Hi Eric, This is one item that i have not had to purchase so i do not know what the price is for a wiring loom. It does look a bit much and would you know what the average cost is.

Hi Nick, OEM SZ and SD wiring harness are no longer available from Suzuki. Webike Japan have replacement Kat harness listed today (8 Sep 2016) at US $339.50 plus postage. If you spend over the Webike cut-off amount they will post free. The price changes depending on the exchange rate of the day. It may or may not be the exact harness for an SZ/SD but with the clued up electric wizards we have here on the Forum that shouldn't be a showstopper.

Hi Nick, as Glen mentions, the Webike ones are available and with a bit of fettling are a good option if electrickery type stuff is not within ones capabilities.....(me for instance ;))

The other ones that pop up on ebay from time to time usually are showing their age and may not be much better, reliability wise, than what might be being replaced. I know that the last, very near mint, one I saw on Ebay went for $600, I stopped bidding at $580.

I'm with you Eric but it's intersting what games people will play to make a buck. I am also on the NSR250 forum (a bike who's maker will not be mentioned). There is a lot of discussion about the PGM computers that are on the bike and habe a habit of going phsst. I have three of them which I have bought off ebay at various times in recent histiry from between $100 and $200. And so this guy in Victoria pops up saying he can source them for $400...... Cheeky bugger!! But I guess as our bikes get older the partrs get rarer and more expensive. And the more peopel notice this the less likley theyt will be to sell what they don't need. Try buying stuff for a '70's or '80's Ducati if you want to see how exe it gets! Try $600 for a mirror if you can find one. I would suspect Kat parts are heading one way which a lot of our Kat betheren are going to dislike.......... Start hoarding!

Just look at Suzuki GS1000S mirrors: $45.00 list from Suzuki for the last sold by MH and now $1000 if you are lucky to find one.

For once it makes our "old mate" Simon at "ASIMCA" motorcycles seem 'FAIR and JUST"

I received a used oem complete headlight for my 650 yesterday from ASIMCA to replace the non oem suzuki part on my bike ............ and I also bought my blinkers from them sometime back. Both times the parts were excellent, complete and even the bulbs worked ........ just saying. And my offers were accepted. Here is a couple of pics of the headlight that i fitted this arvo ....... I tell a lie, the headlight outer rim is actually NOS from the the United Crates of Hysteria, but everything else is from ASIMCA

Parts which are in common with most other Suzuki models of the period ie round headlight and indicators, should not be overly expensive , and yes you would expect them to be in excellent condition.
Simons pricing on most parts is expensive, in particular on big kat prices sometimes way over new prices, most parts still available from Mick Hone. I don't know how he calculates his asking price, and yes he will often except a sensible offer as some of the boys here will vouch for.
Your GS650g 'unique' parts are more expensive, with less parts available new, so NOS parts command a premium and obviously ditto with good used........just saying,
Try to purchase Bimota parts for a 1986 SB5 1135 (87 factory produced and 71 "kits") There is next to nothing available at any price.
Your last comment on the harness, I don't follow the point your making, except yes it obviously could....cheers Ian

Madness! And yes our mates at ASIMCA can get a bit... enthusiastic... but exactly as Gary says make the right offer on the right item and you can get yourself a good deal. I think they inflate the prices knowing they'll take far less... but hoping someone will pay up. Play the game and you'll likely win with them.

Thanks Ian ......... was just making a perhaps too subtle correlation between the inreasing cost of rare nos stuff and subsequent expectations when selling a restored bike.

G'day Gary, The bikes that command the BIG Dollars are the "survivor bikes" which for whatever reason have made it through the last +or- 35 years without being badly damaged or modified and usually with low miles/kilometres and little use. A restored bike, even with all original Suzuki parts will never compare with the "survivor bikes" or command the same sort of dollars, often these bikes are "over restored" by well meaning enthusiastic owners. Our beloved Katanas were only a mass produced consumer item when new and the fit and finish were never anything to write home about, just look for example the welding on the frames. There's parts you can never restore to original ie seat covers sewn instead of welded and losing the contours on the rear, usually never in the correct material or colour (although some are close) These restored bikes will never be "original" no matter how many genuine Suzuki parts are used on the restoration.
My opinion is based on my years at the Australian Motorcycle Museum and will probably irritate the owners of many a "restored" to "original" bike.
While I'm on my "soap box" , it is usually the first model of any motorcycle in the "least popular" colour that bring the big dollars, and it is usually the last of a model that is the better bike.
.
Now it will seam odd that I prefer my bikes sensibly modified, knowing that i'll in all probability never see all my dollars again.
.
Thank for listening, cheers Ian:)
.
PS.I have a rear fender to suit your bike, you can have if you want.
