Suzuki GSX-S Transmission

Suzuki GSX-S Transmission

Suzuki are well known for the quality of their gearboxes and the Suzuki GSX-S Transmission is no exception, smooth with a very robust gear change mechanism, they stand up extremely well to abuse.

I’ve mad a few modifications to the Suzuki GSX-S Transmission:

Gearing or Chain & Sprockets  Changing the gearing can have a huge effect on your bikes performance.

Chain Adjusters  Aftermarket chain adjusters make it much easier to a) adjust the chain tension and b) ensure that the chain stays aligned correctly.

GSXS Shift light  The GSX-S engine revs extremely quickly and pulls through to the redline, always useful to have a shift light so you don’t have to concentrate on the dash when riding hard.

GSXS Quick shift using Woolich Racing Racetools, I love the feeling of a quickshift, keeping the throttle pinned open with a wailing exhaust whilst you change up through the gears

The 2017 onwards GSXS1000 came with a slip and assist clutch, this allows some slip when changing down gears to prevent the rear wheel from locking as well as a lighter clutch lever.  The slip and assist clutch works by using cams, as the bike accelerates the cams force the clutch plates together – this allows the clutch to use lighter springs thus a lighter clutch lever. On deceleration the same cams force the clutch plates apart allowing some slip

It should be possible to retrofit to the older GSXS1000s
