Hi ya k2t2 fyi my new 2022 suzuki gt started knocking not tapping at anytime, the knocking would start at 2000 revs while at a standstill , I rode the bike up to 6000 klm to see if it got worse or altered in any way ! no it didnt ?? sent a video with knocking to Suzuki and dealer involved in Wa and after they fitted a new cam tensioner refused to acknowledge the knocking was still there so no warranty was accepted or covered so I was left with a new bike that was knocking badly and couldnt sell it like that so sold it back to dealer for a substantial loss and moved on ! many thanks Suzuki and CO .
That's brutal! Has anyone heard what the actual problem is??

"Worthless to anyone" might be a bit strong...lol....but I share your frustration

Interesting thread. I just bought a GT+ but am waiting for the bags before I take it from the dealer. Can't ride now because of weather so who cares.

Anyways, I've had a few GSXRs ('02, '05, and '06) and they were all rattly/noisy. My last one, the 2006 GSX-R1000, was noisy from day one until I sold it a few years ago. Never had an issue with it. Unfortunately, this kid I sold it to was hit by a tractor trailer on it so that bike is no more which broke my heart. The kid only had minor injuries which was very lucky.

I wanted this bike because I loved the K5/K6 gixxers. This thing should be a comfy K5.

I finally got mine comfy :) the big wins were bar risers, moving the controls inward, rotating the bar back a bunch and drilling new holes to get the controls rotated better. Nicer rear shock and fork internals help a lot too.

I bought two GSX-S1000GT's (long story) and neither has made a cam chain noise after 1,800 km on each bike. I've sold the reflective blue bike now and kept the triton blue bike so I'll keep on listening for the noise but so far so good.
