There are many websites on the Internet that cater to the motorcyclist, but
there is also a lot of garbage out there too. The intention here is to list some
of the most popular websites that GSR members find useful in repairing and
maintaining their bikes. Hopefully, this will save you some time when it comes
time to hunt down parts or information.
Give us a hand! If you have found a website that was useful to you then be sure to let me (Frank) know
so I can add it to this page. Go to the link here

This website is run by Cliff Saunders, also known in the forum as BassCliff,
and on his website as BikeCliff. Why? Because he plays bass guitar for the
Kelly Rae Band. He is heck of a nice guy who is also a fellow geek and spends
time (when he can find it) working on his own GS850.
His website is what is often considered to be an extension to
TGSR website in that it contains all
sorts of useful information for maintaining a GS. There are
Owners Manuals and Service Manuals there also. Make this the first place that you check,
after you are done perusing TGSR website
They carry a pretty good selection of both Haynes and Clymer manuals for
the GS's. The are also one of the largest online motorcycle stores on the Internet.
They don't have a large selection of repair manuals for the GS. As of 7/13/15
they only had the service manual for 1979-82 GS750. What they do have is microfiche
for most bikes. At $5 a piece they are a bargain. They are very useful for
see the parts of your bike in detail. Remember microfiche is small, so you
need a way to blow up the images to see them.
They carry both Haynes and Clymer manuals for the GS's. They are also another
large online motorcycle store. And if you don't want to deal with microfiche
you can enter your model and year to search and display parts online.
The Manual Store
The name of this site is pretty explanatory - they sell manuals for everything,
including Suzuki GS's. Manuals are provided in paper and some are available
via electronic means.
O-Ring Kits for Mikuni carbs
Robert Barr, a TGSR forum member, has helped the GS community in putting
together O-Ring kits for GS carbs. I can tell you that carb O-Rings are EXTREMELY
hard to find. He has gone and put together kits to make the whole process a one
stop shop for carb O-Rings.
Be sure to order yourself a kit, especially if you
plan on following the Carb Cleanup Series which is located in our Technical section
The GS Valve Shim Club
Ray Luthye, another longtime TGSR forum member, runs a valve shim exchange in
the forum. This is a good faith service in which you trade shims vs. buying them.
Contact Ray via forum Private Messages if you are interested in using this service.
This is mentioned because you cannot post directly to Ray's thread in the forum.
Please consider supporting this project by either contributing shims or money.
This is a very important service provided to GS owner.
One of the largest online motorcycle stores on the Internet. They sell Suzuki
parts and aftermarket parts for GS's.
Another large Internet store that sells both Suzuki parts and aftermarket
parts for GS's.
MAC Products Inc.
MAC sells exhausts for most vintage GS models. I have purchased them
and they are made of very high quality and are often very affordable.
