Suzuki Ident.

I just picked up an old Suzuki sled, and can't find anything or anywhere to identify what make and model and year the sled is. All I find is that AC took them over. The engine and body model is SM20. Any help will be greatly accepted.

Looks like a 1972 XR400. 395cc Suzuki SM20 Motor. Twin Mikuni VM26 carbs If you need any info as far as ignition specs, carb setting, plug type, torque specs, etc, I have some I can share with you.

Thanks! She fires and runs like a champ. Still would like to tear the carbs apart and clean them. I just wanted to know the year so I could do look up things. I need a track as it doesn't have one, don't even know where to look for one since ebay doesn't show any results for that sled.

According to my service book, that engine will deliver 35hp @ 6000 rpm and is a case reed design with 2 VM26 Mikuni slide carbs.
It should also have Salsbury clutches on it.

kccats, I thought so, and for the price to take both of them I really couldn't say no! I will post pics again once she is back to the way she should be. Don't know if I mention she fired right up... with a blast of motivation to get fuel pumping through the lines :P

If that sled still has the Salbbury clutch still on it i would take it off and throw it away. They have tendency to blow apart a cuz injury. Replace it with a 94c comet. Ive seen brand new one with metal fatigue and cracking tat were new n the box.DONT RISK IT GET A NEW CLUCTH! !!!!
