A friend claims he saw the later six port top end adapted to this older engine for a 76/77 Pantera and it ran a solid 85mph on top after that. So, yeah, the older 4 port 500s have some potential. One mans junk is another man's Maserati.

i dont know if the bigger suzukis are like the smaller ones, but the 340s are even a fairly scary ride, much more than you would expect from a small engine like that. But when theyre being tempermental, theyre miserable little things to get running again...
