    Hello

    Can anyone help!!

    I have bought a gsx400e (1985) GK53C. however its a german registered bike and rumour has it this bike was sold restricted to 27hp as aa german learner bike as opposed to the normal 42hp when sold elsewhere.

    Does anyone know where the restriction is and how to set it back to at least its original state or more?? Will changing the CDI IGNITOR for a derestrcited version have anythign to do with it??

    I have searched all the forum and there really is nothing on this that i can find.

    Thanks for any help, much appreciated.

    DB.

    Ride it like it is. The full power ones are a bit fragile and getting parts now would be a drama IMHO. If you are a fat geezer, you would not even feel much of a difference in riding the two models.

    Try Swedish bike sites for info. They sold plenty of them there and they loved them.

    Don't be surprised if the 27PS version has low comp pistons, tame cams and tiny valves.

    And if the quest for knowledge fails, at least you will know someone over there, to order some suede flares from.

    Could be an easy fix. Carb to head rubbers can be restricted. Check the carb sliders open fully, if not carb tops could be restricted with washers.

    They also used exhaust restrictors as well as inlet restrictors. I doubt Suzuki would have gone to the trouble of different pistons, cams and valves to de-tune these bikes.

    It's not hard for a manufacturer to put in fatter valve seats and smaller valves. Cams are easy enough to grind for less lift, and taking .5 off the top off a piston when it gets it's final machining is not hard.

    The SR500 48T in Germany put out about ten horsepower less than the first 2J4 model. To do that, the cam, piston, carb, exhaust and ignition would be tamer. Just restrictors either end, or a throttle stop, would not back that many horses off.

    Also dont think I have seen this bike done yet in a cafe style, anyone?
