Hello from Kokomo, Indiana

Post  Tbennett600 on Tue 29 May - 5:22

Hi Everybody. My name is Tyler and I'm building my first cafe racer from a 1978 Gs 550. It ran pretty well when I bought it last month but it's been having some carb issues as of late, so its disassembled at the moment. I'm hoping to get some pictures up soon. I look forward to getting to know everyone.

Welcome to the forum Tyler !

carbs are always an issue on these older bikes, the upside is one can fix the problem with a new gasket , jets , etc...

cheers m8te!

Yeah it turned out to be two ripped intake manifolds and unfortunately the engine runs on fuel, not air.
