Could anyone tell me what type of decals are correct for a metallic blue GT380M (or A) and where they should all go?
I am curious as to whether the side panels should have "Suzuki Motor Co Ltd" in white or black, for example.
Also where should all the warning stickers be sited?
Thank you in advance for any insight you may have to offer.
Tom

Here's an M model in Candy Gypsy Red:

There aren't many factory pictures of the left hand sides of the bikes unfortunately, but from what I can see, the "Suzuki Motor Co Ltd" is in white text on ALL colours of side panel, and of course the CCI sticker on the right side panel too.

Chain warning sticker on the top shroud of the left-hand rear shock. Crap disc brake warning on right fork leg :)

I'm guessing you have or going to buy one of those label/decal sets sold on ebay, Z1 Enterprises, Diablo Reproduction Decals and others?

Yes, same part number on the Suzuki Co. decal ....all of them are white and used on other models also including T500. Do you need a source for them? There are a few. I got mine from CMSNL but because of CMSNL's shipping cost, it would not be worth it unless you were ordering a lot of other parts at the same time as I did.

The same CCI decal is used on various models. The CCI decals available from Suzuki now have just a very slight difference. Here is an original one, letters slightly bolder. Image

Some of the locations mentioned here are a little vague but between the pictures I posted and further help from members, hopefully you will get it sorted out. Good Luck

I'm just guessing the one under the seat is a battery warning label?

That is very helpful. Thank you all for your replies.
Yes I plan to get a set from ebay. But I had noticed some had black lettering and some had white. I will go with the white lettering.
Does anyone know where the tyre pressure sticker goes?

Well, I can see why you thought there may have been a black version if you saw this ebay listing....

Surely those black version 'Suzuki Co' decals there are just his display version :?: I hope so. The lettering on the actual decal on its' white backing is a bit hard to see, especially in a picture sometimes.

In Suzuki America's parts fiches, there is only one part number for that decal, if it came in a different color, obviously the part number would be different.


EDIT: Then there is the chance that all warning labels on this bike may have not been installed in all markets.

I think you can pretty much use these locations of GT750 labels as a guide also.....they seem to be following somewhat the same pattern as your GT380.

That is very precise and useful. Thank you so much. Now I should be able to get them fitted properly.
