Suzuki GS 400 [1977]

I bought the GS 400 at Sande, Hausmanns gate in on the 29th of November 1977. It had 5240 km and the price was reasonable – kroner. I was living is Oslo and it was possible to ride the motorcycle in the too. I did the first trip on the GS 400 on the 10th and rode south to and the day after I did a trip to Moss.

We had a every weekend the weather was on the side. On February the 8th, minus 8 degrees Celsius, we had a south from Oslo.

When i sold the GS 400 in June it had done 75 000 km and had been a faithful on trips in the most of Norway, North Cape, and to Italy and and to the IFMA motorcycle show in The log has notes from all my trips, and of them with trips 600 to 740 km per day.

I was very impressed the GS 400 on the Autobahn in Germany. With no than 36 hp from two cylinders the was modest. But with the Rickman faring I fitted in the spring for the GS 400 became a machine made for the and a cruising speed of 160 km/h on the was no problem.

Suzuki’s four … was extremely reliable. Suzuki did not any chance when introducing first four … and the quality was first class. were never any thin with the GS 400.

It started every time. But on engines the shims used for the valve clearance started to It was not critical, but it made a lot of noise, and be scary if you did not know what the noise. The noise disappeared the engine reached normal temperature, but sometimes after speed rides on the Autobahn the was so good that then started when i stopped to

Some fellow motorcyclist was concerned on my behalf.

I tried different types of tyres on the GS: Roadrunner 4.10-18 rear the combination Continental RB2 3.25-18 and 3.50-18, Pirelli MT 15 90/90-18 and MT 18 and 110/90-18, Metzeler Block 12 3.00-18 and C66 Touring Speed

Today I can hardly imagine the Sella pass with a loaded GS 400. But back i the 400 had power enough to enjoy the and I can’t remember I ever for more power. On the narrow in the Alps and also in Norway, I all the cars and the feeling of freedom was as much present then as it is on bikes with much power.
