Re: Suzuki GT380?.

Actually a google suggests it was only the 380 that ran counter clockwise. So long ago I cant remember what the mates engine size was.

Re: Suzuki GT380?.

Wasnt the 550 the only one out of the 250, 380, 550 and 750 that had a counter clockwise crank rotation?
Vaguely remember trying to set up 550 timing with electronic ignition and couldnt work out why it was retarding with revs instead of advancing?

Re: Removing A4 Headlight Brackets

Bike on center stand, jack with wooden block under the engine, lift the front end high enough to get the front wheel out, slide the legs down ehough to be clear of the headlight bracets, put the new ones in and reverse the procedure. Keep an eye on the brake pipes or unbolt the callipers.

Re: Forks knocking at full extension/rebound

That seems to have sorted it. Made the missing bits and fitted the ones in pic three. Front end is a lot stiffer which I like and no knocks anymore. Happy days although begs the question what are the original one from?

Re: Forks knocking at full extension/rebound

Got the forks disassembled and now a bit confused! The first pic is of complete fork parts. The second of the damper ass that was in them. They look very lightweight for a 900. So don't think they are the correct ones. Had a route in the parts bin and came up with some that look much more like the c...

Re: Forks knocking at full extension/rebound

Quick thought, is it better to fill the oil with the forks fully compressed, ie wheel on the ground or fully extended ie wheel off the ground. Or does it not matter? Thinking about expelling any trapped air?

Re: Forks knocking at full extension/rebound

It could be the order of assembly. J forks (similar) are very easy to get the 'top out spring' in the wrong place and have it mashed to bits by the bottom of the fork inner stantion. AL Assemble as per the parts list diagram. Guess Im just going to have to strip them again but unless I find somethi...

No not head adjustment. Im sure its something to do with the fork internals, like an air lock or the return valves not operating as they should. Could be not enough oil but they have 170ml as per the service manual but that doesn't sound like a lot?
