Introduced in 1971, the GT750 soon developed a cult following which still exists today, with various owners’ clubs still celebrating the water-cooled two-stroke triple, affectionately known as the ‘Kettle’ or ‘Water Buffalo’ in the States.
Suzuki’s Vintage Parts Programme was launched at last year’s Motorcycle Live with the popular RGV250, making restoring and maintaining classic machines from Suzuki’s history even easier, by listing every genuine part still available from the factory online. Every part has also been individually photographed, too.
With a bespoke area of the Suzuki website dedicated to the programme, owners can source and buy available parts and share images of their bikes with other users. Also available online to download are parts catalogues and service manuals, as well as factory action images, brochures and road tests from the time. Suzuki GB aftersales coordinator Tim Davies said: “We’ve been working hard to be able to add the GT750 to the programme, and we’re delighted to be able to announce its inclusion. There is a real interest in classic and vintage machines at the moment, and the Vintage Parts Programme makes restoring, maintaining and owning a classic Suzuki even easier and more rewarding. We launched it with the RGV250 which was very well received and we’re now very excited to add the iconic GT750. We’ll be adding even more models shortly, including the GSX-R750 F-H models, the GT250 X7 and the AP50, with even more in the pipeline.”Enjoy more Classic Motorcycle Mechanics reading in the monthly magazine.
