  1. it depends on the bike, some go to the airbox and some just vent to atmosphere, ( like bandits)
  2. Suzuki isn't a big company like the others so they build to a price, all good for us as parts are more interchangeable
  3. I left that too my welder mate
  4. whats the plan ? i bought a 750ET and fitted an 1100 engine in it. exhaust fitted easy but had to use the 32mm 750 carbs till i sorted a set of 34mm 1100 carbs out.
  5. ok not a GS but on my GSX i set the ride height to where i was happy with it (frame supported), then laid the shocks with the bracket attached and marked the swingarm. it also depends on how long your shocks are as well. you can get the idea where mine are in the pic.
  6. yep i would i was riding round town on one of them before i got my licence
  7. yeah i thought we were talking about the brushes
  8. if you can't find the right size then get bigger ones and cut them down, its easy enough to do. generally they are soldered in but sometimes they can be held in with a screw.
  9. Yep thats what i heard
  10. the black engine will go in your white bike as its shorter from front to back than the silver engine, dont know if they are taller though ? but you will have to make some engine mounts, try it in the frame and see if any engine mounts will line up. if one does it gives you a starting point.
  11. you need to post a pic of your engine as their was a change around 83-84.
  12. yep, bin their done that couldn't find a used one anywhere at the time but did find a new old stock one
  13. if you mean the 16valve engines then yeah, the 8 valve engine has different mounting points to the 16 valve but not miles different.
  14. they say not to do that !!! its meant to go on the outside of the connector to keep the damp out.
  15. probably the best way would be to fit a wider swingarm, an aluminium one will be stiffer and look better than the steel one.
  16. have they got the anti-squeal shims in ? ive had the same problem a while back and removing the shims fixed it.
  17. if it where mine I'd just fit an OEM filter and be done
  18. yeah what Joseph said, some bikes don't like a free flowing filter unless you change jets or settings to suit.
  19. lol, ive no idea how wide the R1 swinger is at the pivot ? but where theirs a will theirs a way
  20. yeah i wondered that, i did the same thing with a Zed 1000 shaft frame with a B12 engine in it. loads of room for a decent swinger
