1 have a metallic red gpz 500s for sale, or p/ex w650 if possible.it has done 13,000 miles and is t+t till may 2009. it was the second bike of a mature rider ,and he has passed on his own list of past maintenance. i have fitted a new yuasa battery recently, and there is a brand new tyre on the front.i live in swansea ,south wales, and the only reason i want to sell it is to get another w 650. a much less enjoyable bike than the gpz, but i like the styling! mike aldron....01792 771092....mob 07866 276604...i want around £ 875 for the bike which is a 1998 registered bike " R "

hi i think itprob either moisture in the engine caused by short journeys and not getting warmed up properly or head gasket , try oil change run about for bout 500 miles and then do another oil change DO NOT use engine flush, it will remove all the sediment from the bearings that settles in them and may leave them with clearances that are too big and then you will end up needing a rebuild, this is from experience not rumour.

Today I unlocked and only pulled my key partially out of the fork lock. Later I turned the handle bar and broke the key off. Now I have 1/4" of the key in the lock.
Is there a easy way to remove the lock and get the broken piece out of the lock. I have a spare key.
Should I take it to the dealer and let them fix it?

Thanks for any suggestions.

hi, ive just had the chain, front and rear sprocket replaced on my gpz 500s, when i engage 1st gear (only normally when i first start it) i get a clunking from the bike, ocasionally stalling the bike, this happened before the chain and sprockets were replaced and i thought getting them done would solve it...any ideas?

Thanks for the reply. That book you have sounds interesting, I may ask you to look up a few others if you don't mind. Was the miles in US or Km, since you mentioned the UK? With the fuel prices so high here over the last year all makes of cycles 500 and under are almost all sold out in the street/cruiser version and command a high price in the used market. Only now with the bad economy and lower fuel prices are things returning to normal prices. The Vulcan 500 is a perfect fit for what I need, just can't find one but I'll keep looking.
