I have to agree with what I seen in the first few pages here. It means "passing on the left at a high rate of fuel" Look out HD a real bike is passing you(lmfao) no pon intended.Anyway I have a 1992 Suzuki 1100 Katana.(Kan-ah-tuna)lol. Anyway I have recently just given my bike a make over with the engine.I put a 1349 stroker kit($649) with Flat side carb($300) & K&N filters($170)D&D show n go pipes 4 into 1($600).Less my time putting all together.Took me about 2 wknds to do.Talk about fast OMG 240 with race fuel & she still wanted to go!.She does about 225 with regular gas(high test)And beats a Busa with ease!.ha ha ha ha
My little baby is a Sv-1000N, and the more bikes I test for the newspaper, the more I like my Sv :-))
But, it does only put about 115 bhp to the back wheel and it is a naked bike, so I "only" got it up to 160 mph....
But on track days and afternoon blast's with wheelies every time I hit second gear, it's a Blast, and that is what Suzuki means to me :-)
I've got a 1984 Suzuki GSX550. Sadly it won't run properly, prone to flooding itself when I back off the throttle. Have cleaned the carbs and replaced needle jets. Can anyone shed some light on my poorly Suzuki?
it's my favorite brand of motorcycle, i read the company started out producing textile weaving looms and started making and racing bikes in the early 50's(first it was mopeds), i have a gsxr
1000k5 and it's one of the fastest things on the road(my opinion)
Dig everybody's thoughts on Suzuki.... Gotta Burgman 650. Looks like a giant sport bike, but its a SCOOTER. Got it more for quick in-town stuff and going to work. Rode it last year to Reno/Tahoe cruising at a comfy 100 mph thru the Sierra's. Did a ride thru Carson River Cyn w/ Harley friends and they were intrigue by it. I LOVE my HARLEY, but so many interesting motorcycles outhere that turn me on! hahaha, go figure...
It means I can't afford a Harley in Japanise, save your pennies, you'll get one someday, there's two kinds of people, those who ride Harleys and those who want to!
BEST MAKE THAT 3 TYPES & I'M DEF IN 3RD GROUP...THOSE WHO DON'T GIVE A F*CK BOUT HARLEYS

My first post on this site.
I've had loads of old Suzukis 125-750, all GS/GSX models.
As a complete mentalist I rebuild them.
Currently rebuilding a '80 GS450 from bits lying 'round the garage.
Got a 05' 600 with speedhealer installed. MY fastest recorded speed is 172 MPH. HI-PO's here have recorded 147 MPH on me...not good on the wallet. Not enough for me, so soon to be installing a modified turbo and shooting for 200 MPH...this time ON A TRACK!!
