I am in the Birmingham area. Anyone part of the Bama Rides group? Still haven't found anything, I picked the wrong time to buy a bike  :))

My post was in reference to the rear splines where they fit into the wheel.
I see that now.  :-[. If you are interested in greasing the entire final drive system, my info should be useful. +1 on the moly paste for the rear splines and easy to service while changing the tire.

Loved my ‘83 GS1100ED and the guys on the GSResources are equal to the crew here in being both helpful and knowledgeable. :great:
One problem the GS model has was with the regulator/rectifier and the stators.
IDK if the parts are still available but the GSR can let you know.



There's a fix for that now.  MOSFET reg/rec upgrade.  Bikes that have issues with the charging system have been using MOSFET units from https://www.shindengen.com/products/electro/.  I did that a few years ago on my GS1100 and just upgraded on my GL650.  If a person wants to get in the deep end of carbs, the GSR has all you want.  I agree, they compare well to the knowledge and helpfulness of COG.  To the OP, be careful how much money you pour in.  It's hard to find buyers that love your bike as much as you do in regards to what it's worth.

I don't see any reason to change these brakes, I almost always use one finger  :)) :73:

I agree, that using 1 finger has been known to work "as you approach/cross intersection's" but it has also been known to cause fights..   :rotflmao:

Ride safe, Ted



Right Ted same finger :lol_hitting:

The problem that you get from the tall shields and speed is lot's more strain on the windshield mechanism.
Keep an eye on it if you increase the size of the shield.

Ride safe, Ted
The price of one of those will get your attention! :-\

You can spend money on grease or spend money on parts.  If you don't grease them, or even look at them at tire change time, you can find yourself on the side of the road.  Hope you have cell signal when that happens.  Even with signal, sitting on the side of the road waiting gets pretty old pretty quick.  Been there done that on my Suzuki in my more ignorant years.  HTH :)
