Suzuki Hacks

Regarding the GS1100GK, the custom subframe and mounting work was done by Lee Bruns in Watertown, South Dakota. Superb job - handles beautifully with light steering effort. I have had 8+ sidecar rigs in the past and think this is one of the finest. I like the older Suzuki shafties, and found the GS1100GK made a great tug. My son has the bike now (was I inebriated or was it a Xmas gift?). I also had an 1980 850G with a mid size Velorex - I forget the model. I went everywhere with that rig - deer hunting, through blizzards and more. Very reliable and comfortable, with a complete Vetter fairing and lowers. But the GS1100GK is really sweet. I would recommend it.

I really like your idea of using the leading axle forks from the 850L. Unfortunately the 1100 has larger diameter (41mm) forks than the 850(37mm) so that wouldn't work for me. Even the 1000L had the smaller diameter tubes.
Honda Magnas had 41mm leading axle forks thats a possibility

The leading axle forks made it real easy to stear,and for me it was about a $40 mod !!.

A hell of a thing to do to a 250Yama twin.
At least Robin could get away from this with his on board mini go-cart .
