Tank holds 5.0 Gal (US) and has a of about 170 Miles (on reserve at 140 The was the first year Suzuki Anti-dive valves on front (too bad they didn’t

PRICING: I’ve seen run from $1000 to $2200 on condition and miles.

production 82’s and all previous used pressed roller These were prone to during HARD acceleration. The (by the factory) was to WELD the crank

This was implemented halfway the 82 production year.

Two colors offered: Deep RED and Champagne.

I my 82 GS in Aug 94. Two prior owners, both in 50’s. No records, but condition that it was not pushed hard. had been down once, low driveway drop. Minor to right muffler which had replaced with new factory

Prior owner had also a plastic windshield, tank bag and bags. Mileage has been around 35 mph. This is than factory specs not sure why but may have to do with wrist position.

I hit reserve at 140 miles and dry at 170 (though not done this). Oil used is Gold 10/40 changed 2000 miles.

MODIFICATIONS: Metzlers (ME33 front and rear) with Dunlop (much improved!!), Steel brake lines (Russell), Fairing (Sport) with 18 (this was replaced with a Wes replica fairing, color of course, in 97), Barnett and Chrome case savers. and rear suspension was replaced by (front) and Works Performance This made MAJOR in the bike’s handling and control.

Stock exhaust was replaced (in 97) 4 to 1 unit from Motad (UK mfg). I liked this because it did not require replacement of air box OR carbs. Nice sound

OPINION: This is my first in 15 years. I wanted a (standard) UJM for and touring. I’ve been to Seca 3 times (

250miles one and have had no problems except toosh discomfort.

I commute to daily (44 miles round and it’s a perfect fit. some getting use to, the large powerful) motor, at first. But I in a C.L.A.S.S. riding school point) and this made a BIG in my confidence and knowledge of this

CAUTIONS: When replacing brake pads, noticed wear on right side disc’s. This was attributed to buildup on caliper/pad interface. The backing of the pad (edge closest to is supposed to move freely braking. Excessive dirt is back and collects around area causing the free to be restricted.

Make sure to and seal the tach cable. dry it squeals bad and leaks oil from top of connection. Gas tank float fall off in tank. This is by poor swedging of washer on rod. Side covers tabs) will break off

Poor plastic design no good fix. Tire and alignment is critical. High wobbles if this is not observed.
