1983 Suzuki GR650 Tempter from United States of America


Looks like a Triumph. Drives like on/off


Rough running.

Carbs plugged up from sitting 20 years.

Exhaust valves too tight.

At 5500 I don't think the valves were ever adjusted/set to factory spec.

Seat is a bit rough, but usable.

Battery weak; loses charge. Easily replaced with a newer type sealed battery. Now much better; starts very good. New style battery is a glass mat style.

General Comments:

This bike is very light and has very compliant suspension on bumps. Rear suspension is very smooth. I ride this bike on dirt trails.

Would you buy another motorcycle from this manufacturer? Yes
