    It is a triple and where the points are there are marks that are vertical lines next to the C and R and L that can be seen as i rotate the nut counter clockwise. they are seen thru a cit out slot. ???

    P.S. I set the points at .012 after rotating counterclockwise until each set was at the widest open gap???

    is that the twin or tripple cly?



    Does it have timming marks on the rotor?



    if it has marks its easly done with a light and a battery.



    Let me know what type it is I cant find it in my ref. I can obtain one from suzuki.

Send me your e mail address to jonathangreen123@btinternet.com I wrote an essay on how to solve your problem and ran into trouble getting this site to accept it. I'll tell you all you need to know. For goodness sake don't give the engine the slightest bit of throttle abuse until you have set the timing correctly. If you do, you run the risk of holing a piston.

Suzuki 380 gt not running after choke turned off


The engine was running with the choke pulled and when closed there is no fuel supply to the engine probably due to a faulty setting. It is possible that there is a fuel block and so the carb needs a clean up and reset.
remove the filter and check the fuel jets.

I have a 1976 Suzuki GT 750 LeMans that I am restoring, I'm having trouble location a manual and need to know what to gap the points and valves at. I have found a manual finally but can't wait for it to...


just to get it started?? i would set the points at half the plug gap, about 14 to 17 thou, intake valves at 14 and exhaust at 17, these are rough figures, once the engine is hot if the valves are noisy, wait for engine to cool and reduce gap 1 or 2 thou and try again, these are just numbers i would use when in need, good luck

Suzuki GT380 coils hot


Hi. I had a similar problem on an old Suzuki GS550. It use to start and run for a set time and then cut out and would not start until it cooled down for about 4/5 minuets. Then it would start and do the same, and the coils seemed to get quite hot. In my case it was the rectifier. Hope this is of help to you. Regards Tony.
