When Suzuki got round to building a four-stroke they did a very good job of it. Its GS fours were built in 550, 650, 750, 850, 1000 and 1100 cc sizes in sports, custom, roadster and even shaft-driven touring forms over many years. The GS1000 was in on the start of Superbike racing in the early 1970s and the GS850 shaft-driven tourer was around nearly 15 years later. The fours spawned a line of 400, 425, 450 and 500 cc GS twins that were essentially the middle half of the four with all their reliability.
Having developed a winning formula with the first Bandit models, there was really no requirement to modify the models and they stayed largely unchanged for several years. For the 2000 model year Suzuki gave the 600 models a make-over which included a new fairing with twin headlights on the S model and a host of detail improvements on both versions. The 1200 models received the same changes for the following model year. Further improvements were made in 2005 with the introduction of the GSF650, again with bodywork changes, and also the option of ABS. The GSF1200 benefitted from the same changes the following year.
Our Suzuki GSF600, 650 & 1200 Bandit Fours manual will help you keep your Suzuki motorcycle in tip top shape.
