  1. Probably go with powder coating for longer lasting finish.
  2. Hi folks. I’m about to get my frame, and swingarm ready for the build up of GS1000 project, what are people’s views on powder coat versus painting the frame? Obviously powder coating should be more resilient and longer lasting, but will painting be more true to original finish. Thanks in advance.

  4. Can anyone confirm is the front part of the airbox on a GS1000 are different between the CV and Slide carb models. Thanks
  5. Hi mate I’d have a look at csmnl as they show that type peacock for GSX1100 1981 https://www.cmsnl.com/suzuki-gsx1100-1981-x-general-export-e01_model13758/partslist/FIG-52.html#.XKTBXBrTWhA
  6. You could fit one of these taps which should allow clearance for your carbs. Available on Eblag for £30.
  7. It’s beenbadly painted by someone previously, so I thought getting it vapour blasted would get all manky paint off prior to re painting, if I just left it after vapour blasting woul dthe finish not tarnish? Thanks
  8. Hi chaps. I’m getting my engine aqua blasted and then want to paint it silver. Does anyone know the paint code for engines, or which paint gives best/closest match. Thanks
