    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

    Basheer may be a good mechanic, maybe even better than Haji Noor but he is a complete failure when it comes to sourcing spares, which is of pivotal importance in restoring these bikes.

    Haji's work is not flawless. My experience with Haji is that he is good at judging where the fault lies when you report him an issue but sometimes he overlooks some minute things. I own two GS, both were restored by him and in both the cases I had to make several trips to his workshop for getting checked those minor things. Restoring a bike is one painful process and getting post-restoration adjustments is even more of a nuisance but you can only ride with peace of mind once everything is working flawless.
    My suggestion to you is that you ride your bike for a few days and notice all the things that need his touch then take the bike to him repeatedly unless that problem is resolved, and don't mind his language he was grown up like that We don't have gentlemen in this business yet

    yes, i m feeling a bit power loss, i think the valve clearance is not so good. The bike is a soundless as c cd70 but rough idling and bike not remain start on idle at 1000 rpm. As earlier it was smooth on idle at 1000 rpm, i thonk i should visit him again, and say to adjust them on previous setting, as he adjusted some coin type thin metal sheet under the cups of two front tappets. I will ride again in evening for my satisfaction. If its not good as before then i must have to visit him again.

    My bike is actually restored by previous owners, i only overhauled the engine, so other things of the bike were already in fine condition. Bike is absolutely trouble free except this valve clearance issue.

    I will decide in evening that dere is need to go to him again or not.

    Actually i m fed up of his nonsense attitude. I always control my self dere, so its better that i visit him as less as possible

Restoring a bike to perfection is hell of a job, Monoo can tell you that, but in the end the final product is worth all that wait.

    Bro we always do such things by own, like the paint job, take the tank tails frame etc to your own painter he do the job in days. I challenge you that the painter i know, he will do all the paint job of GS in less than 5 days, else week for an engine overhaul, week for sourcing of parts, and a week for assembling, A month is a lot of time

    that mechanic is not that goof, and stock engine, any engine with good health, has no tappet sounds unless the cams or cups are weak. If the tappets are enough tighten to damage the valve, dere is always a knocking sound on high revs, which is definately more than the tappets clicking.

    Just back after a ride on my gs, as weather is good here. Revd it to almost red lines till 4th gear, bike is almost in the same power as it before, just need a good warm up. After a hot engine, the performance is the same, goes 0-100 in 5 seconds checked on my stop watch. So i think dere is no need to re adjust the tappets, will go to haji for a check just on safe side
