What's hiding among the triples?

Can it be?

Yup - there's a 'diesel! A '77 registered GS750B.

Managed to get out on it for a 20 mile spin over the weekend, and it rides very nice. Needs a bit of 'individualising' though. I fitted an LED headlamp, and it'll get some better horns. I've got some engine bars too, but they need powder coating, and a rack so I can fit a top box for Lynn to lean on.

Beautiful stable! In addition to the horns do you have any plans on improving the charging and ignition systems? I ask because of my experience with the coil relay mod. Biggest bang for the buck I can think of. ;)

Not currently. It starts on the button and runs well, so if it ain't broke, I don't intend trying to mend it.
All 4 are on points, and although the Gold 550J does have a misfire after about 4-5 miles, it'll get sorted.
The charging systems all work ok, the main issue with those systems is ensuring true battery voltage is getting to the regulator as a bad connection in that circuit can cause overcharging if the reg 'thinks' the battery voltage is lower than it actually is.
Motobatt AGM batteries don't like that!
Thanks for the comments. :up:

I understand your way of thinking 100%. However, I have a suggestion that I feel is worth following. Simple test. Check the voltage at each coil with the ignition turned on but the engine not running and compare it to the voltage across the battery terminals. If I were a gambling man, I'd be willing to bet that it's not the same. ;). Of the dozen or so Suzukis I've tested, only one was the same. The others were a couple of volts less.
