    my 1980 Suzuki GS1000G

    130/90x17 is the one I have on my Z1000ST as standard fitment, do you think a 140 would make much of an improvement if it would fit? although I can't seem to find a supplier that does a 140/90 in a 17 they all seem to be 15 or 16 now.

    Thats useful then then, I did try to use the Vetter amber sidelights but was told it had to be a forward facing white light. Anyway I was not keen on the Amber light idea as someone may have mistaken it for a faulty left hand turn signal if viewed from a junction so I disconnected the low...

    Something to bear in mind when changing the sealed beam unit for a standard UK fitting is that the Vetter headlight bucket is very shallow and although the repalcement lamp unit will fit there is not enough room to put the side light holder in as the bucket is made for US lights that do not have...
