Suzuki GS650 (G) Forum suggestions

I am an BMW airhead guy through and through, however I had a chance to buy a really nice 1981 Suzuki GS650G cheap for my 15 year old to ride and get started on. I am looking for a forum dedicated to these bikes. Google has several options. Didnt see one here specific to those bikes. I need a couple of hard to find parts as well that ebay doesnt have.

Any suggestions?

Be careful.....

...... when ordering parts. The GS-650G and 650E had some very real engine differences, besides the driveshaft/chain. One has a plain-bearing crank, the other a roller. Most of the differences will not be obvious, and many vendors may not know about them. Do your research before shopping, and ask the right questions. Good luck.
