Thank you 2017dave for the words of encouragement. Ive realized it would probably be better to part this oll girl out after adding everything up I need I could go get another bike. Buuuut I also am very familiar with how legendary this bike is, so why not make it mine. I can redo every bearing and and part I can possibly replace and make it badass. Hell I think I'm about to sell my diesel truck just to put parts into this bike haha.Did this bike come with an air box ? What did the air filter look like ? Any oil in the exhaust , It should be dry :- black soot is unburnt fuel. Prepare for the worst Hope for the best. Like. 👍
Man oh man...
That is the old master cylinder, Suzuki will take that off you, if they see it.( It Is Faulty and needs replacing)
BillV makes a good point here :- I'm not 100% sure but it looks like you have the frame recall but not the MC recall. Beware, the bracket that supports the MC reservoir was replaced during the recall and has been removed from the market. It has some value for use with an aftermarket MC (Brembo, etc.) so I suggest that you replace it with a junk strap before letting Suzuki do the recall or it will be forever gone.
So here is what I think the screw looks like that I pulled out of it it's made out of aluminum. View attachment 573474 View attachment 573475
So looking at both of the holes I'm a lil nervous lol. Mine obviously needs to be re tapped. And the other looks like it's already been wallerd out and had some shady looking threads cut into it. View attachment 573476 View attachment 573477
So I'm thinking I'm just gonna re tap both holes. If they are to messed up I'm thinking about drilling them out and re tapping with the next size up? What do y'all think?
Also is this the bad master cylinder? View attachment 573478
