Default Engine Code Decyphering

Ya know.

Those numbers on the side of the engine. There has to be a way to decypher what they mean!

Like, in my case, I thought I was buying a 1990 GSXR engine, and based on the spark plug type, that might be the case - but the signal generator says its a 1986 or 87!!!

The only topic worth reading on here, after several search strings is:

Anyone have the key to this lock?

I found this at Gixxer.com: http://www.gixxer.com/ubbthreads/sho...ue#Post1635438
which points to a German PDF file:

Now, gixxer.com guys says in the thread that the pdf has errors, but I wonder how many.....

It took a while - reading german, when you dont know how takes alot of time with a translating dictionary.

Basically, page 2 and on are all the makes and models of bikes that suzuki made. From there, you can use the PDF find feature to locate your particular engine code.

From this thread we find a provided engine code of:N721-114885
which, when the database is compared, is an engine from a GSF600S, aged 2000-2004 model, or so it would seem, if the database is correct. I kinda wish it was more year specific.
