Suzuki GS500E (K to Y) (1989 - 2000)

If ever there was a bike bred to be a workhorse it’s the GS500E. Its ancestry can be traced right back to the first generation of air-cooled GS motors, Suzuki’s first four strokes incidentally. Those 550, 750 and 1000 cc fours gave rise to a 400 cc twin which grew over the years to 425 cc. Just like the fours, this twin used a roller-bearing bottom end and was considered unburstable. In 1985 the motor was bored out again, this time to 450 cc, but more significantly it got a plain bearing bottom end, bringing it into line with industry practice. At Haynes, we have an extensive range of Suzuki repair manuals and online maintenance procedures available for professional mechanics and DIY car enthusiasts.
