Does anyone make heavy duty cylinder studs for GS Suzukis besides APE?
Try ARP, they have a set for the Pro Stock Suzukis. May not all work on a 4 valve though.
Why not APE??
They have great products and they support motorcycle drag racing

Brian, I've been building GS motors for a lot of years & have NEVER had a problem with an APE stud! Are you sure it's not the threads in the cases? I've just never had a stud "stretch" before if it was an APE stud. Not even with 40 pounds of boost! Ray.
Anyone ever use Titaniumn for Studs?
Here's the deal.Pulled the head to put a new set of valve springs on.Started putting it back on and when I went to torque the studs they just did'nt have a good "feel". We had another set of studs ,so I put them in. They torqued up nice and firm just as they should.I'm kinda new to motorcycles,so I'm still a little cautious about what I do,try to error on the safe side. I torque a lot of bolts and studs,almost daily. I have developed a pretty good feel for fasteners,these just worry me. On a good note I can't complain about their effectivness. I raised the compression on this to 15:1 and the head gasket looked great with no bypassing.
What torque lbsare you going with?
