Steve in Missouri USA Been a great bike the SUZUKI GN400. Bought it from the local Honda dealer, used, for $250.00US. Only has about 6500 miles on it. I added drag bars, tuned up, lowered fork tubes, etc. Been a great bike, possibly one of my all time favorites. These are really good bikes, have a lot of character (how many bikes these days have a ritual just to start them ?) and are a blast, overall. I do not ride at night, so the electrics are of little concern. I hear they are not so hot, but the rest of the bike makes up for it.
PIC 19
Jon Kusler, WA, USA (3krauts @ 1981 GN400L model has 10,000 miles on it total and I get approx 65mpg. Got the tank and sidecovers done over in gloss black. I cheated on the cases and forks with Yamaha engine case paint. I totally enjoy riding the little GN400 on back roads and it gets alot of looks as there isn't hardly any single cylinder road bikes on the road today.

Jan Keevel After about 20 years without a bike (and drowling all over the place) I bought this bike - wonderful to be back on two wheels again - may be not as imppressive as my former Laverda, but at least as much fun - Born To Be Wild (again) - I try to share my affection for and my knowledge of my bike on my homepage:
PIC 259
Bob It runs and drives but runs poorly and lacks power. It may just be a dirty carb but I'm not sure. The history of the bike is unknown. Main, USA.
PIC 343
Keith Rogers My 1982 GN400T bought as a second bike for riding the country lanes of England. With just 20,000 miles on the clock it is almost all original except for the Gold star silencer (the genuine one now no longer available) I also fitted straight bars and replaced a few other parts to bring it up to first class order. My other bike is a Ducati 996 but i still really enjoy riding this machine
PIC 346
Scott Saunders Binghamton, NY, USA. Only modifications are an 18 tooth countershaft sprocket (instead of 16) and fork proctectors. Will carry my wife and myself 65 mph (105 kph) on the interstate. Fast enough for the east coast in the USA.

David Mandl Bought this bike for 700$ from a friend and it only had 2200km on it. It is my first bike and I've driven it for about 4 months now and I love it. Almost 5000km on her now and it runs perfectly. Cheap on gas (250km to reserve) and cheap to insure. I'll never sell this bike. What a steal of a deal...Any questions about it write to me at: make sure you put a subject line that says GN400 or I might not get it...Cheers
PIC 527
Russell Parker I see the GN 400 a little differently from most. Insurance rates here favour the 400cc class, and I wanted a single, but not a cruiser-type, so I added a Honda SS tank, a pair of drag bars, a drilled disc and muffler extension and made some stainless sidecovers, and my wife helped me build the seat. Fun. Canada

Stuart UK England I just bought this GN400 off eBay last weekend (Jan 05). It's a bit tatty but sounds great! Can't wait for better weather to get it cleaned up, serviced and get back on the road.

Pieter Tudts This is my Gn witch I bought allmost for free. I regred the previous owner did not seem to like the original look that much, but it's still a lott of fun to take a short trip with. I hope to be able to give it his original look back.
PIC 615
Mick Pearce I Bought the bike in Germany for 170 (equiv)back in 2000. Imported it back to the UK in 2001 and glad I did. Mo longer my first bike but a good ride none-the-less. Cheap to run and always starts from cold, warm starts are a bit more fun!!!. Electrics ok, I've removed the indicators, headlamp ok for the speed (cruise at 60-70 mph easy)but love the red glow of the clocks at night.

Mike Ryman This is the culmination of 15 years of searching. My 1981 gn400. I had a 1980 gn400, my first bike. I LOVED it! To make a long story short, my brother took it, sold it, and shot the $ up his arms. After 15 years, I have finally replaced it. After 3 months of work, it's up and running, and once again, I LOVE IT!

noggin the chef in bournemouth hi there just bought this y reg(1983) GN 400 from my local adtrader for a measly 100 (Aug 07)Although it haas no MoT or tax it runs well and I think with only a few quid throwing at it, it should be fine.
All it needs is a new battery tacho cable and air filter (already bought a front wheel for it off ebay complete with decent tyre and disc all in for 30, which is a lot cheaper than a new tyre on its own.)
Who says biking has to be expensive!?!

suzukijo i had started this project a few years back, and its just been sitting. DR400 swingarm, GR650 front end, GS400 gastank, GS500 seat. I am not sure how it will end up, but i have interest to finally finish it, thanks to all of you for inspiration, with your bikes.
i would like to have the long tapered muffler, and rear sets, not sure about tail section, may use GS500 frame panels, or go with the empty naked look thru the middle.
PIC 877
Greg Jameson Its been 15 years since I last had a GN and so I bought this one last week. Hasnt been running since 1994 so needs a fair bit of work but its only done 6000 miles. The carb is a mess but I did have it 'chuffing' for maybe 10 seconds yesterday and the engine sounded great so I think its a good buy.

Andy VH This is my ice bike, a 1980 GN400 that has been converted for ice racing. I bought it from a friend. I did fab my own hanger for the SuperTrapp muffler and revised the intake. Did a bit of head work, and I will be re-jetting the carb for more power. All the street parts have been stripped off to save weight so the bike is now under 300 pounds. Right now it will not start (kick only) which I suspect is a timing issue since I do know it ran before. Compression is very good, as is spark and fuel. Looking forward to some winter fun here in Wisconsin!

Mick I picked up this running bike for $185 bucks. It leaked gas on me all the way home. The next day i ripped it apart, Cut the swing arm and added in 6". and here's where I'm at with it. I have put $500 bucks in to parts. Ebay is awesome for cheep parts. I wish i could post more than one pic.
PIC 926
Mick Did more work yesterday. I wanted more of a hard tail look so I made the bottom fork kick stand part of the frame. I think it looks cool. My plan is to sell the bike so I'm going to keep it a two seater. I'll make a little bitch pad on the back fender. I'll add more pics as I go.
Oh the pic posted by Laimis I love that back tire where did you get it? You have no e-mail posted

Mick Just an update made the seat pan. it looks a little rough.I bent it up using a vice so there are ridges. I will use a little padding and some leather to cover it up with. After mounting the seat, i decided it had to have forward controllers. I've started cutting them out. Hopefully I will have them done this week.

Mick Oh ya, The forward controls coast me about $30.00 usd to make. I used some stander ed plumbing pipe. the same 1" I used on the frame and like 6 inches of the next size up. I used 3/8" for the plate steel.If anyone wants to know more about how to make some. you can e-mail me.I did a lot of looking and there's not much out there on how to make your own. Mine are supper solid and work great. you will need a welder, Chop saw, Grinder, And a drill.

Putney I bought this 1981 GN400TX in Fort Kent, Maine for $100. Starts and idles good until the gas in the carb burns up, but the carb will drain if gas is flowing in form the tank. I got a new float, but it's gettin' cold and the garage isn't heated, so I think I'm gonna drain the gas and leave it for the spring. Sorry about the cut-off pic, I couldn't get a good angle in the garage.

Joe Kinsella First bike! Love it! Removed dented front fender, installed powder coated drag bars, chopped 7-8" off the exaust at a slant painted it black and wrapped the header tube. Sounds loud and mean. Painted front forks black. Next up: seat and rear fender. My lights are pretty dim too, any good solutions? Also, I'd like some shorter cables, throttle, clutch, front brake line. Any smaller bikes cables compatible? Like a dr80?

Ian Flanders I have pushed this bike close to 7000 rpm on the motorway and estimate the speed to be about 75-80 mph.It was a windy day and it felt more like I was riding a kite.Maybe with a little more weight loss and a down hill slope it could break the 100 mph mark !
