That sounds scary as fook Blue! 

Buddha, I thought about trying to figure it out but after pushing it 1.5 miles, throwing that ignition in the trash was tooooo satisfying :icon_lol:

Security bolts were, interesting.  I tend to forget to take pics until I'm already started,... So for anybody doing ignition swap for whatever reason, unless someone already changed the security bolts,..


Yes you have to take it off,... Not really a big deal.  Couple fork clamp bolts and the big center bolt and however your gauges mount,....


Flip it over and admire the security bolts.  Breathe in and think htf am I going to get those out.


Personally left hand drill bits always seem to work for me.  I picked up some irwin quick easy outs that are double ended that work pretty well but did not work for this.  Started with small lh bit and went bigger until it caught and took them out.


Figured some allens would work fine,...


Tightened them down,..


Torque everything down,..


Yay, and I actually have a steering lock that works now.  I used an EMGO #40-71030, new off ebay for $24.59


This was probably 2 weeks ago.  Been working great since. :icon_mrgreen:

Are you going to mess with the locks on the seat and tank to make them all match?
Is the EMGO key blank the same as the stock Suzuki key?

Heyyyy Blue,...
I'll leave it two keys.  I just don't care that much to mess with it,... Rather put my new brakes on

how have i only just seen you've wound up with seamax's bike :icon_lol: it's possibly the only example of a faired gs that i actually quite like  :thumb:

so... gsxr1000 swap  :icon_twisted: :icon_eek: look forward to seeing how that goes. i put some thought into these silly swaps occasionally and from eyeballing i reckon an inline 3 fz/mt09 engine would be the way to go, quite small, lightweight and so unbelievably punchy. like that last mental cbr600 build showed, the engine needs to be offset so far for the chainrun, an i3 or big single would alleviate the engine offset by a fair margin i'd assume. ah i dunno but looking forward to seeing what happens with it.
current project list:
//cbr 600 f3 fighter
//gsxr 1100 mental oldskool supersport
//gs500 daily rat tracker cafe fighter that changes every couple of month... cafe fighter?

Once in a while when I catch up on this thread it makes me really happy that she was given to you. I'm happy she's on the road again and and cruising.
Keep us posted. I love reading the adventures, mishaps and future mods.

Seamax!  The legend himself stops in!  :icon_mrgreen:


Not much of any updates.  I still haven't put my brakes on.  Been riding about 4 days a week and little bike on the other days.  This pic was after got home last night and checked oil just to see how it looked.
Had the rear brake light switch bind up a few weeks ago.  Was making the light stay on and I took it all apart, made a new little offset bracket and reinstalled.  Been ok since that,...
One of my fairing mounts broke a couple weeks back.  Heard this vibrating obnoxious sound start to get louder and louder.  At least it was obvious where it was coming from.  Welded it up, shot with some high solids black and good to go,.... :icon_mrgreen:

Fun, fun,... Went to leave this morning and >clunk<,...  Starter turned over a few times and then -click- nothing.  Hmmm awright.  It's been a little colder and last week seemed like my battery wasn't happy. 

Put it on the charger and took off on the wee bike.  Came home to 100%, hit the button and -click-.  Hmmm again.  More like, farrrg.  Jump the solenoid with a booster on it just in case and, nothing.  Seriously my starter crapped out?  I didn't have any time to mess with it.

Thinking about how the starter sounded it was kind of clunky sounding.  I dunno,..  I'll report back with more as I mess with it :dunno_black:

-------------------------------------------------------------------------
Went and jumped the solenoid with a screwdriver and it turned over.  Ah ha,...!  I guess my Lisle starter jumper is broke cause it didn't work.  Replaced the solenoid with one out of parts bin and all good :icon_mrgreen:





I had considered going to pick up this turd in San Marcos.

On marketplace, she wants 750.  Hmmm still thinking about it since mr72 won't pass me that scooter,.. :hithead:
