I think you mean a VS1400 or a VS1400GLP. I don't think there is a GSX1400. 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. In the event no price is shown on a particular part, the part is not in stock.

First, check and , if needed, change the spark plug(s), and oil. Always use the stock spark plug for your particular bike. Use 10w40 motor oil in the gear box. Don't use any synthetic oils, oil marked "EC", or oil with "special" additives. Change the oil filter if your bike has one. Changing the oil acts as the "filter" in bikes that don’t have an actual filter. Lubricate the chain. Lubricate the control cables with liquid graphite, ( Lock Eze ). Make sure the tires have adequate pressure. Check the spokes and snug up any that are lose. Aim the headlight and check all functions of the bike, kill switches, brakes, etc.

How about a top rating on this solution? Thanks!

Using to much oil on long trips 2004 gsx1400 suzuki

That is a lot of oil - is it blowing smoke? Is there any indication of where the oil is going?
The GSX engine is bulletproof - normally - and doesn't use much oil at all. I have serviced 35,000 mile bikes after 7500 miles and the oil has been spot on.
Looking on the net, it seems the 1400 is a bit vulnerable to oil-cooler damage. With an air/oil cooled bike this could be an indication of where the problem lies. The engine won't leak oil while stationary - well, maybe a drop... but when it is warm and under revs any hole in the oil cooler could be a direct exit point for oil. Look for stains on the exhaust headers - if you are driving and there is a leak, that'll be the first place the oil will go.
It would be the first place I would look - as well as oil cooler, pipes, connectors...
Run the bike for a while and try to inspect it to see if there are any leaks you can spot while the engine is running.
