Hello all

Thanks Kenneth for adding me to the group.

I have recently picked up a KTM 350GS which i'm endeavouring to restore (my first), so I will be seeking sage advise, tips and tricks to get it back to it's former glory, like the one on the poster that was on my bedroom wall as a teenager.

I apologise in advance for any stupid questions.

Cheers

Box

Sorry for the tardy replies, yes it is a 1987 350GS, has a 15 Litre tank which I think is a score.

Thanks for the detail regarding the piston, I'm gradually compiling a list of what I need and I suspect its going to cost a tad more to restore than what I told the wife...I can see a lot of handbag shopping in my future!

I'm finding it difficult to track down seals/ kits to refurbish the brake master cylinders and callipers...any clues?

All assistance is greatly appreciated.
