    Just shove it in.

    Loved my resto.

    Although I put CBR 600 brakes on it with adapters. Made it a little bit safe.

    Jeez rode it up 90mike beach and stream at the end. What a bike. B
    I've been told. Dreaming`s free.
    Think I'll go, back to sleep.
    Everybody listen, voices in my head
    Everybody listen, do yours say, what mine says?

    This is from the GS1100G manual which will be fairly close to what you want wrt to the cable routing. As Jellywrestler suggests, try the gs resources www.thegsresources.com

    Took it to Boyles to have a listen. A few suggestions - possible cam end play or clutch basket springs. I found a YouTube of clutch basket rattle which sounded pretty much the same. Pulled the clutch out and all 6 springs in the basket are loose. Used the basket out of the spare engine (only two loose springs) and it sounds a lot better. Either way I'm more relaxed about the noise and taking it South next week. I noted the original basket (82) and the other (83) have different ID (K1 and K2) cast in and the 82 item has three heavy and three light springs - the 83 has six heavy springs so at sometime in the Suzuki timeline a problem has been recognised and changes made. I can get a Falicon rebuild kit - springs rivets and spacers - but it is too close to departure time to entertain that thought. As long as I get another 1000kms before it shits itself I'll be happy.

    You don't have to spend for the Falicon kit. I TIG shims in to take up the spring free play.
    Works well for road engines.
    Hope you get better weather if you're coming South next week.

    Hoping it will have blown over. Cold I can live with but not combined with torrential rain. Going down the West coast Friday which so far appears to have missed the worst of it.
