HA! Depurpleization was one of the first steps of my 96 DR650 project. Though it should be much easier on this one.

He said head gaskets seemed to be a problem. Would be interested to hear of other peoples experiences
I don't know yet what I have to do to the triples to get them to work. I'll post whatever I do and I hope you do as well. Head gaskets, hmmm...
