Master cylinders required

My guess, one uses a 13mm and the other 15 mm master cylinder . I recall a swap that didn't go correctly years ago . In that case it was different MCs .

Clean the fuel system

Put new juice in the FD, Trans, Engine, Brakes . Get it running, ride it, it will tell you what it needs . Throwing cash at it blindly could be very expensive .

I see more than $300 worth of parts on it

Like one head and good cylinder, mono swing arm, etc . I'd go that if within 100 miles of my place . More if delivered with a title . Sand blast cabinets are magic workers .

The GS loaded will take me down with it, trying to dismount, without a side stand down . Techniques to put down a GD side stand work at WalMart, not when you need to get off it, in a hurry .
