There is a lot of stuff for the GS. It may not be listed in adds or web pages but, its there. The best thing to do is to call the vendors and ask for pips, filters and such. I think Suzuki even offers some cool parts for it as well.

I think most pipe manufactures probably make it. What brand do you want?

I'm not picky as far as parts go. I just hate the sound this pipe gives off. also I'd like to beef up the internals. although I'd love the GSX-R motor swapped into the GS but I'm not that familiar with swapping the motor (or if its even possible, without dragging out the welder and other essential tools.) Don't laugh, I'm just thinking out loud. I'm thinking of buying an extra set of body fairings for the GS and glassing them and doing some custom paint. but if you guys have any ideas as far as what would look good on the GS please do tell me. I'd open to all ideas.

Just order a Micron slip-on for the sound.
As for looks, Let your imagination go as far as the wallet will. Most custom paint jobs start around a grand and go skyward.

But the GSXR motor in the GS would be cool too!

That is bound to be more work than it would be worth. $$$$
I think he would be better off learning the 500 first then trade or sale to get a bigger bike when the time comes.

I agree with Jeeps. The GS 500 is a learning bike or a track bike. Unless you really need the small size, it's probably time to move up to an SV650 or ? depending on your ability.

Hey I never said it would be worth it... just that it would be cool/interesting!

Does anyone know what GSXR-600 parts are interchangable with 500f? I went to the dealer and they said some parts are interchangable but couldn't tell me what parts exactly are.

I know the race body can be made to fit and maybe the front suspension.
