1980 Suzuki GT 200 X 5 E review
2 stroke, 2 cylinder.Owned 1 for 25 years.
Review of the GT 200 X 5 E submitted on 2004-11-11.
The X5 is light and nimble,has electronic ignition (no points),and spares such as chains,tyres etc. are cheap and easy to get.However donīt go to your local Suzuki dealer and expect to buy, say, a speedo,wheel or an exhaust.The best option is to buy a scrapper. Iīve bought a few in the past,and Iīm still using them,but I only do about 4000 miles a year,and although Iīve had one bike for 25 years itīs only done about 80,000 miles.They donīt do much to the gallon about 45ish,and about 90miles to a tankful.For years I used Michelin M38 tyres which were excellent,but cannot get them now so Iīve settled for Metzeler ME22īs,theīre not as good as the Mitchelinīs but the best iīve tried since.Thereīs nothing that needs modding. If you buy one as they are reliable,but being a 2 stroke you must remember to fill the 2stroke oil tank every week or so.Maybe the one unusual thing about them nowdays is that the mag wheels have tubes in them,this is standard.
