Shims and horns

Posted 04-13-2012 at 11:59 AM by sschering

I finally got the 79 GS1000 ready to ride for the season.. Well almost..

I finally checked and re-shimmed the valves..
It needed it in a bad way.. all but two valves were less than .0015".. Now they are all between .0025 and .0040 and it starts runs much better..
It still needs the carbs synced and I have to put new seals in the leaky tach drive..

While I was messing with it I replaced one of the sad factory horns with one I salvaged from an old Cobra bike alarm.. The coba horn so so damn loud my ears were ringing.. That's a good thing right?

    Cool idea using the 'Cobra' horn!
