Some models have cast wheels that are not originally approved for tubeless use, such as the 82-83 GS1100E (chain drive) and most 1980 and earlier models.

However, lots and lots and lots of people have converted alloy GS wheels to tubeless with excellent results. Please do a search on thegsresources.com for the full story and the raging debate (no need to rehash it here).



Crap -- just noticed that your question is a few months old... oh well.

1982 gs1100e i picked up yesterday with 19k original miles- pretty clean shape, not perfect- i want to build it into a highway tourer for visiting family on the west coast. my friend dan (behind bike) taught me how to ride on his '82 a long time ago. yeah i know, ha ha... he is hating me in this pic for buying this bike...

sounds sweeeet with the vance and hynes 4 into 1 but im already collecting dirty looks from the neighbors...

needs shocks,fork seals, tires, bars and a rack, maybe a tiny fairing. slap on my tank bag and make for the horizon

that uni sticker is just to cover a hole in the tail section where there used to be a flushmount turn signal. the air box is still intact-

My GS500, its great around town. Thought I'd revive an good ol' thread. Previous owner had dropped it so i was in the process of putting on new SV650 mirrors. All the exhaust, side cover, etc are new to the bike replaced by yours truly. Just got a new set of rubber, front springs and a rear katana shock to go along with it!

That is a beautiful machine. There is a GS1100E 1983 at Action Sports in Alliance, Ohio. Owner is the parts man at the shop, bike is clean and mean. Want it badly, better judgement says wait. How often do nice examples come around?

i don't know why but i'm smitten with the old school suzuki drag whores. the bike was bought new to drag race by the original owner. he blew it up and parked it. resurrected by the second owner. 1800 original miles (geez, how many 1/4 mile passes is that? better get the calculator)
still has origianl bodywork, gauges, wiring harness, etc. my plan is to put a street tire on the back, find a baffle for the star header. and plate it. first though, terrorize the neighborhood with it. need to figure out a route with no right turns

I'm glad this thread is getting some attention.

My 1980 GS850G has been sitting too long, and I hope I can get some work done on it this weekend.


Has anyone gone the sidecar route with one of these?

Here's mine. 1982 GS850L. Bought brand new out of the crate in early '83. Timeless beauty and reliability. Hasn't let me down in almost 30 years.
