I had two of them, sold them at 40,00 miles each. At 10,00 each one of them had a broken wavewasher in the clutch chamber, completely disengaging the engine from the trans. Fix: one thrust washer in lieu of wave washer; one clutch cover gasket; one oil change. Take the clutch apart, remove ALL the broken washer pieces, reassemble using the new Thrust washer under the old; add oil and go. You will probably have to replace the exhaust system around 30 or 40,000 miles. Use stock stuff or you will have to play with the carb. I put 10,000 miles a year just going to work. The frame is the same as one of their dirt bikes, the DR- SR whatever. Mine was so comfortable on a courier job of 300 mile days, that I would leave the Kawa 440 twin at home. 90 MPH was enough to handle anything in Atlanta in the way of traffic. Gas: 70 MPG, handling great, smooth over bad county roads. Vibes, a massage at 55, 70 the least pulsation. I had GS 450 bars and a cafe fairing. Actually they were reduced to $995 a saving of $900 dollars. Miss those old dumping of bikes on the market days. Oh, yes, the swing arm bushes needed replacement fairly often; plastic you know. A good all purpose bike. Ed

Designed as an entry-level small displacement standard bike, the GN400X was a short-lived thumper in a world of big bore multi's. There always seems to be an "up and down" cycle regarding the desire for a single cylinder street cycle. One year they're hot and the next year they're not. It just happened that Suzuki introduced the GN at the wrong time. The engine isn't the strongest and it topped out at around 90 mph...But that is a good attribute for a beginner's bike. On the good side, the GN does have a stiff frame, sturdy suspension, and "dirt bike-like" lightweight...making it a very nimble bike. I'm taking mine and turning it into a cafe-style street racer...following the styling of Honda's GB500 with a solo seat, clubman bars, and a small fairing.
