    Unhappy Installing Deluxe Shocks+Disk Brake on GS150

    Hi everybody
    So here is the story.
    After a bit of collecting info, i came to conclusion that it'll be piece of cake to buy complete Deluxe front and install it on GS. So i went ahead and told my brother in Lahore to get the parts and send to me.
    Well parts arrived and i went to city, recieved the parts from Daewoo Cargo and arrived at Suzuki service center.
    Opened the package and started checking the parts and found out that not even a single bolt was included in the package, plus the speedometer cable plate was also missing. Bummer. Anyway, i thought it's ok, i'll get them parceled from Lahore as well.
    But after examining the shocks, mechanic told me that these shocks can't be fitted on GS's stock "Ainac" because they use different tighting mechanism at the top. So i said ok, i'll get the Deluxe's Ainac as well along with the bolts.
    But also little worried now, what if Deluxe's Ainac don't fit and if it fits, what if it doesn't match the lower Ainac (part of handle T) of GS??? I was totally counting on the easy replacement of shocks.

    Lots of hassle and can't really check and compare the parts at spot as nothing is available in my city
    Don't know if i'll be able to complete this project in my city, may be i will need to be in Lahore myself with bike to get it done.

    yup, GS ka spring bahir nahi aata.
    there is a side bolt inside with center keyhole in it
    though tried it already, will do it again and post the result with pics

    Bro as vickytulla and other members have suggested, my suggestion is also to leave everything intact and just install honda deluxe's shocks. all you have to do is:

    1. get the services of a quality/knowledgeable/experienced machinist (turner, lathe machinist, khiradia).
    2. ask him to make two bolts that employ the same principle of mechanical fastening that a stock GS-150 employs but the inner threads and length of the bolts should be compatible with Deluxe's shocks. the length part is critical because shock bolts usually rest on collars built in the side walls of the shafts.
    3. take them to a buff machine guy and have them buffed to a mirror shine, instruct the person doing the polishing to not temper with threads and handle them carefully.
    4. take them to chrome facility and have them hard chromed.

    install and enjoy.

    a rather inexpensive solution to your predicament but there is a chance that it will not work:

    1. get some honda cg125 (regular) shock bolts. from what I have seen, they look similar to a GS 150 from the outside and since they are honda's there is a very high probability that they will fit Deluxe's shocks. its an inexpensive solution that may or may not work.

    some friendly advise:

    it is always better to use as much stock parts as possible. therefore exhaust all other options first before moving on to triple-tee or column.

    Regards.

    here is another idea thats worth giving a shot:

    try to install honda's deluxe's shock bottles to GS-150 shock shafts/rods. I am thinking since their outer dia is the same, there is a very high probability that they employ same oil seal inside. or any one of the honda/suzuki oil seals can be retrofitted, solving the problem of the shock mounting that you are facing.

    if you can pull it off, all your worries will be gone. you will not have to change anything.

    Regards.

    p.s. if you ask me, my first recommendation would be that you get a machinist and ask him to make new shock bolts. the bolts should be for GS150 from outside and from inside machined to be compatible with Deluxe.

    actually outer dia of Deluxe shocks is tiny bit thicker than GS.
    I discussed this possibility with mechanic and he said there will be risk of seal leakage because of different dia of rods.

    bro, get a vernier caliper and measure both shock rods. they should be same in diameter. anyways, lets assume that Honda Deluxe's rods are slightly thicker. this will complicate the matter a lot. now you have to change the triple tee as well.
