I figured it would be nice to have a thread where parts that directly cross over or can be modified to wok on an SS. I understand this is not optimal, but I need this info so may as well.

Thanks in advance to those who have braved the trial and error to get this information. I promise to update as I go through my complete resto.

These are the things Iím aware of that are not interchangeable. This is in the sense that they simply donít fit or do fit but are incorrect for each if swapped.

-headset, brake lever bolts and underside nuts, shifter tube and fasteners, throttle tube fasteners, grips, headlight fixture, cable bracket inside headset,

-speedometer fixing screw and speedometer bracket

-speedometer cable and plastic gears different (SS is blue, GS is white) depending which hole is in the speedometer but either will go into either bike (SS cable is thick, GS is thin, outer cables are also different)

-fork steering tube


-mudguard trim

-legshield trim

-floor rails and floor rail rubber

-tail light

-cowls (side panels)

-cowl trims

-flywheel, ignition cam (SS has space ring, GS doesnít)

-clutch basket unit (different)

-gear ratios different but can go in either engine (I think)

-crank, rod, piston different but can go in either engine (I think)

Iím sure Iíve missed some others.
