I've recently bought a 1996 Suzuki GSX-F 600. She's a lovely little teapot, very proud :biggrin:


I'm trying to get a restrictor kit fitted onto her as I've only recently passed my A2! I've got a friend who's given me the restrictor kit from his old GSX-F.

I've rung a garage trying to get a quote to get it fitted on, however the garage say that it needs to be a new restrictor fitted as there's a database where the restrictor is paired with the bike. They also went on about the certificate but I've read MCNs article about the 33bhp certificate rip-off so I'm aware of it.

Does anyone know where I stand?

never heard of that, a got some restrictors off a friend for her cbr as she had also passed with a restricted test. no probs whatsover.

who did you ring? main dealer? independant? i'd get a second opinion on that.

would'nt be george white would it?? can't stand them(well the swindon branch)

or phone suzuki uk, there is also other areas of this forum that you could post this on.

all the best anyway.

Spin = Lying

Some dealer is selling you total spin (ie bullsh*tting you). Any database has absolutely NO legal standing in the UK (full stop). Dealers know this but some like to manipulate the legislation for their own ends.

I have recently done that.

I just bought a new kit to save the hassle. It is fine if the bike comes with one and a garage refits it. Eeryone has a different view. I think there should be some clear guide lines on it. The restrictor kit for the bandit kit should work on your gsx aswell - same engine. I found the Riders in Bristol (upmarket Harley and Ducati dealer near me) was surprisingly the cheapest.

Don't know how they pair the restrictors to the bike. There is a certificate specifically for your machine but the only markings on the actuall slides are just a product referance number and not a serial number. No corresponding markings on the certificate.

£180 for a new kit! Four metal discs with a samll hole in them! Mine accidentally fell out in the end but you deffinatley need the certificate!

Keep me posted man!:sunglasses:

I put a reply

on your thread in the other section, so not going to type it all out here.

There is no "restrictor paired with the bike" - this is BS to my knowledge.
 There's loads on fleabay.

Check the other thread (Tech?) for the rest of the reply.

Hope that helps.
