Well I did buy a GS300 but that needed alot of wiring work that I didn't want to tackle. So I put it up for sale and went out and bought me a new bike. Here is my (new to me) Suzuki GS750. It is all original right now but I do intend to do the "bobber" treatment to it.

So do I. :mrgreen: I also realized that the front tire popped it's seal and won't take air now. Also, the ignition keeps wanting to lock the tree.

If you put it up on the center stand and have someone sit on the seat so the front tire is off the ground, it will pop back on the bead and air up. :tu:

But if it lost that much air in a week or two, sounds like there's a leak that needs fixing. :x

Well I have bled the rear brake. I still need to get a battery and fix the front tire.

FWIW, mine was pretty flat, and had sat for 2+ years. I topped off the fluid, did an overnight low-amp charge and it came back to life. Worth a shot?

Hopefully yours has the smaller (cheaper) battery. Ebay is the best place to get the smaller ones. :wink:

Well I took it to the shop and put it on Jonathan's charger. It seemed to take a charge, so if I have a minute I might try to pop it back in the bike and see if it will start.

If it does then all I need is the front brake master cyclinder. :D

If you want to learn from my mistake, drain the gas from the tank and put fresh gas in it before you try to crank it. :wink:

Well I hooked up the new battery today and gave it a go. It took a little bit, and I had to crack the throttle to start it, but it starts and runs. The idle seems off cause it won't idle on it's on when you lift off the throttle and I think the carbs are sticking some cause sometimes it hesitates before reving up.

So now I just fix the front tire, replace the front master cylinder and maybe try to clean the carbs a bit and we should be in business. :D :D :D

Well a little update.

I have been starting it and running it almost everyday. Some days it runs better than others. It still won't idle on it's own though. It still smokes some, mainly out the right side. I also saw yesterday that it had leaked some oil around the bottom.

The front tire is cracked so needs to be replaced altogether. I still need to replace the front master cylinder and the choke cable.

I also need to finish the legal paperwork so I can get a title on it. (Ahem - John) :D

Well I finally got a new front brake master cylinder installed, but can't quite seem to get it bled right.


Still need to get me a new front tire. I also need to finish all the legal paperwork. John, you and I need to get together, you need to show up this weekend bro.

Well I was finally able to take my bike on the road yesterday. I rode it from the shop to the apartment in Euless on 10. It is still way illegal but I enjoyed having my first ride on it.

Just when I think I got it all sorted out it screws me. I was having a charging problem on the bike. So after some research and asking some experts I figure it is the regulator/rectifier. I buy one and put it on.

Think that solved it, wrong. Me and my GF went for a ride the other day on our bikes and went to a local biker restaurant. Came out from having a drinks and boom battery was dead again. :evil: :evil: :evil:

WTF - so what the hell is wrong.

Of course, it got a new battery back in September.
