Hey everyone I have a 1995 Suzuki GSX250F "Across" which I bought from a member 4 years ago (I think) and have ridden it continuously for maybe 3 years, more so currently due to a better paying job with a distance of travel to match. I was thinking of doing little bits of modifications to it to hopefully put some kind of improvement, I know it's a 250 but money does not allow for any upgrades unfortunately. Also I like to modify stuff, no matter how crap the original item is. Firstly I'll be giving it a good service...I kind of only did 2 oil changes in the 4 years I had it, changed spark plugs once and have never flushed/replaced the coolant...I was slack, poor and didn't ride it as much as I do now. Actually I spent more servicing time and money on the race bike than the commuter, I feel ashamed and feel sorry for the poor neglected Across. I had only recently changed the chain and sprocket and what a difference it made. Across was one hell of a noisy thing and now it is quiet without any chain slapping...by the way, the old chain nearly came off the rear sprocket which was what opted me to change them . Anyways the first possible mod...IF doabe at all...which isn't a small mod either...is the front brakes. For those who ride 250s...front brakes are shocking. More so for a heavy Across with a single front disc. Now I could just get a new front disc, pads and bleed the brakes with new fluid to definitely improve it, but I was thinking the other night...is it possible to put twin discs on it? I am pretty sure it can be done if I can find forks and maybe tripple clamps that can fit on the chassis, but I am actually being optimistic here. One of my concerns...will the chassis be able to handle the extra force applied on it when heavy braking? I compared the chassis of the Across to that of the VFR...and the stem on the Across, seems rather flimsy (I think it's the stem...the part where the bearings are for turning). If it can be done...would I need to reinforce the stem part for extra precaution and if I do reinforce it by means of welding extra support...would that cause issues with roadworthiness due to tampering with the frame? Also I assume I'd need to find a suitable front wheel if the spindle is of different size (unless you can get different bearings?), use a different brake line/master cylinder and handles to suit. Obviously if the cost equals that of an upgrade, I won't go ahead with it...but I do have a spare set of triple clamps and forks (albeit bent) from my VFR400 which I hope to be able to fiddle with and see if it fits. Had a search for head stem bearings and they seem to be similar in size. If it all can be done, that will most likely be the first major mod on the Across...if it can't be done, the money will most likely be scattered around on little cosmetic improvements and mechanical repairs. Any information, constructive criticsm, feedbacks would be great.
