Won't shift into third gear

The bike has a bent shift fork. The repair is not recommended for the home mechanic. Some special tools are needed and finding parts for a 28 year old bike may be a problem. Sorry.

Does the 1983 suzuki gs550L have an oil filter

Yes , there is a cartridge style oil filter under a round cover in the front of the machine. There are three dome nuts with sealing washers that hold the cover on. The spring goes against the front cover to push the filter into the motor. Be sure to replace the o-ring on the cover so you do not create new leaks.

Weaping fork seals.

a trace is normal, to much is not. that probable is due to dryed out fork seal, as they ere not getting lubed due to inactivity. the air fittings are for ajustable damping. if you ride 2 up or yourself being heavy or you just want a firmer fork suspension. i don;t know the range for your bike. try asking the dealer.or just put in 5 lbs. and try. if the presure doesn't last then you have leaky seals......

you should put in new fork seals before adding oil -leaking fork seals should be repaired as oil can get on the front brake pads--buy a clymer manual and you can change them yourself
