Why don't you ask Suzuki. They are always helpful. Fowlers are the best place to start. They can also get any replacement parts you need.

SOURCE: how do you set the points on a 1978 gs 750 suzuki

Two types of points were used on that bike. The ND system (condensers one on top of another) and the KOKUSAN system ( condensers left and right side by side). When ordering parts it will be important to know which system you have. All but one model use the ND system so I will assume you have the ND system.
Go to the site below where you can see a parts diagram for your specific bike. You will select the actual brand, year, model, etc., once you go to the site. Part numbers and prices are also shown. You can order parts from this site.
www.babbittsonline.com/pages/parts/viewbybrandand/parts.aspx

SKU: 31440-36210
POINT ASSY, CONTACT LH B,C&EC,N&EN

SKU: 33172-36210
POINT ASSY, CONTACT RH B,C&EC,N&EN

I could describe how to set the points and timing but it would be better if you had a factory service manual with photos and diagrams. Go to this site and you can download a free PDF service manual.
http://www.carlsalter.com/motorcycle-manuals.asp
It is a 86meg file. It took me about 8 minutes to download. The manual is actually for a 1976 bike but the timing and 95% of all else is the same for the 1998 bike. You now have more information on your bike than you will likely ever need. I suggest you take the file to Kinkos or a similar store and get a two sided printout of the file, 186 pages, 93 sheets. Have them 3 hole drill the sheets and then you can put the sheets in a 3 ring binder for easy reference.

Please consider a top rating on this solution. Thanks

the paint codes are available in the parts list for your bike. The parts list is available many places on line. Finding the paint is more difficult, one source is Colorrite.

If i were you i would not do this mod. You are going to end up with a ugly top triple tree. Rather find a lower set of bars off another bike. They are all the same diameter tubing.

Hi and welcome to FixYa,

To my understanding, an air leak would be anywhere before the carbs; the air box  cover, the the 4 coupling rubber tubes or even the air filter itself.  Although an air leak in any of these areas would not cause an intermittent high idle. Air leak here would cause a lean mix and/or a flat spot while accelerating.  

On the other hand, a vacuum leak could cause high idle. Vacuum leak would be after the carbs and on any of the coupling to the intake ports of the engine or how they are fitted. In some versions, there are balancer nipples that have interconnecting rubber hoses and/or a vacuum line to the fuel cut-off valve that couls also have a hole or tear. It must be noted that the high idle because of a vacuum leak is consistent.

Intermittent high idle would often be mechanical or almost always on the throttle system. Common causes are:

  • corroded, dirty, unlubricated, throttle mechanism or cable or linkages;
  • pinched, kinked or sharp bended cable housing;
  • forced or irregular routing of the cable;
  • it must also be pointed that sticking sliders (inside the carbs) can cause irregular (high) idle.
Good luck and thank you for asking FixYa.

SOURCE: fuel diagram

4 small tubes from the bottom of the float bowls, are drain hoses and should be routed between the rear of the engine and the frame.
the 4 small upper hoses are vapor relief hoses and should be routed under the airbox.
The final larger hose or hoses depending on tank are fuel inlet hoses and will connect to the fuel petcock on the Gas Tank

1978 Suzuki GS 1000, need manual would like to download it, anyone have anything free


The best I can offer is a 1980 GS1000. Ninety eight percent of the 1980 manual applies to your 1978 bike. The biggest differences are in fenders, gas tank, decals, trim and seat designs. Go to the site below for a free download. www.carlsalter.com/motorcycle-manuals.asp

Paint code / colour matching


The Hona code for the paint should be on a sticker on the frame under the seat. A good paint shop should be able to mix the paint from this code.
