Default 1985 Suzuki GSX700ES - $2000

Category: Motorcycle
Status: Clean Title

I have a 1985 Suzuki GSX700ES for sale, in USA - Oregon.

Mileage: ~30,000 miles
Engine Size: 699

Asking price is $2000

More of a feeler than anything. I really don't have much time to tinker with this, and the joy is kinda/sorta gone. I love this bike, it's been with me for years, but it might be time to let it go to the right buyer.

LOTS of parts replaced/upgraded/updated. Including wheels, tires, forks, brakes, gauges, lights, handlebars, shock, battery, electronics, etc.

Everything's painted flat black because I like the look and it's an enamel, so it holds up. Everything's good except:

1. Stator. Needs to be replaced, for $150. Works fine, but you need to hook it up to a trickle charger if you don't ride for more than a week or two, hardly noticeable honestly.

2. It's over heating a bit. I believe it needs bigger jets to run a little richer, but I'm not terribly interested in messing with it more. Runs fine as is, oil temperature hovers at 250* though after 10 minutes of riding.

3. It's always been a bit of a troublesome starter without the stock airbox, but I also haven't synchronized the carbs, which I know it needs. If you know the right technique it starts great though, just have to be familiar with multi-carb'ed engines.

That's about all the major stuff. Everything is stainless steel hardware, engine's been gone through with a few new gaskets and rings, carbs recently cleaned, seat reupholstered, wiring harness is a brand new OEM unit as of ~3 years ago, frame, all brackets, and swingarm was powder coated shiny black ~2 years ago, K&N filters, yoshi exhaust, early '90's GSXR rear wheel, R1 shock, early '90's Katana 600 front end (wheel, calipers, brakes, master cylinder, gauges), SS lines front and back, new battery, starter solenoid, Honda RR, new oil lines. And that's enough off the top of my head for now.

I'm not sure where the overheating is coming from to tell the truth, carbs were cleaned and rebuilt and at the same time an autometer oil temp gauge was added to replace the stock one which didn't work and was later removed when Katana gauges were installed.

Will deliver within ~100 miles of 97045. No test rides without cash in my hand, endorsement, and your own helmet.

PM me here with questions.

Thanks for looking

Also took out the part about it overheating, apparently if you don't have the ground wire on an Autometer oil temperature gauge, it acts fairly normal, except for the part where it pegs after 10 minutes of use. Oil temps now hover around 180* after some abusive riding.

At least it was an easy fix, albeit stupid on my part.
