    Welcome to the Australian Suzuki Katana Owners Group!

    Having grown so rapidly over the years, (we've had to update some information) with our memberships well into the hundreds and still increasing, we are gaining more recognition from around the world as a worthy and reliable forum you can count on. Continuing our work to keep this forum open to people like yourself around the world. Keeping our information reliable and updated is one of our many tasks. Keeping our members well informed is our priority too. Being here, you have taken your first step to discover more about this classic motorcycle with its own unique history that sets it apart from others. When the Katana first appeared in the 1980's it was revered as an advanced aerodynamically designed production motorcycle for its time. This came about when Suzuki approached Hans Muth to design something new and different, they were about to embark into an era of motorcycling that will forever change the motorcycling industry.This site allows for many to find and meet up with fellow Katana fans (we also have contents on other bikes as many of our members will have more than one bike). To date we are quite the popular forum. As these classic bikes age they become more of our history, as so many people can recall them from their first appearance into the market. The early eightie's saw the introduction of both the GSZ1000, GSX750, GSX1100 bike both for the privated sector and in the motorcycle racing. Strangers to the Katana fall in love with its unique style and as many of us, we fall in love with its bond with our early lives. There is and will always be a place in peoples hearts for these wonderful classics. This forum allows for you and friends to come and join in on friendly stories, helpful hands with issues, get together for a drink or BBQ. They are not just a bike, they bring people together. The forum itself whilst open and free to all, though we still need to keep out the ugly spammers thus registration required, provides information and friends from afar and next door. We have sections for State and Territories, including our friends from overseas somewhere they can talk, ride, or gather together for a friendly ride. Other areas of the forums have been set aside for subscribers and members for a more private chat so as to keep their private information out of the public areas. Events are posted strategically so members do not miss out. And we have a D.I.Y. section for those with sound knowledge of bikes to be able to find information to assist them with repairing thier bikes. And you may also find the clssifieds section enjoyable where you can post something for sale or in the wanted section if you require a part or bike.

    Takahiro San, I think I have a set of wheels without tyres fitted. I will weight them tomorrow.

    Cheers,

    There is some debate about the 'tubeless' designation on GSX and Katana rims...


    Depends on who you talk to, but the very early
