The T500 showed its shortcomings at the Gap this year so I decided it deserved some updates. I found a GT500 front end which gives me internal fork springs, and the disc brake is a huge inprovement. Tapered steering bearings went in too.
Special thanks to Frank John for the GT550 front fender and headlight ears and trims I didn't get with the forks. Thank goodness Suzuki shares parts across model lines!

I saw him this year. The bike is nice. Mark came and picked up a lot of my GT parts a couple of weeks ago. I still have a bunch of TS400 parts if anyone has a need.

Mark,

If you don't mind non standard parts, SV650 (same as EX500/ZX600 etc) calipers and lighter disk/s (say Honda CBR600F3) make a huge improvement and one is enough. I have two on the Phat Trakka and it will chirp the front tire if I'm not careful.
