  1. GT380 starts easy after a year

    Vintage Forum
    Uploaded with ImageShack.us As I mentioned, this started up easily after a year. I brought a lot of tools. I expected at minimum to need to clean plugs. I needed to do nothing, although I will review everything before I ride it properly. The leak is a bit of red herring. The tap or petcock...
  2. GT380. But where does this hose go?

    Motorcycle Repair
    I recently bought a 1977 GT380, and it wasn't running great so I took apart the carburetor and cleaned it. I put the carb back in, but now I can't remember where all of the hoses went to. I have included a photograph. The tube that is it question is the one that is coming from the left side...

    First Bike / New Rider
    I'm brand new to motorcycling and purchased my first bike last week, a 1976 Suzuki GT380. She needs a little bit of work, but she runs. A friend of mine, who is a car mechanice and motorcyclist, is planning to help me clean her up and get her performing a bit better. I'm dreaming of turning her...

    I am brand new to motorcycling and last week picked up my first bike, a 1976 Suzuki GT380. She's going to be a project. I have plans to fix the bike up and hopefully get on the road soon. Aside from my slowly developing interest in motorcycling, I'm also a bicycle enthusiast and illustrator.
