I want to add a list of acronyms that Suzuki uses on its bikes to my webpages. I'll add some generic ones that apply to their bikes, but I'm mainly after the Suzuki jargon...

Off the top of my head to get the ball rolling:

Generic:

DOHC = Double Over Head Cam
ECU = Electronic Control Unit
ECM = Electronic Control Module
EFI = Electronic Fuel Injection
PAIR = Pulsed (secondary) AIR system
TPS = Throttle Position Sensor


Suzuki:

TSCC = Twin Swirl Combustion Chamber
SACS = Suziki Advanced Cooling System
SET = Suzuki Exhaust Tuning
SRAD = Suzuki Ram Air Direct
STVA = Secondary Throttle Valve Actuator

Cough up

:laugh I had a "Slingshot" GSXR, it used to piss me off when people called it a slingshot :rant. Just like I cringe when I hear the word SRAD.

They were a CV carb that had half round slides in it. The pre "slingshot" models had the flatslides with accelerator pump.

Yeah Steve,
That SRAD moniker some people use to identify the GSXR is :puke
I've heard people say "SaaRad" "SooRad" "S Rad" but all I can do is laugh as it is so not rad to call a bike by it's induction system acronym! There are so many of these Suzuki acronyms I'm not sure you will ever get them all. Here's a few for your list. Off my 86' GSXR1100 you have quite a few. From the factory shop manual it describes the engine type as: four-stroke, air-cooled with SACS, DOHC, TSCC. If you didn't know the acronyms listed you would be SOL!

You can add "NEAS" which is used to describe the very non-functional electric anti-dive system found on the early GSXR forks. It refers to that little dark gold colored cylinder on the bottom, front of each fork leg. I just scanned the manual & it doesn't say anything about what this acronym stands for. The manual just tells you to be aware that the NEAS unit can leak fork oil & if it does you need to replace it. I am pretty sure what most of the acronym stands for; it is "Electric Anti-dive System" but the only thing I can come up with for the "N" is "Non-functional" or possibly "Nevermind the."

LOL

The brake calipers on that bike (both front & rear brakes) have plastic caps that go over the top of the caliper body. They have large "DOP" raised letters on them. That stands for "Dual Opposed Piston" or is that "Dinky Obsolete Piss"?

:laugh
