Nice collection. Really nice 550.

Are the wheels on the gray bike tubeless or tubed? The est I have of those GS wheels don't have the bead required to hold a tubeless tire, so I had to buy tubes to slip inside the tires. That theoretically reduces teh speed rating from 130 to 118 but I hardly see that as a problem.

Yes.

Coyote did excellent work on RedZone. The only mod I did was to switch to bar end mirrors.

Also got the T500 from a forum member a few years back.
I upgraded it to a modern rectifier/regulator & H4 headlight.
The side stand bracket broke off & I had it welded back on. Also had the typical leaky petcock problem.
Has a bit too much fork spring sag -- am undecided on what to do about it.

The red GT750 has about 700 miles on a complete motor rebuild.

I got the gray GT750 after the PO did all the updates but hadn't sorted it out.
Had Avon RoadRiders installed but I don't remember if it has tubes. I haven't had any problems with air leaks.
Have just recently finished the sorting.

Don't know what kind of pipes the gray GT750 has.
Its gutless below 4k & makes good power 4.5k & up.
Its a bit annoying. Lots of hills where I live. If you pull out going up hill from a stop sign, it slowly accelerates while you wait for 4k rpm.
Am thinking about changing the gearing.
