It’s alive :cheer:
I tried to upload a video clip but it’s too large. It’s sounds really great.

That’s great news. You must have worked hard since your last post.
Could you upload the video to YouTube, and post the link on here? I’d like to hear your engine!

Here is a little video while I was bleeding air from the coolant system. It’s not the best filming but you will hear the sound :)

It seems to have a nice steady idle . Does it respond well to the throttle?
I had a look at your GS1000G too. That’s a good looking bike. Did you restore it?

I have to admit that I didn’t check the throttle response. I was focusing on bleeding the system, no leaking from the engine and so on. I discover that the fuel distribution pipe to injectors was leaking. Maybe I put too much pressure into it when installing it back? It’s a copper pipe. Thinking of soldering it.

The GS is all original and not restored (yet) The engine needs new head gasket and overhaul. Have stored it in a barn. Will be another project another year :)
