Description

Additional photos of this 1983 Suzuki GS1100ES are available here for your perusal.

In years prior, the GS series was designed to be an all-around standard. In 1982, Suzuki broke up the biggest GS with different models like the E and the G.

The G became a lazy man’s tourer, which freed the E from its constraints. It evolved into king of the dragstrip. The engine got some extra work, and cosmetics were slightly tweaked, leading to a bike more similar to the early Katana’s, and an engine that produced over 100 horsepower and nearly 70 foot-pounds of torque. For 1982, the ES gained a set of anti-dive Showa forks.

This example is VIN: JS1GU73A8D2105616, Engine #: GS110X166462 . The seller purchased it five months ago through an online auction.

During his ownership, the seller has ridden the bike for approximately 10 miles. The odometer shows 36,655 miles.

Maintenance:
The seller reports that he has replaced the stator and rectifier and also changed the oil. He notes that the “the engine is noisy at idle but it seems to ride fine (it was ridden to Iconic’s shop for the listing)” and that the “carb has to stay on PRI (Prime) for it to run, it does not run on ON so there’s presumably some sort of petcock issue.” Additionally, the “upper gauges do not work.”

We note that the idle noise disappears when the clutch is pulled in – our best guess is that the clutch basket needs to be replaced but we cannot confirm that as we have not

Modifications:
Per the seller, this GS1100ES appears to be completely stock.

Cosmetic Blemishes: please see the album up top for all known cosmetic blemishes. Here is a selection:






Inside of the tank:
