    Nice build. I noticed that you have the engine setting on the swingarm would that be a problem because when the shocks compress the engine moves?

    Nice! I rode a GS500 for about a year. It was a little cold blooded, but a very reliable engine. I added a yosh slip on, pod filters, and a jet kit to open it up some. It didn't add a ton of power, but it had really great sound. It is air cooled though so you might consider adding some shrouds to direct air flow to the engine.

    Here is a little video I made riding the bike many years ago
