To turn it into a magged reel ?

you can but need to remove cross bar on end of spindle.Can't remember of hand if loose ratchet though due to cog difference as a while since checked!
The S mag extra plate works and use a mono mag kit which turns it into one similar to 535 mag as that runs a mono mag and no brake block parts

Hi if you can't convert to mag side plate how comes my 535's have mags and are exactly the same as 525 GS!
He asked a specific question about adding a mag side plate for a later type mag ... if he has the GS then it has a fixed spindle and the two won't mix.

You could ''static mag'' it. Done it to my 545 and 555 and worked for me. I glued a small washer on the inside of the side plate and attached the required number of magnets to the washer. Trial and error on the magnet number and away you go.

I wanted to turn a pair of 525 gs reels into a magged version as i suffer from Rheumatoid Arthritis in my hands now days and find "thumbing" it hard so i mono magged them,easy job it took me about 15 mins each reel,mono`s supplied by Russ at Blakdog and they turned out perfect.If you need help there`s a comprehensive post detailing each step on his website just for that reel.A quick shot of how the reels look in action
