I had the same problem with my /93 750. I ran my bike into the Suzuki dealer and got my valves adjusted... problem solved!

Just got one off the break-in !!

A 1989 750k with 7810 on the clock when I bought
and began resurrecting it from severe hibernation sickness.
Runs and drives great after all new rubber pieces and a swim
or two in Berryman's n' Seafoam.

I like to ride fast-ish but don't beat up bikes so total miles
will be hopefully high as I do 3-6k miles per season and stay
in the bottom 2/3 of the tachometer. (This makes the "detuned"
Kat the perfect ride for me!) Lotsa good stuff going on from 5-9,000 rpms.

600 ended it's run at 130k when it was taken out by a car.

98 750 - bought a month ago with 20480 on it, up to 20800 with most major issues worked out. Should be getting 8k a year, shorter commute now.

Saw this old thread, and it made me wonder, is there any way to tell how many miles are on my bike... if the odometer is gone, lol?

2005 600 Katana bought new then, have driven it almost daily since

No odometer, no way to tell.
