Gday all. I have another UJM! Bloody lovely things they are too. Well, sort of. I'm hoping this one will do everything my other one (1987 Vmax) doesn't, like happily scoot on loose gravel at 100kph, get over 200km on a tank, and run flat 11s all day should the urge get me (and it will.......a lot) WITHOUT BREAKING!!! Yep, of course it's an old Suzuki. The plan is for a do-it-all bare-bones streeter. This one is a real bitsa. I have an 11EFE badly-bobbed rolling frame (straight other than that), a GSX11 motor that needs a rebuild, 2 x GSXR750 oiler motors that run like a clock, a Bandit 1200 bottom end, and about 5 boxes of stuff. That's cool, it will come together OK and do the job well I rekn. Probably stuff the '89 "screamer" small-stroke 750 in it, complete with 4into4s to keep me awake, to help it down to the shops and back again (always did like 750s! ) to start with, then probably go for the GSXR7 top-end on the Bandit bottom to wake things up a bit........... But I have a few quick questions please, for the Old Skuzi experts? 1. The front forks are of the 1984 EFE "antidive" sort. Apparently this means they're crap (well, I mean even for '80s UJMs). The plan is to block off the brake fluid inlet thingy, then run Ricor Valves in them with new springs. Is that the usual Skuzi-trained fix for them? Is there a set of something later that slides in yokes and all that isn't fancy USD Gixxer stuff that looks wrong? 2. Some obviously well-intentioned "tuner" has lopped off the rear frame loop (12" behind the main centre rail) and tried to fit a "bobber" guard. *sigh* I actually like bobbers. I also like "brat" bikes. I'm a big fan of the "basic" bikes. Cafe's I'm completely sick-to-death of (it was bound to happen after 30 years of riding them I spose). So I'm not averse to a good cut, but I would rather have the frame not twist under me while riding more than is usual. Could anyone please tell me where the usual small bits of tubing for bracing go on a Skuzi EFE frame? Are they needed at all? Would a simple loop joining the hacked-off tube each side suffice on these things for restoring some integrity? 3. I have a tank off a 1981 GS750. It doesn't fit. Who'da thunk it? :huh I can carefully smash the under-insides in with a calibrated BFH of course to clear the twin tubes, but it possibly may not have quite the same integrity after a few rounds with a hammer and then a brazing rod to try to stop the seams leaking. Do you guys know off a tank/sidecover deal that will bolt on, besides the EFE set-up? Eg, any 1984-88 GSX 11 or 850 or 750 coz the frame is the same? Any 1981-84 early GSX11? That sort of thing, for when I cruise the wreckers then I will know what fits (handy since the bike will be 4 hrs away). Thanks in advance everyone. Much appreciated.
