Suzuki GS550 outfitted with diesel engine / CVT

How did I miss this thread over the years??
Anyway, the Changzuki (Changfa 406 diesel) was shoehorned into the Suzuki GS550 frame, outfitted with a modified Comet CVT and geared to suit. Average consistent mpg (mixed driving) was/is 115 mpg. Below 45 mph 150-160 is normal. It's a pack mule and will also pull small logs during wood cutting season!
