    met @haroon_1 last night with his awesome GS500e newly restored.... he was so confused about his bikes health that he was almost on the verge of giving up with her...

    I did noticed a little more noise then a usual music which GS500e usually have when he first fired up her engine, but then I took her keys and went for a walk with her in a quite lane to listen her then I took her out to the main road and throttled her like a wild lioness on the lose...

    SHE RESPONDED LIKE ONE AS WELL!!!!

    hitting 130kmh+ in 500meter patch in mere bunch of seconds... IS A NO JOKE U KNOW!

    she become hot and ready to do the belly dance then I again listened to her music and noticed any change in sound or power response but there was no change she was even responding more aroused ...

    So I told haroon bhai.... Yar teri mehrbani go tell hajji that he did a fine job, get its oil changed I doubt its not of good quality and get its tappets readjusted at 500km as well.. she is totally fine, you might get the noise reduced a little on tappet readjust but get used to it... she is littterly dancing on her toes... what else you need..I wish haroon @7thgear and monnoo to be in trip next time we hit the north... thanks for comming over haroon!

    hahahahaha,
    nice meeting u n yes i was like wtf i spent a lot of money and still its not quite.So worried for her. I decided to visit u and u gave a good time thanks for that. And yes your statements gave a good impact on me. I washed he by my own. Detailed with the best detailing stuff for the first time and now she is sleeping in a cover.


    now i surely go to haji sahab after 500km and will say you did the best. Hope he will do more. N yes i will change the oil(Liqui moly or Vavoline etc). Once again thanks for your time.


    Will love to go on a tour with you guys. Hope Monoo's ride will be restored soon as he is doing much much better then anyone else.


    Best Regards

    Not much. It's a simple air cooled machine.

    GS500e is in a death trap as soon as its stucked in traffic.... by traffic I mean Imagine data darbar or yadgar in June in rush hours... (guess how I learnt it )

    You will see the red (Alarm/low Oil) light coming up in minutes..

    IMHO Its a proper highway bike (for us pakistanis) it needs air supply to remain calm, in foreign countries its considered as a street / learner level motor but there streets are way better shaped then our highways...

    I have noticed Its very prone to heating up... and we can notice that on adding a cowl in latest model they added a oil cooler in new models to compensate the cooling from oil radiator.

    ISnt it possible to install an oil cooler, we can do it easily in any car. But i think it will be tough here.

    And bro, dont go to data darbar on this. As far as person like me, its totally spare for me. Not a daily runner at all. I have a 125 for college, A good jeep for some other tours. Its just for cruising in evening etc

    Original tank of this bike was in pathetic condition. Rust n welding etc.so instead of repairing it i used the tank of my 2001 gs which wass in way better condition.
    It had a fiber glass tail. But thanks GOD 2001 GS has a orignal plastic tail.so i used 2001 gs tail , tank n front head light on this bike.
    Cosmetic upgradez are reserved for my next project.
    I m sourcing all the engine parts again for my next project becoz i have used all the new imported parts on this bike.
