Smooth, Solid and Reliable

In the Suzuki established itself as a of solid reliable two …

The 500cc Twin cylinder had built a reputation as an indestructible that could also be as a performance race bike. The Hustler was both fast and a performance twin. The 350 Rebel was a fast bike with a reputation for speed and handling.

Suzuki released a range of cylinder two strokes early in the they chose a specific that varied greatly Kawasaki who also released a of two … triple cylinder at the same time. The bikes released were the GT 380, the and the water cooled GT 750. All models were aimed at the market.

The 380 and 550 had a ‘Ram Air’ cooling which really consisted of a amount of finning around the air motor. This not only did an job of cooling the bike but also reduced the normal two … and engine noise. The bikes had 4 exhaust pipes from 3 which also silenced the noise but contributed to the weight.

The on all three bikes were as silk and delivered a pleasant from the exhaust, in fact it was the time I ever heard a two actually sound good.

All bikes were chunky bikes for their class, but combined with wide seats made for a solid mount. The motors were to give a wide torque rather than peaky performance. They had excellent petrol tanks, push starter motors and digital indicators. The first models had brakes but were rapidly by disk brakes.

I personally owned both a and a GT550 and did huge miles and commuting on both. The motors extremely reliable and simple. were easy to maintain, to run and very comfortable on really trips.

Because of their state of tune they also quite reasonable it comes to petrol consumption.

The for such chunky heavy was average but could be improved by the rear shockers with aftermarket units. The swing arm were actually nylon, so I mine with brass The massive three into exhaust pipes could be by 3 into one performance pipes and tyres seemed almost made for these tourers.

You could also port the and increase the jet size to significantly horse power. Many triples were raced all over the world.

The Kawasaki 250, 350, 500 and 750 two strokes eye popping powerhouses that a white knuckle adrenalin But they also were chewed through petrol and had a edge power delivery. also wore out fairly and had poor performance when got hot. especially on some of the hot days we get in Australia. I loved my and they never let me down.

I needed a good reliable that would take me on tours around the country. then in the 1970′ there was few that could match the solid reliability of these and they deserve their as true ‘Classic’ bikes. built it’s reputation on bikes and went on to produce first car a four wheel with a 550cc triple two …. what more can I

Restoration Tips:

The most factor to look for when a Vintage Suzuki for restoration is the bike still runs. If it run how long has it been since started, how has the bike been and where has it been stored. If the В has been stored in a dry spot then there is a chance that the motor has not got inside.

If exposed to water the alloy of carburettors and engines can corrode rotting and welding parts destroying bearings and seals. a bike at regular intervals and the fuel system occasionally can the difference between life and for an old motor.Suzuki used an oil mixing which pumped oil through the bearings before mixing the fuel.

If you run the bike on premixed two without using the Suzuki CCI you will destroy the motor On a bike as old as these early models you will probably to replace the seal between the and gearbox. If you don’t and the seal is you will burn gearbox oil the fuel and the bike will run rough and foul spark

Parts are still available in and onВ eBay especially on some of the new Motors sites specializingВ В in bikes. Read my Hub on this. You can read moreВ at my Hub В on Vintage Japanese Motorcycles.В

— Happy Restoring.
