    Official Part Name Question

    I'm in the process of getting my gt250 that I just purchased running and put back together and the cylinder heads look like they are supposed to have some sort of rubber around the holes where the spark plugs/boots go in and it is missing. It is the ram air version if that makes a difference.
    I was wondering what those pieces are called so i can look for them, or even better if anyone knows where to order some. Any help appreciated.

    thanks for the info but that term in the catalog is not coming up with any results. I found only one set just by chance and they want over 40 just for the set.

    It's a rubber grommet that keeps water out of the plug hole in the "ram air" assembly. Do your spark plug wires still have the rubber boots (part 27) on them? Is the grommet maybe stuck to the boot? Try looking at www.mcmaster.com at rubber grommets for something that might fit. If you have at least one good one, you can get them reproduced. Otherwise you'll need to contact one of the vintage Suzuki parts specialists like Paul Miller or Reiner in Germany.

    Search by part number, instead of term.

    If you look at the diagram in my prior post, I pasted the Suzuki part number there for you. It is 33545-34000.

    Adrian, part of the fun of owning old bikes is chasing down obscure bits. Dean just gave you the tutorial for it: search online parts diagrams (fiches) to get part number and name of the part, and then hunt down the part by searching vintage part suppliers (such as Miller for Suzuki parts), local Suzuki dealers with old (NOS) stock, vintage Suzuki forums/websites, and Ebay.

    It would be good to have a link to this thread in the FAQ section. Not that any of the noobs actually look in the FAQ section.
