Description

Please Note: This GSX-R400 starts and runs but it is being listed as a project as the carbs are leaking and it will need some additional work (detailed in the Maintenance section).

Additional photos are available here for your perusal.

The GSX-R 400 was originally launched in Japan in 1984 with the GK71 model, featuring a liquid-cooled inline four cylinder engine with DOHC, four valves per cylinder and close to 60 hp. Lighter than its rivals (under 350 lbs wet), the aluminum framed Suzuki became a hit with its excellent handling, more-than-adequate brakes, and a race-derived heritage. By the time the 1990 GK76 model was launched, the GSX-R 400 had been through several changes and the new double cradle aluminum frame that mimicked the larger 750 and 1100 models almost looked like a step back from the previous model’s (GK73) modern-looking twin spar frame but the GK76A came with huge improvements in new inverted front forks, better brakes, 17″ wheels front and rear, a new 4-1 exhaust, all new styling and an engine producing 59 hp at 14,500 RPM.

In 1990, Suzuki introduced an all-new GSX-R400 for the Japanese market with the code name GK76A. Fierce competition in the 400cc category amongst the Japanese manufactures was fueled by the restrictive riders licensing rules in Japan that favored smaller displacement bikes and the TT-F3 racing class that spurred continual development of the models from the big four Japanese builders.

The GK76A models also saw SP and SP-II versions released by Suzuki, while the base model continued unchanged until production ended in 1996.

This example is VIN: GK76A106934. It came to Iconic as an import from Japan; prior history is not known.

The odometer shows 32,527 kilometers (20,211 miles).
