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.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.
Try Swedish bike sites for info. They sold plenty of them there and they loved them.Theres Loads of parts here for it in Germany. and I still want to derestrict it regardless even at 85kgs it makes a difference
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.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.
You asked, trust me, you probably don't want to know.A straight cafe line? What the hell are you talking about?
