1976 Suzuki GT 380 Problems

where do I find an exhaust for a 1976 GT-380?

Rist00, you didn’t click any of kkpp4’s Looks like malware to me.

you’ve got one of the tougher problems a owner or restorer is going to

The exhaust system, specifically the tab for the passenger pegs was extended in I think was about halfway the production run. Low enough VIN and the 75 fits. Higher VIN and it won’t.

The in the frame tab required changing the mounting of the mufflers.

This one really baffled me the Japanese simply do not go through the of retooling without a darned reason to do so. In this case was some retooling for assembling the but, more surprisingly, retooling for the comparatively inexpensive system. And I can’t tell the passenger, which this was just barely gutsy to handle long enough for a to matter, got any benefit.

What you to do is measure either of your pipes from the rearmost where it mounts to the engine and to the on the muffler that goes to the or hole in it where the footpeg through. Off the top of my head, I don’t which it uses.

When checking out a system on ask the seller for this measurement or at the VIN of the bike the system came

When I restored a 76 GT380, I a parts bike for it and a loose system.

Neither fit. The bike was a 75, so I knew my problem was my was built after the changeover.

So if you a VIN real close to yours of manufacture would help, chances are good the system fit. But the only way to be sure is the I mentioned.

If you measure yours and email the to me at bobz@talkzilla.com. I’ll measure the I’ve still got and we’ll out something if we’ve got a match. I suspect you’ve tried and found they don’t so likely have an after-change and as you know, the model was discontinued later, making this a part.

Two other helpful if you haven’t encountered them or for the of other readers.

1. Baffles: the heck out of the threaded part of the bolt with an aggressive oil. I’m a WD40 but for stuff like this, PB is the game in town, IMO. You do NOT to break these bolts. You also generously spray the baffle fits into the The friction fit here because of can be a show-stopper.

Though it sounds awesome, run without properly packed Without changing main you’ll be dangerously lean and pistons, to the joy of your annoyed

2. A local salvage yard has more Suzuki GT bikes anything else seemed to be a but the bikes were all outside and all wheels removed. So they’re on the ground right on the exhaust. I a bike with a beautiful set of expansion chambers, tipped it and there was nothing left of from sitting on the ground.

Good like on what I is a restoration project. This is a fun bike.

I got most of the way through and sold it to a friend of a friend who an amazing cafe bike it.

If this is part of a GT collection putting together, you might to contact me on that, as well. got a sweet 76 GT-185 which has the unobtainable bike of the series.
