Re: Suzuki Goose 350
There is a bloke in Japan running a 644 goose. it's red with a hlaf fairing.
It can be done but it is not easy.
You can bore the standard lump out to 440 and get a cam, bigger carb etc.
On eBay there was a tuned DR lump for sale a week or so ago with a cosworth piston and fancy ignition.
Ever taken the engine out? There's not alot of space between the cylinder head and frame.

If your generator/alternator keeps burning out the stator coils, it seems that they are being overloaded. Since it occurs over an 8-month period, the load isn't like a short in the wiring, which would cause a fuse to blow. This sounds like a constant heavier than normal load since it takes 8 months to fail. The first thing I would suspect would be the battery. If it had a shorted cell, it would draw more current trying to charge. If this was the case, you'd notice slow cranking, etc. (It's also the easiest to eliminate as a problem) Next thing I'd look at would be the voltage regulator. Something is demanding more power than it should to make the alternator to fail so soon.
You can do the job yourself with no problem. No specific pattern for the side cover. BUT, get all the screws started then just bring them all slightly snug. Now tighten one screw and then go kitty corner and tighten another now drop down and pick a screw mid way between the first two screws and tighten it. Now do the kitty corner thing again and so on. As you know, the idea is to tighten the screws evenly around the entire cover.
As to torque, a 6mm screw gets 7 foot pounds or 85 inch pounds. Realistically, no one ever bothers with torque on small screws. You will want to spend $15 to $20 and get yourself an impact driver to tighten or loosen screws. The tool is about 6" long and 2" in diameter and has a 3/8" drive on one end. Your socket set will fit it as well as screw driver bits. Just engage the bit into the head of the screw and strike the end of the impact driver with a hammer while twisting the tool to tighten the screw. This is the most valuable tool in my shop and I use one (Blue Point brand) that I got 40 years ago. They last well and can be used on any screw, bolt or nut that needs a little persuasion.

The 10th digit in the VIN denotes what the year of the bike is. (as long as it is a 1981 to present)
* Beginning in August 1964 - 1980 a system went into effect that included vehicle model and year within the production serial number. This system defined the first two digits to indicate the model, the third digit indicates the year, with the fourth through tenth digits now defining the actual serial number.
If you call GDL Cycles they can help you. 1-888-707-2787 they also have a service manual available for the Suzuki GS750
Take it to the dealer to have a quick look at it, it could just be either a bit of running in stickyness or they forgot to check something was tightened up properly before you got your hands on it.
Failing that, try an oil additive such as Slick50 in the oil tank, a fuel additive such as Redex in the fuel tank and if the engine's water / liquid cooled (spot the bike expert) stick something like Redline Waterwetter in the coolant tank... and it might feel a bit better (and last longer).
