Lov­ing the GTS 2

Classic Motorcycle Mechanics - - FEEDBACK -

Great write-up on the GTS1000 in the April edi­tion and I agree with all of Mossy’s points about the looks and the weight of the bike. I have just spent 18 months do­ing a full re­build of a non-abs 1992 GTS1000 and cor­rected a lot of the is­sues you raise in­clud­ing the rear hug­ger and chain-guard (now car­bon YZF ones, hand carved via Dremel to fit.) Plus mod­i­fied in­let and ex­hausts to try and get back to the orig­i­nal YZF horse­power. Wil­ber shocks back and front to bring the shocks up to date. Cou­pled with a Yamaha Mo­togp colour scheme with pow­der-coated frame and steer­ing, it looks great. It would be great if you could do a fol­low-up ar­ti­cle on my bike to show how a mod­ern GTS might look. Frank Cooke
