need a replacement rotor for my Kat1100 engine, and also I have to get the crank repaired. Due to the fact that I'm not having much luck at finding a good rotor, what I'm wanting to know is will a crank and matching rotor from an ET or EFE fit? as this hopefully will increase my chances of resurrecting this engine. Thanks in advance.
  21. Very wise words from Captain Chaos. Welcome to OSS
  22. 200 MPH in 6.7 seconds! he certainly doesn't hang around
