Odds n Ends / Re: A million dollars but...
« Last post by KHnTX on Today at 08:06:50 AM »

1 million but every place you sit down you are crammed between two sweaty sumo wrestlers that only wear the loin cloth. 
I did a lot of searching for info, reading, calculations, etc last year about the GS's charging system and what it could support when I was getting ready to do my headlight swap (went to one that uses two bulbs, an H4 and an H7).

I can't remember the details off the top of my head anymore but basically, if you swap as many of the stock bulbs (tail light bulbs, dash bulbs, headlight bulb etc) for LED ones it frees up a decent amount of power for extra add-ons.

If you'd like, I can dig out my notes and numbers and post what I found.

That would be interesting to actually see, though I don't want it to be inconvenient   What I will do though is change everything to LED. The TRUgel battery that I habe really is a beast.

I do that when it rains anyway, so yes.

1 million but you have to ride only a Harley.

I guess I assume most home mechanics will at least check the starter before buying another one. Check the most likely thing first, that's how I prefer to spend my time. But as you say, I'm far from an expert.

Vacuum leak, float level too low, etc. Best to assume something went wrong with the most recent work.

It is true, it makes no difference.
What matters is the air volume, and that's not affected by the direction of the springs.

Since the previous owner "rejetted," it could actually be getting too much fuel at full throttle. Did he say what jets he put in?
Is the new air filter a stock paper Suzuki filter or something different?

So i've noticed on my 1992 GS that when i speed up hard it feels like it won't get enough fuel, If im pressing the throttle all the way down it 'suffocates', but gently moving the throttle it acts normally, but ofcourse.. more slower accleration, and this happens mostly on 3-6k rpm, over that it runs fine, except for longer distances full throttle, it again, feels like it runs out of fuel, last owner said, since i have had it less than a week that he cleaned carbs and the gastank, rejetted and switched sparkplugs & ignition coil, voltage regulator and new airfilter. New fuellines are on they way, but doubt that they're the problem.. any ideas?
