i want to accessorise my gs500

  1. and before you all think earings, necklaces i just want a bikini!!!

    just wondering where i could get a bikini fairing for a gs 500 (naked).

    secondly i am not overly keen on the tank bag idea but like the idea of seat bag. just wondering what products and where i can get them people recommend. i have checked out the ventura seat bag it is good for easy removal, but is a bit small. also check out the oxford, but need a degree to attach it - tie here, twist here, overlap here, untangle here!!!

    looking for something that would general say fit a helmet in - or possible expandable

  2. Pretty sure I've seen people adapt gixxer6 fairing to GS's. Have a trawl through the "modifiations" category and I think you'll find a couple of thread about modding the GS.
  3. Bikini fairing try online stores or ebay. Bound to find plenty of examples. Go the whole hog and get a rack and matching bag. It's worth it. I have a Ventura on my Firestorm and it makes loading the bike up a breeze and doesn't compromise pillion accomodations or handling.
  4. Found it. EACRUISER is doing up his GS with GSXR750 fairings.

    Here's the thread:


    Here's a picture:


    If you could find just the creamy coloured bit at a wreckers I reckon you'd be able to make it look pretty darn good.
  5. MCA sell National Cycle brand screens in many sizes. Suzuki may have a genuine and overpriced screen. Didn't the GS (is it early or late?) come out with a bikini fairing for a while in the late 90s? Maybe a wrecker can help there.
  6. its a 2004 model
  7. Cant go wrong with a ventura rack and bag, theyre fantastic.
  8. i looked into the rack system, but i don't think i would use the rack all that often and handing over $370 odd bucks i thought a seat bag might be more appropriate for me (at this stage).
  9. Ferret ,i had the ventura rack and bag ,i only used it a few times ,more of a weekend away bag ,i just used a back pack.
    I just got a national cycle screen $200 and easy to put on and take off ,like 20 seconds AT MOST.
    It screws on to small clamps on the bars ,took about 1 hour to set it all up ,then you put it on or off ,depending where your going that day.
    Does and great job .
    Go the MCAS at parramatta ,there got a few different screens ,you take them out side and check the "look" on the bike.
    They look big ,but once on the bike ,ther not really that big looking.
