Headquartered in Japan, Suzuki Motor Corporation is a multinational business that manufactures automobiles, ATVs, motorcycles, marine engines, wheelchairs and a variety of small internal combustion engines.

Founded in 1909 as a manufacturer of weaving looms for a booming silk industry, Suzuki began building cars in 1937 that were powered by a then-innovative, liquid-cooled, four-stroke, four-cylinder engine. It featured a cast aluminum crankcase and gearbox and delivered 13-horsepower from a displacement of less than 800 cc.

The company was forced to give up its automobile manufacturing during World War II and after the war it returned to constructing looms The United States government approved the export of cotton to Japan, which appeared to provide a boost to the textile market, but by 1951 the domestic market collapsed.

As a result, Suzuki returned to manufacturing motor vehicles including motor-bicycles, two-wheel vehicles powered by a motor. Known as the Power Free, by 1952 it was being powered by a 36 cc one horsepower, two-stroke engine. An innovative double-sprocket gear system allowed the rider to either pedal with the engine assisting, pedal without engine assist, or simply disconnect the pedals and run on engine power only. The new democratic government granted Suzuki a financial subsidy so that it could continue research on the vehicle.

By 1954, Suzuki was producing 6,000 motorcycles a month.

Today, the company manufactures a number of motorcycle models including the GSR750 (also known as the GSX-S750) and the GSR600.

Unveiled in 2011, the GSR750 features a 6-speed transmission with multi-plate clutch and a 749 cc, liquid-cooled, DOHC inline 4-cylinder fuel injected engine with 16 valves that delivers 106-horsepower.

The rider has the capability of adjusting the brightness of the instrument cluster that include an easy-to-read analogue tachometer and a large digital LCD speedometer with average fuel consumption meter, gear position indicator, fuel gauge, odometer/trip meter and a clock.

The current generation GSX-R750, also called Gixxer, was introduced in 2011 and is the longest produced GSX-R 750 series without any major changes. The cycle includes Italian made Brembo brake calipers in front and Nissin calipers in back. It is 20-pounds (9 kilograms) lighter than the model made before 2011 and includes a "back torque limiting" clutch that permits slicker downshifting. It also includes a lightweight Showa Big Piston Fork and a Showa rear shock. The engine power produced on the rear wheel is 127.9-horsepower at 12,600 rpm. Torque at the rear wheel is 55.7 lb-ft (75.5 N-m) at 11,100 rpm.

Originally introduced in 2006, the current Suzuki GSR600 includes a 599 cc 16v inline four engine, fully adjustable rear suspension and street fighter styling.

For owners of Suzuki GSX-R750, GSR750, GSX-S750 and the GSR600, K&N offers the K&N SU-6006 replacement air filter.

The filter is designed to replace the stock air filter element of the Suzuki models and is also designed to boost the engine's horsepower and torque. Since the filter features pleated media, there are more surfaces and larger filtration area assuring long service intervals.

The filter includes multiple layers of cotton gauze that has been treated with a special grade of filter oil. As a result, it can catch and hold dirt particles in place until it comes time to clean the filter. This helps to assure excellent filtration.

K&N is so sure of the quality of the motorcycle air filter it offers a Million Mile Limited Warranty®. That means that K&N promises that the filter will last for up to 10 years or 1,000,000 miles before it needs to be replaced.

In addition, the filter is washable and reusable. To help you be certain that you can use it over and over again, K&N offers air filter cleaner kits that cleanse the filter in a few short steps.
