What is the spark plug gap for my 1987 suzuki 700

Spark plug gap is something that people will have different opinions, set them as per the manual. If you are buying new ones, they should be set as per the manufacturers specification and should not need adjustment. Never bang the plug against something to change the gap, adjust with some sort of lever. Plugs tend to fracture when hit hard enough and you might never know until it doesn't work.
