I think the dodgy electrics was a 70s/80s Suzuki thing, my 82 GS550E I had in 87/88 suffered from this too.
Rode 3 GS250T over the years, the “custom” variant of the GSX and quite liked them all. Also rode a rare late GSX250 with Katana type styling. Better than a Superdream, but no LC!
Biking is relatively on the move
