    Default Suzuki Gs500e (Haroon_1)

    Assalamoaliakum to all my fellows,

    This is my first bike, not first but before this i never owned anything other than a cg125.

    This is a Suzuki Gs500e 2004 model, 2011 motorway auction and Islamabad registered.

    The bike is in pretty nice condition body wise no rust etc. Body was repainted in black, frame was also repainted as far as in my sight.

    The engine was in genuine condition till yesterday, when i bought the crank was knocking, i decided to get it overhauled in extreme cold weather but after that i realized that it will somehow damage the crank.

    If now the work will be done by just 0.25 main beggins it may increase to 0.50. So gave it to mechanic by morning.

    The work to be done are as follows:

    Crank overhaul
    rings
    valves
    guides
    clutch plates

    one shock seal was leaking it will be replaced also

    After a lot of search i found ustad bashir in pindi a good guy, planned to send it to pindi, he gave me estimate of 50k for this work.

    Then after discussion with my few friends i decided to give to Haji noor Muhammad, A well know specialist of suzuki in Lahore, He finalized this work in 35k

    Now the bike is under major surgeries, hope it will be fine InshAllah.

    Here are the pics for u guys, will update the engine work step by step InshAllah.

    JazakAllah

    Today i got my bike from mechanic, the engine is running smooth though dere is a sharp noise from tappets, mechanic say will go after few kilometers. I believe so because the engine always little over heats after engine overhaul here is the same case also

    Tappet sound is typical for so many Suzuki bikes, it doesn't bother me at all, I call it music

    actually when an engine overheats, it will start knocking or tappets sounds etc
    and when an engine is overhauled it will get over heated for few kilometers, once the valves and guides settle down and engine comes to its normal temperature everything goes fine, there is nothing to worry and the engine is flawless

    Congrats on your purchase and a successful transplant surgery, just keep your hand little low on accelerator till the first adjustment of the tappets.

    @MONOO
    I believe tappet sound will be there in any GS500 engine, it might vary in an engine in good condition from an engine in bad condition but will be there to some extent.
    Some years ago I thought it was a fault until I heard a shiny S40 whose engine made similar meagre tappet sound, since then I started calling it the Suzuki music

    Mine is Alhamdulillah perfectly fine now.
    As ustad said
    jo kam haji noor karta hai koi kar nae sakta, somehow he is right because he did everything with lots of responsibility.

    Tappet noise was half gone half left, bike clocked 134km after overhaul. I think it will become much more smooth after 500kms.

    Last day i also pushed it a little, the throttle is very much responsive, did almost 165 in 5th gear but no more as dere was a curve ahead on road. I was not wearing any helmet or glasses at that time, so watery eyes didnt allowed me to do more.

    I refilled it with 1000 rs hi octane, driven 134 still its having a lot of fuel in tank.

    It clocked almost 450km after overhaul, tomorrow InshAllah i will go for an oil change and tuning from Ustad the famous and great Haji noor. haha
    Today I finally, with a big n brave heart planned to check the bikes ability, Touched Almost 185km/hr. The bike is very very smooth now. Hope the tappet noise will be cleared by tomorrow.
