My Putt Putt

Well, I finally got all the work done to get the GS running. It was in rough shape. The carbs were all plugged up, the chain hadn't ever been cleaned or lubed. The swingarm chain adjusters were , all the plastics were trashed, it was just a crappy neglected bike. I ripped all the plastic off of it.

I added an Ebay headlight and brackets. Some Chinese bar end mirrors(they suck), and cleaned it up a little. As far as mechanicals, I put new chain adjusters, really cleaned and lubed the chain, and took apart the carbs. I cleaned them and put new jets in. These were a lil bigger than stock. Also added a K&N air filter. I changed the oil, put new plugs and she runs great now. The biggest change I did was swap in some Sonic fork springs, these are twice as stiff as stock and really got rid of the front end dive under braking. Best bang for the buck. I also have a Katana 600 shock waiting to install. I'm going to keep it like this for a bit, but I do plan of chopping the tail and modding the tank, and also swapping the handlebars for something a bit more aggressive. I'm back to riding and it feels great.

Nicely built sir. No doubt since it was a "beginner" bike it suffered badly but it looks like you are showing it a little proper respect.

Man, this bike is aggravating me. It was running like a champ. Yesterday after a ride I got home and parked it. I head inside. A few minutes later I go back out and I notice it has leaked out a ton of fuel. Anyway, I let it sit check like crazy for leaks nothing. I fire it up it runs fine, no leaks. Could've been a stuck float? The fuel did come from the left side carb, because it was wet on that side. Anyway, I go for a ride today it fires up, a little rougher idle than normal, but she runs. I take off I get about a mile away and she's down on power, won't rev passed 7000RPM. It was only running on one cylinder. I get it home, it's got spark, but no fuel to the left cylinder. WTF.

Took it all apart. Pulled the fuel bowl and here it was. Chunks of foam from a shredded breather gumming up the jets. Took it all apart, cleaned the out of it, replaced the breather put it back together and she's back to running great again. Feels good.
