Any suggestions on what my problem could be? I noticed the seal between the air filter and carb was loose the boot wasnt in the airbox groove completely. Maybe it was a vacuum leak causing it?

Odds n Ends / What 4-Wheeled Vehicle Do You Drive?
« Last post by rscottlow on Today at 10:07:02 PM »
I finally bought a new car! Well, it's been a few weeks now, but this has been in the works for quite some time. I've been driving a 2004 Ford Ranger for a few years, which is great for my hobbies, but less so for family life. I'm the proud new owner of a 2013 VW Golf R! It's interesting, having a car that's faster than my motorcycle  :icon_lol:

What do you drive?

i dont drive but 4 wheeled vehicles? my battlecow . has 3 wheels, an outriggre wheel, and an engine. sooo it kinbda counts. btw those snow tires? or is snow not really an issue for you?

Haha nice! A car is a must here with two kids, living in the suburbs.

Theyíre all-seasons, but look more like a summer tire. Nitto Neo-Gens. There is a guy locally selling a set of lightly used blizzaks on VW wheels, off his mk5 GTI. My bonus should be here soon, so Iím thinking of picking them up. Either way, not a big deal as I kept the Ranger and will likely drive it if thereís any meaningful amount snow on the ground.


I drive an 05 Corolla that I bought when I was 18. It's nothing fancy but it gets me where I need to go. I do plan on upgrading probably next year or so, probably a Subaru WRX but maybe a BR-Z.

I really like the BR-Z, but itís not much of an option for me with the whole family thing going on. If I ever get a coupe for weekend driving with the lady, it would probably be a convertible...Z4 maybe.

A carb sync will really only make the transition off of closed throttle smoother and minimize the herky jerky when trying to hold the throttle under power just off an idle, it really won't do much of anything for power, basically it just makes using the throttle down low smoother.

EDIT: It makes the carbs work as a team, instead of one working harder than the other.

This is an old pic (you can tell by the front end of the GS lol) cuz it's rare that all 3 of my vehicles are in the same place.

General GS500 Discussion / Re: Fork Replacement
« Last post by J_Walker on Today at 08:52:10 PM »
Oh Ghost who walks,
Those are the bushes to which I have referred. If they are worn even a tiny bit the forks end up sloppy and gape at the seals under load. Not dear to replace if you have the forks apart.

Hmmm interesting. but manual doesn't seem to provide a "spec" for measuring them to check for warn-ness

I thank you for these valuable information.

I have a list of things to modify in my gs already.. however, in the meantime I will refining this idea and trying to get even more info.  But as you said.. with some sweat and time is feasible!
Thanks again
