The conversion certainly looks the business.

If it were me I'd consider an oversized rotor and supermoto caliper for better braking. The brakes are suitable for a 240lbs bike off road, but for me they would be insufficent for road use on such a heavy bike.

Were you able to buy sufficiently stiff fork springs? The GS has got to weigh about 200lbs more than the YZF.
