Check out Mad Git's KZ650, posted in Old's Cool. A VFR single sided swingarm is just the beginning of a long list of mods.

I wanted an 80s Yamaha rebuilt with better suspension and a retro yellow/black scheme. I found a 91 FZR (close enough to the 80s!) for next to nothing. I sold enough stuff on ebay to finance the project, started a thread here about the rebuild......then this came up...85 FZ750 with 8000 miles.....I fell in love and she followed me home.


The thought crossed my mind to update this machine, but after playing with it a bit I decided to keep her stock. This winter the engine and tank gets repainted and the carbs rebuilt. I have an original seat on the way for her too. Very cool machine that draws a lot of attention.

All of the project cash went into buying the FZ750, so the FZR600 project is gathering dust in the back of my barn now, maybe next winter.....

That's pretty sweet. Do you mind sharing what you paid for it?

The triples will be machined to accept the GS steering stem. I won't do any mods that require modding the GS's frame permanently. I'd like to be able to return to stock if needed for some reason.

I had it set up with first generation ('88) GSXR1100 running gear, clip ons included. It was a straight bolt on experience. Rear rim fit into the stock swingarm no prob. I did switch to a 530 chain from a 630. What a difference in handling and braking! The Bandit set up should be better, though, since the forks are cartridge type, as opposed to the damper rod forks of the early GSXR's. Can't wait to get her back together!

Here she was with the GSXR set up. Actually quite comfy on the highway like this...





A friend GAVE me the 4 into 1 header, and got a blemished peice from Dale Walker @ Holeshot.com, and that alone dropped the wieght of the bike by nearly 30 lbs. I have never been so happy to have a stock exhaust system (4 into 2) bite the dust I also score a set of original Mikuni VM33 smoothbores for it as well. According to the manual, they are good for 10-12% increase in HP (?!), and 3-5mpg increase in economy (IF you keep out of the throttle...fat chance there!).

And yeah, that bike above is a GS1150ESD. All hail the original GS!!

Finally got a scanner and this post reminds me of my GS1100E.
